New anti-ligature radiator guard puts safety first without compromise

  • 16 May 2017

Contour Casings has launched a new anti-ligature radiator guard, which has been designed to overcome the issues that can arise from the installation of guards on uneven walls.

Developed in response to the of needs of mental health service providers to ensure both extra safety and ease of servicing, the DeepClean Extra IP3x guard fixes the problem of gaps between the radiator guard and wall if the surface is uneven.

DeepClean-Extra-IP3xThese gaps are traditionally filled with anti-pick mastic. However, mastic can stop ready access to inside the guards for cleaning and maintenance. 

By using an extra frame that sits between the wall and the top of the guard door, the DeepClean Extra IP3x door can be unlocked and opened easily, with pin-hex turn locks fitted as standard to both the front and top panels of the door. 

Gaps between the guard frame and a wall can still be eliminated with anti-pick mastic, but without impeding operation of the door.

The DeepClean Extra IP3x further ensures safety through its grille design, which is compliant with both the Home Office Police Buildings Design Guide – Custody, July 2009, section PD3.02.14 and British Standards test measuring for Ingress Protection, IP3x (BS EN 60529).

The DeepClean Extra IP3x guard carries as standard features common to the existing DeepClean anti-ligature range including:

  • Internal location of all wall and floor fixing points to protect against non-permitted access, removal or manipulation
  • Security fastenings throughout
  • For wall mounted anti-ligature radiator guards, anti-ligature base plates can be securely fixed to the base of a unit
  • 1.5mm mild steel construction ensures robust performance. Additional thicknesses of material are available as options depending on the installation environment.
  • Radius edges and bullnose corners protect in the event of a slip or fall, and prevent a DeepClean anti-ligature radiator being used to self-harm
  • Available in gradient and square top, floor or wall mounted variants
  • A full radiator and guard package is also available for DeepClean Extra IP3x, with single casing lengths from 500mm to 2000mm.
