Our cast iron radiators are split into broad groups - Column Radiators, Old School Radiators and Decorative Radiators - within these groups there are families of cast iron radiators.
- Column Radiators generally represent the best value for money, have a relatively high surface area resulting in a relatively high heat output and are available in a very wide variety of heat outputs, heights and several different traditional styles.
- Old School Radiators feature large bulky sections which make them a great choice for polishing; they were traditionally used in public buildings (hence the name) because they are easy to clean and look great in virtually any location. There tends to be few height options with old school radiators making them not suitable for some houses.
- Decorative Radiators feature intricate and ornate casting details in a wide range of styles. Decorative Cast Iron Radiators were traditionally placed in halls, living rooms and rooms for entertaining.
Further to these choices we have developed a series of European castings which benefit from a 25 year guarantee. We have also grouped our Cast Iron Radiators into Families of Cast Iron Radiators for those who are thinking about combining decorative and non decorative cast iron radiators.
