If I could find my copy of EDR, I probably would not have to come to The Wall, but I need the answer in less time than it would take to buy a new copy -- or to find the oine I already own.. So ... does anybody recognize this beastie? It is about 14 wide X 22 high and 3" thick. If someone could send me the EDR rating, I would really appreciate it.
never seen one quite like that!
I can't come up with the manufacture's rating of that very unusual wall radiator, but I would assume that it is probably about the same as the American Peerless wall radiator of about the same dimensions.
Their Type 7A radiator measuares 13 5/16" x 21 7/8" x 2 7/8" It had a surface area of 7 sq. ft.
Information comes from American Peerless Wall Radiators, copyright 1920.
