About double panel convector radiators

Type 22 Double Panel Convectors – What Do You Need To Know?

Convector radiators are one of the most popular ways to heat our homes and offices as they offer great value for money and long-lasting durability.

They are also great for heating a room quickly and effectively, as they have the added benefit of convecting fins to disperse warm air around the room – take a look down the back of any of your rads and you’ll probably see them.

Why Buy A Type 22 Convector Radiator?


A double panel convector radiator (also known as a Type 22) is an even more efficient and effective way of heating a room because it features two panels and two sets of convector fins, so the surface area of the radiator is vastly increased. This means there is a larger area for cold air to make contact with and acquire heat.

Cold air mixes with the warm air from the radiator before being dispersed throughout a room – this is why you’ll normally find radiators underneath windows.

What Are The Benefits Of A Type 22 Convector Radiator?


The beauty of the double panel convector design is that the added power and efficiency that you get from the design doesn’t take up any extra room. The convector fins and second panel are simply incorporated into the design. So, you get a significantly higher heat output from a radiator with the same dimensions as a single panel or double panel plus.

In fact, a Type 22 panel radiator looks as stylish and at home in a modern house as it does in a traditional property.

For all these reasons, double panel convector radiators are a hugely popular choice among UK households.

DID YOU KNOW? – The numbers in ‘Type 22’ convector titles are significant, as the first 2 is the number of panels the radiator has and the second 2 is the number of convectors attached.
