    Aluminium Price Crash! Up to 70% off


    Benjamin Clarke

    Our February 2017 price extravaganza continues with massive discounts of up to 70% on all of our Designer Aluminium 'Eco' Radiators!

    We have a stunning selection of aluminium radiators finished in white, black, anthracite and silver in vertical and horizontal orientations. This gives you the flexibility to find the size, colour and shape to fit any space in your home - and we've just discounted them even further!

    Aluminium is one of the most abundant metals on Earth and has become an incredibly popular radiator material for a number of reasons.

    1. It's an amazing heat conductor, meaning it heats up quickly. This can save you money as the radiator doesn't use unnecessary energy taking ages to heat up.

    2. Studies have shown that aluminium radiators can be as much as 15% more energy efficient than other radiator materials, again, keeping down the cost of your energy bills.

    3. Aluminium is very light, making it cheaper to store and transport. These savings are then passed down to you the customer. Light aluminium rads are also easier to install so your plumber will thank you and won't require the expense of a second person to help.

    4. Aluminium is easy to recycle. It can be used again and agin without losing it's strength. Our aluminium rads are manufactured from recycled aluminium and they will be able to be recycled long after you've finished with them.

    5. Aluminium is very pliable, which means radiator manufacturers have been able to create some stunning aluminium radiator designs which look great in any room. We carry many of those stunning designs in our range!

    VIDEO - How To Install A Radiator Under A Window


    Benjamin Clarke

    In this excellent and informative video, Jimmy the plumber takes us through the process of installing a radiator under a window.

    As Jimmy explains, no matter how good your double glazing, windows will always let a small amount of cold air into the home (when compared to brick walls, for example). So whenerever possible, plumbers always like to install radiators under windows so that the cold air immediately gets warmed up as soon as it enters the house.

    In this particular house, it might appear that the gap underneath the window is too small to be able to fit a radiator underneath. However, due to the fact that Trade Radiators offers a wide variety of shapes and sizes of radiator, Jimmy shows that you can fit a rad in even the most awkward of spaces.

    Jimmy then runs through the process of measuring up the radiator, installing the brackets and then correctly hanging the rad so it looks great on the wall.

    The process of fitting a radiator is surprisingly easy so it's definitely a job you can tackle yourself. However, as with any plumbing job, if you are unsure about any part of the process, it's always best to get in a professional to do the job properly.

    The radiator installed in this video is a 300m high horizontal rad from our Trade Direct Flat Panel radiator range and we've got a huge variety of radiators for you to choose from.

    Whether you've got horizontal or vertical wall space, you'll find a rad in our flat panel range to suit your needs. We've got horizontal rads measuring from 300mm (h) x 800mm (w) right up to a whopping 600mm (h) x 2000mm (w). Similarly, for making use of upward space, we've got vertical rads measuring from 1600mm (h) x 500mm (w), all the way up to 1800mm (h) x 600mm (w).

    With an additional choice of single and double panels, as well as single or double convector fins, we've given you a massive amount of choice so you can get the exact measurements and heat outputs you need to heat your room, enabling you to modernise your home with minimal disruption!

    New smart element on Trade Direct electric heated towel rails


    Benjamin Clarke

    We are proud to announce that all of our Trade Direct electric heated towel rails now come with the option of a fantastic smart thermostat to control the temperature of your rails automatically!

    These beauties contain an internal sensor that allows you to set the temperate with 10 different resistant settings between 100 - 1000 Watts, making it very easy to set your rails to a consistent temperature of your choice.

    In Comfort Mode, the thermostat keeps the heated towel rail at the temperature set by you.

    The Boost 2h Mode means the element is boosted for 2 hours independently of the temperature you've set. After the 2 hours is up, it will return to the Comfort Mode.

    The P1 and P2 Modes gives you extra flexibility. You can set it so the Boost Mode comes on for two hours, then returns to the Comfort Mode for 10 hours or 22 hours (you set this) and then enters the Boost Mode again. This cycle can run endlessly if you want it to.

    Essentially it means you can have the flexibility of controlling when your heated towel rail is on and at what temperature, ensuring your towels and your room are warm when you want them to be.

    Our range of Trade Direct Heated Towel Rails are available here >>
