In 2003 we merged with the Fenix Group of companies and today are one of 13 companies under their banner with production facilities in the UK, France, Spain and the Czech Republic.
The Group is now one of the largest and most influential organisations involved in the manufacture and marketing of large surface area radiant heating.
Radiant heating (also known as far infrared heating) is utilised by all our heating products. This system heats the objects in the room, rather than the air. This creates a comfortable, even heat throughout the area and also reduces drafts. Electric underfloor heating is a highly efficient, low-cost way to heat your home. Contact Flexel to find out more.
All Flexel electrical heating elements and cable systems are approved to relevant international standards - EN 60335-2-96 for ECOFILM element and IEC 60800 for ECOFLOOR cable mats and all loose cable products. In the UK the standard products described in this website are available ex-stock via our distributor network or to order through the national builders/plumbers merchants and electrical wholesalers networks. Some products can now also be purchased directly via this site.
We pride ourselves in the high level of technical support and customer service we provide and are recognised as an authoritative brand leader in the field of electric radiant heating for domestic and commercial applications. Flexel have been designing and manufacturing innovative electric heating systems since 1978 from our UK based factory in Glenrothes, so you can be confident that everything meets the most stringent UK and EU wiring regulations. With over 40 years of manufacturing and constant product review we have the experience needed to develop a system that meets your own individual needs.
At the core of our Far Infrared technology is our carbon loaded resin used in the manufacture of our heating element. Continuous research and development has resulted in a thin-film heating element with a proven history of performance and longevity. Our carbon heating element provides even heat distribution, damage toleration and a thermal efficiency significantly higher than any other cable or wire based products.
At Flexel we work closely with our network of approved distributors. These distributors are spread all over the UK, ensuring that you will be able to buy Flexel electric heating products wherever you are in the country.
