The benefits of double radiators
The main benefit of double radiators is that they emit more heat, faster and more evenly, than their single panel counterparts. This makes them a great choice for larger rooms that require a higher heat output to stay warm. Meanwhile, single panel radiators tend to be more suited to smaller or awkward-shaped rooms. These work well when there isn’t much space where the radiator needs to be sited, or where less thermal efficiency is required.
Ideal for maximising all available wall space, our Tornado vertical mild steel double radiator (shown here in Pastel Turquoise) adds a dash of colour to this neutral room scheme
When considering which radiators are best for which room, you’ll also need to consider their projection. In simple terms, double radiators ‘stick out’ from the wall slightly more than single ones. So, they might not be the best option for a narrow passage or corridor, if they’re likely to cause an obstruction that people will bump into.
