- Sometimes refered to as K1 or Single Panel, Single Convector radiators.

The Panel is the front, ribbed facing of the radiator where the water channels are.
The Convector is the part behind the panel, or between the panels that is the sheet metal zig zaging which helps draw the cold air up from below, heating it as it rises.
