Standard Construction Features

Heating Elements

Industrial grade stainless steel tubular elements in 2-10 KW units and steel finned tubular elements in 15-60 KW units.

Housing

Cabinet is constructed of 18 and 20-gauge galvanized steel finished with durable almond polyester powder paint.

Outlet Grille

The outlet grille has individually adjustable louvers to direct airflow. A protective outlet mesh screen, provided on 2-30 KW heaters, allows for lower mounting heights.

Fan Motor

Totally enclosed, thermally protected motor with factory-lubricated ball bearings (except for 15 to 25 kW at 208/240V) operates at 58 dBA (2-10 kW), 67 dBA (15-30 kW) or 77 dBA (40-60 kW). Blow-through design reduces motor operating temperature for longer life.
