THE MATTE COLOURS


THE RADIANT PANEL

100% MADE IN ITALY, 1OO% ECO-FRIENDLY Livingstone® is an eco-friendly product that uses stone parts derived from marble processing that are joined together using a low-temperature process that permits less energy use in the processes and reduced emission of CO2 in the environment.

THE SUN IN YOUR HOME The Livingstone® panels have been designed and created to also be used with renewable energy sources. The heat and power from the sun, transformed into electric energy, are collected and accumulated in the radiant panels. Livingstone® is the radiator that accumulates heat.

HIGH EFFICIENCY, LOW CONSUMPTION The panels function by means of radiation technology: the temperature is uniform across the entire radiator surface. The heat is directly transferred to the room and the people over the entire surface, permitting high efficiency and reducing consumption and the amount of time required to reach a comfortable condition.

4


EASY INSTALLATION, INTELLIGENT CONTROL Livingstone® is immediately operative and ready to heat the environment. It is installed by fixing the product on the wall and connecting the electrical power supply. All the panels have a room thermostat with a timer that is used to set the room comfort temperature and turn on the device according to a schedule. Once the desired temperature is reached, the control reduces the power, guaranteeing that the comfort condition will be maintained, while reducing consumption.

CLEAN AIR, FEWER ALLERGIES Unlike traditional radiators, Livingstone® mainly transfers heat by radiation, avoiding the movement of air and dust. Allergies and sensitisations can be avoided with cleaner air, with a product that is easier to clean.

SILENT HEAT IN EVERY ENVIRONMENT Silent, non-invasive heat is diffused in the room where the radiant panel is installed. Livingstone® is suited for all areas of your home: kitchen, living room, bedrooms and all rooms with higher amounts of humidity, such as the bathroom.

5


FULLY RECYCLABLE

PATENTED TECHNOLOGY The Livingstone® marble powder radiant panels are the result of research and innovative, patented technology. In this process, the marble powder, which is a waste product from the marble cutting process, is reutilised and agglomerated with a water base and an acrylic bond.

LOW-ENERGY CONSUMING PROCESS The product is created using a process that is cold during all phases, from agglomeration of the powder to drying. Livingstone® is a product where the basic components, the marble parts, are joined together using a low-temperature process that permits less energy use in the processes and reduced emission of CO2 in the environment.

FULLY RECYCLABLE At the end of their useful life, products with the Livingstone® technology and process can be recycled and crushed by means of mechanical compression. The crushed material in a powder form can also be reused in other areas and in other applications. Livingstone® is a new method of using material, which can be represented circularly. The material flows through the various applications, various companies and products and is then used again in other products. During these circular passages, the quantity of energy used is minimal as the process takes place at low temperatures.

6


ARTISAN QUALITY Product quality is guaranteed by our artisan passion and experience. The drawings and models are created manually with great care and attention.

ZERO EMISSIONS Livingstone速 is made with natural materials such as marble and agglomerated with water. The paints used to protect the product are water based. The product, during its entire use, has zero emissions.

7


100% MADE IN ITALY, 1OO% ECO-FRIENDLY QUALITY MADE IN ITALY Livingstone速 is a zero kilometre product: all its materials and components are made within a network of Italian companies who work together in order to create a high-quality product. Product value is the result of skilled, artisan handwork and is competitive as the materials are low-cost and the process uses low amounts of energy

eco SOSTENIBILE

ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCT The product, during its entire use, has zero emissions. The product is created using a process at low temperatures: the marble dust is agglomerated using a cold process, poured manually into the moulds and the product is left to cure for 4/5 days so all the humidity can separate from the agglomerate. At the end of its useful life, the product can be recycled and crushed. This operation separates the marble powder from the other components, making it possible to recycle all the material.

NATURAL RAW MATERIALS Livingstone速 is made with natural materials such as marble and agglomerated with water. The paints used to protect the product are water based.

THE SUN IN YOUR HOME THE PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELS Livingstone® is a product designed for being used with renewable energy sources. In the electric version, the product can use clean, free energy from a photovoltaic system. All products in the Livingstone® line include a room thermostat that can be programmed weekly, for the 24 hours in a day. This intelligent thermostat not only adjusts the temperature for comfort, it is able to use energy from the photovoltaic system when it is available. The thermostat has a cable input to receive information that the system is producing sufficient energy.

