    Stelrad softline. Nice looking standard radiators
     
  6. Thanks - do you find these are preferred by customers in general?

    How do the bracket sizes compare with the myson and Quinn

    what’s the average cost per inch of the radiators

    how does colouring match up to other radiators on the market

  10. One rad brand might be more popular but less value for money and the other might be better value for money but not quite as popular from an aesthetics point of view - I'll be refurbishing houses regularly so will be buying regularly

    Buy quality.

    I had some 1970s Stelrad in my house. I bought a modern Stelrad, but wasn't quite happy with it. I got a couple of Quinns: a short one was OK, but the 1.6m long one was very thin steel and wobbles.

    More recently, I bought a bunch of Myson Premier rads, and this difference is night and day. They are solid. They don't flex. Absolutely brilliant! Even tempted to replace a modern Quinn with a Myson!

    Best value for money would be kudox from screwfix or Toolstation.

    I've fitted Prorad aswell which is part of the stelrad group and they are alright, actually there the best rads I've installed (along with 2x burlo's, I was going to change the whole house to burlo then they went bust shortly after I bought the first 2 and stock became impossible to get), heat up quickly and evenly, the worst one i installed was a purmo, just doesn't seem to heat evenly or give out much heat. (Yes my system is balanced).

    Henrad are also good if you can find reasonable prices.

    Also try this company, I've used them and they are good, only downside of ordering rads online is damage from the courier, issues are sorted quickly but until you remove the packaging you don't know.
