Features and Abilities of Horizontal Column Radiators
There are several types of radiator that differ due to their technical characteristics: the material they are made of, their weight, output, size, design and prices. It is very important to choose an exact device that meets all your demands.
Materials, Used to Make These Devices
The simplest radiators work on the following principle: water that is heated up to a certain temperature is supplied through usual heating pipes or from a hot water tap. These devices can be made of several types of metals: cast iron, steel, bimetallic alloys, even non-ferrous metals. Cast iron has been used for such radiators for many years, because it is reliable enough and shows good thermal conductivity. However, these heavy items are being replaced gradually by steel radiators. Steel is reliable enough, too, but it lets through more warmth, without wasting it on heating the surface.
The Way They Perform
Still, the main disadvantage of such radiators is their stability, being fixed to water pipes once, they cannot be moved to another place. Horizontal column radiators that are powered by electricity are much more mobile in this sense. They can be moved to another place, providing there is access to the mains.
Radiators we offer are able to work with water from central heating pipes, with electricity or both these options. It’s up to you to choose how you are going to use the devices and where you are going to install it. In any case, you will have what you need: warmth and comfort, without thinking about the nasty weather outside. They are quite simple to install, and if you choose to locate such a device on a wall, you can have special fitting that will make this process simple and harmless for your interior. You should not worry about their safety, either: they are tested properly to endure a high pressure.
