  • Suitable for bathrooms – With robust IPX4 protection ratings, Ecostrad designer radiators are completely splashproof and can be fitted in zones 2 or 3 of any bathroom, making our designer range the ultimate dual-purpose heater.

Fast-Flo technology

Using a specially engineered thermal fluid contained entirely within the radiator body, our radiators benefit from increased efficiency. The implementation of unique Fast-Flo technology means the optimised build of the radiator, paired with a highly efficient glycol solution, ensures a superior product.

  • Dual heat transfer – Heating through a combination of convection and radiation, our designer range delivers responsive heat capable of heating draught-prone and open plan spaces.
  • Even spread of warmth – With improved heat dispersion, the thermal fluid reaches every part of the radiator to ensure there’s no risk of overheating and the radiator cutting out as a result.
  • Long-lasting warmth – The superior heat-retentive properties benefit the user long after switch-off, ensuring rooms stay warmer for longer.
  • Frost protection – The glycol solution used in our radiators contains antifreeze – this adds an automatic safeguard to the unit when temperatures drop over winter.
Ecostrad iQ WiFi Element

All Ecostrad designer radiators are fitted with this highly advanced, WiFi-compatible heating element. The element comes separately from the radiator and must be fitted by a qualified electrician – a quick and effortless job.

  • Discreet oval design – The element sports a stylish, universal design with a finish that integrates seamlessly with the radiator body.
  • Touchscreen interface – The touchscreen control dial features a backlit LCD display, with no protruding buttons to take away from the element’s seamless design.
  • Precision thermostat – For precise heat management, the thermostat can be set to a specified temperature which will be adhered to ±0.5°C without fluctuation.

Smart control

Connecting the Ecostrad iQ heating element to WiFi gives users access to an unrivalled heat management system.

  • WiFi app control – With the Ecostrad Ecosystem app, Ecostrad radiators can be linked to a single point of use and programmed from the palm of your hand. Remote access is particularly useful for property lets, holiday homes or businesses that aren’t used for personal heating.
Energy-saving features

In order to streamline energy usage, Ecostrad designer radiators come with a wealth of features that can be customised to the minute or set to a more set-and-forget approach. These energy-saving features not only make for a more efficient product, they’re a way to slim down running costs and make significant savings on your heating.

  • 24/7 programming – Set up a personalised schedule to match routines and property footfall. With electric, radiators can be programmed on a room-by-room basis to drastically cut down on energy waste.
  • Comfort, Eco & Frost modes – Select Comfort or Eco mode for hourly intervals of constant, low-temperature heating, or Anti-Frost mode when temperatures drop – particularly useful in lets that may remain vacant over winter.
  • 0-8 Hour Timer – Between a temperature range of 30-70°C, Ecostrad designer radiators can be left running for a specified amount of time before switching to standby mode.
  • Open window detection – If the temperature drops more than 2°C in a 5-minute period, the element will switch to its Anti-Frost mode to avoid excess heat loss.
  • Adaptive start – Pre-heating the radiator ahead of schedule, rooms are optimally heated at the specific time set, removing the need for heating boosts.
