Variotherm Wall Heating

Home / Blog / Variotherm Wall Heating

Variotherm modular wall heating system is a modern, high output, efficient and cost effective heating solution that can be installed where other heating methods can’t be used.

Practical uses for wall heating include; bath/shower rooms, offices, churches, sports halls, new build properties with posi-joists etc.

The system can produce 201W/m2 @ 50 degree flow temperature and 20 degree room temperature. To put this into perspective, a screed floor heating system with tiles (the best output) is approximately 150W/m2, the wall heating has a 33% better output! A new build property is often calculated at a heating requirement of 40W/m2 and a refurbishment project is 60-80W/m2.

Because of this output and the most common heating requirements of a build project, it’s easy to see that the wall heating system only requires 30-50% of the equivalent space that a floor system would require to heat a room. For example, a 20m2 room would require 6-10m2 of wall heating. 2m x 0.6m panels are the most commonly used therefore only 5 linear meters of wall space would usually be sufficient!

The panels are made of gypsum fibre which warms, creating thermal mass. 11.6mm pipe is pre-fitted to the panels at 75mm spacing and the panels are ‘daisy chained’ and connected to a port on a distribution manifold via 16mm pipe to a maximum of 6.25m2 per port. The panels should be fitted to a stud type wall and insulated. The panels can be skimmed over and painted, wallpapered or tiled. See installation example;

For those asking “what about hanging pictures etc?”....don’t worry!!....a thermal strip can be supplied which shows where the pipe is when it’s on. Alternatively a pipe locator can detect pipe as the wall heating pipe has an aluminium layer.
