Recently developed in co-operation with the NHS Microbiology department to help combat infection in hospitals, the TherMiser system from DiscreteHeat Co Ltd, is now available to the general public. The touch screen programmable control monitors room temperature and the surface temperature of the ThermaSkirt heating system. Replacing the skirting board and radiators in one, ThermaSkirt is easy to clean and resistant to chemicals and bleaches used to kill virulent bugs such as C.Diff & MRSA. The Thermiser thermostat cuts off the flow of hot water when the room reaches temperature and/or if the skirting surface rises above the factory setting of 42°C. The unit may be used as a stand alone room control, without the skirting board sensor feature if required.
