In environments where LST radiators are required for safety, it’s important to find heating solutions that match the aesthetics of the setting. This is because, in certain spaces, the aesthetics of a room can impact upon those using the area.

Here at Contour, we often speak to people about how we can maintain their carefully planned colour schemes or themes while installing safe heating solutions.

Change The Colour

LST Radiators Lifespan | Contour Heating | Shifnal, West Midlands


Did you know that colours can affect your mood? Certain colours have a calming affect on the mind, lowering the heart rate and making us will more settled within ourselves.

In hospital wards, where situations can often be upsetting or distressing, creating a fully rounded colour scheme that can help create a calmer environment can ease the mental pressure felt by patients, relatives and even staff, who handle stressful situations on a daily basis.

To help account for this, Contour can supply LST radiators in a variety of different colours that will blend in with the colour scheme of the space.

Working from a RAL Chart, we can create the ideal colour for your space, fitting in with any theme. For example, working with a client to produce LSTs for children’s hospital ward, we produced green LST Radiators to match with the jungle theme throughout the space.

LST Radiators in different colours can also have safety benefits.

In wards for those suffering with illnesses such as dementia, it can be confusing to differentiate between white radiator covers and other white goods products such as toilets causing embarrassment and distress.

By making the LST radiators a similar colour to the walls, we can create blended environments that does not confuse vulnerable patients, giving them back their dignity by eliminating the risk of unsanitary incidents in public wards and communal areas.
