What are LST radiators?

  • 25 Jun 2019

Contour discusses LST radiators and how they work to create a safer heating solution for schools, hospitals and commercial environments.

LST stands for low surface temperature. A low surface temperature radiator is one that stays within a certain temperature boundary to meet the recommended safety standard.

They are often found in settings where vulnerable people spend time. This includes:

– Schools
– Nurseries
– Hospitals
– Residential care homes
– GP Surgeries
– Mental health wards

LST radiators are comprised of two elements; the radiator and the radiator cover. The LST radiator is designed to maximise the heat output into the room while creating a safe space where the risk of burns and scalds is reduced for anybody coming into contact with them.

Contour’s LST Radiators are designed with a safety first and customer focused attitude. Contour provides safer heating solutions for schools, hospitals and care homes through close concentration on where radiators can be improved for maximum safety.

In hospitals, there is a growing concern about the presence of potentially harmful microbes such as MRSA and E.coli. In schools there is a drive to improve absenteeism through the creation of more hygiene conscious features.

Contour LST radiators are coated with BioCote® anti-microbial technologies to inhibit the growth of potentially harmful bacteria that could otherwise grow on the surface of an LST radiator.

Contour understands that a one-size-fits-all approach isn’t going to suit everybody. To cater to customer’s requirements, Contour offers a bespoke service to ensure that our LST radiators are an exact fit for your spaces.
