Don't be left out in the cold this winter - install Type 21 double panel radiators in your home to stay toasty and warm.

What Are Type 21 Radiators?

Type 21 radiators are one of the most common types of radiators in the UK so you're most likely already familiar with them. They consist of two radiator panels with one row of fins in between. They usually come with a grill and side panels that clip onto the radiator for a seamless finish and are some of the most affordable options you can buy. They're the perfect radiators for when you need a highly efficient and effective heater that won't take up too much space.

Why Choose Type 21 Radiators?

Thanks to their steel construction, Type 21 double panel radiators are some of the most durable and reliable on the market. Steel has been used for radiators for decades due to its ability to conduct heat really well and its hardwearing, durable quality - offering you a reliable and affordable heating solution for your home.

Type 21 radiators are available in many different sizes and widths so can be fitted in any space but are ideal for use beneath windows to utilise dead space. The row of fins inside these radiators is the reason they're so effective - they help to increase the amount of heat the radiator throws out into the room.

Pair with a traditional thermostatic radiator valve for even more efficient heating for your home and protection from frost.
