The Spectrum Pro radiant panel is a robust panel offering the ideal solution for heating the commercial office, health and education sectors. It is suitable for T-bar, free hanging and plaster board applications, the Spectrum Pro is available in widths of 400mm to 1200mm and lengths of up to 30 metres.
Spectrum Pro – Suitable for T-bar, free hanging and plaster board applications, the Spectrum Pro is available in widths of 400mm to 1200mm and lengths of up to 30 metres. Spectrum Pro radiant panel is a robust panel offering the ideal solution for heating the commercial office, health and education sectors. Manufactured from 2mm aluminum extrusion, achieving quick response times and high thermal transfer.
The Spectrum Pro panel has class leading performance under EN14037 test criteria. There are 3 types of Spectrum Pro panel available:
– Single units – for T-Bar or free-hanging applications
– Strips – combinations of panels in series for both T-Bar and free-hanging applications
– Framed Units – for plasterboard solutions
Single Panels Single panels of up to 3.6m in length are available in seven widths in 200mm increments 400/600/800/1000 and 1200mm. These come in nominal sizes with profiled sides to fit within a T-Bar ceiling. Each Strip can be made up of units up to 3m long, connected together to achieve a strip with a maximum of 30m total length.
– Lengths come made to measure +/- 2mm.
– Hidden headers can be added to direct flow when required.
– Strips are available in both T-Bar and free hanging applications.
RHCS products are guaranteed for a period of 10 years from date of purchase in respect of defective materials and workmanship. The system should be designed in accordance with British Standard Code of Practice for Water Based Heating Systems in Buildings. On completion of the installation, the system should be properly flushed and filled in accordance with the British Code of Practice for the Treatment of Water in Domestic Hot Water Central Heating Systems, Part L of Building Regulations and Good Practice Guidance for Scotland. Failure to adhere to these standards may invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
Spectrum Radiant Panels save energy and money by achieving a higher perceived temperature than the actual room temperature and offer an unobtrusive design. Modern heating and cooling is all about people and providing a comfortable environment for occupants. However, with issues such energy efficiency becoming increasingly important in delivering a heating and cooling system which offers an effective building performance for occupants and also saves energy and money, is paramount in the choice of an optimum heating/cooling solution.
Radiant heat is a form of electromagnetic radiation, between ultra violet and infra-red on the electromagnetic spectrum. These electromagnetic waves penetrate the air with no loss of energy and this energy is only converted to instant heat when it comes into contact with any object of a lower temperature, warming anyone or anything in close proximity. If the radiant panels are heated by hot water this subsequently gives off energy to the room. This energy is converted into heat only when it comes into contact with the human body or other objects. This is identical to the way in which the direct sunlight on a cold winter’s day produces warmth and makes us feel comfortable. As a result radiant ceiling panels provide a pleasant and comfortable warmth at ground level, even when installed at a height of 30 metres. There are many radiant panels available on the market but the concept is the same. Water is distributed through an aluminum panel via waterways attached to the rear.
