R PANEL®

Energy Comparison between R Panel® and Traditional Radiators

Heating high-volume buildings like industrial sheds is one of the strong points of the R Panel® technology. In this case the advantages such as energy saving and thermal efficiency remarkable also in the case of small-medium size rooms become more and more pronounced.

The use of irradiation instead of convection allows one to operate at lower temperatures, to have a very small temperature vertical gradient and fewer thermal losses. The distribution of heat is uniform, leading to high thermal comfort.

In the following it is shown a comparison between the R Panel® technology and a traditional convective system. The installed power is related to an activation of the plant 24h/24h. The data reported are the official ones obtained by the Department of Engineering of the University of Catania (IT). It is evident the energy saving obtained with the R Panel® technology can overcome the 45%.
