Painted Finish

 We can either leave your radiator in an unfinished primer should you want to paint your radiators in your own specific colour. Or we offer a wide range of top coated finishes to suit your room decor or colour scheme, this ranges from the very popular country creams to the more modern colours.


Hand Burnished Finish

This very popular finish works great in either the period property or the contemporary setting. This finish has been thought of initially to give an old worn look, as if the paints been rubbed off by people sitting against and touching them for many years. Even though we thought of this finish as an old traditional look it looks stunning in the modern home.


Hand Painted Finish

This unique and increasingly popular finish is most suited to the decorative detailed radiators (commonly known as French embossed radiators).It requires two stages of paint one is the base coat the other more prominent  colour for  the detail. What makes this unique is that each radiator individually painted by hand and not two radiators are identical.






Our radiators can be finished in a wide range of colours, they can be top coated in a RAL colour, BS colour or the very sought after hand burnished finish.

We can also finish the more ornate decorative French radiators in 2 colours to really show off the relief detail.

If you prefer we can leave your cast iron radiators with a prime under coat if you wish to have them painted yourself.
