Our cast iron ranges are available in a beautiful, burnished or high luster, polished finish and a clear lacquer finish that shows off the raw beauty of the natural cast iron for a more industrial look. Created by hand in the UK, these processes involve multiple stages; for the clear lacquer finish the radiators are first given a light sand blast to reveal the raw metal and remove any base primer, a topcoat of clear hardwearing is then applied lacquer to prevent rust developing.
For the polished and burnished finishes first a complete coat of black paint is applied to protect hidden, hard to access areas of the radiator and to provide a highlight for the visible polished areas. The radiator is then polished on the front, sides & tops of the sections, whilst the rear & more difficult to access areas between the sections remain black. Then a top coat of lacquer is applied for long lasting protection.
