7 “Like the gentle warmth of the sun” Great feeling of comfort at low average temperatureNo hot or cold spotsHeats from the lowest point upwardsDoesn’t deplete oxygen in the roomNo “hot foot” syndrome
8 Quick and Efficient Control Rapid warm uponly .266 litres/metre of waterdoesn’t need to heat the floor slabIt’s its own heat distribution systemno pipes to hideheats the room, not the ceiling
9 Easily retro-fitted Uses standard 15mm components Fit to radiator provisionsSurface mount where no provisionsNo need to replace floorElectrical resistance version needs no boiler
10 The Coanda Effect - Columbia Encyclopedia Named after its discover, Romanian aerodynamicist Henri-Marie Coanda ( )“Coanda effect or wall-attachment effect, the tendency of a moving fluid, either liquid or gas, to attach itself to a surface and flow along it. As a fluid moves across a surface a certain amount of friction (called “skin friction”) occurs between the fluid and the surface, which tends to slow the moving fluid. This resistance to the flow of the fluid pulls the fluid towards the surface, causing it stick to the surface.”- Columbia Encyclopedia
11 The Coanda Effect - applied Fit skirting to exterior wallsWarms and dries the wallForms insulating layerHeat radiates from the wallsWarmed air circulatesWorks well even on badly insulated walls!
13 How does it compare to radiators? Spreads heat evenly - no wasted heat above the radiators.
14 How does it compare to UFH? Quicker responseNo slab to warm up (or cool down!)Much less water to warmMore even temperature distributionCan use with real wood floorsNo problems with carpet underlayEasily retrofittedEasier to install, repair or modify
15 How does it compare to other skirting systems? Highest output in a compact system:Climaboard ST = 203W/mtr at 60oCClimaboard Power Plus = 260W/mtr at 60oCClimaboard DUO = 406W/mtr at 60oCNeeds lessRuns more efficientlyUses standard 15mm copper pipingWater only ever in contact with copperA standard plumbing solution for every situationAluminium fins warm the air internallyLower surface temperature - <43oC at 80oC FlowFlexible mounting of componentsLess noise
16 Cut-away Section – Climaboard ST Shows pipes, fins, backplate, top profile, mounting clips and front panel
17 Climaboard DUO Climaboard DUO uses 4 rows of pipes and measures 250 x 30 mm
18 Connecting sectionsUse standard solder, push-fit, compression or press-fit connectors (must be less than 23 mm OD) e.g. Cuprofit (details)
19 Connecting at cornersUse 2 x elbow with appropriate connectors
20 Connecting flow to return Use “U” connectorwith choice of solder, push-fit, compression or press-fit connectors
21 Neater CornersUse for internal or for external corners
22 Ending runs Use ready-made RH and LH end pieces
23 Electrical Inserts 200 W/meter Use where wet systems are just not possible
24 Other colours available RAL coloursSpecial ColoursWood Effect
25 How much will I need? Method 1 What room volume?What insulation standard?What heating method?What water temperature?Minimum local temperature?Estimate with our Excel Calculator(Available on request)
26 How much will I need? Method 2 Assume approx 20cms per M3 of roomTypically about 2 walls out of four (for very large rooms, use method 1)Apply wherever possible to exterior walls2 walls on corner roomsMinimum 1 on othersFor aesthetics use empty Climaboard® for the remaining wall space
