Replacing fan convectors is made quick and easy

Biddle has launched a sectional version of its Forceflow fan convector to make the replacement of ‘back-access’ fan convectors simple and straightforward, as its configuration can be altered to match the existing builder’s work footprint. Fan convectors have become a popular choice for heating school classrooms, favoured for their ability to warm up rooms very quickly and that they require only minimal wall space.

As a result of these benefits they are usually replaced like for like, but it is sometimes difficult to source a fan convector that is the same as the unit being replacement, which could be 20 to 30 years old. Biddle’s sectional version of its Forceflow fan convector is designed to easily replace any manufacturer’s ‘back-access’ fan-convector unit. Its flexible design ensures compatibility, no matter that the size of configuration of the previous product. Nine combinations provide five heights from 1800 to 2400 mm and five widths from 750 to 1750 mm.

Heat outputs are from 3.8 to 17.9 kW for 82/71°C LPHW applications and 3.1 to 15.4 kW for 60/40°C LPHW applications.

Marketing manager Andrew Saxon explains, ‘Fan convectors are really popular for heating school classrooms. Not only do they take a room from cold to warm in around 15 minutes, but they’re also two or three times smaller than radiators, hence saving valuable wall space.’
