additional long lasting, anti-bacterial paint coating, which provides an additional valu- able benefit for the environments in which they are installed.


Beneficial


Installing LST radiators has certainly proved beneficial to The Ridings Care Home in Swindon, which has 32 self- contained flats catering for a mix of active elderly individuals and couples, many with 24-hour care needs.


It had been operating an ageing electric underfloor heating system, with electric immersion heaters providing hot water. It was expensive to run and needed replacing with a modern, reliable energy-efficient alternative.


A traditional wet heating system was selected, with modern gas-fired condensing boilers providing the heating source, with two additional gas boilers operating in conjunction with solar thermal and solar PV panels to preheat the cylinder and provide hot water.


But with differing levels of disability and care requirements to cater for it was impor- tant to select radiators that prevented the possibility of heat-related injury.


Ultimately, it was the decision to specify quality, high-specification LSTs that made the installation of a desirable, cost–effective wet system viable


More than 80 LST radiators were installed with additional integral remote sensing thermostatic valves to allow adjust- ment of room air temperature, making them highly energy efficient. They also featured an arthritic adaptor designed to make it easier for older people, who may have prob- lems with their grip, to adjust heat levels in their rooms. Ultimately, it was the decision to specify


quality, high-specification LSTs that made the installation of a desirable, cost–effective wet system viable.
