Material

Steel offers the lowest price tag compared to other materials, but it also offers the most diversity in terms of colour and style. Steel is malleable which allows radiators to be efficient because they can be physically designed to better pass heat from the water inside to the space around them (this is a radiator's job after all, despite some thinking that its job is to “store” heat). The heat output is also good, the proof is in the pudding with this one - would steel be the most common radiator material if the heat output was rubbish? Steel is a highly durable material which is important as radiators are going to be the victims of some knocks and bangs over time and you want them to withstand that.

Columns

“Column” refers to the style of radiator but when there is a number in in front of this – e.g. “2 Column”, we’re talking about the structure of the radiator itself. Column radiator sections are made from vertical tubes which are connected at the top and bottom, the number comes from the how many vertical tubes there are in these sections. A 2 column radiator has 2 vertical tubes, a 3 column has 3 and so on. 2 column (sometimes known as double column) is the slimmest type of column radiator on the market. The heat output of a 2 column radiator is less than the larger, 3, 4 or 6 variants of column radiators. But that doesn’t mean to say they won’t warm up the room - especially small rooms which their slim styles are predominantly designed for.

Colour

Anthracite is a high-end variety of coal noted for the purity of its carbon and the dark grey smoke it emits when burning. It’s also one of our customers’ most popular picks for a modern-looking radiator that looks as good as it functions. The smoky matt finish you achieve with this colour is quite unlike any other and produces a stylish effect with even the most minimalist design. As we become more conscious of our surroundings, tastes shift from the functional and the merely decorative to something combining qualities of both, and anthracite radiators certainly tick all of the boxes.

Heat Source

A central heating or hot water radiator is one that is plumbed into your homes central heating system. Whether you have a Combi boiler, gravity fed (conventional) system or a system with a cylinder, you can install this radiator.

Accessories

This radiator has G1/2” connections either side at the bottom and so the valves required will depend on your pipework (which is why they aren’t provided with the radiator):

  • For pipework coming from the wall to the side of the radiator, use corner valves.
  • For pipework coming from the floor and up to the side of the radiator, use angled valves.
  • For pipework coming along the wall to meet the side of the radiator, use straight valves.

This radiator is provided with wall mounting brackets and column radiator feet are not a requirement. However, if you want to emphasize traditional style then we definitely recommend purchasing some colour matching feet. The feet can be used along with the wall brackets to help carry some of the weight of the radiator. Alternatively, don’t use the wall brackets provided and instead purchase some wall stays in either a matching or contrasting colour!

There are a few different types of valves available for you to choose from: Manual Valves provide easy on/off control – simply turn the valve by hand to allow the water from your central heating to pass through into the radiator or towel rail, just like a tap! If this radiator is going to be in the same room as your main boiler thermostat (usually a little box on the wall or the mantle, that you turn up and down) then we advise you to use manual valves over TRV’s because a TRV will conflict with your boiler thermostat and can cause temperature issues around the home.
Thermostatic Valves (TRVs) provide multi temperature control of the radiators in your home – saving energy and money! These valves have sensor mechanisms inside that shut off the flow of hot water to the radiator when the room temperature reached the desired level! If your looking to reduce your carbon footprint while remaining cosy warm, then TRV’s are the way to go (provided they aren’t installed in the room where your main boiler thermostat is).

Carole P

love this stylish column radiator. Gives out so much more heat than the standard type of radiator. great service. thank you

Paul H

Great look, good quality and good heat output, although not used in earnest yet (only Oct) Easy to mount by fixing lower brackets first then marking top brackets on the wall. Look great with antique brass valves in our Victorian house.

All looks good, prior to installation.

There was a skuff to the paintwork on one of the radiator pipes at the top, but luckily this will be not visible if the radiator is hung the other way up.

Very smart, with what appears to be a very good quality finish. I've now fitted 5 of these HB Signature Alpha anthracite rads and they all work with no leaks or quality issues - highly recommended (please excuse lack of skirting board in below pic!)
