What Is A Type 21 Double Panel Plus Convector?

Offering powerful heat output and great efficiency in a convenient size, double panel plus convector radiators (also known as a type 21) are a great heating option for any room in the home.

Providing more warmth than the Type 11 designs of the same size, Type 21 convectors feature an additional steel panel, ensuring that there is even more surface area to distribute heat throughout a space.

Why Buy A Type 21 Convector Radiator?

For many years, convector radiators have been the most popular style of heating for UK homes, and with the benefits they bring, it’s little wonder.

Convector radiators quickly and efficiently heat a room, because they have fins that increase the surface area of your radiator and help to circulate the warm air around the room.

With double panel designs available they are able to produce high amounts of heat, and their simple design means they complement rooms of any style and decor.

A double panel plus convector radiator is the perfect home heating choice for many people because it combines impressive performance and efficiency with convenience.

Neither a single nor a double panel radiator, a double panel plus is somewhere in between. These efficient radiators have two panels and one row of convector fins, which means you still get an impressive heat output, but from a radiator which doesn’t take up as much floor space as a Type 22 double panel, double convector.

Like other convector radiators, a double panel plus has the usual convector design of grooved front panelling and a white finish which complements any interior. These versatile radiators can be installed in literally any room and look great.

DID YOU KNOW? – The Type number (21) is given because this type of convector radiator has 2 panels and 1 convector, hence the name type ’21’.
