Q. What is a column radiator?
A. Column radiators are as they sound, made up of columns to create your radiator. The amount of radiator columns can be decided by looking at the end of the radiator and seeing how many sections there are.
Q. Why should I choose a column radiator?
A. Column radiators are a classic radiator style, designed to fit in with any home. Perfect if you do not want either a contemporary style or traditional, and would just like a standard radaitor that will suit any home. Available in a range of colours and different heat out puts to suit any situation and colour scheme.
Q. What style should I go for?
A. There aren't really style options with raditors as the categories tend to speak for themeselves, that is the design that you are opting for. However, these are available in a range of different colurs, with different amounts of columns and either a vertical mounted design, or horizontally mounted design. There is nor right or wrong, you will need to take into account the size of the room that you are trying to heat, the size of space that you have to accomodate the radiator, the colour scheme in the room you are installing into, and the kind of wall you are installing onto. if you are at all unsure if one of these radiators would be suitable then please speak to your installer prior to purchasing.
Q. Will I need anything else to go with my column radiator?
A. You will need radiator valves to connect your pipework into the radiator. See the technical drawings for the one that you want to buy, and check with your installer whether you would need straight or angled valves. As a general rule, if the radiators inlets are on the sides of the raditor and your pipework is coming out from the wall or up from the floor you will need angled valves. if the inlets are at the bottom of the radiator and your pipework is coming up from the floor you will need straight radiator valves, or if the pipe work is coming out from your wall you will need angled valves. Always check the adverts and technical carefully.
Q. Are column radiators suitable for use in a cloakroom bathroom?
A. We would usually say no as cloakroom bathrooms tend only to be big enough to accommodate a toilet and basin or at the most a small towel rail design.
