We are eager to share with you the secrets of our beautiful cast iron radiators, masterfully crafted in Lincolnshire. We invite you to take a look behind the scenes with our showroom and factory tour.

Why You Should Embark On A Factory Tour

Factory tours were all the rage in the 1920s, where members of the public flocked to see new products being made with cutting-edge machinery. Over one hundred years later, we still have some of that fascination with what happens in the workshop or on the assembly line; factory tours are being offered all over Britain. You can watch anything being made, from cars to glass and even cheese. 

Some factories offering tours have almost reinvented themselves as tourist experiences, priding themselves on their ability to entertain. At Trads, we offer an authentic tour, observing our craftsmen going about their daily work, combined with the opportunity to indulge your inner mechanic by trying your hand at assembling or painting a radiator.

Seeing With Your Own Eyes

As you traverse our 25,000 square foot factory floor, you can see with your own eyes the care and expertise that goes into making our cast iron radiators. On your factory tour, you will see preparation, assembly, polish, painting and packaging, but also the 60-step quality assurance process and the testing of individual radiators. 

Once you have finished your factory tour, you can move on to our showroom, displaying cast iron radiators in 50 styles and sizes. Get a feel for the different radiators by seeing them fitted against a wall and compare and contrast the colours and finishes. Our bespoke radiator service and 10,000 different shades enable you to design your perfect radiator from the various styles and finishes that you have seen arrayed throughout the showroom.
