Build the perfect Curved radiator
Use our Curved Radiator Builder to achieve your output requirements in the space you have available. To create your perfect radiator simple steps (detailed instructions can be found here);
- Work out your BTU requirement. You can do so using our Heat Output Calculator.
- Select the section height and the width you need to achieve your desired output. Your straight radiator must be at least 200mm shorter than the width of your bay (known as the Chord). Please consider the height of your window sill, allow at least 40mm gap between the sill and the top of your radiator. Please note the Welded Feet add 97mm to your radiator height
- Measure the width of the bay (this is called the Chord, Dimension A shown above)
- From the centre of the bay measure the distance to the skirting board if present (known as the camber, dimension B shown above)
To calculate the radius of the radiator we assume 45mm between the wall and the back of the radiator. In addition to curve a radiator the internal radius must be a minimum of 1000mm for 2 and 3 column radiators and 1300mm for 4 column radiators. The radiator builder will automatically set the minimum and maximum camber and chords achievable for each radiator size and will let you know if there are any issues that need addressing.
Then choose your colour and valves (we have shortlisted a selection of our most popular thermostatic valves which you can see here).
To complete your radiator, see our range of accessories; including pipe covers and shrouds, towel rails, pegs and hooks here.
You can then save your curved radiator technical specification to your wish list for future reference or down load and save it. This can then be used to order from your local merchant or Showroom.
