Now that Easter is passed, we are hitting the ground running with April. Here are the three most important news stories from March 2018 here at Hudevad Radiators - just so you're fully updated yet again.

1. Environments on
After a long time in the works, we are finally ready to show you our website environments. Three are up an running right now and three more are being developed you read this. The environments are a knowledge base of topics relevant to the specific project category so that if you are designing, building or specifying a school, you'll have the most important knowledge and need-to-know issues about heating educational facilities gathered in one place - for example. Because Education is only one of our environments. The two others, that are currently live, are Healthcare and Office spaces. Take a look.

3. How to corrosion protect your radiator - the short explanation 

We've had several questions regarding correct corrosion protection for steel radiators and how big a role the environment, in which it is installed, plays. Here's a short explanation including when to use extra corrosion protection such as E-coat. You can read the full article here.

The surface of a standard radiator or convector is protected against corrosion under 'normal' instalment circumstances, which are described in the EN442-1 standard. The environment the radiators and convectors are exposed to can be classified as follows: C1, C2, C3, C4

The corrosion strain from the outdoor climate can be further worsened by the intended use of the building and the strains that could follow. These should also be considered when buying a radiator. Such uses could, for example, be wetrooms, indoor swimming pools with chloride filled water, horse stables and other buildings with special purposes.  Furthermore, colder areas on constructions can be exposed to higher corrosion strains when condensation occurs.

In the table below you can get a quick overview of the corrosion protection categories. If in doubt, you can always contact our support team here.
