Choice of heating sources
Through continuous research and development, RadTech
2000 Limited is proud to present our newest breakthrough
into the hydronic heating market. Slimline Radiant. This revolutionary
new concept, with the use of copper inlaid in an aluminium panel, will
provide you with the comfort and technology of the future, in a heating
system of today.
The Slimline Radiant hot water baseboard system
is 130mm high x 25mm deep and provides an attractive and comfortable heating
system that is not affected by furniture placement. Slimline Radiant is
engineered for ease of installation. It is easy to install with conventional
tools and uses readily available parts. Its sleek styling and comfort makes
it in high demand.
Radiant vs. Convective Heat
Conventional hot water heating systems deliver most
of their heat to a room through convection. Hot water flowing through the
baseboard or wall radiators transfers heat to the surrounding air. The
heated air rises up to the ceiling then cycles around in a convective loop.
Slimline Radiant, on the other hand, relies primarily
on a radiant heat delivery. Approximately 85% of the heat is delivered
through radiation, with only 15% by convection. The low-temperature
radiators warm people and objects directly, rather than just simply heating
The “Heat Enclosure” Principle
Slimline Radiant panels are designed around the “Heat
Enclosure” principle which describes the effect and benefit achieved when
using a low level radiant perimeter system that surrounds the occupants
of a room. Heat is applied in this way to provide an even temperature
condition to give greater levels of comfort whilst conserving energy.
Effect and Benefit Explained
By comparing the diagrams below it can be realised
that any type of local heat source eg/ radiator or fan-assisted heater,
has to produce a large volume of surplus heat by convection or forced air
effect to reach all areas and corners of a room. This can result
in uneven temperature distribution - typically excess heat near the heat
source and close to the ceiling, with insufficient heat where you want
By use of the “Heat Enclosure” the expensive
and wasted heat “blanket” that normally accumulates at ceiling level is
eliminated and the “dried-out stuffiness” associated with conventional
radiators and forced air systems is greatly reduced affording an altogether
higher comfort level with less energy use, whilst producing a cleaner and
healthier living environment.
Even Heat Distribution
Because convection plays such a minor role with Slimline
Radiant, there is very little temperature stratification in the room.
The difference in temperature between floor and ceiling is usually no more
than 1 deg C, compared to the typical 5 - 8 deg C typical with most heating
The heating modules allow heat to be released
in a uniform and controlled manner around the perimeter of the room, creating
the desired temperature condition throughout the room from floor to ceiling
and corner to corner.
You will be comfortable walking around barefoot,
even in the middle of winter. Your baby can crawl around on the floor
without catching a cold. And you won’t need a fan to blow hot air
down from the ceiling.
Highest Quality Materials
Heavy gauge aluminium panel & filler panel
Copper inlaid core
Powder coated for added durability or pre-undercoated
for your custom finish
Quick-connect fittings (just insert tube and connection
Available in a range of lengths sized to fit virtually
Fittings to fit inside corners, outside corners,
and termination caps

Because Slimline Radiant delivers steady radiant
heat withour floor-to-ceiling stratification, you keep warm and comfortable
at a lower temperature. You will realize impressive energy savings,
while keeping more comfortbale.
Manual and automatic set-back features on the
thermostats will considerably reduce energy consumption at night and during
periods when you are away.
You will also realize energy savings with Slimline
Radiant by virtue of the room-to-room zoning. With most installations,
each room is controlled by a separate thermostat. Rooms you don’t
use as frequently can be kept cooler.
Ideal for Both New and Existing Buildings
Slimline Radiant’s easy installation and superb performance
make it ideal for use in older buildings as well as new. In fact,
for some hard-to-heat houses, Slimline Radiant may be the only way to achieve
acceptable levels of comfort.
Adaptable to any Boiler
Slimline Radiant will operate with any boiler or
hot water source. It can be installed as either a single-loop or
Non-movement of dust throughout the house, provides
better environment for allergy sufferers.
