Limited wall space and in need of adequate heating solutions? Contour offers vertical LST radiators that are designed to suit whatever space you have available and to maintain high standards for your heating solutions.
Areas such as bathrooms are often small, particularly in residential care homes or mental health wards where they are designed as en-suites. Here, small LST radiators are required. Additionally, in school halls and other spaces with narrow wall spaces, a vertical LST radiator can be installed to give the space the best possible heating without dominating the walls.
In these spaces, it can be difficult to find the right amount of wall space to provide adequate heating. This is where vertical LST radiators can be a huge benefit. Because wall space is limited, having a radiator that uses the height of the wall rather than the
width means that less space is lost to the LST radiator leaving more room for additional appliances or safety features.
Vertical LST radiators can be installed behind doors or be wall mounted to leave as much floor space as possible.
In communal areas, such as in GP surgery waiting rooms, a vertical LST radiator can improve the usability of the space by opening up more areas for furniture, such as seats, which may have otherwise been restricted. Certain areas may undergo a retro-fit to upgrade the current heating solution for compliance purposes. This can often occur in areas that are adapting for care purposes.
In these situations, it’s often found that in bathrooms there are heated towel rails that aren’t a low surface temperature radiator. To make these appliances compliant with low surface temperature guidelines and to make the spaces safer for residents, LST radiator covers are installed to protect against the risk of injuries and burns.
Vertical LST radiator covers are ideal for these situations as the nature of heating towel rails means that a tall radiator cover is required rather than a wide one. Contour can install vertical LST radiators into a space to ensure that they are safe for residents and staff alike. They offer protection from injuries and burns without taking up the limited wall space often found in bathrooms.
