During out last stock-take, we found we had over 480 radiators, so we always have plenty of radiators in stock. We sell them as they are but offer a service whereby we take them to a company that test, blasts and paints them. He also alters the fittings to make them compatible with a modern system.
The radiators come in a a variety of shapes and styles, most of which are shown below.
Generally 4-column (5 3/4in deep) or 6-column (9in deep), in heights of 18/24/30/36in.
Also 9-column window radiators, 13 x 13in in various lengths.
Early, fancy radiators
My these were heavy! 62 inches long and 35 tall these two beauties came from a very grand house on the south side where, as a novelty invention in Victorian days, they sat on prominent display in prid...
Long low 'Princess' radiator
Bit of a challenge to get this one as it sat on a window ledge half way up a staircase where one end was at knee height and the other at head height, and it aint light. Cracking rad though, wit...
Decorative window radiators
We bought 4 of these just before christmas but it turns out that 2 of them will need a bit of TLC before we can get them up and running again (and one of them is going to have to sacrifice its legs fo...

Monster rads from the Isles
Not the sort of thing we usually take as they are such buggers to move, but they'll sure pump out the heat, as they've been doing at the Pavillion on the isle of Bute for the last 80 odd years. the 36...
fully finished huge radiator
This is just a pic to show one of our radiators all restored and in situ in a customers house. Its one of the monster rads we got from a school in Greenock-and here it is in its new west end abode loo...
New Batch of Radiators
I've not seen this style before, but a batch of about 20 of these has just come in with a little flourish on the top corners. Chunky round tops & more slender ones with heights from 26-38in & various ...
have you had you weetabix?
We recently did a job in an old school where there were lots of round top radiators, some of which were really long low ones. Ordinarily we wouldn't buy ones as long as this as they are so tricky to m...
lots of dinky 6 column rads
We've just finished a rather gruelling job removing over 100 radiators from a 1920's deco block of flats in Whitecraigs, out of which we have a lot (more than in the pic) of these unusual 18" high 6 c...
tallest and shortest radiators
God bless them all, the long and the short and the tall etc etc. Only the second time I've ever come across a radiator as tall as this. Its 6 sections long and is shown next to one of 4 round topped w...
Just a few of our radiators
At the last stock take we had around 400 original cast iron radiators. They come in all shapes and sizes and we can work out the outputs for each of them for you. we offer a service where, once you ha...
Long legged 4 column radiator
Sometimes we come across 4 or 6 column radiators with extra long legs, we think these were made in order to make it easier to sweep and clean under neath them. We don't generally have many of this pa...
Skinny round top radiator with ears
We get these in like this and also the fatter version in a variety of heights (26, 32 and 38 inches tall). As nice as the usual round tops but with just that little bit of extra detail....
A more unusual style of decorative radiator, though one we get from time to time. The one shown (a lot of the detailing is lost under the very thick paint) is 24 inches high. They generally have bolte...
Decorative and industrial styles of window radiators
A couple of pics of some more unusual window radiators, both of which are 13 inches tall and deep. The decorative one is most unusual, we've only ever had about 3 or 4 in stock. Very heavy and with se...
We usually have a few decorative radiators in stock, but they are usually the taller (38 inches) type, though we do get others. They generally come from churches....
Skinny round top radiators
We almost always have quite a lot of these in stock in a variety of heights (26,32 and 38 inches tall). They can still be quite big and therefore give off a good heat, but being slimmer, they take up ...
2 variations on the chunky round top theme
A couple of variants of the chunky 2 column round top rads which come in the usual variety of heights (roughly 26, 32 and 39 inches tall). One has rather dainty little feet which it tries to tuck back...
Chunky two column round top radiators
We see quite a lot of this style of radiator, though they are often rather large and tall as they were often used in schools etc. This style always seems very popular though we generally have quite a ...
Unusual styles of rads
Nice radiators these, but not of a type we see very often (not that they are that different). the sections are a little bit chunkier and there is extra piping around the edges....
Chunky 3 and 4 column radiators
we don't generally stock this style as yet though we usually have one or two lurking around. They are perfectly decent radiators, but they are just a bit more heavy in their design. I suspect that the...
6 column radiators
The fatter 6 column radiators are a bit less common than the 4 column ones but are still readily available. They come in the main 3 styles of 'Ideal', 'Crane' and 'Odd Crane' and can be 18, 24, 30 or...
The 'Odd Crane' style
This is what we refer to as the 'odd crane' they were manufactured by the 'Crane' Company but are more rounded than their other style. They are still one of the more commonly found styles around and l...
