Stelrad’s Low Surface Temperature Radiators Contribute To Special Housing Development

Stelrad Radiators low surface temperature radiators (LST) have
been selected for a housing development in Torfaen in South Wales, designed for people with physical and mental disabilities. 42 LST radiators have been supplied for the project, the majority of which are the latest LST I Plus models. There are also 14 LST i Plus Xtra Protection models, designed to be used in areas that experience high humidity such as wet rooms.

The Ty’r Hen Ysgol development, at the former Ysgol Panteg Primary School site in Pontypool, features seven new bespoke apartments to meet multi-disciplinary needs across many diverse physical and mental disabilities. Experiencing the wide range of features that have been incorporated in these apartments to keep the tenants safe and comfortable is extremely
moving and highlights high level understanding of the needs of this group of potential tenants.

Low surface temperature radiators offer ‘safe to touch’ heating and are being specified increasingly across the UK for situations where the heating
needs to meet NHS Guidance for ‘Safe Hot Water and surface temperature’ – in hospitals, care and nursing homes, as well as sheltered housing, schools and nurseries as well as an increased amount of housing that may be used by vulnerable people during that home’s lifetime.

LST radiators are designed to ensure they offer as much protection as possible to those for whom they are designed to provide heating. As well as ensuring the casing never exceeds 43 degrees C, they also include rounded corners and edges to the design to avoid damage from sharp edges.
