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. “4 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. Typically, 4 column radiators are used where high heat output is needed such as hallways, kitchens and living rooms. If you’re lucky enough to own a gorgeous period property with large, tall rooms then 4 column radiators will likely be the best option for you. Despite these column radiators being a little bulkier than 2 or 3 column radiators, their heat output is superb and their attractive design can often be used as a focal point or a statement in any room.

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).

Watts & BTUs (British Thermal Units) Explained

What is a Watt?

Watts are our main unit of energy/power in the UK, commonly associated with lightbulbs and Home Energy performance certificates (EPCs).

What is a BTU?

BTUs are the unit of measurement used to portray a radiators heat output and a rooms heating requirement. 1 Watt is equal to 3.41 BTUs.

Why are they important?

We buy radiators to heat our homes, right? So, we need a way of knowing if a radiator is powerful enough to heat the room that we are shopping for - Watts and BTUs provide us with a value that makes its easier to compare radiators and ultimately choose the right one for our heating requirement.

Need help figuring out how much heat your room needs?

Our fast and easy-to-use BTU calculator can help you:

  • Work out a heating requirement value (in BTUs & Watts) for your room
  • Show you in-stock radiator recommendations that can fulfil this heat requirement

Delta (Δ) Ratings Explained

What is a Delta (Δ) Rating?

When discussing heat outputs, the Delta rating is the difference between the temperature of the water inside the heating system and the desired temperature of the room.

What does the value represent?

In simple terms, this value is about heat loss. Heating a room only works, if the radiator output exceeds the heat loss of the room.

We use this calculation to make it easy to choose a radiator that will have a heat output that exceeds the heat loss of the room when connected to your heating system type.

If you don't know the room heat loss, you can use our calculator to find out.

What Delta Rating should I use?

  • Δ50 = Gas or oil boiler with a flow temperature of around 75°C and a return temperature of around 65°C.
  • Δ30 = Low temperature systems e.g heat pumps.
