New York Radiator Burn LawyersA radiator burn may occur when the unit is excessively hot due to a malfunction or failure to properly maintain the heating system.
The surfaces of the components of these systems are capable of reaching temperatures as high as 82-110°C (180-230°F). If a metallic surface temperature exceeds 70°C, it may present a burn hazard regardless of the contact duration.It is common knowledge that hot surfaces can cause burn injuries. The danger is presented by a combination of the heat hazard and the length of exposure.
For extremely high-temperature metallic surfaces greater than 70°C (158°F), a serious burn injury occurs almost instantaneously upon contact. For contact periods up to one second in duration, the recommended maximum surface temperature for un-coated metals is 65-70°C and 75-85°C for coated metal surfaces.
Many residential apartments are heated by steam heating systems. These systems have vertical steam pipes and radiators that are exposed within the unit. Thus, they present a danger of causing a contact burn injury if they are not properly regulated and maintained.
The surfaces of the components of these systems are capable of reaching temperatures as high as 82-110°C (180-230°F). If a metallic surface temperature exceeds 70°C, it may present a burn hazard regardless of the contact duration. The exposed surface temperature of a metallic radiator that exceeds 70°C must be reduced, covered or insulated.
