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 80 degrees C 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.
