Trench heating systems are typically installed along the baseboards or walls of a room, particularly in areas with high heat loss. 

Linear troughs provide high-capacity airflow without restricting underfloor volume and are available as perimeter heating+cooling / heating-only / cooling-only systems. Drip-proof construction provides protection for electrical components, while optional threaded leveling legs allow height adjustment. The housing is 20 gauge galvanized and painted steel construction. These troughs are silent and require little to none of the maintenance of a fan. They are particularly effective in rooms with large windows or areas prone to cold drafts.

This addition, featuring a factory-installed hot water coil valve package, not only streamlines the installation process but also upholds the consistent and reliable quality that you've come to associate with AirFixture. The flexibility in control options and valve package configurations further accelerates construction time.

I’m always worried about trying something radically different in our projects. What if it doesn’t go to plan? What if there’s something we haven’t considered? Those concerns were completely unfounded with UFAD. it was far less complex, and way easier to plan and install than a traditional system.

Trench Heating FAQs


Raise Occupant Satisfaction Rates With Improved Thermal Comfort

You can place SoHo trench radiators around each room’s perimeter. This will offer even heating and virtually eliminate all draft, keeping your occupants comfortable in all areas.

You can also get trench heating grilles available in ten (10) standard colors; customized colors and finishes can be provided to match architectural design.


Remove Harmful

Dust, pollen, smoke, and other toxic substances can cause major health problems. Because a trench system will deliver a gentle and continuous airflow, contaminants aren’t unduly disturbed, allowing them to settle much easier.


Increase Floor Space
& Boost Aesthetic Appeal

With our recessed trench heating units, you will free floor space by removing radiators from the walls and, instead, place them under the floor. 

You can also get trench heating grilles in many different finishes and styles, which you can then match to your unique decor and boost your building’s visual appeal.
