K3 radiators have three panels and three convector fins which provide increased heat emitting surfaces from a smaller radiator ‘footprint’. The heat output requirement determines the size of a radiator, so by doubling up or tripling the number of panels, it’s possible to achieve higher heat levels from smaller length radiators.
The K3 is also ideal for use with renewable heating systems. The most common renewable heating methods are air source or ground source heat pump installations and solar thermal systems – all of which can produce effective and energy efficient room heating in conjunction with the K3 radiator option.
Strictly controlled independent laboratory testing ensures that all Stelrad radiators are guaranteed to perform to a maximum working pressure of 116 psi (8 bar), and conform to BS EN 442, the European Standard for radiators.
