    High Duty Basebaord

    I'm not familiar with that brand, but several manufacturers offer heavy duty or high output variants.  The length limit for a 3/4" circuit would depend on the flow, which would in turn depend on the ∆T for the loop.

    Typically...

    40,000 btu on 3/4" copper. So if normal baseboard is around 600 btu/ ft that is around 66/67Ft.
    You could go more but your output will not be 600/ foot after the 67'.
    Typically high output is 750/ ft. (ie.. Sterling Senior)
    That puts you in the 53' range on 3/4" copper

    Beware

    of the disclaimer that  "this includes a 15% heating effect factor " ,. this is a fictitious number that should be subtracted , making 600 per foot actually 510 per . 
    You didn't get what you didn't pay for and it will never be what you thought it would
