BEAMS is the latest innovative radiator from Belgian manufacturer VASCO. Just in time to keep us warm during the long winter months, BEAMS is already the recipient of several important awards. It was first shown as a prototype last year and, as a result, picked up the Henry van de Velde Label for 2012 and also the OVAM Ecodesign Award from the Public Waste Agency of Flanders for its ecological and innovative aspects.
The BEAMS aluminium radiator has become the instant flagship of the new generation of sustainable radiators suitable for low temperature regimes.
BEAMS is not only a pleasure to look at, it also excels at energy efficiency. For example, BEAMS only contains 2 litres of water instead of the usual 10 litres, so it gets to the required temperature faster. In addition, the water sits in the core, so it is completely safe for small children to touch. The heat is given off three to four times faster compared to traditional radiators and there is no heat loss through the wall, thanks to the optimal positioning of the convection fins at the back. The system was developed in co-operation with the University of Stuttgart in Germany and provides a 15% saving in energy.
