3. Assess the length of the radiator
Allow at least 100mm either side of the radiator for valves. For instance if the arc of the curve is 1000mm, choose a radiator no longer than 800mm.
4. Check the height of the radiator
If the radiator is under a window, we suggest leaving 100mm between the top of the radiator and the bottom of the sill. Don’t forget that the advertised height of Florence radiators does not include feet. Allow 100mm for the feet. For instance a Florence 2 Column 300mm will actually measure 400mm tall once installed.
5. Go deeper for more heat
Curved radiators are typically available in 2, 3 or 4 column variants. A 4 column gives roughly twice the amount of heat of a 2 column radiator, all other things being equal. It is possible to make even deeper arched radiators up to 6 Columns. Get in touch for specialist projects.
