Active LST Fan Convectors

Belgravia Fan Convectors, including the innovative Active LST Fan Convectors, are a popular heating solution for public spaces due to their efficiency and easy-to-clean surfaces. However, it is important to note that elderly, disabled, or vulnerable individuals may face additional risks when near Fan Convector units.

People with limited mobility or balance can potentially fall and become trapped against the surface of the Fan Convector, leading to injuries. Individuals with sensory issues or nerve damage may not realise the harm being caused to their skin from prolonged contact with the surface.

To ensure greater safety and allow a wider range of spaces to benefit from fan convection heat, we have developed Active LST Fan Convector Control, which can be used with all sizes of our Belgravia Style A range.

A Step Change in Fan Convector Technology

SPC’s Active LST Fan Convector Control is different from other fan-assisted low surface temperature Fan Convectors as it incorporates temperature-limiting technology. The unit contains sensors that monitor the temperature of the casing at the outlet grille and top panel, which are the hottest points.

This temperature data is then used by an independent valve to automatically adjust the flow of hot water. When the valve closes, it reduces the flow rate of hot water, which ultimately decreases or maintains the casing surface temperature.

We have extensively tested the Active LST Control to ensure it meets our high standards. The chart illustrates the surface temperatures measured over time for an SPC Fan Convector equipped with Active LST Control.

NHS Compliant at 43 Degrees

Active LST Control has been designed with temperature limits in line with the official NHS Guidelines. As per these guidelines, the maximum temperature is set to 43 degrees. This ensures that our solution is safe, compliant and industry-leading, providing consultants, installers and contractors with complete confidence in specifying and installing it.

To further enhance safety, we offer Active Control LST Fan Convectors with rounded ends that protect users from impact injury.

Easy to Install

The temperature sensors and automated valve are all pre-installed in our Active Control LST units. This means there is no additional pipework or wiring needed to install them. There are no additional order requirements or time required on site.
