Cast iron is the original material used in the Victorian period for manufacturing radiators. Cast iron radiators bring authenticity and add timeless quality to contemporary interiors. The high density of this material makes it efficiently store heat, so the radiators stay worm for a long period of time after the central heating has been turned off. For this reason, cast iron radiators are the top choice amongst heating engineers and architects, particularly for older buildings, as these radiators help retain the warmth inside of the building which counteracts damp and condensation.

Cast iron radiators have an unlimited lifespan, meaning the choice between new or vintage is completely up to you. Vintage radiators are restored to work as new ones, and provide the same functionality.

Our stock of vintage radiators is limited, but we are continuously producing new radiators according to your wishes and needs. Determining the right size and model of radiator you need, can easily be made if you visit our warehouse and talk to one of our professionals about the room where the radiator is going to be placed.

Our radiators are finished through spray-painting. However, before actually painting them, the radiators are electrostatically charged in order to ensure an even coverage.
We don’t use powder coating as it needs heating up the radiator up to 200°C which may damage the seals between radiator sections and also because powder coating completely covers the beautiful and fine details of the decorations.

The answer is yes, you can. Cast iron radiators can be installed anywhere as long as there is a hot water system involved.

For any radiator, you will need two valves. Our valves are sold in pairs – one valve is the temperature control while the other one is used to help balance the system and it’s called a lock shield.

You will have to decide between manual and thermostatic valves. Both types offer the same control over the heating. Read below for more details on differences between them. If you feel like the information provided was not enough, feel free to contact us.

Manual valves act like simple taps that control the flow of hot water into the radiator, determining how hot the radiator gets. Manual valves require physical action from your part, to turn heat up or down. An advantage of manual valves is that they are smaller and more discreet than thermostatic ones.

Thermostatic radiator valves have a built-in temperature sensor. These help maintain the room temperature constant, by automatically adjusting the heat output from the radiator.

Thermostatic valves are preferred as they help on money saving and prevent energy wasting by overheating a room. The valves ensure the radiator performs as efficiently as possible, taking into notice the exterior heating sources such as the sun or other running electrical appliances.

Radiators are usually positioned in the coldest part of the room, against an outside wall or under a window, where the cold air drops to the floor, ensuring air circulation. However, you can choose where you want your radiators to be positioned, according to the overall design of the room.

Our radiators are compatible with normal central heating systems with the standard fittings. If you already have a central heating system set up, you can choose to replace all the radiators or just some of them.

We recommend asking a competent plumber or heating engineer to install your radiators.

We offer a 10 year warranty on our radiators while our valves are guaranteed for a period of 5 years.

Our radiators can be delivered in the colors of the Ral-chart and an anthracite finish.

Our complete collection of vintage radiators and new radiators can be seen at our warehouse. Also, you can see them online, in the radiator section of our website.

Our new radiators can also be seen at different locations throughout Europe.
