What heat outputs do LST radiators give?

  • 18 Feb 2019

A concern for many of Contour customers is that an LST radiator has a lower heat output than a standard radiator and that, therefore, they will need more radiators to make up the difference. However, this isn’t the case. 

In Contour’s LST Radiator range, there are three standard types of radiator to choose from to ensure customers can choose a radiator that gives out the right amount of heat for a space. These are:
– Type 11
– Type 12 (sometimes referred to as Type 21)
– Type 22

Type 11 radiators are made of a single panel and a single convector. Type 12 radiators have a double panel, but a single convector and Type 22 radiators have a double panel and double convector.

In our Covora LST radiator range, there are 140 different options for you to choose from. In our DeepClean LST radiator range, there are up to 300 options. These range from 450mm x 600mm, which would give you 191 watts of heat output, up to 750mm x 2200 giving 3393 watts.

Heat output can be affected by a number of factors, such as the length, height, depth of the radiator, and whether the radiator is wall mounted or floor mounted. Plus, the overall output of the radiator depends on the type and size of LST radiator that you have installed.

Depending on the type of radiator that you choose to install, you can expect heat outputs to suit the space. Smaller radiators of 450mm x 600mm in the Type 11 range would give ample output for a small bathroom, such as en-suite but larger LST radiators with greater outputs would naturally work better in larger spaces.
