Vale’s floor grille trench heating system is a more traditional method of heating a room with decorative cast iron floor grilles, which finish flush with the floor covering.
The system works using finned copper pipes or electric finned convectors which are run around the perimeter of the room. The heat emitters are sunk into trenches. Warmth is circulated around the room by convection in the same way it would from a radiator.
Type A - Finned Copper Pipes Connected To Existing Heating
This is an excellent way of spurring from the house heating system and therefore utilising existing resources. The conservatory heating can only be operated when the house heating is on, unless the conservatory is on a separate circuit and thermostat to the boiler. The heating elements are supplied in 1 metre lengths but can be cut down to shorter lengths if required.
Type B - Electric Finned Convector Heating
This is a totally independent system with a built-in thermostat offering instantaneous heat. The unit can be operated manually or thermostatically and is also available with a programmable timer.
We offer our cast iron floor grilles in two different designs and a selection of lengths. All of our floor grilles are painted with a black low sheen finish.
