Frenger's Modula range of Radiant Heating Panels are available as 'SP' (Standard Performance) and 'HP' (High Performance) and as a ceiling recessed panel or a free hanging (exposed) panel with fully welded and linished corners for superior aesthetics. The unobtrusive modular heating cassettes are manufactured in house by Frenger, here in the UK and constructed from smooth-faced Zintec steel, extruded aluminium heat exchanger pipe seats and 15mm OD copper coils that are produced in-house on Frenger's state of the art full CNC serpentine bend machine from thousand meter drums of copper to make heat exceeds coils without any joints what so ever and to safe guard against risks of leakage. Frenger can provide tube centres as close as 70mm.
