Are there standard radiator sizes?

Heating technology has moved on a long way in the last ten years and now there’s no limit to the number of types, shapes and sizes radiators can be bought in. Standard radiator sizes are no more thanks to the different types – vertical, horizontal, column and trench all fit into different spaces.

What size panel radiator do I need?

Measure the length, width and height of the room in feet. Multiply all three values to determine the cubic footage of the space. For example, if you have a room that measures 12 feet long by 10 feet wide by 7 feet high, multiplying 12 by 10 by 7 produces 840 cubic feet.

How do you size a radiator?

How To Measure A Radiator:

  1. Measure the height.
  2. Measure the width.
  3. Measure the pipe centres.
  4. Measure the wall to pipe centres.

What is a Type 22 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.

What is the difference between a Type 21 and a Type 22 radiator?

The main difference between Type 21 and Type 22 radiators is the layers of fins, also known as the number of convectors. Type 21 convector radiators feature 2 panels which encase a single layer of fins. A Type 22 radiator is therefore generally wider than a Type 21 radiator.

What is the smallest radiator size?

400mm x 415mm
Milano Aruba – White Horizontal Designer Radiator 400mm x 415mm (Double Panel) Now if you thought the last Aruba radiator was small, wait until you see this one! This tiny square radiator is a mere 400mm x 415mm and it is the smallest radiator we stock. In fact, you won’t find a radiator much smaller anywhere.

What’s the difference between a Type 21 and Type 22 radiator?

Which is better type 21 or type 22 radiators?

Type 22 radiators are thicker than Type 21. The reason for this is that they have two sets of convector fins, thus taking up an inch or so more in diameter. This makes them better suited to larger spaces that need more power to be heated.

What’s the difference between Type 11 and Type 22 radiator?

Type 11 Radiator Sometimes called a K1 type, this design gives out the lowest heat, but is also much thinner than type 21 and type 22 radiators, so is perfectly suited to rooms where space is a premium.

Can I replace a Type 21 radiator with a Type 22?

There are no rules that say a type 22 radiator can’t be used anywhere. However, if a type 21 radiator (in any room) gives the correct output and to a length and height suitable looking for the wall space, then you use it. It will not come as far out from wall as a type 22. I note you have a TRV on that radiator.

How big should a double panel radiator be?

Switch to a double panel option when you need a stronger radiator. For example, a single panel radiator 20 inches (50.8 cm) (about 500 mm) long and 20 inches (50.8 cm) wide puts out 1333 BTUs of heat. A double panel radiator the same size puts out 2597 BTUs of heat. Get multiple radiators for larger rooms.

Which is the best single panel radiator to buy?

A versatile radiator that matches traditional design with the needs of modern home heating, single panel convector radiators are one of the most diverse radiators you can buy when it comes to size, budget, look and heat output.

How big is a radiator in the UK?

Radiator sizes in the UK are measured in millimetres (mm), so it’s worth bearing in mind that when using a radiator size calculator in the UK, we like to measure in metric! What Size Radiator Do I Need?

How big is a standard Stelrad vertical radiator?

Radiator sizes are not consistent over different models, due to their varying dimensions. For example, a Vertical Radiator will be much taller than it is wide than a Standard Radiator. What Are Standard Radiator Sizes? Standard radiator sizes at Stelrad are between 700mm x 1400m at the smallest, and 600mm x 2400mm at the largest.
