Recently the heating contractor sent us a few pics of the radiators after re-installation & we were delighted to receive the following message with them:
It’s taken some time, but photos enclosed.
Very, very impressed with your service and radiator finish. I wish we had a greater need for refurbishing of rads, but I will certainly be in touch when we do. Will also mention you to architects I know.
Our client was undertaking a complete renovation of an old manor house in a Wiltshire village and wanted to preserve the antique radiators. Here’s the pics of them when we picked them up, and when we delivered them back. The client chose a lovely gunmetal paint finish for them all.
The larger of these decorative radiators weighed in at 173kg! They are likely to have been manufactured circa 1900 so it is fitting we have just delivered them to an Edwardian townhouse in Bath. They should certainly belt the heat out!
This is part of an ongoing project in a large Queen Anne country house. We are removing the reproduction cast iron radiators, which had started to leak, and replacing them with antique reconditioned rads. Reclaimed radiators to the rescue!
This one took some sourcing! A client wanted a fairly high BTU output radiator for their house restoration project in Dorset. The catch? Low enough to fit under the cupboards. Old cast iron rads this long and low are quite uncommon. As soon as this little beauty (Ideal, four columns, 18 inch high, neo-classic and a whopping 22 sections long) came up for sale, it had their name on it!
Glorious sunny weather today for delivery of a freshly restored vintage radiator to a prestigious house currently undergoing refurbishment in Bath. Tourists were out in force snapping pics of the Reclaimed Radiators Van (!). Did you know the original architect, John Wood the Elder, based the diameter of the Circus in Bath on the 318 foot diameter of Stonehenge?!
Careful transport of original radiators is so important – this poor 2 column arrived in a VW Golf (!) and subsequently failed it’s pressure test. In the second photo you can see it taken apart for repair. The third photo shows a fully restored 2 column radiator – good as new!
David supplied a large number of reconditioned original cast iron radiators to a private client who is restoring a mansion in Wiltshire. The radiators have been in storage for some time now, and the first phase of the restoration is nearing completion. We were allowed inside for a sneaky look at some of the rooms, which are just breathtakingly beautiful. More pics when we have finished the final stage of this big project.
