A typical design range is 250 to 330 Btu/(hr • sqft).

Following are the recommended radiation levels:

  • For equipment protection: 5000 Btu/(hr • sq ft)
  • Personnel, few seconds escape only: 3000 Btu/(hr • sq ft)
  • Personnel, one minute exposure: 2000 Btu/(hr • sq ft)
  • Personnel, several minutes short exposure: 1500 Btu/(hr • sq ft)
  • Personnel, continuous exposure: 500 Btu/(hr • sq ft)

Note: These do not include solar heat.