THE RADIANT PANEL Livingstone® is a product whose physical operating principle for heat transfer is by radiation. The heat is transmitted directly to the people, distributing the temperature uniformly across the room. The heat enters the rooms in the same way that the sun transfers its energy to us. Livingstone® brings the sun into your home.

9


HIGH EFFICIENCY, LOW CONSUMPTION THE RADIATOR THAT ACCUMULATES THE HEAT Livingstone 速 accumulates the introduced heat and release it "softly" to the environment, thanks to the inertia of the stone. The system can accumulate energy from a renewable source, such as a photovoltaic system, during the day and release it "softly" until the evening

PATENTED TECHNOLOGY Livingstone 速 is a technology patented by Underleaf. The product and the entire process are the result of extensive experimentation in research and development laboratories where technology, product quality and respect for the environment have been combined with the objective of energy savings.

CONTROLLED HEAT The structure of the product was designed using the most evolved technology available on the market to best distribute the heat. The temperature sensors inside the product agglomerate control that the heat is correctly distributed and guarantee the best conditions for producing the radiation.

10


EASY INSTALLATION, INTELLIGENT CONTROL AS EASY TO INSTALL AS INSERTING A PLUG Livingstone® is a product that can be installed in a few minutes. In the electrical version, the product is fixed to the wall with two brackets, and the energy is received from the electrical power supply by connecting the plug with a socket in the electrical system. In the hydraulic version, the product is connected to the system with two manifolds.

INTELLIGENT THERMOSTAT All Livingstone® products, including the basic version, include a control thermostat. The temperature is always correct, guaranteeing a suitable degree of comfort without wasting energy once the desired temperature has been reached. When the temperature in the room reaches the desired value, the thermostat detects this condition and reduces the energy used to what is necessary to maintain the heat loss of the room towards the inside.

Thermostat functions: 1: Digital temperature setting and programming display 2: Heating status signalling LED 3: Mode setting button (comfort, night-time, programming, anti-freeze) 4: Stand-By button 5: Temperature setting knob

CLEAN AIR, FEWER ALLERGIES dust mites

bacteria mould

AN ALLY AGAINST ALLERGIES Traditional radiators transfer heat to the environment by circulating the air from lower areas to upper areas of the room. This phenomenon is known as convection and the resulting movement of dust, which can transport mould, bacteria or dustmites, promotes the onset of allergies in sensitive individuals. Livingstone速 is your ally against allergies, because it does not move the dust as the heat is transferred by radiation.

Fig. 1: Traditional radiator

RADIATED HEAT The Livingstone速 radiators use radiated heat. The temperature is uniform across the entire radiator surface and is transferred directly to the room via radiated heat. The physical radiation process makes it possible to softly and directly transfer the heat in every direction of the room. A uniform temperature in the room and a sensation of well-being: this is Livingstone速's secret.

SILENT HEAT IN EVERY ENVIRONMENT SWEET DREAMS Sleep well, Livingstone® will silently regulate the quantity of heat needed in the room. With the “night mode” it is possible to reduce consumption during the night-time hours in rooms that are not used and in the bedrooms.

PERFECT FOR EVERY ENVIRONMENT Livingstone® can be used in any environment thanks to its characteristics of robustness, resistance to humidity with IPX4 protection, and is free of all emissions. In the kitchen, in the dining room, in the bedroom, in the bathroom, in a basement room and even in the cellar...

A DISCRETE PRESENCE Livingstone® is thin and its colours can be customised. It can be printed with a customised image, a theme, a texture on the surface to match it with the furnishings. A simple design where the control is hidden on the side of the radiator so its form will not be compromised. Livingstone® can be used as a decorative element, if placed in a visible position, or can be hidden in the environment due to its discrete presence.

SELECTING THE RIGHT PANEL CALCULATING THE THERMAL REQUIREMENT FOR THE ROOM The first step for determining the correct power of the radiant panel for a room is to determine its energy requirement. If the energy class of the home is known (see figure below) the requirement can be initially approximated by the thermal requirement per square metre multiplied by the room surface:

W

L x P x W/m2 = necessary Watts D

H= room height POWER REQUIRED FOR NON-CERTIFIED HOMES In the case of non-certified homes, the power of the panel necessary for the home can be estimated based on the degree of insulation: Recently constructed homes: Homes with average insulation: Homes without isolation, in very cold areas:

30-60 W/m2 60-100 W/m2 100-150 W/m2

Livingstone® is able to offer a simple and precise control system that can autonomously manage the delivered power based on the momentary thermal load of the room, in order to achieve maximum comfort with reduced energy costs.
