Order your radiator in six easy steps

1. Confirm your heat output requirements;

Please use our Heat Output Calculator for a quick guide, however we recommend you check outputs with your installer before making a purchase. It is essential that you know how much heat you will need as this will determine the size of your radiators.
 

2. Choose your design;

Our range has everything from traditional cast iron to modern feature radiators (even an environmentally friendly aluminium range), with an extensive choice of sizes, colours and outputs.
 

3. Select a size that matches the heat output requirement;

Outputs are shown in the technical section of each product and will help you and your installer to find the best match for your needs.

4. Choose the colour you want;

With over 230 colours and special finishes you are able to match your colour scheme or introduce an accent colour to create a striking feature. To help choose your colour most products belong to a colour group shown in the overview section of each product e.g. you can also look at all our colour groups within the finishes page where you can see all colours and products available in each group.
 

5. Find a Valve;

To complete the look choose from our wide selection of valves and add any accessories that complement your choice. we recommend using TRV valves in all living and bedrooms to maximise the efficiency of your radiators. Please remember valves will increase the overall width of your radiator unless you select underneath (B2) connections.
 

6. Order from your nearest showroom or merchant;

To find your nearest branch please use our where to buy section.

 

Our Product Range

    • All our radiators are produced and outputs measured in accordance with European standard EN442.
  • Radiators are supplied with BOE connections as standard unless stated otherwise; B2 underneath connections can be supplied with selected models.
  • Due to the excessively corrosive nature of chlorine we do not recommend that radiators and towel rails are placed in swimming pool environments. In addition radiators should not be located in areas that have long term exposure to high levels of moisture.
  • When commissioning any radiator (including aluminium) on an indirect/closed system we recommend using a suitable mixed metal inhibitor in suitable quantities to protect against scale and corrosion.
     

Electric / Dual Fuel

The majority of our towel rails can be converted to work as dual fuel models. An element and T-piece is needed to adapt the towel rail; your installer will need to be aware if you wish to do this in order to adjust pipe centres accordingly. See our accessories range for all our elements. If a towel rail is suitable for dual fuel it will be noted in the product overview section. 
 

Pipe Centres

We endeavour to ensure all pipe centres are correct, however manufacturing tolerances must be considered; therefore we strongly recommend that pipe work is not altered or adjusted until your new radiator or towel rail is delivered. The Radiator Company will not accept any responsibility for claims resulting from incorrect pipe centres.

Delivery

Please note that many of our factories close for 2 - 4 weeks during the holiday period of July/August and December. This may extend the delivery period quoted for non stock, made to order, items ordered during July/August and December/January. We will confirm the expected delivery date on our order acknowledgement at the time of order. Unfortunately delivery to Scotland / Offshore Islands may take longer due to the distance involved. Deliveries will be made to the nearest hard standing area. A nominal £5 charge for postage and packing will be applied to any orders under £50 in value. 

Deliveries to non-mainland UK addresses, Direct delivery (to site or domestic addresses), or delivery requests outside our standard delivery times (e.g. Next Day) will have delivery charges added, such charges must be agreed prior to shipment.

 

Systems

All radiators and towel rails featured on this website are suitable for indirect/closed systems that comply with 'BS5449, section 1 forced circulation hot water systems'.
Systems running with low pressures (under 1 Bar) or microbore pipework may experience flow and heating issues if not accounted for in the system design which could result in radiators not heating fully or noisy pipework.
Direct heating systems use your hot water supply to heat a radiator; usually this will occur in a bathroom. if you have any radiator or towel rails linked to a direct system they should be made from either stainless steel or brass to avoid rusting and contaminating the hot water supply.

 

Powder coat finishes and painted cast iron

It should be noted that due to the production process colours can vary by +/- 5-10% from samples provided and between radiators ordered in the same colour at different times. All painted cast iron radiators will be checked and tested prior to despatch. Care must be taken when handling and joining painted cast iron radiators on site to avoid damaging the finish. Cast iron radiators will be supplied with a small bottle of touch up paint in case of damage to the finish during installation, however it should be noted that this may vary slightly from the standard powder coat finish. As a result of the casting process, cast iron radiators have a rough surface finish with small imperfections which will show after the painting process.
