Low Surface Temperature Radiators (LST) are used in situations where a low surface temperature is required for safety purposes. NHS Estates Health Guidance Notes advise that radiators do not exceed 43°C, as anything higher may cause serious harm to whoever is in contact with the radiator. 

Our LST radiators are a perfect choice for your classrooms for a number of reasons. Notably, mainstream class sizes often exceed 30 children, meaning that there are a lot of children occupying a small space. We can therefore assume that children are likely to come in contact with a radiator on a daily basis.
