One of our most popular radiator designs, steel column radiators are extremely versatile and can be highly customised to achieve the desired look to match your interior.
For instance they can be ordered with cast feet and in a textured, hammered finish to give a look very similar to old cast iron radiators. Alternatively, for a more modern look, they can be supplied wall mounted and in a bare metal lacquer finish which shows off all the tooling marks that go in to making these stunning radiators. The possibilities truly are endless!
We are able to offer a large number of our column radiators from stock in white, anthracite or bare metal lacquer finish for quick delivery. These include both vertical and horizontal models, in heights from 300mm to 1800mm, and widths from 484mm to 1864mm. Our stock range includes 2, 3 & 4 column deep radiators.
If one of our extensive stock sizes doesn't suit, we can offer our made to order column radiators in 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 columns deep, with heights anywhere from only 200mm high up to 2500mm high, and widths from only 249mm wide up to over 3000mm wide!
Mounting options include wall brackets, cast feet, slip on feet or welded on feet. Connections are 1/2" as standard (3/4" & 1' also available).
Our column radiators are available in a huge range of sizes and outputs. As a general rule of thumb when comparing a column radiator to a standard panel radiator, a 2 column is similar in heat output to a single panel, single fin/convector radiator, a 3 column to a double panel single fin/convector radiator and a 4 column to a double panel, double fin/convector radiator.
When shopping for a new radiator, it's very important that you understand a term called 'Delta T', as its the single biggest factor in determining if a radiator will sufficiently heat your room.
Delta T500C is the industry standard for domestic homes and is the European recognized standard for calculating heat outputs to EN442. This typically assumes a boiler flow temperature of 750C, a return of 650C and a room temperature of 200C. All of our radiator heat outputs are listed at Delta T500C.
Some retailers will advertise their radiator heat outputs at Delta T600C (and sometimes even higher!) which typically assumes a boiler flow temperature of 850C, a return of 750C and a room temperature of 200C. This is simply not achievable for most domestic boilers and will therefore result in the radiator being undersized for your room. A heat output listed at Delta T600C needs to be multiplied by 0.79 to convert it to Delta T500C, so as to make the heat output that can be achieved more accurate.
Colours & Finishes
We have a huge range of colours and finishes available on our radiators, including over 200 RAL colours, textured finishes, matt finishes, tinted lacquers and much more.
All of these can be viewed at our Newtownards showroom, allowing you to see first hand what your new radiator would look like.
The valve connections on our column radiators are normally 'side' connections as standard, although it is possible to have them supplied with 'underneath' connections if required, particularly on the vertical models if wall space is limited and you don't have room for valves out the side. Our experienced sales team can advise you further on this and also provide 'pipe centre' dimensions to allow your plumber to 'first fix' the pipework in advance of the radiator being delivered.
All valve connections our our radiators are standard 1/2" BSP fitment. We can supply some of our radiators with larger 3/4" connections if required, for instance on commercial projects when a higher output and flow rate is required.
