LST Radiators are an effective safety feature of any facility; reducing the risk of burns to anybody who comes into contact with the surface of the radiator.

Contour is often asked how much LST Radiators cost by people concerned about the financial implications of installing them into a building.

Let’s find out more…

Contour LST Radiators are built with a safety-first mentality. They are designed to be more robust, efficient, and long-lasting than others on the market. We also work on a customer-first basis.

For this reason, we don’t offer a one-price-fits-all mindset when it comes to our LST Radiators. We work on a bespoke, customer-by-customer basis.

Bespoke Radiators are Better

Working on a bespoke basis means that every customer gets the best price possible when purchasing LST Radiators. 

We consider each setting on a unique basis, taking into account the amount of LST radiators requested, the installation required, and the additional features specified by the customer such as:

  • Material- Would you like 1.5mm steel, magnelis or aluminium?
  • Valve type: internal or external?
  • Do you require a RotaRad Kit?
  • Will they be wall-mounted or floor-mounted?
  • What sizes do you need?
  • Will you require door chains?

Working in close consultation with you, Contour will provide you with a bespoke quote that is tailored to your needs, giving you the best value in your heating solutions.


Cost Effective LST Radiators

The initial cost of LST Radiators can be a concern for people who are purchasing them for the first time. However, it’s important to remember that, once installed, LST Radiators are more cost-effective than traditional LST radiators and will, therefore, save you money over time.

Traditional LST radiators are often not designed to give access for cleaning and maintenance and can require more than one person to remove the cover; Contour LST radiators are.

With this design, the radiators can be cleaned faster, by just one person instead of two. The average time to clean a traditional LST Radiator is roughly 30 minutes, including disassembling, cleaning and reassembling the entire structure. A Contour LST Radiator takes just 10 minutes.

NHS guidelines state that radiators in hospitals and healthcare environments are cleaned at least once a week, reducing the amount of time and personnel required to maintain a safe heating solution for the space.

This is also relevant in educational spaces, where budgets are becoming increasingly tighter. Cost-effective cleaning solutions, as a result of the options available in our LST Radiators, will improve the overall spending for a school throughout the year.



There are several factors to consider when choosing LST Radiators and considering their cost. There are a series of additional features that you may choose to include depending on the requirements that the space has.

Contour Heating provide LST radiators that are designed to reduce the number of cleaning operatives required to maintain the cleanliness of the radiators, as well as reduce the overall time it takes to clean the radiators. This makes them more cost-effective over time than a more traditional LST radiator design.
