Can you identify the manufacturer of this baseboard

I am doing some renovations and adding baseboard. Having trouble matching this 1992 vintage hydronic baseboard radiator. Height is around 8-1/2" with the distinguishing feature being the indented section in the panel.

Thanks for your help!

    I thought the hinged damper was a SlantFin exclusive? But I have not seen that style cover.

      I'm fairly certain that's a Sterling product - Their Kom Pak is 8.5" tall.

    That looks like those in my house. 8.5" tall

    Got those in 1996 at "close out prices". A 6' was a KP6A 3/4" X 6' radiation w/cov. (AKA STL.KP6A for item number)

    I assume KP is "KomPact"

    Left and right end caps were 2 1/2". (J-3ALH or J-3ARH)

    Hinged end caps were 4 1/4" (J-8LH or J-8RH).

    They apparently were popular in IA and northern NE.

    Yes, I still have the original invoices for everything I put into this house.

    Because of reasons like this.....otherwise I would never have known the brand name.

    Thanks everyone! JUGHNE, I'm in Denver, so next to Nebraska. Makes sense! It looks like every related model is out of stock at FW Webb, so it's likely no longer made:-(

    I just bought some last week... It is still made.
    Plenty more on the shelf.
    It is a Mestek product. The only thing they have changed is the color.
    Went to a pure white from off-white.
    FW webb is mostly in New England.

    I think Webb has online ordering, you should be able to have it shipped, depending if you need long cover pieces. I think UPS will go to 7’ long

    It is Sterling Kom Pak and is still made. A Mestek product as others mentioned.


    Sterling Rep n Colorado is McCoy Sales, 1-720-572-1517. I am sure they can put you in touch with a wholesaler.
