H E A T S T R I P ‘THH SERIES’ SELECTION GUIDELINES

 

HEATSTRIP panels should be selected to provide the required heating effect in the area to be heated. To determine the kilowatts of heating required. A heat loss calculation should be made and HEATSTRIP units selected to meet this load.

 

To select the required heaters you need to know total square feet area to be heated, mounting height of heater from floor to bottom surface of heater and the type of application.

 

Example 1

A 432sqf area with heater height of 10 feet for an outdoor restaurant annex with enclosed blinds.

From chart above select “Outdoor undercover enclosed area” table. At a mounting height of 10’, the

THH3200 has an 80sqf coverage area. Dividing the total 432sqf area by 80 indicates 6 x THH3200 would

be selected. Alternatively, 12 x THH1500 could be selected (432 ÷ 38=11.36)

 

As a quick selection guide for standard application the following factors can be applied:
