Vales floor grille system is trench heating with decorative cast iron grilles sitting within an aluminium support frame. Their cast iron floor grilles come in two different designs and a selection of lengths. All of Vale's floor grilles are painted with a black, low sheen finish.
Vale's floor grilles system uses either finned copper pipes connected to existing heating systems in the house or finned electric convectors which are run around the perimeter of the room. The heat emitters are sunk into trenches and topped with their decorative metal floor grilles, which finish flush with the floor covering. Warmth is circulated around the room by convection in the same way it would from a radiator.
For those requiring help with the layout of grilles or the dimensions for the trench and would like to make the installation process as easy as possible, Vale offer a Design and Manufacture package. By providing them with accurate internal dimensions of the room and an approximate design layout of the grilles, Vale produce a detailed CAD drawing showing layout and position of the grilles, with detailed dimensions for builders to set out and construct the trench required for the heating elements.
The same drawing goes to produce a fully pre-manufactured frame to precise measurements, braced to form an accurate and rigid support for the grilles. The frame is dismantled into transportable and manageable sections for easy reassembly on site.
