How to know which LST radiators to specify

  • 19 Feb 2019

Contour discusses finding the right LST radiators depending on the type of space you are installing the radiators into and ensuring that all needs are met.

The below image shows how Contour would recommend particular LST radiators and other heating products based on the demands of the space.

Contour offers a range of sizes for its LST radiators, starting from 500mm x 500 mm to 2200mm x 1045mm. These come in different types depending on the level of heat output that you need for the space:
– Type 11
– Type 12 (sometimes called a type 21)
– Type 22

However, Contour understands that sometimes there are additional requirements that need to be addressed and that this can involve varying the sizes and the type of LST radiator that needs to be specified.

Contour also offers a type 33 LST radiator, which is the same as a type 22 LST, but it has an additional panel and convector as well as the double panel and convector that you would otherwise receive. This can improve the overall heat output dramatically.

Furthermore, Contour can also work outside of our standard sizes to accommodate for smaller or larger spaces that need bespoke options to create a heating solution that is suitable for the area available. This includes installing vertical LST radiators in spaces where Contour need to make use of the height of the wall if the width is limited.

To know which LST radiator to specify, it’s important to consider what type of environment you’re installing them into to ensure that you get the right type of radiator for you. If there are ligature concerns, you may need a different radiator to a space with low surface temperatures are the priority.

Contour work on a bespoke basis with its customers to ensure that the heating solutions that it brings you are an exact match for your space and needs.
