Are LST radiators efficient?

Are LST radiators efficient?

Jaga LST radiators incorporate the energy-efficient Low-H2O heat exchanger enclosed safely inside, preventing the outer casing surface temperature exceeding 43°C. By comparison, standard steel panel type radiators can reach surface temperatures of 75°C or higher, matching that of the boiler output temperature.

What does LST stand for in radiators?

Low surface temperature (LST) radiators are a safer alternative to traditional radiators, and are well suited to all kinds of healthcare buildings, residential accommodation, schools and nurseries.

Where are LST radiators required?

LST radiators are required in schools, hospitals, residential care homes, doctor’s surgeries and disabled bathroom as a matter of protection to vulnerable people in those spaces.

What temperature are LST radiators?

Low Surface Temperature Radiators, or LSTs as they are commonly referred, are especially designed radiators that don’t exceed a surface temperature of 43°C.

How do LST radiators work?

LST radiators work by pulling in air from the bottom grilles. This intake of air then rises through the cover, where it warms up-thanks to the hot water passing through the system. The warm air is then emitted back into the room via the top and front-facing grilles.

What are LST heaters?

What is an LST Heater? An LST heater is any form of heater (electric or wet central heating) that is cooler to touch than most heaters. The NHS Estates Health guidelines say that to reduce the risk of burns the surface temperature of the heater should not get above 43⁰C.

How do Stelrad radiators work?

Hot water rises in one water channel and is distributed equally over the front panel. A unique system then directs it to the back panel where it is spread equally over the back panel water channels. The front panel of the Stelrad Radical radiator reaches a temperature of 62.5°C after 8.5 minutes.

Do primary schools require LST radiators?

There is no clear answer to this question, and the guidelines will very much depend on the Local Authority of the given area. Some authorities specify LST radiators irrespective of use, whilst others will have age limits or other determining factors.

What are the advantages of underfloor heating?

Pros of Underfloor Heating

  • Energy Efficient Heating. There are two types of radiant heating, electric and water-based systems.
  • Effortless to Run.
  • More Space & Design Freedom.
  • Works with all Floor Coverings.
  • Safety and Comfort.
  • Ease of Installation.

What is a low temperature radiator?

Low temperature radiators are environmentally-friendly With low temperature heating, the supply temperature of the central heating water lies between 45°C and 55°C instead of between 75°C and 85°C as with traditional heating. Consequently, the efficiency of your radiator is significantly improved.

What are low heat radiators?

How big is a Stelrad low surface temperature radiator?

They may look large, but Stelrad low surface temperature radiators typically have a wall projection of just 132mm. Width is dictated by how big of a radiator you want and we have models that range from 560mm to 1960mm. How long does it take to have an LST radiator delivered?

Which is the best low surface temperature radiator?

Low surface temperature radiators (LSTs) are a particular style of radiator that is very important for specific buildings. At Trade Radiators we stock a small range from Stelrad that we think are some of the best you’ll find anywhere. Take a look at what we have in stock and find out more about LST radiators.

Which is the best safety radiator in the UK?

For the ultimate in safety radiators, look no further than the Safety Series. Stelrad’s range of Low Surface Temperature (LST) radiators is the most comprehensive in the UK, with sizes and models to suit all applications.
