Argo Panel Trim

heatboy Member Posts: 1,468
It seems that the "new and improved" version of Panel trim no longer has the option of double tier element.  Is this true?  The 30% extra output would really help.

I haven't found any other manufacturer that offers a double tier option.  Has anyone found a manufacturer that does?

Thanks in advance.

    Slant/Fin has some nice options for high-output baseboard.

    Used to do a lot of fin tube baseboard in the 80's and 90's and I thought Argo was the best board out there. The enclosure seemed to be a thicker gauge steel which was nice.

    Baseboard just seems so pre-historic to me now with the European style radiant panels out here now.  When customers want to replace their baseboard. I give them options and they usually go with with the radiant panels after they find out the benefits, especially if they have a mod/con with ODR. 

    They're not always practical because of cost and height limitations, BTU requirements, etc..  I just thought I'd throw that out there.

    check out heating edge from smiths environmental they have a two pipe baseboard with all aluminum fin in it. great for use on mod-con boilers, geothermal h/p systems and solar heating systems. can be used on regular boiler heating systems.
