Does anyone have EDR information on Kolher wall radiators? Any information would be great! Thanks in advance.

    How do their dimensions compare to other wall rads? If their dimensions are similar I would thing the rating would be similar. I don't have dan's book EDR.

    Just wrap a string around the elements (tubes) and calculate the surface area, it takes about 10 minutes.

    I don't see Kolher radiators listed in Dan's EDR book. Are you sure it is not a different radiator that might have been rebranded as Kolher? Any other markings on it? Is it cast iron or pressed steel?

    Cast iron, no other markings. It's similar to other rad dimensions but the EDR seems crazy (high), unless I'm misunderstanding the calculation.

    Cast iron, how wide? How tall, how deep? Is it column or tube and how many sections? With that onfo one of us can calculate the EDR and see how close we are to what you think it is.

    I'm a plumbing/heating contractor and I calculated it in this manner, I just think its high. I was hoping someone had some old brochure for kolher wall hung radiators to be honest. I can't find anything :(

    Hi Danny- the Kohler rads I've seen were similar to others made around the same time. By this time the ratings were pretty much standardized. But go ahead and post a pic- there's a chance it could be unique, and anyway we'd like to see it.

    Try shrinking them to roughly 600x460 and see if that works.
