The King heavy KCF cabinet heater can be placed almost anywhere. Typical uses are hall or entryways where a deep cabinet heater would be too intrusive. The slim design is great for schools, office, air terminals, auditoriums, apartments, restaurants, churches, factory’s, theaters and other locations where a clean impact resistant 18 gauge construction and entry way or comfort heating is needed. The KCF uses the time tested ceramic core heating elements that King developed over 50 years ago and have a very long life. Available in a slim 4”surface mount or the recess in wall installation. A sub-base is available when installing close to the floor to fill the gap. Thermostats, Contactors and Disconnect switches are available as options. Textured powder coated finish in an almond color. KCF model adds quiet tangential fans in the bottom of the cabinet to help move the heated air out of the cabinet. KCF model is not for residential use unless you add the Manual reset limit option.
Impact Resistant and Reliable
Built to withstand years of high-traffic, with time-tested ceramic core heating elements that King developed over 50 years ago and have a very long life.
Now That’s Smart!
The Fan Circulates Warm Air Throughout The Room
The KCF model adds a quiet tangential fans in the bottom of the cabinet to help move the heated air out of the cabinet and circulate it into the room.

Contractor shall supply and install KCF Series cabinet heaters manufactured by King Electrical Mfg. Company. Heaters shall be of the wattage and voltage as indicated on the plans.
Construction: Heaters shall be constructed in 18 gauge galvanized Steel with epoxy powder-coated manufacturer’s standard finish. A louvered front cover with intake and outlet grille will protect element area and provide ample air flow to dissipate heated air.
Element: The superior performance comes from the proven technology of the ceramic thermal storage heater core. A 7/8″ diameter aluminum tube is filled with a special high density ceramic that stores the thermal energy. The oversized fins (4.875 in2) are made from durable (0.015″thick) high grade aluminum which produces better heat transfer than other elements. The benefit of the technology comes when the thermostat is turned off and the element continues to radiate heat. It also reduces temperature swings by heating and cooling more evenly. A fired refractory ceramic core with two large diameter Nickel Chromium coils attached with high temperature stainless connectors and stranded Nickel wire, terminated in a junctionbox.
Controls: A built-in thermal cutout shall automatically shut off the heater in case of overheating. A built-in thermostat for temperature control will have a range from 40°- 95°F and be of the high accuracy capillary tube-type. Disconnect switch and contactors will be provided if necessary.
Blower and Motor: Up to 3 tangential cylindrical blowers, delivering 70 CFM each, shall be driven by a shaded pole, permanently lubricated, C-frame type motor with impedance protection and sealed bearings. Motors shall be the same voltage as the heater. All 480V units use 277V motors and contactors. This requires a neutral connection.
