Safe Heating in Hotels and Public Buildings
All buildings open to the public, whether they are privately run or run by public bodies, must ensure people are not exposed to unnecessary risk. This includes heating and if there are no safe radiators installed, you risk having to pay out compensation for any injuries that could be caused. Installing these radiators ensures that vulnerable people are not at risk from serious burns.
Safe Heating in Hospitals and Care Homes
LST radiators are an absolute must in both hospitals and care homes. There are many sick and vulnerable people residing in both of these establishments and it is far too easy for them to fall into a burning hot radiator and contract serious burns. Installing LST radiators in hospitals will stop already vulnerable people from hurting themselves more. Care homes are also required to install LST radiators now to protect the older residents living there. This can help to prevent serious injuries as an elderly person can very easily fall into a radiator and not be able to stand up and move away from it. Serious burns can then occur within a matter of just seconds.
Safe Heating in Your Home
LST radiators are commonly thought to only be used in environments such as educational establishments, hospitals and care homes, however, they can also be fitted in homes too. These types of radiators are great in homes with elderly people, young children and also pets too!
