Third-generation radiators are steel radiators designed to heat various spaces. Third-generation radiators are more efficient than the former types due to the unique design and fewer defects and shortcomings. One of the most important features of these radiators is their agreement with different types of combi boilers. These radiators possess high thermal efficiency, as they have the most fins that are directly in contact with hot water in circulation. The special design has given these radiators an eye-catching appeal with ease of cleansing. The low water tank volume and unique heat capacity compared to other designs, i.e., a 5.2 liters tank embedded in a 100 cm radiator with a heat capacity of 2100 kcal, invigorates technicians at first glance. Lower functioning of the heating system pump and elevated depreciation life of the heating system (combi boiler), less energy consumption than other first and second-generation counterparts, and consequently optimized fuel consumption are advantages of these radiators.
Panel radiators are made of steel but exhibit better energy effectiveness than aluminum radiators because they are provided with an embedded convector. Combi boilers comprise copper pipes that react with aluminum and cause corrosion, sedimentation, and gas emission. It is, therefore, vital to ventilate aluminum radiators once a week, while it is enough to do the same for panel radiators once or twice a year. Contrary to the aluminum radiators with a very hot shelf, panel radiators come with less risk to children.
Materials used in panel radiators
Panel radiators are manufactured using steel sheets of 1.2 mm in thickness. Such sheets are painted and supplied with special colors after passing through special molds.
Panel radiators are delivered in various types and sizes. The popular types are available in 55 cm axes and lengths of 40, 50, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, 180, 200 cm.
