    Those look like Stelrad to me.
    Those will be tough to find.
    How are they connected to the system. Most panes rads have some flexibility to pipe up. Typically they are on the bottom side.
    Supply always on the inside.

    I just installed a similar style in my home. Looks similar to Buderus models

    I would look at Myson and Quinn Barlo. They both have panels with rounded tops.

    Those look very similar to the Myson Select ones I have from 2004, but there are some subtle differences. The profile of the "T" fitting that joins the inner and outer panel seems to have a slightly different shape.

    Here's a link, there are dimensional drawings and such. https://houseneeds.com/heating/hydronic-radiators/myson-select-series-double-panel-radiator-22g-sd3060vn-sd-30-60vn

    Looks like the Mysons are discontinued although there are subs. I'm just a homeowner, I'm sure some Euro-panel-rad expert will chime in any second now.

    Could be Heatlines or Purmo as well. Any replacement in similar size and depth will work as a replacement. At one time there were 8 different German wall panel brands imported to the US. What is the purple on the rads?

    I've never seen Myson panel rads that thick or with those rounded edges on the panels (hence the hanging brackets on the backside). I don't think anyone makes panels like that any more. The best you could hope for is "old stock" that is uninstalled. Those appear to have a "thick" profile or stand-off from the wall.
    The purple on the rads is purple paint on a white rad.

    You're right about the rounded edges, although my Myson Selects definitely have the same style welded hanging brackets on the backs of the rads. There are two options for hanging them, there's a sort of spring loaded bracket that with a plastic sliding piece that grabs the top and bottom edges (of the non rounded edge type rads) and also some galvanized brackets which can hook onto the brackets welded onto the back of the rads. I hung some of mine with the spring loaded edge clamp brackets and some with the galvanized bracket that hooks on to the straps welded on the back of the rads.

    I don’t know whose panels they are but I would be more alarmed as to why they are failing a educated guess would be make up water due to possible leak in the system or possibly non barrier pex tubing ,I would be trying to locate the leak and ensure that the system is not taking on any water by pressurizing the system and shutting off the feed valve if pressure drops I would be searching for a leak . A good corrosion inhibitors like sentinel products would be in line and possible a dirt mag separator . Without ensuring your not taking on make up water those new panel rads will also fail being they are thin walled steel and do not like to see a lot of fresh water when they do they rust and fail . A cast iron rads might be a bit more tolerable but taking on make up water also limes out your boiler and usually the boiler will start kettling another sign is circulator pump failure . Peace nand good luck clammy

    They are close to Buderus and Dianorm, my brands, but they look a little below them in quality and design.  Also, I have had both installed in my brothers kitchen and inlaws
