AIANO supplies wire mesh radiator guards for schools

Wire mesh radiator guards for schools

Canary yellow radiators guards for schools? It’s fun to have guards in bright colours, but they also serve a valuable purpose for the visually impaired as AIANO discovered. AIANO can manufacture bespoke wire mesh guards to suit most needs. and, indeed, we are regularly asked to provide wire mesh radiator guards for schools, such as our previous projects for Dollis Junior School and Hanover Primary School. One such instance of designing a bespoke guard to meet a very specific requirement was a recent project we carried out for Cypress Primary School based in South London.

Bespoke yellow radiator guards for Cypress Primary School

The school required a number of wire mesh radiator guards to prevent children touching the hot surface of the heaters. The school also wanted to make sure that the guards were highly visible as they had a visually impaired student to consider. They requested that the wire mesh heater guards should be finished in a bright canary yellow colour to help the visually impaired child to see them. This would reduce the risk of an accident caused by the child colliding with them.

AIANO are able to meet most requirements. In cases like this we normally ask our customers to send us an example of the colour they require and are in turn able to source powder coating that is either an exact match or close to an exact match.

The colour yellow is known to be the most luminous of all the colours in the spectrum, and it is the colour that captures our attention more than any other. Thus it is often used to signify some danger or hazard. Like amber traffic lights, it means ‘caution’, ‘take care’ and this is an important message around hot radiators. However, in almost every culture yellow also represents sunshine and happiness.In this case, the AIANO yellow radiator guards, as well as providing a clear sign of their presence, help create a sunny cheerful atmosphere in the school.

AIANO carried out a site survey for the school as they did not feel confident in providing the measurements themselves. The radiators had pipes and valves which needed to be taken into account when designing the guards which invariably means that a bespoke solution is required to ensure the guards fit correctly.

AIANO took precise measurements and photographs of every radiator and every stretch of heating pipework. Every guard for the project was individually designed taking into account the size of the radiators and the length and angle of all pipework. At the end of the AIANO site survey a design was produced for each individual radiator and pipe guard.
