The Definitive Guide to Jaga’s Trench Radiators

Jaga is a Belgium-based company that manufactures innovative, energy efficient radiators and fan coils. Some of Jaga’s most popular products are of an in-floor, trench design. Performance of these units is surprisingly high due to same end water connections that allow for multiple passes through the heat exchanger, built-in fans to assist convection, and corrugated fins. Jaga’s four trench models are the Mini Canal, Micro Canal, Clima Canal, and Quatro Canal.

Mini Canal (optional DBE fan)

Mini Canal DBE

The Mini Canal is the first trench radiator that Jaga produced.  The most versatile in size options, it is available up to 193″ L, 7.5″ H, and 16.5″ W.

Micro Canal

  • Application: Two Pipe, Heating Only
  • Fan: ECM tangential fan, constant speed
  • Electrical Requirements: 24vdc
  • Watt Consumption: 1.3W to 3.7W depending upon size
  • Sound Pressure: 18dB to 25dB depending upon size
  • Grille Options: Stainless Steel

The Micro Canal is Jaga’s most compact trench radiator.  Height is adjustable from 2.44″ to 3.15″, and the width is only 5.12″.

Clima Canal

  • Application: Two Pipe, Heating and Cooling
  • Fan: ECM tangential fan, variable speed
  • Electrical Requirements: 24vdc power supply, 0-10vdc to modulate fan
  • Watt Consumption: 4.37W to 12.1W at max speed, depending upon size
  • Sound Pressure: 34dB to 40dB at max speed, depending upon size
  • Grille Options: Aluminum or Wood

The Clima Canal is suitable for systems with changeover between heating and cooling throughout all zones. Height is adjustable from 3.94″ to 4.25″, and width is 7.09″. A drain pan is built in to remove condensation.

Quatro Canal

  • Application: Four Pipe, Heating and Cooling
  • Fan: ECM tangential fan, variable speed
  • Electrical Requirements: 24vdc power supply, 0-10vdc to modulate fan
  • Watt Consumption: 3.5W to 10W at max speed, depending upon size
  • Sound Pressure: 30dB to 33.5dB at max speed, depending upon size
  • Grille Options: Aluminum

The Quatro Canal is almost identical to the Clima Canal except that it is a four pipe design.  This means a larger trench, but it allows maximum flexibility for different zones to be in heating and cooling at the same time. Height is adjustable from 5.12″ to 6.69″, and width is 10.63″.
