Is a column radiator right for you?

Why choose column radiators?

Column radiators boast a whole host of benefits for your home. From exceptional performance to classic design, there’s more than one reason to choose a column radiator. These traditional radiators would make fantastic and reliable additions to any home heating system. Don’t be fooled by their old-school looks - these radiators are powered by industry-leading technology and produced using only the best, long-lasting materials.

Classic design

Column radiators give any space an air of sophistication and class. The timeless design of column radiators is perfect for complementing virtually any design style. If you’re after a vintage look then a column radiator will blend seamlessly with your existing decor, and if your style is more minimal, then a column radiator would make a fabulous statement piece in your home.

Power and performance

One of the most well known benefits of column radiators is their unbeatable heating power. No matter how big your space, a column radiator will be able to keep it toasty and warm. And our collection is available in 2, 3 or 4 column models to suit your heating needs. And if you’re lost on what heat output you need to heat your space, check out our BTU calculator. Perfect for rooms with high ceilings and large floor spaces, column radiators have the power to heat a range of different rooms. This makes them versatile and ideal for almost every room - from hallways to kitchens, living rooms and more.

Versatile design options

When you think about column radiators, you may only be able to picture one style - the classic white, heavy set column rad. However, the truth is, with today’s design advancements, you have unparalleled choice when choosing your radiator. Our range of column radiators come in a variety of colour options, including: And it’s not just the colour you can choose from - you’ll find column radiators with different finishes, column shapes and sizes to suit your space. Take a look at our range here.

Durable quality you can trust

Manufactured from highly durable materials such as steel and cast iron, column radiators are built to last. Cast iron and steel are also so long-lasting due to their sheer weight. And with the best anti-corrosion and anti-rusting technology incorporated into every piece, column radiators are a great fit for any home. With leak-free designs to eliminate the possibility of corrosion, and reliable structures, you can trust your column radiator to outlast even the coldest winter.

What are the best column radiators?

With so many to choose from, it can be difficult to settle on just one column radiator. Not to toot our own horn, but our team at UK Radiators know a thing or two about radiators. And the best column radiators are the ones that fulfil your exact requirements and tastes. That’s why we stock such an extensive range of them. Depending on your heating needs, the right fit for you will lie in choosing the right category of column radiators. So we’ve rounded up the best of the best in column radiators depending on their type.

Traditional column radiators

traditional column radiator The traditional column radiator, as covered above, provides timeless style and exceptional heating for any space. Styles such as the Alpha White Column Radiator beautifully complement any home decor style whilst providing impressive heat outputs to keep your home feeling as warm as it looks.

Vertical column radiators

Whilst traditional column radiators can be quite sizeable, you can still find the perfect column radiator if you have limited wall space. Vertical column radiators are perfect for fitting in slim wall spaces that you wouldn’t usually get to use. So even if your room is dominated by other furnishings, a vertical column radiator like the Alpha column radiator subtly makes the most of your wall space without overcrowding your room.

Designer column radiators

If you want the heat-boosting benefits of a column radiator without the old-school look, then a designer column radiator is exactly what you need. Providing the unparalleled performance of a column radiator packaged in a much more sleek, updated design, designer column radiators do it all. A model such as the Sherwood Round Top Column Radiator provides the modern finish you’re looking for in a column radiator - now that’s what we call the best of both worlds.

Horizontal column radiators

Similar to the benefits of vertical radiators, horizontal column radiators help you to really make the most of your wall space. Models such as the Alpha Horizontal Column Radiator can fit neatly underneath window sills and tables, plus boast the extra benefit of not having to redo your piping when replacing your old radiator.

What you need to know about column radiators

Whether the column radiator has won you over already, or you still need some extra information, you can find some miscellaneous details about column radiator maintenance here. Below are a few often asked questions about the upkeep of column radiators. To make the right decision about your radiator, you need to be as informed as possible, including what happens beyond your initial purchase.

How to clean column radiators

Let’s face it, radiators often get forgotten once installed in your home. But just because they’re not interacted with as much as other home fittings such as worktops and tables, doesn’t mean they don’t need a clean every now and then too. Column radiators can be slightly more tricky to clean than their panel counterparts due to the unique column shape of them. However, this isn’t to say you can’t still maintain them with relative ease.

How to paint behind column radiators

Painting behind wall fittings such as shelves and radiators can be a tricky job. More often than not, taking the time and effort to turn off, cool and remove column radiators from the wall simply to paint behind them is more hassle than it’s worth. Whilst that is the safest way to paint behind column radiators, we understand how long-winded this option can be. Your other option is to very carefully paint behind your radiator using a specially designed paintbrush that has a long handle and thin bristles that won’t get paint on your radiator, or even make your own. So now you have all the information you need, the only thing left to do is have a look for your perfect column radiator. Happy shopping! If you need any advice or assistance, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team, we’d be happy to help.
