How small can a low level radiator be?
This range of radiators starts at 230mm tall, with the DQ Delta Polished 230mm by 1600mm the smallest option in stock (also available in a Satin finish). In terms of how “tall” these radiators can get, the range goes up to 300mm, which is seen as the industry standard/cutoff point for low level radiators.
If you have some wiggle room, we recommend visiting our radiators by size section, which features the most popular radiator sizes used in the UK.
Do you have to hang a low level radiator?
Many of the products you see on this page are freestanding, as they tend to weigh less and can be supported by radiator feet or simply from pipe connections. In cases where the radiator does need to be hung, you’ll be able to check within the product description and accompanying documentation which highlights the installation in detail.
How do low level radiators work?
These radiators operate just like any other and don’t require any special features to get working. Your only hurdle would be heat output based on positioning. These radiators tend to be placed in conservatories and rooms where space is at a premium, so it is advisable to keep the area around the radiator clear. While they do have a reliable heat output, placing them under and behind furniture will not yield desired results.
Are low level radiators thicker?
There’s a slight sense of an optical illusion happening when you look at low level radiators. While they can range in depth from a simple flat panel all the way to two to four columns wide, these radiators have the same depth as normal models. It is simply down to the height and being able to look at the radiator from a different perspective that makes low level radiators sometimes look bulkier.

I have a bay window. Which radiators are most suitable?
Bay windows are often perceived to be a tricky spot to hang a radiator in, especially if the window sits low to the floor. We have some great options when looking at bay windows up to 300mm tall, namely the low level curved bay windows from Ultraheat, which run from 1000mm to 2200mm wide.
If you have a bit more height to work with, take a look at the full range of curved bay window convector radiators.
Are low level radiators hard to install?
No. They are installed just like a normal regular level radiator. With many models free hanging, it’s simply a case of making a clean connection. If the radiator needs hanging to a wall, you’ll find the brackets and other fittings in the box with your order.
As many low level radiators are installed in new or refurbished rooms where new pipes are installed, many customers also opt for matching radiator pipe sleeves & foot supports for a more complete look.
