Premium Lacquer

Now, this is interesting, firstly we prepare and polish the radiator then it is coated with an opaque tinted lacquer that gives deep lustre that still shows the cast iron detail below. Premium Lacquers are available in a wide range of on trend colours for that more contemporary feel.

Hand Polishing

Polished perfection, the ultimate finish

Polishing offers what can only be described as one of the best finishes you can buy. Hours of work go in to each section to create an amazing handsome finish that you will always be proud of. Using traditional methods, our skilled polishers work each section of your cast iron radiator to accentuate its beautiful unique detail. There are several levels of finishing to choose from:

Industrial: Our industrial look was created to show the best of raw cast iron, firstly we smooth the surfaces then we capture some of the natural patinas under a coat of clear lacquer. A truly inspiring ‘Manhattan loft’ look for interiors where original unadulterated design comes first.

Burnished: This creates a slightly aged look that works well as a muted but high quality finish that shows off the radiator without being overpowering.

Polished: This is the most popular and a traditional method of finishing that brings out the very best in your radiator giving an impressive shine that will enhance any interior.

Mirror: Building further on the traditional Polished finish Mirror finishing brings your polished radiators surface up to the best and brightest possible finish available. It certainly makes a stunning impression.

Our usual polishing method allows for blacking of the lower area of the radiator that is against the wall, you can however order the Full polish option if it is going to be seen from all sides.
