Anti-Ligature Radiator Guard
As a key part of the low surface temperature offer, Contour Casings has developed a specialist range of LST radiators for use in secure environments such as mental health hospitals and prisons, where reducing the risk of potential ligature points is of paramount importance.
As death from hanging can often occur when an individual is not fully suspended, the inspection of psychiatric wards and cells for potential ligature points should focus on fixtures and fittings at all heights. Grilles and external TRVs in LST radiators pose particular danger.
Ligature points on Contour Casings anti-ligature LST radiator ranges have therefore been identified and addressed;
Secure anti-ligature mesh is fitted behind all grilles.
An anti-ligature TRV shroud has been developed to make it far more difficult to attach ligatures.
A wide range of security fixings and fasteners are available
Internal fixings are used to prevent unauthorised removal or tampering.
An anti-ligature base plate is also available for wall mounted guards.
A separate range of products for other anti-ligature applications, such as ceiling grilles, has also been developed.
