German Heaters

Ideal Roofs Ltd


Our German made electric radiators are extremely high quality electric radiators with the longest warranty available of 30 years.

Internally, the electrical elements are encased within non porous fireclay heat plates. When the element heats, it transfers the heat to the fireclay and then in turn to the radiant surface of the radiator. Once the core is hot, cold air is drawn from the floor and up through the flutes to create convection heat.

The Radiators continuously generate and conserve heat within the core of the heater. The heat retention is achieved by a series of fireclay heat plates in the centre of the radiator. Each heat plate has a coiled heating element totally buried within it, forming an integral part of the plate. Each heat plate has a typical power rating of 100 – 200 watts. When the electric heating system is switched on, the element gets hot, heating the storage plate within a matter of minutes. Once heated the heat plate will retain heat for well over 30 minutes, transferring heat to the metal casing and flutes of the Radiator.

More info on Our German Radiators
Each German radiator has a built in digital electronic room thermostat and 7 day programming system. Optionally they can be controlled remotely by radio frequency. The electronic thermostat is accurate to +/- 0.2 deg C and the timing

system allows you to pre-set required room temperatures at specific times. As the temperature drops in a room the thermostat senses the change and switches the heater on, perhaps for only a minute to re-heat the internal plates. This continual dynamic re-heat process continues thereby maintaining the room temperature. The ability to sense temperature changes and react immediately is one of the great benefits of this type of heating. Because of the ability to heat up quickly and store heat, the use of electricity is limited and the cost of using the radiators can be just a few pence per hour. Recent tests in the UK have confirmed the low running costs. These tests have shown that not only do these German radiators heat the room to a comfortable even temperature but also keep the floor temperature within a few degrees of the ambient room temperature.

German Storage Radiators

Not to be confused with night storage heaters, which require an overnight charge, dynamic storage German electric radiators can be used any part of the day or night. Our German storage radiators are designed to run on standard electricity tariffs however special tariffs are available offering low cost electricity overnight, during the day and also during the evening. Manufactured to the high engineering standards for which German engineering is renowned and have a 30 YEAR GUARANTEE. German radiators have been available throughout Europe for more than 30 years. The radiators are produced in the most modern factory of its kind with the most up to date production and powder coating facilities. The manufacturer has recently been awarded a gold medal for design and innovation. Recent tests have confirmed that the product is manufactured to the very latest European safety standards and bears the all-important CE mark. Independent tests confirm the economic running of these units.

Technical Information

At the heart of the German radiator is a refractory block combining a unique storage material with modern design and technology into one highly efficient heating unit. The heat is transferred within minutes from the internal blocks to the specially designed flutes, which radiate heat and start the convection process. This provides an optimum of radiated, convected and stored heat to provide all round warmth. There are no fluids within the radiator, so it can be guaranteed that there will never be any leaks. Supplied as standard in white ( RAL 9010 ) but available in any colour you may want, just let us know the RAL colour required

There are several other suppliers of German Heating Radiators in the U.K. with one major player being who offers a similar, albeit slightly inferior, product with a 10 year warranty.

As stated previously our product has a 10 year manufacturers which is galvanised (theirs isn’t), variable colour choice (theirs isn’t), many variable control options (they have one) and can be fitted independently of our business by a qualified electrician (they don’t do supply only – well not openly).

The major difference between our own offering and theirs is that they will never discuss price of a radiator openly. Pricing for them is a very guarded topic and they are typically twice the price (their list price) of our own products which are of far better quality.
We are able, given the room dynamics, to very quickly provide a cost over the telephone either fitted or on a supply only basis.
