Why settle for a basic white panel radiator for your newly decorated room? We have a massive range of decorative horizontal radiators available which are sure to add the finishing touch to any room.
We are able to supply a large number of our horizontal radiators from stock in white or anthracite finish for quick delivery. If your chosen radiator style isn't available in a stock size that is suitable for your room, we also have a made to order option available on virtually all of our radiators, so you can be sure you will get the radiator you want in a size that fits.
Much like conventional radiators, horizontal radiators are available in single or double panels depending on the level of heat output you require. Oftentimes the same bracket is used for both the single or double version, so may not always mean the projection from the wall is any less for a single than a double panel. In these instances, we feel it is better to go for a double over a single, and reduce the overall width or height of the radiator.
Horizontal radiators can be made from a range of materials including steel, aluminium, stainless steel or cast iron. Each material offers its own benefits in terms of overall heating performance. Our experienced sales team are able to advise you on the best radiator for your project, be it an eco-friendly new build or refurbishment of an old cottage.
As with all types of radiator, some designs of horizontal radiator give a higher heat output than others. Typically an oval or round tube design will give more heat than a flat panel design. Some of our highest output horizontal radiators are the Vulcano and Cubed, which have incredible outputs up to 12,000 BTUs!
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 give 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 horizontal radiators will either be 'side' or 'underneath' connections depending on the model of radiator you choose. Generally speaking, if the tubes/panels run up/down (portrait) then the connections will most likely be 'side' (much like a standard panel radiator). If the tubes/panels run left/right (landscape) then the connections are usually 'underneath'. 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.
