The bulky cast-iron cen­tral heat­ing radi­a­tors that once fit­ted the vast major­i­ty of res­i­den­tial or work spaces are being replaced by ele­gant, neat and effi­cient mod­els, such as Inso­lo steel pan­el radi­a­tors. We will describe in detail their capa­bil­i­ties and areas of appli­ca­tion.

Steel pan­el radi­a­tors Inso­lo are made of car­bon steel, they are impec­ca­ble in qual­i­ty and per­for­mance. Spe­cial­ists deserved­ly refer Inso­lo to the group of inex­pen­sive and at the same time reli­able radi­a­tors. At the same time, Inso­lo is cheap­er than many Euro­pean ana­logues by 20–30%, and in terms of qual­i­ty it is quite wor­thy com­pe­ti­tion to them.

It is worth say­ing a few words about the plant that pro­duces Inso­lo radi­a­tors. The enter­prise is about four years old, it is equipped with mod­ern auto­mat­ed equip­ment, which min­i­mizes the influ­ence of the human fac­tor, and, con­se­quent­ly, min­i­mizes the num­ber of defects. High-tech pro­duc­tion, locat­ed in a region that is inex­pen­sive in terms of labor and ener­gy resources, allows you to get a good prod­uct at a low cost. The Ego­plast com­pa­ny, which sup­plies Inso­lo radi­a­tors to the Russ­ian mar­ket, is con­fi­dent in their qual­i­ty and gives a ten-year war­ran­ty for these prod­ucts. This is a rather seri­ous peri­od, giv­en the specifics of Russ­ian heat­ing net­works. Of course, the war­ran­ty is valid under the con­di­tions that are described in the prod­uct pass­port: com­pli­ance with the tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics of the sys­tem (coolant, pres­sure, etc.) and instal­la­tion of the radi­a­tor by a spe­cial­ist who has per­mits for con­struc­tion and instal­la­tion work.

The Inso­lo radi­a­tor is ide­al for heat­ing pri­vate hous­es and cot­tage set­tle­ments with autonomous heat­ing, busi­ness cen­ters and office build­ings with their own boil­er rooms. The use in such build­ings is due to the con­stant pres­ence of a coolant in the heat­ing sys­tem and sta­ble pres­sure.

High heat dis­si­pa­tion. This main char­ac­ter­is­tic direct­ly depends on the area of ​​the heat­ing sur­face, which is quite large for Inso­lo.

Pos­si­bil­i­ty to adjust the tem­per­a­ture. The Inso­lo steel radi­a­tor allows you to reg­u­late the tem­per­a­ture in the room entrust­ed to it: valve-type radi­a­tors are equipped with a ther­mo­sta­t­ic head, which will allow you to con­trol the micro­cli­mate in the house with an accu­ra­cy of up to a degree.

Wide size range. A huge advan­tage of Inso­lo steel pan­el radi­a­tors is their wide range of sizes: height from 30 to 90 cm and length from 40 cm to 3 m. Such a vari­ety of sizes makes it pos­si­ble to per­fect­ly fit the radi­a­tor into the inte­ri­or. The depth can also vary, so the own­er can choose a radi­a­tor for any needs, indi­vid­u­al­ly for each room.

Low cost. This qual­i­ty becomes notice­able not in itself, but in com­par­i­son with oth­er rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the fam­i­ly of radi­a­tors. For exam­ple, with alu­minum and bimetal­lic (cast iron mod­els, although they are in some demand, but, accord­ing to experts, they are grad­u­al­ly being squeezed out of the mar­ket).

Let’s com­pare the cost of heat pro­duced by dif­fer­ent radi­a­tors. We take the Inso­lo radi­a­tor (type 22, with side con­nec­tion, 500 mm high and 1000 mm long) as the basis for com­par­i­son. The heat out­put of such a radi­a­tor is 1881 W, the retail price at the time of writ­ing is about 3900 rubles. The price of a Euro­pean-made alu­minum radi­a­tor sim­i­lar in heat dis­si­pa­tion (500 mm high, con­sist­ing of 10 sec­tions) aver­ages 5,000 rubles (heat dis­si­pa­tion of one sec­tion is 180–190 W). As you can see, the price for 1 W of heat trans­fer from a steel radi­a­tor is 2.07 rubles. (3900 rubles / 1881 W), for an alu­minum radi­a­tor — 2.63 rubles. (5000 rubles / 1900 W); bimetal­lic radi­a­tors are even more expen­sive. That is, the heat from the Inso­lo steel pan­el radi­a­tor is about 27% cheap­er than from alu­minum.

In this case, one more nuance should be tak­en into account: Inso­lo steel pan­el radi­a­tors are equipped with plugs and an air vent, and radi­a­tors with side con­nec­tion are sup­plied with brack­ets for mount­ing the radi­a­tor on the wall. For alu­minum radi­a­tors, com­po­nents, as a rule, need to be pur­chased addi­tion­al­ly.

Con­sid­er a real exam­ple of heat­ing a small coun­try house. The project includ­ed Ital­ian-made alu­minum radi­a­tors 500 mm high and 100 mm deep:

  • — 6‑section — 5 pcs. (heat dis­si­pa­tion of each 1119 W), price for 1 radi­a­tor — 3000 rubles;

  • — 7‑section — 6 pcs. (heat dis­si­pa­tion of each 1398 W), price for 1 radi­a­tor — 3500 rubles;

  • — 12-sec­tion — 2 pcs. (heat dis­si­pa­tion of each 2089 W), price for 1 radi­a­tor — 6000 rubles.

The cost of com­po­nents for radi­a­tors is about 150 rubles. per set.

The retail price of all radi­a­tors with acces­sories is 49,950 rubles.

And here is how the esti­mate for a sim­i­lar project looks like, in which Inso­lo radi­a­tors are used (type 22, 500 mm high and 104 mm deep):

  • – 500x600 – 5 pcs. (heat dis­si­pa­tion of each 1129 W), the price for a radi­a­tor is about 2500 rubles;

  • — 500x800 — 6 pcs. (heat dis­si­pa­tion of each 1505 W), the price for a radi­a­tor is about 3200 rubles;

  • – 500x1200 – 2 pcs. (heat dis­si­pa­tion of each 2257 W), the price for a radi­a­tor is about 4600 rubles.

The retail price of all radi­a­tors with acces­sories is 40,900 rubles. Thus, the ben­e­fit for the con­sumer using steel pan­el radi­a­tors is 9050 rubles.

Easy to use. The steel pan­el radi­a­tor is sim­ple and unpre­ten­tious in leav­ing. The own­er only needs to reg­u­lar­ly car­ry out air bleed mea­sures, make sure that the coolant is con­stant­ly present in the sys­tem, and the pres­sure does not exceed 10 bar. This is enough to enjoy inex­pen­sive and aes­thet­ic warmth at any time of the year.
