Type 22 double panel radiators
Ensure you don't feel the chill this winter by installing Type 22 radiators in your home to stay toasty and warm. They're perfect for when you need a highly efficient and effective heater that won't take up too much space and doesn't have a super high price point.
What Are Type 22 Radiators?
Type 22 radiators, also known as double-panel double convector radiators, are one of the most common types of radiators in the UK. They consist of two radiator panels with a double row of fins in between and usually come with a top grill and side panels that clip onto the radiator for a cohesive finish. Thanks to their clever design, Type 22 radiators are some of the most affordable options you can buy.
Why Choose Type 22 Radiators?
Due to being made from steel, Type 22 double-panel double convector radiators are some of the most durable and reliable options on the market. Steel has been used for decades to make radiators due to its ability to conduct heat really well and its hardwearing, durable quality - offering you a reliable and affordable heating solution for your home.
Type 22 radiators are available in many different sizes and widths so they can be fitted in almost any spot but are ideal for use beneath windows to utilise dead space. The double rows of fins inside these radiators are the reason they're so effective - helping to conduct more heat and increase the amount of warmth the radiator throws out into the room.
Pair your Type 22 radiator with a modern thermostatic radiator valve for even more efficient heating as well as protection from frost.
Both Type 21 and Type 22 radiators are common types of central heating radiators used in residential and commercial buildings. The main difference between the two is their depth & projection and the number of fins they have.
Type 21 radiators (AKA double-panel single convector radiators) consist of two panels with a single set of fins located in between them. These radiators are thinner and more compact than Type 22 radiators, making them a popular choice for smaller rooms or spaces with limited space.
Type 22 radiators consist of two panels and two sets of fins, which increases their heat output compared to Type 21 radiators. Type 22 radiators are also thicker/deeper than Type 21 radiators, making them more suitable for larger rooms or spaces where higher heat output is required.
Overall, the choice between Type 21 and Type 22 radiators will depend on the specific heating requirements of the room or space in question, as well as the available wall space for installation.
Type 22 radiators have a larger projection into the room than Type 11 radiators, as they have two panels and two sets of fins, while Type 11 radiators only have one panel and one set of fins.
Ultimately, the choice between the two will depend on the specific heating needs and available wall space of the room or space in question.
Type 22 radiators are generally more efficient than conventional radiators, as they have a larger surface area because of the fin design, which allows them to radiate more heat into the surrounding room. This makes them a popular choice for larger rooms or spaces where higher heat output is required.
However, it's important to note that the efficiency of a radiator will depend on a number of factors, including the size of the radiator, the insulation of the building, and the overall efficiency of the central heating system.
While it is possible to install a Type 22 radiator yourself, it's recommended to have it installed by a qualified heating engineer to ensure proper installation and safety. The engineer will also be able to advise you on the most suitable location for the radiator and any necessary changes to the central heating system.
