Radiant Panel Ceiling Heating - This course is designed to give an overview of Radiant Panel design and how radiant panels work. It also covers specifying sizing and selecting Radiant Panels, installation options, specialist applications and the future for Radiant Panels.

Low Surface Temperature Radiators - This CPD provides provide guidance on where and how Low Surface Temperature Radiators may be efficiently specified to maximize the safety of vulnerable people and comply with the relevant NHS and  HSE requirements.

High Efficiency with Radiators and Low Temperature Heating - Here we show how fast reacting Panel Radiators are an excellent heat emitter solution for any Low Temperature Heating System, and may provide significant fuel savings compared to high thermal mass heat emission systems.

Manifold based Plumbing and Heating Systems show both central heating and domestic hot water distribution and performance may be enhanced by using our covering manifold based systems. There are also significant benefits regarding both the installation and maintenance of the heating and hot water systems.
