ThermaSkirt® replaces the LST radiators and skirting board trim in one. It has proven to be at least 13% more energy efficient than radiators and deliver comfort levels indistinguishable from Under Floor heating.
As ThermaSkirt® is a completely sealed radiant unit it does not have any grilles, gaps or exposed pipe work. This means that it does not collect dust and grime that harbour infectious spores and bacteria and does not present a tripping hazard or risk of impact injury in a fall – a common occurrence in a vibrant school environment.
Radiant heat does not create convection currents that would otherwise circulate dust and other particles that can aggravate respiratory afflictions and spread infection in schools.
ThermaSkirt® can heat a classroom in minutes from cold and more importantly cool down quickly when required, an essential feature if a comfortable classroom is to be maintained with a fluctuating class size and uses.
ThermaSkirt® has recently been installed in several schools, both refurbishment & new-build. ThermaSkirt® can be connected onto conventional existing pipework, whether overhead or in the wall or floor. Replacing old and inefficient radiators with ThermaSkirt® reduces running costs and increases comfort levels for students.
