How many tubular heaters can link together?
We recommend that you install no more than 4 tubular heaters above one another in a ‘ladder effect’, but Thermotube tubular heaters may be installed into a circuit and controlled centrally.
How hot do they get?
Because of the lightweight aluminium the tubular heater surface can reach temperatures of 120c so it is highly recommended that if there is any chance of the young, elderly or infirm coming in to contact with them that a tubular heater guard must be fitted.
Do you need a guard for your tubular heater?
For all round protection it is advised that a tube heater guard is fitted as they offer good protection against items coming to rest against the heater (for example in a wardrobe) and when used in perhaps boarding kennels or cattery’s they offer excellent protection against damage from the animal and to the animal.
