  • 14 Oct 2020

LST radiator guards are the part of the radiator responsible for ensuring individuals cannot burn themselves if they decide to or accidentally touch the radiator for any reason – Contour explain more here

Despite their level of safety, it is important LST radiators are placed in an optimal location in order to provide the highest comfort levels.

If it is placed in an area that causes disruption, staff and service users may find these radiators to be more of a hassle than a convenience.

Fortunately, Contour has compiled the best LST radiator locations, that nearly all its customers can use

The Best LST Radiator Location

Gone are the days of having to place LST radiators underneath a windowsill. It was often expected and required to place radiators underneath windowsills because of the single glazed windows that were used in buildings.

Most modern buildings offer double glazed windows and do not need to cancel the draft that comes from a single glazed window.

Now, the question still remains, ‘Where is the best LST radiator location?’ The answer is simple: wherever the room is the coldest.

The best LST radiator location will not be the same in every room. Rooms that have external doors that are opened often will see the greatest benefits by placing the LST radiator next to the door.

Individuals in larger rooms will find having the radiator in the centre along the back most wall will keep the room the warmest.

LST Radiator Location Considerations

It is important to remember that safety is still a factor when it comes to the location of LST radiators. If the radiator must go under the window because it does not fit anywhere else, ensure that curtains are appropriately adjusted so as not to obstruct the ventilation or heat output. 

In addition, radiators should not be obstructed by furniture. This will result in air not being able to circulate through the casing efficiently. 

LST Radiators in Bathrooms

If the bathrooms require a radiator, consider a model designed specifically to inhibit bacteria growth and reduce cross contamination.

Especially in the COVID-19 era, it is important to use a DeepClean LST radiator that reduces the presence of harmful germs.
