How to buy
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 mild steel designer radiators (even a range of environmentally friendly aluminium radiators), with a choice of sizes, colours and outputs to suit every interior scheme.
3. Select a size that meets your heat output requirement;
Outputs are shown in the product information section of each product page and will help you and your installer to find the best match for your needs. All outputs are shown at Delta ΔT 50°C in both British Thermal Units (BTU’s) and Watts.
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.
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, please be sure to consult your installer.
Electric / Dual Fuel
The majority of our towel rails can be converted to work as dual fuel models. An electric 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 and T-Pieces. If a towel rail is suitable for dual fuel it will be noted in the product overview section.
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. Radiators Direct will not accept any responsibility for claims resulting from incorrect pipe centres.
