Custom made at our factory in the Scottish Borders, our helically tension wound, spiral Finned Tube (aka Gilled Tube) is typically used by heating specialists creating bespoke heating systems in large projects where long tube runs are required.
Finned Tube is highly versatile and its simplicity projects a minimalist style making them ideal for heating systems in contemporary buildings as well as in historical and refurbishment projects.
Finned Tube, typically carbon steel, has a relatively narrow tube at its core and a spiral metal ‘fin’ wound around it providing an enlarged surface area for the circulating air to pick up the heat energy and carry it around the room/space by means of natural convection.
We can design Finned Tube on a project by project basis to meet exact specifications. Single tubes of up to 6 meters can be supplied with flanged ends to join together with a gasket, or with threaded ends for joining with coupling joints or unions.
Our Finned Tubes are widely used in Church heating throughout the UK, Read about some of our recent Church projects here.

Gilled/Finned tube should be installed by suitably qualified engineers.
