How does it work ?

ThermaSkirt is manufactured using a highly conductive alluminium alloy that radiates heat up to 5 times more effectively than steel.

Radiant heat, emitted low down and all-around creates that wonderful warm environment often associated with underfloor heating, but being above ground, ThermaSkirt responds in minutes and works with any floor construction or covering. Connecting onto any typical central heating system, boiler or heat pump ThermaSkirt carries all necessary testing and safety certificates.

Connects onto existing 2 pipe radiator system
Oval tubes create a super-slim profile
Responds quickly to heat demand
Works with conventional boilers & renewables

How is it installed?

Designed with the DIY enthusiast in mind, ThermaSkirt is installed as an alternative skirting board. Available in lengths up to 6 metres, most walls can be installed in one, simple section. Unique and patented push fit connectors make for a quick and and easy installation.

PERFORMANCE VS FLOW RATE

Output in Watts/m (or BTU/ft) is only slightly affected over a wide range of flow rates. Our typical test data is based on 56g/sec in accordance with the BSRIA test BS EN 442-1. Output data is given here for flow rates between 10g/sec & 112g/sec which covers the lower and upper ranges of suitable performance for central heating systems.

Cost Saving

Combing the skirting and radiators in one, creates a very cost effective, budget conscious heating solution whether it be new build or retrofit. Provided in a pre-finished, tough epoxy powder paint finish with a removable ‘top gasket’ (instead of requiring caulking), it is a rapid, dry installation that requires no curing time before floor coverings are laid and utilises a single trade to fit.
