The most common size used is a 22 at 600mm high due to its high output without being too bulky. So from the sheet we can see that we would usually choose a 800mm wide unit.
Other considerations are to consider the placement of the panel – how much wall space do you have, is there a good spot under a window.
- Type 11 – Used in smaller rooms where being slim is the aim
- Type 21 – Ideal where a higher heat is required but space is at a premium such as entry ways and halls
- Type 22 – Most commonly used as they aren’t too bulky and give a great output without being too high and wide
- Type 33 – When a lot of heat is required to meet a kW rating or to get a high rating with the smallest width and height such as under a window or desk where depth isn’t an issue
Each panel has a simple on off valve. So a spare room panel could be turned off for example.
It is ideal to have a thermostatic head on radiator panels in bedrooms.
