About Victorian Cast Iron Radiators

The Victorian Cast Iron Radiators that we offer are modelled on original designs which were first introduced in the 1880s. Initially, these were expensive to manufacture, however, the industrial revolution modernised their production and led to them becoming a common feature in many homes.

As Cast Iron Radiators became more affordable they also transformed in appearance, many people opted for more decorative styles, such as the Dragonfly model. These can make real statement pieces, and the highlight polish is a perfect finish for them as it accentuates the ornate designs.

However, the original Victorian design has stood the test of time, and is a classic for a reason. This radiator is highly efficient, effortlessly stylish, and is the perfect addition to any space.

Finding The Right Size Of Victorian Cast Iron Radiator

One of the factors that make this radiator so versatile is that it is available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. 


The number of columns that your radiator has dictates its depth, as well as its BTU output. For large open spaces, more columns may be necessary to ensure that the room is heated effectively. This model is available in 2, 3, 4, 6, or 9 column options. 


There are a total of 12 different height options for a Victorian radiator, ranging from 325mm to 920mm, allowing you to find the perfect fit for your home!
