Slimline Radiator

Our slimline radiators are the perfect fit for hallways while adding period charm to your home. In this section, we’ve curated a collection of cast iron radiators designed to complement these often-overlooked spaces and create a warm and inviting ambiance.

Did you know all of our models are available in a range of depths?

Pictured above, our Mercury 2 Column radiators are just 2.8″ deep. For more heat, upgrade to a 3-column version at 3.9″ depth, similar to a double-panel steel convector radiator. Our space-efficient, slim cast iron radiators blend perfectly with modern interiors.

Heating Efficiently with Slimline Radiators

In homes where space is a precious commodity, our sleek slimline radiators offer both efficient heating and elegant aesthetics. Engineered to fit seamlessly along narrow walls, corridors, and entranceways, these space-savvy radiators save valuable room while delivering optimal warmth. Position them along exterior walls to counteract cold drafts and ensure even heat distribution. Enhance control with Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs), allowing personalized temperature adjustments in each room for ultimate comfort. Our Emmeline I range, pictured left, is one of our most popular cast iron column radiators with a slimline appearance.

Three Reasons Why It’s A Mistake To Overlook Heating In The Hallway

When people think of cozy rooms, the hallway isn’t usually one that comes to mind. Yet, these often-overlooked areas play a crucial role in creating a warm and inviting home. Here are three compelling reasons why showing your hallways some love isn’t just about aesthetics – it’s a practical approach to enhancing overall heating efficiency and maintaining a comfortable ambiance throughout your home.

1. The halls, stairs and landings are the arteries of the house

If we think of warm air as the blood, radiators help to pump the heat around and distribute it evenly. Heat from downstairs is able to rise up through the property and filter into adjoining rooms. Provided your loft insulation is adequate, the heat emitted in the hallway will not go to waste.

2. Interior walls can become ‘heatsinks’ if they are not heated from both sides

You may not spend much time there, but keeping the hallway cold and only heating the living room is counter-intuitive. In fact, the heat energy emitted in the living room is absorbed into the cold wall rather than staying in the room. Maintaining a lower, but more constant ambient temperature in the hallway, helps to heat rooms more efficiently.

3. It’s often where the thermostat is

If you keep the hallway cold, the thermostat will overheat the rest of the house. To help the thermostat work correctly, make sure radiators in the surrounding area are fitted with regular valves rather than TRVs.

Incorporating Hallway Radiators into Interior Design

When exploring where to place your hallway radiator, leverage the available wall space strategically to enhance both functionality and aesthetics. Opt for eye-catching central placement to make the radiator a focal point, seamlessly integrating with the hallway’s design. Consider integrating narrow radiators into alcoves or recessed spaces for a sleek and unobtrusive appearance. Embrace horizontal placement along longer walls to create continuity and emphasize the hallway’s length.

These nuanced placement strategies reflect a thoughtful approach to interior design, transforming hallway radiators into seamless contributors to your home’s visual harmony.
