    Baseboard radiators with built in ruturns

    I am looking for brands of baseboard radiators that have return lines built into them. I have two rooms in my house that are on a slab and would like to eliminate the line that runs underneath the slab that connects the two rooms. I have seen radiant baseboards that have the two lines built into them already,are they rated to handle 180 degree boiler water?I have learned a great deal reading The Wall over the past couple of years but have never seen this topic discussed.

    I have this stuff. Its from Slant Fin. I run 180 water in it and it ticks and pops a lot but thats what they call charm in these parts. Its basically just regular finn tube in a bigger housing.

    Sterling Petite-7

    I have Sterling Petite-7 baseboard, which I did exactly what you want. They don't have "built in" return, but are set up to use optional wire hangers to support a 3/4 pipe above the fin tube. A standard return elbow connects the end of the fin tube & the 3/4 return pipe.

    Dunno.. It looks like Baseline.. Its cheap and nasty. The return runs underneath the fintube.

    any sterling or argo brands

    offer a return pipe hanger that can carry tubing back over the finned element. Dont think you can do it underneath.

    slant fin

    has room to lay the return pipe right on top of the element. An elbow and a street ell and back you go
