In Floor Trench Heating is the perfect solution for Homes, Offices and Industrial heating requirements.

The discrete nature of perimeter trench heating make use of space saving radiator technology.

Our Canal Heaters are produced by Jaga the Premium Manufacturer of Trench Heaters in the UK.

Our Perimeter Heating solutions whether adjacent to a wall or glass facade or Glass doors utilise heat convection of forced draught heating to create a heat curtain or all round room heating.

Against a Glass window area a Trench Heater will significantly reduce localised cool areas and down draughts, stopping condensation forming.

We sell Hot water / central heating trench heating heaters with or without fan assistance.

A standard perimeter heating model will act in a similar way to a radiator with cool air entering the trench heater being warmed by the heating element and warmed air then rises back into the room, generally the trench heater gets fitted with the entry side being adjacent to the glass face or wall.

Our Fan Assisted trench heating mechanically draws air into the heating element and forces the air into the room, the fan assisted DBE units have the benefit of significantly higher BTU outputs for the same size and no additional losses related the the grille type.

The Fan Assisted Perimeter Heating requires a 230V AC supply and the unit can be run with or without the fan control powered, if the fan is switched off the unit will act as a standard heating model.

The Fan Assisted Models function via a water temperature switch so basically when your central Heating cuts in the water temperature rises and the fan starts, the Fan Trench Units can also benefit from a Thermostatic water control valve similar to a radiator valve, this is an option when purchasing your trench heater online.

The DBE relates to the fan only – basically the fan cuts in / out depending on the water temp (or if switched off).

The water temp decreases or increases depending on the room temperature either acting on a thermostatic valve like a normal radiator or the wall thermostat switching off the boiler.

Either way you will still need valves to control the water to the trench for running and isolation purposes like a normal radiator.

You can use manual valves only (lockshields) or Thermostatic.

The external insulation is to insulate the frame from the exterior, usually you would not need if fitting in a Trench Area that is not open, however it is sometimes specified. If you are fitting in a preformed Trench the 5mm insulation on the base can provide a bit of cushioning also.

The Internal pipe brackets are for when you have several trench radiators inline, whereby pipework enters one trench and then passes through internally to the next trench – it just makes the installation simpler for the builder/plumber.
