Stiebel Eltron panel heaters combine high performance and control for Unite Students

Stiebel Eltron has been selected by leading student accommodation developer Unite Students to provide panel heaters across its high-profile development portfolio.

The developments, located at throughout the UK and including major sites such as Skelhorne Street in Liverpool and Battery Park in Birmingham, will provide more than 1,500 units of industry-leading student accommodation.


The CNS-NC panel heater provides estates managers with unprecedented control through its innovative “slave control” feature, which sees the units controlled remotely to minimise the costs incurred by students heating their rooms.

Mark McManus, managing director of Stiebel Eltron UK said: “Working with a high-profile developer like Unite Students is a huge vote of confidence in not only the quality of our home comforts range, but also its versatility.


“We’ve seen success in providing variations of this range to PRS developers and took the decision to diversify our offering with the no control option, which is tailored to the student accommodation market.

“We recognise the challenges that universities and estates managers face in providing high-spec developments that are energy efficient and minimise costs incurred by overuse. It’s this thinking that led to the development of the no control option, and to have Unite Students on board with the idea is a fantastic endorsement of the technology.”


Michael Colwill, development procurement & specification manager at Unite Students, added: “The demands of large-scale high-density student accommodation are unique, and it requires a strong partnership and product range to strike the right balance between efficiency and control.


“We believe we have found that with Stiebel Eltron. The units themselves are of high-quality, with well-designed space-saving housing, and provide industry-leading efficiency alongside the benefits of giving full control to estates managers.”
