RP3 Radiant Ceiling Panels


RP3-03 provides an almost invisible source of gentle radiant heat

  • RP3 radiant ceiling panels are IP44 rated and provide an economic means of heating a commercial space without producing noise or draughts
  • Typical applications include care homes, offices and meeting rooms
  • High mounting position means that it is impossible for people to accidently come into contact with the source of heat.  For this reason RP3 radiant ceiling panels are an ideal heating system for care homes.
  • RP3 radiant ceiling panels are designed to fit snuggly into a standard (24mm) suspended ceiling grid but can just as easily be fitted to a conventional ceiling using the low-profile bracket provided.

Typically, radiant ceiling panels are controlled by a wall-mounted programmable thermostat.  Depending on the quantity of radiant ceiling panels installed, they can either be switched via a thermostat, a thermostat and a suitably rated contactor or via our PC radiant heater control box. (The control box is designed to make multi heater installs quicker and easier)

Depending on the application, a conventional room thermostat may be more suitable.

For maximum economy and performance your selection needs to meet two requirements:

  1. Sufficient kW output
  2. Correct panel distribution

Estimating kW Output

In simple terms the output of the installed RP ceiling panels must be greater than the heat losses from the building during periods of cold weather.  A small amount of heat is lost through the walls, ceilings and floors with more significant losses through windows and doors.

To estimate the heat loss from your building you may like to use our heat calculation tool

Heat Calculator

The estimated heat loss figure is the absolute minimum kW output that you should consider installing.  We would suggest adding approximately 50% to this figure to allow for an acceptable warm up time in cold conditions as well as making allowances for exceptional weather conditions and possible errors in the original data used in the estimate.

Correct Panel Distribution

Having established the minimum kW requirement, select the minimum number of panels whilst ensuring that the distance between individual panels does not exceed the distance between the panels and the floor.  When installing the panels into a suspended ceiling the choice of model will be dictated by the dimensions of the ceiling grid.

RP - Correct panel distribution

Radiant ceiling panels, ceiling mounted so that the distance between the panels (dimensions A+B) is no greater than the distance between the panels and the floor (dimension C).
