Hot water radiant-strip heating
The Illustrated Guide to Mechanical Building Services, Third Edition (BG 31/2017), by David Bleicher, published by BSRIA in 2017, states in relation to hot water radiant-strip heating: ‘A typical system comprises one or more steel hot water pipes clipped to a profiled aluminium plate which reflects the heat downwards. The back of the plate is insulated to maximise the radiant output and minimise the convective component. The use of medium temperature hot water (MTHW) or high temperature hot water (HTHW) also maximises radiant output.’
