New radiator covers to improve heating at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Cambridgeshire

Specially designed radiator guards, designed to deliver a superior level of hygiene have been installed as part of a major BIM designed refurbishment project at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Cambridgeshire, a recent news report in the local media was able to reveal.

Incorporating BioCote anti-microbial technology, Contour radiator guards are proven to significantly reduce bacteria compared to untreated alternatives. This natural silver-based additive reduces levels of harmful bacteria and infection such as E.coli, MRSA and H1N1 by up to 99.99% over a 2hr period.

The patented full access front door of the DeepClean LST radiator guard design provides cleaning staff complete access to internal surfaces of the cover, without the need for Estates personnel to assist in the removal of the radiator cover. This makes cleaning of potentially unhygienic radiator guards and quick, safe and routine operation, saving on cleaning costs and reducing the risk of HAI’s in the healthcare environment.

Unfortunately, radiator covers can sometime affect heating patterns, and this is specifically the reason why any modern building, especially those designed to meet the specific requirements set in the healthcare industry, will certainly require a very effective energy management system to be put in place. That’s exactly where the HeatSave programmable wireless thermostatic valves can really come in handy.

The HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves represent a very good solution for the healthcare industry, where energy costs are 2nd only to labour costs. That’s because the TRVs can help customers slash their energy bills by up to an impressive 30 percent by allowing them to thoroughly control the heating patterns for every single one of their radiators.

Moreover, it’s quite likely that the hospital could benefit from the financial advantages provided by the Government’s Green Deal scheme, given the fact that the HeatSave valves represent an approved measure to control radiators under the aforementioned programme.
