Heat cabinet sizing

I want to say it’s a Trane Heat Cabinet. The measurements don’t match exactly with the PDF I have. Perhaps a competitors brand? 

The actual convectors inside are identical to Trane 

Thanks all for your help

    Is there a question?

    It sounds like your post says that you already know that it is a Trane Cabinet Heater. Perhaps the outer cover was modified or is from a different year production than that which you have a PDF.

    Nice tile job over that radiator. A little dated though.

    For a 4” concealed cabinet depth my length options on my PDF are 18”, 24”, 36”, and 48” 

    The cabs I’m sizing are 40”, 32.5” etc…

    What’s throwing me is the grill design as well.

    It must be from a different year other than my PDF  

    I can use another manufacturer specs with same numbers 

    I’m wondering if anyone has any lit with cabs featuring this particular grill design

    I think (faulty memory perhaps) there are some similar in the EDR book as well.

    And yes, the taller "cabinets" were site built with parts by Trane or others (I assume mine are Trane because of one of the convector elements being labeled as such and the outputs from the Trane literature matching the rooms fairly closely).

    PS I like the tile!
