Stelrad Adds Compact 900mm High Radiators to Other Series

As a result of the popularity of these new 900mm high radiators Stelrad has announced that it has added the models to the Vita, Softline and Henrad ranges in the Stelrad Group portfolio as well from Q1 2024.

Head of Marketing Chris Harvey said: “There is a clear need for larger size radiators to cope with the lower circulating system temperatures generated by renewable heating systems and we are making sure our installer and specifier customers have access to the full range of options they will need in the months ahead. Having launched the 900mm high Compact models earlier in the year the popularity of them has been such that it made clear sense to add them to the ranges that are stocked by a wider range of merchants in particular.”

“The arrival of the new upgrade to Building Regulations back on 15th June in England and from November this year in Wales brings with it a realisation that the key figure to bear in mind is 55°C – the maximum flow temperature for all new wet heating systems from this date. The regulations also say that heating appliances and radiators should not be oversized. TRVs need to be fitted to every radiator except where there is a room thermostat fitted. The differential between the flow and return should be 10°C – giving a 45°C return, and a mean water temperature of 50°C. This will have an impact on radiators but simply means that sizing of radiators is more important than ever and the 900mm high range offer a useful alternative size radiator for installers looking to meet the new requirements. All the advice you could need is available through relevant websites to point installers and specifiers in the right direction with regard to using the right radiators in the right applications.

“The transition from fossil fuelled, boiler driven systems to heat pump driven renewable systems is well underway and we’re making sure that installers and specifiers realise fully that radiators are ‘fit for the future’ and more than capable of providing the necessary heat around the home – radiators need to be sized properly as always to provide sufficient heating capacity and insulation needs to be evaluated to ensure its adequate to ensure the heat in the home does not escape to atmosphere.”

Head for for all the advice you need to decide on the right radiators for your installations and heating system designs.
