How do you know which LST radiator to specify?

  • 12 Jul 2019

Contour discusses how you can understand which LST radiators to specify when installing them into your school, hospital, care home or other commercial space.

Depending on the type of space you are installing low surface temperature radiators into, you will have certain needs that need to be met.

For example, Contour recommends that if you are installing a heating solution into a residential care home then either a DeepClean LST radiator that could be either wall or floor mounted and either flat or sloping top would be ideal. Alternatively, Contour could also recommend the Covora LST radiator.

This would differ from if you were looking to install a heating solution into a space which had ligature concerns such as a mental health unit, prison or custody suite. In these spaces, Contour’s recommendation would be centred on addressing anti-ligature requirements in the heating
solution.

Contour offers a range of LST radiator sizes, starting from 500mm x 500 mm to 2200mm x 1045mm. These come in different types depending on the level of heat output that you need for the space:

– Type 11
– Type 12 (sometimes called a type 21)
– Type 22

Contour understands, however, that sometimes there are additional requirements that need to be addressed and that this can involve varying the sizes and the type of LST radiator that needs to be specified.

Therefore, Contour offers a type 33 LST radiator, which is the same as a type 22 LST, but it has an additional panel and convector as well as the double panel and convector that you would otherwise receive. This can improve the overall heat output dramatically.

Contour can also work outside of our standard sizes to accommodate for smaller or larger spaces that need bespoke options to create a heating solution that is suitable for the area available. This includes installing vertical LST radiators in spaces where we need to make use of the height of the wall if the width is limited.
