Contour 21+

The CONTOUR 21+ solution has been developed using a rigorous, scientific approach. Our most advanced healthcare solution yet, they are the products of years of experience and research.

Contour 21+ basin

The clinical solution that leaves nothing to chance

Our new Contour 21+ basin with SmartGuard+ has a new smooth hydrophilic glaze containing antimicrobial additives, and this, together with an innovative shape, makes it our most advanced basin for healthcare yet.

Supporting the battle against infection

Introducing SmartGuard and SmartGuard+ – our innovative new antimicrobial glaze that offers built-in product protection against bacteria.

SmartGuard is an antimicrobial agent that is incorporated into the ceramic glaze. It contains ionic silver, which is proven to inhibit the growth of bacteria. As the antimicrobial is built into the glaze, the effects will last the lifetime of the product providing protection day in, day out.

To provide an even more hygienic surface we have introduced SmartGuard+. This combines the benefits of SmartGuard antimicrobial glaze with a far smoother glass like surface.

Supporting the battle against infection

Standard hospital basin risk

Our research shows that with standard hospital basins, running water can splash onto surrounding floors and surfaces. These splashes have been measured up to two metres away from the basin, potentially falling on beds, clothing and hospital equipment.

Unique fin design

It’s important that washing facilities reduce opportunities for the transfer of bacteria within basins. That’s why the Contour 21+ range incorporates our unique Hydrofin which is moulded into the ceramic and cuts splashing by over 90%.

Unique fin design

Reduced splash

The Hydrofin design, in combination with the larger surface area of the basin, means that water hits at a shallower angle and its splash is deflected to either side of the basin. It is fully effective when paired with the Markwik 21+ mixer.

Reduced splash

Simplified waste

New waste and connection pipe allows for fast drainage of water, debris and organic material.

Simplified waste

Bacteria resistant ergonomics

New angles improve flow and prevent standing water

Some non-harmful bacteria help transfer genetic material, which in turn allows disease-causing bacteria to acquire resistance genes. That’s why we created new angles within the basin design to improve water flow and drainage. Thinner, more angular rims also aid drainage and prevent standing water.

Attention to detail

Less to clean
Basin design features a smaller back area to reduce the surface area that needs cleaning. The larger bowl area helps contain splashes.

Easier to install
Fixings are made of stainless steel for chemical resistance and anti-corrosion. Simplified, “click to fit” attachments and a flexible waste mean installation can be carried out by one person. Our new back outlet basin, reduces fitting from eighteen minutes for two people down to seven minutes for one person.

Efficient trap design
An air admittance valve in the Contour 21+ trap prevents pressure build-up from forcing trap water into the basin. The trap material also contains an antimicrobial additive to help prevent pathogen growth. Armitage Shanks is the only manufacturer to include this feature as standard.

The ultimate solution

The Markwik 21+ deck mixer and Contour 21+ basin combination is the first truly clinical deck mixer solution. The mixer is demountable for disinfection and maintenance, while the basin features a hidden trap behind a back outlet.

Contour 21+ toilet

Featuring rimless design and antimicrobial surfaces, our latest WC helps create the most hygienic healthcare environments possible.

Rimless design

Traditional WC rims provide an ideal habitat for bacteria. The design of Contour 21+ WCs removes this haven for pathogens whilst making the units easier and quicker to clean.

Rimless design

A cleaner view

The new injector slot and increased visible space within the bowl make it easier to see where cleaning is needed because there are no nooks and crannies for harmful bacteria to hide.

A cleaner view

Improved flush

Contour 21+ is designed so that water is channeled over more of the bowl, helping to keep it cleaner.

Improved flush

Antibacterial coating

SmartGuard protection is manufactured into WCs to prevent the build-up of bacteria. The smooth SmartGuard+ glaze on the pan inhibits soiling, which reduces the opportunity for bacteria to take hold.

Longer outlet pipe

A longer outlet pipe on extended bowl versions makes installation easier and allows for a simple, quick inspection of water connection joints. 

Back-to-wall fixation uses dual floor fixings to ensure greater stability of the pan.

Toilet seats

Durable thermo-set toilet seats with seat retainers and stainless steel hinges give the feeling of quality, strength and stability and ensure that the seat doesn’t move during use or lateral transfer from a wheelchair.
