Contour talks designer LST radiators

  • 15 Mar 2019

Contour Heating is often asked if it can make designer adjustments to its LST radiators to make them less clinical-looking, so it has put together this blog post to explore the designer options available for customers.

LST Radiators are often thought of as being large and clinical looking, which can make the atmosphere feel intimidating to service users. Creating a product that makes a space feel more personal can make a huge difference in the way that people interact with it.

Contour can provide LST radiators with the logo of your schools, hospital or trust punched into the grille; making it part of the overall design, providing a more personal feel.

Contour can also create LST radiators designed to fit wall to wall rather than just over the radiator. This can be an option from a safety perspective or to remove the look of a radiator jutting out from the wall. Wall to wall features gives a smoother look to a space. This comes with an additional safety benefit as it removes the edging from the sides which could cause injuries with they are fallen again.

Plus, using Contour’s RAL Chart, you can select any colour for your LST radiators to make them blend seamlessly into any environment. For children’s hospitals, this can be particularly effective, removing the clinical look of a ward can relieve some of the distress from emotional situations. Contour can also consult with you to have radiator covers graphics-wrapped for a more individual look to the LST radiators – making spaces look more inviting and engaging for all.

Contour LST radiators come in sizes between 300mm x 300mm, with a 500mm x 550mm radiator cover and 2200mm x 1045mm. However, Contour can work outside of these parameters on a bespoke basis with clients, creating LST radiators to suit you.

Plus, in places where space is limited, Contour can also provide vertical solutions; creating a taller LST radiator for you, designed entirely around the available space. Ultimately, Contour can create bespoke designed LST radiators to suit any environment.
