Normally, radiators are controlled by Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRV's), which tend to be less effective and less reliable than electronic room thermostats and programmable thermostats.

Using manifold radiator connection, the radiator is'known as' on or off by the thermostat which closes or opens the manifold actuators. Connection allows every room to have its very own thermostat, delivering the relaxation.

Additionally, it suggests that in rooms where you might need it colder or warmer at different times of the day you may use a programmable thermostat. The manifold system is effective used with radiators or using a combination of underfloor heating and radiators system.

Additional information is found in the Underfloor heating section. When using a radiator manifold system there is the choice of using either wired or radio thermostats, in conjunction with actuators along with a wiring centre to offer accurate temperature control.

Further advice is found in the Air Temperature Controls section. Maincor's smart Neo atmosphere temperature control system also means that you'll be able to communicate remotely with the construction and alter the climate, room by room if needed.

Employing a manifold system has the extra benefit of allowing for human isolation of radiators in the event of an issue. Each and every radiator at the construction has its own circuit of pipework, just attached in the manifold and the radiator. In the event of a leak or if maintenance is needed, that radiator could be turned off at the rest of the building heating system left functional and the manifold

The benefits of Radiator Manifold Systems?

  • Improved Comfort Levels - Better temperature control.
  • More Efficient Use of Energy - Reduces cost.
  • No Joints Within the Building Fabric - Without joints in the pipework, the chance of leaks is greatly reduced.
  • Less Joints also means Quicker Installation - More efficient on time and costs.
  • Easy Radiator Isolation - Manifolds are to plumbing what the consumer box is to electrics.

Technical Details:

Locating and Mounting Radiator Manifolds:

If at all possible, manifolds must be located centrally in the construction. It's important to ensure that there is good access for maintenance or in the event of a problem. Under stairs good locations would be in situations, or in the back of a kitchen cabinet, or. If there's a necessity to hide them away, then Manifolds could be found inside walls supporting an access driveway, or inside a dedicated cabinet. Maincor Radiator manifolds are mounted using the preassembled metal brackets supplied.

Locating Thermostats for Radiator Manifold Systems:

Thermostats function by sensing the atmosphere temperature therefore it is important to guarantee they are situated at a position that is representative of the space overall. Avoid the following:

  • Location in room corners
  • Behind furniture units
  • Behind curtains
  • Close to heat generating devices such as TVs, computer equipment, wall lights
  • In direct sunlight
  • On outside walls
  • In the line of draughts

Installation Overview:

Site Requirements:

Before starting to install radiator manifold systems the
working area should be prepared:

  • The area should ideally be weather tight. Ensure that manifolds and electrical components are sufficiently protected from wet weather.
  • Site specific PPE should be available.

For filling and commissioning access will be required to mains
water pressure and 230V mains electricity.

Health and Safety:

When installing heating systems Guarantee that all health and safety Laws and Website regulations are fully adhered to at all times.
