Contour Heating Products Ltd discusses the benefits of installing LST radiators in facilities such as schools, residential care homes, hospitals and mental health wards.
The biggest benefit of LST radiators is that they are a safer heating solution than traditional radiators. LSTs keep surface temperatures of the radiator down, reducing the risk of burns if somebody made contact with them. The low surface temperature of LST radiators significantly reduces the risk of burns.
NHS guidelines state that radiators in hospitals should be cleaned at least once a week, but this can be difficult with a traditional radiator as it typically takes two cleaning personnel 30 minutes to clean. Contour LST radiators, on the other hand, include RotaRad kits into their design. With RotaRad, LST radiators can be cleaned by one person in five minutes, reducing the overall annual cost of employing personnel for cleaning. For schools and hospitals, who are often experiencing tighter budgets, this can be hugely beneficial in reducing financial costs.
When comparing LST radiators to alternative heating systems, such as underfloor heating, it’s important to note that underfloor heating can take up to eight hours to reach optimal temperature. With LST Radiators it takes a matter of minutes, making them more efficient in terms of functionality as well as installation ease.
Other benefits include the fact that LST Radiators can be installed wherever best suit you depending on the space available.
In addition, Contour LST radiators are made with 1.5mm Zintec mild steel as standard, or alternatively, 2mm is available if required. Therefore, this makes Contour’s LST radiators more durable than others on the market. They are designed for locations where durability is primary such as hospitals where people are rushing past the radiators and schools where students are likely to bang bags against the covers as they pass. This also makes our LST radiators extra resistant to corrosion.
Contour supplies its LST radiators as one-piece constructions. This improves durability because it removes screws or bolts that would fit together a multi-piece unit that is at risk of coming loose. With a single-piece unit, this isn’t a problem.
Contour LST Radiators also come with the following additional options to further optimise the safety benefits of installing them:
– Pencil proof grilles to stop fingers getting caught and small objects being pushed through the grille
– Bullnose corners and radius edges to reduce the risk of serious injury in the event of a fall
– BioCote® antimicrobial technology to reduce the growth of harmful bacteria by 99.5%
LST radiators provide safer heating solutions with better durability and efficiency. They are also superior to underfloor heating in terms of ease of installation and heating times.
With Contour LST radiators you will see all the benefits of installing them with the additional reassurance of features such as BioCote® antimicrobial technology and pencil proof grilles to protect small fingers and stop things being lost inside the covers.
