The best material for designer kitchen radiators
Cast iron isn’t the only available material for your kitchen radiators. Other options within our portfolio of modern kitchen radiators include mild steel, aluminium and stainless steel. Each has its own pros and cons in terms of appearance, energy efficiency, price and maintenance. So it’s worth assessing your priorities with regard to these different factors, before you make your final choice.

Stainless steel radiators are perennially popular, for many reasons. They are excellent heat conductors, warming up quickly, and retaining heat well. They’re also very resistant to rust and corrosion, and easy to keep clean and maintain.
Aluminium is fast becoming a popular option for radiators in the UK. This material is a superconductor. This means aluminium radiators warm up really fast, so they’re perfect if your priority is a responsive kitchen heating system.
Because aluminium is softer and more flexible than steel, it’s often used to create the contemporary shapes and styles of designer kitchen radiators. Aluminium kitchen radiators are also lighter than other materials. This means they tend to be fast and easy to install. They are also ideal for walls that aren’t suitable for heavy weights.
