“The designer alternative to low temperature radiators”

ThermaSkirt has the durability of a commercial system but maintains the appearance of a residential product

ThermaSkirt can help meet client briefs and optimise the useable and thus valuable floor space by removing the radiators

With each wall mounted emitter removed, an average of 0.7m2 of valuable, additional usable floor and 1.0m2 of wall space is created -adding value & costing your clients nothing in extra build costs.

The use of larger and lower glass areas provides natural daylight and an aspect on the world that can help improve the occupants’ well-being and mental health; vital at times of lockdown or working from home. More glass means less walls and often meant underfloor heating to provide the heating. Not anymore.

Available in a range of styles and colours

ThermaSkirt is less than 20mm in profile and can even be built into the wall using our ‘Shadowline’ system to make it practically invisible. Being an ‘above ground’ solution, you are free to specify what ever floor coverings you prefer as the heating performance is entirely unaffected by the surface finish.


Developed in co-operation with the NHS, our LST versions for use in assisted living or challenging behaviour suites will improve hygiene and service user safety whilst reducing running and maintenance costs.

ThermaSkirt EasyClean has no slots or grills for harmful bacteria to hide.

Unlike Under floor heating, ThermaSkirt is fast and responsive to changes in heat demand, ensuring maximum comfort and minimal running cost. In addition it will not cause the “tired leg” syndrome experienced by hard working healthcase staff standing on heated floors all day

Available in a kitchen plinth version and a threshold version for across patio and balcony door openings, not a single mm2 of floor or wall space need be wasted.

Energy Efficient

Thermaskirt is typically 13% more efficient than radiators on conventional heating systems, and up to 25% on renewables

Case Studies

The Bridges by Adlington Homes

Heating in apartments is often challenging in that space is a premium commodity and the needs and wants of the client can vary enormously. This can be especially true in retirement apartments – properties specifically aimed at the over 55’s.
Why? Well many will have downsized from larger family homes but still want to keep important items of furniture and so useable floor space becomes very often a deciding factor. This is why traditional radiators are losing their appeal to developers like Gladman as they try to offer more living room in the same constructed envelope.

Complex Care & Autism and Supported Living Units

Adults and young persons with Complex care and autism present a particular challenge, and need to be accomodated in comfortable, quiet and secure residential environments if they are to be properly looked after. Specialised Supported Housing (SSH) are dedicated to providing such quality acoomodation at an affordable cost to the local authority and service providers such as Lifeways and Inclusion Housing.

Farmhouse - Ground source heat pump

If your family home is located in beautiful Cheshire Countryside and yet only a few hundred metres away from the family business, it’s difficult to find a better example of a Work / Life balance. Understandably then, the Bateson family of Bateson Trailers fame, decided that their Grandmothers’ home would be an ideal family home for Simon and his wife and two children. ‘Tired’ would have been an estate agents’ description of the house, as it had fallen into some disrepair and was reliant on oil heating.
