Can you make LST radiators more aesthetically pleasing?

  • 11 Jul 2019

Contour discusses maintaining colour schemes or themes while also providing safe heating solutions for a variety of spaces.

In hospital wards, where situations can often be upsetting or distressing, creating a fully rounded colour scheme that can help create a calmer environment can ease the mental pressure felt by patients, relatives and even staff, who handle stressful situations on a daily basis.

To help account for this, Contour can supply LST radiators in a variety of different colours that will blend in with the colour scheme of the space.

Working from a RAL Chart, Contour can create the ideal colour for your space, fitting in with any theme. For example, working with a client to produce LSTs for children’s hospital ward, we produced green LST Radiators to match with the jungle theme throughout the space.

LST Radiators in different colours can also have safety benefits. In wards for those suffering with illnesses such as dementia, it can be confusing to differentiate between white radiator covers and other white goods products such as toilets causing embarrassment and distress.

By making the LST radiators a similar colour to the walls, we can create blended environments that does not confuse vulnerable patients, giving them back their dignity by eliminating the risk of unsanitary incidents in public wards and communal areas.

In schools and hospitals, environments have to be nurturing and engaging to help stimulate and calm those within it.

Large, clinical features such as LST radiators can be particularly off-putting in settings such as hospital wards where it’s important to maintain a sense of calm.

You can add colour or decoration to your LST radiator once it’s installed through the inclusion of stickers or graphics that blend it into your environments.
