They are a type of radiator made from vertical tubular steel columns welded to end pieces at the top and bottom which creates a single section.
Columns - You’ll often hear these radiators described as 2 column radiators, 3 column radiators or 4 column radiators, this refers to the number of vertical tubes on each section. The more columns it has the deeper the radiator will project from the wall. The most popular being the three column radiator, heights can vary from 300mm to 3000mm high.
Sections - Each section is joined individually, either by a joining nipple and gasket system or they are welded. The more sections you have, the longer the radiator and the more heat output available. These sections can be seperated to make fitting and transporting your Column Radiator easier.
Finish - Most of our column radiators are finished in a powder coated (extra tough paint finish) white as standard. We also stock anthracite column radiators (grey / black) and bare metal column radiators (raw metal with a clear lacquer top coat, to prevent rust). Additionally, we can offer reasonably quick delivery on popular painted colours and can supply colour painted column radiators in any finish you require on a bespoke, made to order service.
Where can you put them?
Column radiators are equally suited to traditional or contemporary rooms. The overall effect can be influenced by the type of radiator valve you fit or the colour, sheen and texture of the paint applied.When it comes to traditional and contemporary radiators, the usual assumption is that column radiators are contemporary and cast iron ones are traditional. This is not the case.
Although cast iron radiators are more traditional and very well suited for Victorian and Georgian buildings, column radiators can be styled to be traditional and have the following advantages over cast iron ones:
i) Price - column radiators are cheaper than cast iron radiators
ii) Installation - they are easier to position and connect as they don’t weigh as much as cast iron.
iii) Speed - the tubular steel has thinner wall sections than cast iron, so it will heat up faster.
