Radiators - what material is best for me?

Radiators - what material is best for me? 0

Designer Radiators and Heated Towel Rails can be crafted from a number of materials.

At Great Rads we have an extensive selection, and in this blog we go through the main to try and understand what would be best for you.

Stainless Steel Radiators 

Stainless Steel is a timeless beauty, and the best material radiators can be crafted from. It does not corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel could potentially do. So you can be sure that if you leave your damp towels to dry out on it won't degrade over time. In fact all it needs is a wipe when cleaning with soap or a mild detergent whilst cleaning, and it will be as good as new.

This quality is reflected in the very long guarantees offered, typically from 20 to 25 years!

Stainless Steel is used where both the properties of steel and corrosion resistance are required.

Stainless Steel also has the advantage of conducting heat 15% better than Mild Steel. This is due in the main to the fact that Mild Steel requires a coat of protective Chrome or Paint, which radiates a small amount of heat back restricting heat output. 

The radiators available at Great Rads are all Grade 304 stainless steel. Which is also used for a variety of home and industry uses, such as screws, machinery parts, car headers, fabrics and other uses.

Typically the finishes will be either Polished, which provides a lovely reflective mirror finish. Or a more subtle Brushed Mat or Satin, which is more of a matt sheen.

To recap some of the key points of Stainless Steel Radiators

  • Won't rust, corrode or stain
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Higher Heat Output than Mild Steel
  • Hand built
  • Stunning surface finishes with no protective skin required
  • Polished or Brushed by hand
  • Very long guarantees, circa 20-25 years

Aluminium Radiators

Aluminium is known for its strength, flexibility, exceptional lightness, and resistance to corrosion. It is also a fantastic conductor of heat, making it ideal for manufacturing radiators. 

What this means is the radiators are light and easy to handle, long-lasting, and are quick to heat up and cool down making them very efficient and cost effective. They also give a really high overall heat output compared to similar sized steel panel radiators.

An additional feature is the fact they require a lower water content to operate, the benefit being less demand on the heating system.

Some of the designs available in Aluminium are just stunning and original, some examples:

The Aeon Planet Moon with a moonlike surface.

Aeon Planet Moon

The Aeon Sesriem with a luxurious feel

Aeon SesriumAeon Sesriem

The stunning Aeon Porte in wood effect finish

To summarise the benefits of Aluminium Radiators

  • Fast to get to the required heat temperature
  • Low water content
  • Very high heating outputs
  • Lightweight and easy to install
  • Eco friendly, and easily recyclable 
  • Energy Bills reduced
  • Amazing designs available

Steel Radiators

Mild Steel is very competitively priced, and the large majority of the low to mid-range Radiators are manufactured from it. An important aspect of Steel Radiator installation and care is the correct amount of inhibitor, this will reduce the chances of internal rust building up. Your Plumber will be able to recommend the right amount.

Mild Steel Radiators will always have a finish on them, such as a painted finish, or chrome plating, this is due to the bare untreated surface not being very cosmetically appealing, and also it would reduce the corrosion resistant qualities.

So, Mild Steel Radiators are

  • Competitively priced
  • A large range of paint finishes and styles are available
  • Chrome plating can be mirror like in its finish
  • Lots of different styles and designs to cater for any taste

Below are 3 fabulous examples of painted steel:

The Reina Neva Vertical Designer Radiator on the left, the Reina Terano Designer Radiator in the middle, and lastly the Reina Reflect Radiator on the right

If you require any further information on the options available please feel free to contact our team on enquiries@greatrads.co.uk, or 0845 094 6015. We will be delighted to talk you through the options.

Radiators don't have to be boring!!!

Radiators don't have to be boring!!! 0

Welcome to this weeks blog:

For many years the choice of radiators was somewhat limited.  Subsequently in most houses we have functional radiators, keeping the house nice and warm but not really being a part of the room design.  In fact, they are normally out of the way just doing their job. 

With the fantastic range of radiators now available, these essential items don't have to be banished behind the sofa! In fact, they can be an integral part of the design, proud and at the front.  Manufacturers such as Aeon and Reina are at the forefront of designing bespoke hand-made radiators.

If you have a traditional design in your room, or live in a rural property, then Column Radiators would be a great addition. There are also horizontal and vertical models available, for example the Reina Colona, with prices starting from £82, would make a good choice.

If you are looking for an ultra modern design in your room, there are plenty of splendid choices available.  Stainless Steel is not only a material that will never flake or dis-colour, with fantastic 20 or 25 year guarantees available, it is also very striking and luxurious to look and touch. 

The Aeon Clipper below is a big seller, which would look great in any kitchen - it has the added benefit of hooks for tea-towels or clothes, practicality combined with stunning design.

Aeon Clipper Stainless Steel Radiator

Another popular model is the Aeon Venetian.  It boasts a minimal design, with the added benefit of an optional infini mirror or clip on towel rail

For those of you with generous hallway space, Tower Radiators or Floor Standing Radiators could be very fitting - with their blazing heating outputs they really can provide comforting warmth throughout.

The Aeon Alien (above left) is a best-selling Tower Radiator, and the Reina Marinox on the right would enhance any hallway with its attractive floor-standing design.

Should you be in search of something really striking, there are some outstanding aluminium designs around that not only heat up quickly, and are lightweight, but look fantastic as well. 3 of the best are below.

The first is the Aeon Stargate, the second the Aeon Planet Moon, and thirdly the Aeon Sesriem - these are increasingly popular with Great Rads customers.

 

If you are designing on a budget, there is no need to compromise on design:

The Reina Neva (below left), Reina Sena (below right) and the Reina Rione (bottom right) have prices starting from £83 and come in a great choice of colours and sizes.

So radiators don't have to be boring, there are choices available for any taste or any budget. Let them become a focal point of your room - a modern version of a fireplace.

Introduction to Aeon Designer Radiators - Simply stunning!

Introduction to Aeon Designer Radiators - Simply stunning! 1

Aeon Design create some of the most stunning radiators available in the market place today.

Just one quick glance through the collection of luxurious heated sculptures is enough to demonstrate how eclectic the range of designs, sizes and influences is.

The Aeon team of designers have been inspired by so many different themes and ideas that it would be impossible to list them all on just one page.

Let's take a look at some of the designs:

The really modern Aeon Cat Ladder - Stainless Steel Towel Radiator

 

 

The simply stunning and individual Aeon Lokum Stainless Steel Radiator

The statement piece Aeon Wave Stainless Steel Radiator

The oriental inspired Aeon Bamboo Stainless Steel Radiator

Or what about its little brother, the really different Aeon Bamboo Corner Radiator

All Aeon products are welded using a Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding technique, which results in joints that are equally as strong as the main body of the radiator, as well as being a visually pleasing part of the whole piece.

Another technique allows the creation of stunning bars that have been twisted uniformly to create a line of alternating brushed and polished steel surfaces. A special twisting machine allows us to manipulate stainless steel poles of almost any length and size to create a vertical or horizontal design with up to three twists per line. See the Aeon Twister for an example of this - what a head turner.
