Contour offers the ideal LST radiator solution for wet environments where the radiator may come into contact with water.
A constant presence of even small amounts of water can cause issues for metal appliances if they are not properly protected. If there is exposed metal on the radiator covers or the radiators themselves, the chance of rust developing goes up. If rust does occur, the integrity of the LST radiator can also be affected.
Therefore, this is a concern in environments where heating solutions need to be durable and robust, such as mental health wards, hospitals and care homes.
To ensure that LST radiators are suitable for wet environments where moisture levels are high, Contour can provide heating solutions that use materials specifically designed for this kind of setting.
Contour’s standard LST radiators are made from 1.5mm Zintec steel which has properties that help to protect the LST from rust and corrosion. However, for wet environments, the most suitable material that Contour can supply is magnelis steel.
This material has undergone an additional treatment stage which makes it more durable, and therefore better suited, to wet environments. The treatment stage is similar to hot-dipped galvanising but the process is more environmentally friendly, making magnelis a more sustainable option for these spaces.
LST radiators constructed from magnelis steel are installed into mental health spaces and areas that have anti-ligature concerns. If the environment is not a mental health care space then LST radiators are supplied with aluminium.
For additional reassurance, Contour’s LST radiators are coated in BioCote® powder coating which contains anti-microbial technology to help reduce the number of potentially harmful bacteria on the surface of the LST radiator – which is particularly beneficial for environments such as hospitals.
Contour LST radiators are designed to be more resistant to rust and corrosion. This makes its LST radiator suitable for wet environments across a number of sectors. The materials and powder coating create the ideal heating solutions for bathrooms, shower rooms and toilets throughout the education, healthcare and residential care sector.
