Trench Heater type VK15
Trench heating from Verano® has been designed considering their primary usage in spacious interiors of domestic and light commercial buildings that may have many glassing façades. Due to this heating emitters from Verano will suit perfectly to luxury apartments, office blocks, utility buildings, car showrooms, shopping malls or even church buildings – whilst everywhere, where building occupants may consider keeping optimal temperature being well composed to interior design esthetics and discreetness.
Trench heating is considered as a significant part of any modern heating system. Heating emitter that is assembled in a floor based, trench casing and covered with an elegant aluminum, wood or stainless steel grille would compose with a room in a based possible manner, as by being discrete-nearly invisible, it does not interfere with space or specific room character requirements.
In most case scenarios of interior design, it is recommended to place trench heating along the glazed façades and windscreens or French Windows keeping their length the same as façade/windscreen or French Window. Trench heating could be also placed along core walls and building corners.
Trench heating being used along facade would create an air curtain that will act as a natural barrier that separates cold and hot air, thus would restrict so called cold air draught at the low level of a room, would minimize heat losses whilst would increase the entire heating system efficiency.
Trench heating from Verano® are available as a straight line trench casing and coils, but also we offer on demand curved and angle version that will suit any atypical interior design and will harmonise with the modern but specific building architecture.
To heat the room of irregular shape, such as circle or semi-circle and at the same time not to disturb its aesthetics and harmony ideally product will be angled and curved heaters available with or without fan.

Benefits of trench heating
Exceptional energy savings is primary achieved by very low effective water capacity, perfect heating resistance and low thermal inertia.
Trench heating from Verano may work very well with every single kind and type of thermal control what also may be consider as one of critical factor for reducing heating energy bills.
Trench heating distributes heating in perfect and discrete manner inside spacious and elegant interiors that having usually large glass façades. The only visible element of trench heating is an elegant grille that is composed into the floor that covers trench and coil elements. Easy access through taking off a grille would enable easy access for cleaning or maintenance of a trench heating.
Trench heating are the ones that among many types of heating emitters would react in the quickest way for any changes of any thermal requirements in a room. This quick adaptation capacity allows to avoid any room overheating.
Trench heating that are placed along the outskirts of a building would create a natural air curtain that may separate warm and cold air and prevents "floating" cold air at the low, floor base level.
Using trench heating allows to eliminate of the moisture condensation from the surface of glass façades.
Heating any interior by using a natural convection allows to provide even temperature distribution and a natural circulation of air in any room.
There are high quality materials being used for designing copper aluminum coil, that also warrants corrosion resistance but also protection against low quality of water from the boiler. Due to using a raw steel with hot dip zm coating our heating emitters are usually more corrosion resistant.
Construction of heater
Grate covering the heating:
- Aluminum grate (natural, varnished in any colour of RAL pallet or anodized);
- Wooden grate: oak, ash, beech, merbau, jatoba (natural wood);
- Longitudinal grate made of stainless steel
Dimentions of heater
Verano Convector® trench heating of the following width dimension are available: 200, 250, 290, 380 mm. The exchanger may be placed along wall of the trench (trench heater 350 and 540 mm deep) or centrically (trench heater 75, 90, 110, 140, 250 deep). In the second variant, air is sucked at both sides of the heating element. The width of the heating results from the width of the exchanger and the width of the air suction zone.
The length of Verano trench convectors ranges from 800 to 4000 mm. The depth of trenches of the heater is: 75, 90 and 110, 140, 250, 350 and 540 mm. Trench heating have ¾" connection nozzles.
There is a possibility of making a trench heating of VK15 type of non-standard lengths (NS).

Certificate of pressure resistance
The latest results of the tests carried out in accordance with a Standard EN 442-1, showed that the maximum working pressure of Verano Convector trench heating is 1.0 MPa (10 atm). The results of measurements in the Czech Accreditation Institute in Prague showed that the Verano Convector trench heating have passed the test pressure corresponding to 17 atmospheres (1.7 MPa). Due to a very high pressure resistance, Verano Convector trench heating can work with any type of installation.
