Hitte Fan-Assisted Trench Heating (LPHW)

From: £410.00 ex VAT

The Hitte Fan-Assisted Trench Heating is an effective space heating system either as a powerful yet discrete primary heating system, or, as a fast acting secondary heating system perfect for counteracting downdraught or condensation in highly glazed areas. It operates using piped hot water (LPHW) as the heat source which can be supplied from a conventional hot water boiler, solar energy hot water system or a ground source heat pump.

Product Description

Trench Heating is now universally found throughout buildings of all type including homes, offices, restaurants, shopping malls, galleries and museums providing discreet heating within entrance halls, reception areas, corridors, living and office spaces and conservatories. It is set into the floor, within a trench, and the heat rises through an attractive aluminium grille that sits flush with the floor surface.
Subtle, it perfectly complements the modern minimalist interior design style and is ideal where space is at a premium. It is often the architect’s heating system of choice when seeking to utilise natural light in the most effective way and incorporating large areas of glazing in new developments, building extensions or refurbishments.

With a Fan-Assisted Trench Heating system, the fan accelerates natural convection and the enhanced air flow delivers higher heating outputs than the Natural Convection Trench models. Low and safe 24V cross-flow fans force the air over the finned heat exchanger elements accelerating the air flow. This makes a Fan-Assisted Trench Heating system an ideal, powerful, yet discreet, primary heating system or a fast acting secondary heating system perfect for counteracting downdraught or condensation in highly glazed areas.

The Hitte Fan-Assisted Trench Heating units use piped hot water (LPHW) as the heat source. Hot water can be supplied from a conventional hot water boiler, solar energy hot water system or a ground source heat pump. The heat output directly relates to the flow/return temperatures of that source. Internal surfaces are insulated and coated with heat reflective finish to improve the trench’s efficiency.

Design & Installation

Trench heating systems can be supplied in a multitude of geometries and with additional features such as ‘dummy’ sections where a continuous aesthetic is desired without additional heat output, with mitred corners, column features and even with curved trench sections. We’d be delighted to help you explore options and design your optimum scheme. Just contact us for assistance and to talk through your ideas.

Our Trench Heaters should be installed by suitably qualified builders, plumbers and electricians. The unit should be securely fixed and electrical connections made by a suitably qualified person in accordance with the latest edition of the IEE Requirements for Electrical Installation (BS7671).
