AIANO Heavy Duty Radiator Guards

Aiano Heavy Duty Radiator guards

Aiano Heavy duty storage heater guard

  •  – tough guards made from 1″ x 1″ mesh on an angle bar frame.
  •  – protection from damage and accidents
  •  – made at our London workshop
  •  – made from European & British steel
  •  – thoroughly tested
  •  – bespoke service

 

 

 

When expensive heating equipment needs to be protected against robust treatment, vandalism or other extreme environments, AIANO Heavy Duty Guards provide extra strength through their construction, design and materials. No guard can provide full-proof protection against determined vandalism or misuse, but the Aiano Heavy Duty guard offers extra peace of mind. These rugged guards are made from tough 22mm x 3mm steel angle bar and have extra support in the form of 25mm x 3mm flat bar, which strengthens the guard at its most vulnerable – on the front and top panels.

Aiano offers a small range of standard heavy duty guards to suit Dimplex storage heaters and their equivalents, see our website for more details. Alternatively we offer a bespoke service and can design a guard to your specific dimensions and requirements.

Technical Specification

Aiano Heavy Duty radiator guards are made from 22mm x 3mm angle bars, 25mm x 3mm flat bars and 25mm x 25mm x 12swg weld mesh. Holes are drilled in the angle bar frame to allow for fixing to the wall. The guards are powder coated white after manufacture.

Applications

Aiano Heavy Duty guards are particularly suitable for environments such as Territorial Army centres, stations, prisons and other environments where forceful contact may occur.

AIANO Traditional Radiator Guards

Historically, heater guards were made with half-inch mesh (1/2″ x 1/2″), for a solid-looking finish. This mesh can be requested now on any of our heater guard products. Aiano Traditional small-mesh radiator covers provide extra protection for small fingers, or if there is a risk of objects being pushed through the mesh.

On Aiano Traditional  heater guards, each panel or facet of the guard is welded on to a round bar frame, making a guard that is strong and built to last, as well as being arguably the most beautiful of our heater guards.

Technical Specification

Aiano Traditional radiator covers are made from 1/2″ x 1/2″ 16swg (12 x 12 x xxmm) weld mesh on a 5swg (5.38mm) round bar frame with welded lugs.  Every panel of the guard is mounted on a round bar frame.  The guards are powder coated white after manufacture.

Applications

Aiano Traditional small-mesh radiator guards are suitable for most environments, but are particularly popular in schools and nurseries.

AIANO Sloping Top Radiator Guards

AIANO sloping top radiator guards.

  •  – made with a sloping top to protect the heater
  •  – protection from damage and accidents

Heaters and guards can be a tempting target for people and children to sit on, or a convenient shelf  for a book or a coat, or that cup of coffee. This can impede the effectiveness of the heater, as well as representing a health and safety hazard. In the case of a library, it can lead to damage to precious books.

An Aiano sloping top heater guard prevents objects or people from resting on top of the guard or surface providing extra health & safety protection.  A sloping top can be added to our Classic, Traditional or Vario guard ranges of radiator cover.

Applications

Aiano Sloping Top radiator guards are suitable for any environments where it is important to discourage people or children from sitting on the guards or placing objects on top of the guards, in particular, schools, hospitals and libraries.

We hope this article will provide valuable guidance on how our different designs of radiator guard are suitable for different environments and requirements.
