The EFW - Electric Frengerwarm™ Radiant Heating Panels, part of Frenger's wider energy-efficient Electric Radiant Heating solutions range, is an unobtrusive radiant heating panel designed to be integrated within a standard 24mm exposed grid ceiling system.
The panel is manufactured from 1.0mm thick steel with a pre painted tough Precoat finish, equivalent to RAL 9016 (white) as standard, with other RAL colours available on request.
The electric version of the Frengerwarm Radiant Heating Panel supplies gentle, even, and comfortable heat in various applications. The heaters can be used to provide general heating, or to raise temperature in certain areas (spot heating).
As the EFW electric panel uses radiant heat, the heat is concentrated in the occupied area thus minimising energy losses through stratification of heated air.
The EFW electric panels have been specifically developed for use in schools and healthcare environments where a smooth-faced simple-to-install panel with a high heating capacity is the preferred solution.

- Smooth-faced, unobtrusive design.
- Pre coat finished white, equivalent to RAL 9016 20% gloss (±5%)
EFW - Electric Frengerwarm™ Design
The Electric Frengerwarm™ Panels consists of a heating coil encased in a white painted steel panel. With an output of approximately 830W/m2, the EFW panels are one of the most efficient smooth-faced radiant heating panels currently available.
Dimensions: EFW panels are available in three widths, as standard - 0.3m, 0.6m, and 0.9m. These nominal dimensions are reduced by 8mm on length and width so that the panels can be integrated within a traditional suspended ceiling using exposed T-bars (24mm wide) on a 600 x 600mm grid module. The depth of the panel is just 45mm.
Lengths: EFW panels are produced in nominal module lengths of 0.6m, 1.2m, 1.8m, 2.4m, and 3.0m as standard; non-standard lengths are available upon request.
Surface finish: EFW panels are pre-coated White as standard equivalent to RAL 9016, gloss value 20%, emissivity 0.94. As mentioned previously, Frenger also offer all RAL classic colour options to suit any architectural aesthetics upon request.
Colour is useful to create atmosphere within a space, Frenger's EFW Panels provides a unique way to integrate colour into different environments due to offering all RAL colour options.
Considerable research has been done into the effects different colours have on wellbeing with Blue being found to induce calmness and improve concentration, it's mental benefits make it a favourable choice for learning environments such as classrooms, red has been shown to have more physical effects, encouraging activity, yellow is associated with creativity and is ideal for creative workspaces, neutral and cool tones are more suited for healthcare environments but depending on the purpose it can be useful to include colour such as for children's hospital to provide stimulation and help them to understand their surroundings.
EFW - Electric Frengerwarm™ Application
Electric Frengerwarm™ Radiant Heating Panels are particularly suited for use in schools, shops, and offices; in fact, wherever there is a need for a high-output radiant heating panel which is simple to install, easy to keep clean, and comes at a very competitive price.
Ceiling Grid Installation
EFW panels are the perfect solution for integration with an exposed grid ceiling system applications but can also be recessed into a plasterboard ceiling.
EFW - Electric Heating Panel Installation
The EFW panels are designed to be fixed directly back to the structural soffit. Panels are supplied with support brackets which are suitable for suspension using rigid threaded rod systems or suspension cables (supplied by others).
Four hangars are required for each heating panel up to 1.8m long, panels 2.4m long and longer require 6 number hangers (a pair at each end and a pair in the middle).
It should also be remembered that the ceiling system "main runners" must be designed to run either side of the EFW panel and parallel to its long sides. Ceiling system "cross noggin" bayonets must be capable of being bent back so as not to clash with the panel.
EFW - Electric Heating Panel Maintenance
The unit has no moving parts, and therefore maintenance requirement is limited to periodic cleaning of the surface of the panel using warm water applied with a soft cloth then wiped dry.
EFW - Electric Heating Panel Controls
Frenger® can supply their easy-to-install T60-EH controller with a built-in thermostat, which has a full colour touch screen and three programming modes (Weekday / Weekend, Seven Day and a 24-Hour mode).
The controller is suitable for flush mounting, and requires a minimum 35mm deep junction box, recessed into the wall. Please see the T60-EH Installation and User guides in the page downloads section below for more information.
