Who should use air conditioning guards for safer heating?

  • 8 Dec 2020

Contour discusses which environments would benefit from protection services such as air conditioning units.

Air conditioning guards for mental health hospitals

Contour’s air conditioning guards are anti-ligature with safe edges and IP3x grilles to reduce injuries that can be life-threatening to individuals. This means that it would be very difficult for someone to inflict harm on themselves – particularly beneficial in mental health settings.

In addition, in these environments, vandalism may be more prone. Contour’s guards are made with Zintec protected steel in various gauges from 1.5mm-2mm to ensure the guards are strong and robust. Contour can also provide a strengthening strut to provide the front of the cover with additional strength.

Air conditioning guards for hospitals

With recent events especially, it’s important to keep the hospital environment as comfortable and as
hygienic as possible for patients, staff and visitors.

BioCote® is introduced at the manufacturing stage of the guards to present protection against various microbes: bacteria, mould, and some viruses. Working alongside cleaning regimes and hand hygiene, it delivers the ultimate hygiene protection.

In addition, all of Contour’s air conditioning guards provide easy access for cleaning, with drop-down hinged doors, the air conditioning units can be thoroughly cleaned. 

Air conditioning guards for schools

Contour’s air conditioning guards work well for school environments as the grilles are pre-punched with pencil proof grilles to prevent stationary or small items from being pushed through.

With this, children don’t have the risk of trapping their fingers in grilles or pushing pens/pencils through the grilles. The grille design uses 5.5mm wide radius grilles or IP3x grilles if required for demanding environments.

Air conditioning guards for public building

Air conditioning units in public settings will be used frequently and can be subject to damage. Therefore, it’ll be necessary to protect the air conditioning guard.

Contour’s air conditioning guards can transform old looking AC units for a more aesthetically
pleasing cover along with a more robust design from impacts and vandalism. With this, public spaces
will look more professional.

Finally, to ensure peace of mind, all guards are protected with a 5-year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials for 5 years from the purchase date.
