Standard Steel Panel Radiator

Standard steel panel radiators are the most popular form of hydronic heating panel and all H2O Heating’s quotations are based on the standard steel panel; they blend seamlessly into most home interiors offering exceptional heat performance with a wide range of heights, widths and convector options there is a panel to suit every room’s requirement. H2O Heating only uses radiator panels manufactured by leading European companies offering a 25 year manufacturer’s guarantee; now that’s peace of mind!

Convected heat

With efficiency being of the utmost importance all standard steel radiator panels offered by H2O Heating are convector panels, this means that they provide both radiated heat, emitted directly from the panel, and convected heat.

Convected heat is circulated naturally by the cooler air being drawn up through the radiator and passed over the fins, heated, and then emitted from the top into the room; this process increases the performance and efficiency of the panel.

Radiator panels are an ideal method of heating rooms with high ceilings as both the radiated and convected heat warm the entire room not just the upper portions.

A Stylish Alternative

Whilst the traditional range of steel panel radiators provide a classic timeless design if your needs or interior style call from something a little more unique, a radiator that allows for style and creativity as well as outstanding performance then consider Aluminium Radiators for energy efficiency; for a seamless integration the flat panel radiators; if you are undertaking a sympathetic renovation consider the tubular steel or cast iron radiator and if safety is of paramount importance look to the LST (Low Surface Temperature) radiator range; finally for those looking to create a style statement consider the Designer Range.

Aluminium Radiators

Standard hydronic heating radiator panels are manufactured from steel but in Europe, following years of research and development, there has been a move towards Aluminium radiators. Extremely popular in Europe the benefits of Aluminium radiators have been long overlooked in the Australian hydronic heating market. Aluminium radiators are highly energy efficient and environmentally friendly, the very nature of Aluminium thermal properties means the radiators offer a fast response time and higher outputs (compared to the same size steel radiator panels); it is non corrosive and there is the ability to recycle at the end of their lives; maximum performance for the minimum cost.

Style wise, with their clean minimal lines, Aluminium radiators are very much design focused combining efficiency with modern style. The new range of Aluminium radiators offered by H2O Heating are designed and manufactured in Italy meaning not only are they highly efficient but they are stunningly stylish too; available horizontal or vertical in white as standard and now also in a choice of 4 special powder coated finishes; textured light grey; textured black gold and polished silver.

Flat Panel Radiators

The majority of hydronic heating systems utilise steel panel radiators, whilst the steel panel radiator with its ribbed fascia and integrated side and top grille is viewed as a timeless design a less obtrusive alternative is often sought and this is where the Flat panel radiator is the perfect solution. Providing an aesthetically attractive profile with its sleek silk smooth front surface and integrated top grille and sides the Flat Panel radiator integrates seamlessly into all interior environments providing an affordable element of design.

In addition to the perfectly smooth flat fascia, flat panels are also available with a fine line detailing in both horizontal and vertical to give a look of interest without the indented rib effect of the traditional steel panel.

Flat panels offer all the same features and benefits as the traditional steel panel radiator being available in an extensive range of sizes including vertical options making it the perfect solution when wall space is at a premium as well as a stylish alternative.

Colour Change

Manufactured with a gloss white powdered coat finish the hydronic heating panel has traditionally been designed and finished with the aim of creating an unobtrusive and simple finish to harmonise with any room interior they are installed. Traditionally the trend has been to “hide” the hydronic panel, often positioned out of site as if some ugly aspect.

However, the option to now powder coat hydronic panels in a colour unique to the client has resulted in the panel becoming a feature of the room, positioning where it can be seen and admired. A recent project saw bathroom towel rails powdered coated gloss black to complement the black fixtures and installed against a white backdrop resulting in the towel rail being a feature rather than blending into its surroundings. This trend of powder coating towel rails has extended into other rooms of the house where no longer “hidden” away the hydronic panel is a main attribute of the room.
