What Colours Do LST Radiators Come In?

What Colours Do LST Radiators Come In? | Contour Heating | Shifnal, West Midlands

Here at Contour, we understand that every customer is different and not everyone wants the same standard white LST radiator in their school, hospital, care home or nursery.

Sometimes a colourful heating solution is more appropriate.

We have been blogging about the colours that we can provide LST radiators in and why a range of options is beneficial to our customers.

The Benefits Of Colour

 Leighton Hospital Case Study | Contour Heating | Shifnal West Midlands

 

In certain spaces, particularly where young and vulnerable people are spending time such as in a hospital, the design of a room should accommodate a comforting atmosphere as well as a practical one.

A hospital stay is already a distressing experience for many people, and sleeping in unfamiliar spaces can be difficult, particularly if it doesn’t feel welcoming or homely. 

Contour can install coloured LST radiators that blend with the theme of a room. For example, we recently completed work on installing green LST radiators into a children’s ward with a jungle theme.

Colour also has a safety benefit that they bring when used on LST Radiators.

In certain spaces, particularly dementia wards, there is an issue with service users becoming confused about where bathroom facilities are in a space.

Unable to make a differentiation between white LST radiators and other white goods, such as toilets, there have been cases where radiator covers have been used as urinals or toilets.

The installation of coloured LST radiators that blend into the paint colours used on the walls already, can reduce the risk of this happening.

This gave patients back their dignity by eliminating the risk of unsanitary incidents in public wards and communal areas in the care space.

 

RAL Chart

RAL Chart For Radiator Covers | Contour Heating | Shifnal, West Midlands

 

Working from a RAL chart, Contour are able to provide almost any colour LST radiator, meaning that we can match whatever colour scheme you need your LSTs to match.

All our customers need to do is to provide us with a four-digit RAL code and we can work with it.

Through close consultation with you, we can make recommendations using our expertise to ensure that the right colours are coordinated with your needs.

We understand the psychology of certain spaces. As part of our consultancy, while working alongside you, we can understand your needs and make appropriate colour recommendations around that.

For example, we wouldn’t recommend a blue LST radiator for a facility treating those with eating disorders because of its suppressing effect on appetite.

 

Conclusion

Colour can make a space feel more welcoming and relax situations that might be unfamiliar or distressing, such as a hospital stay.

Working from a RAL code and a RAL chart, Contour can provide LST radiators in a range of colours to suit any environment.
