Available in a range of finishes
CRANE® Cast Iron Radiators are available in a range of sizes and are delivered completed in any finish you require.
CRANE® Radiators look at their best when polished. We offer two types of polish – satin polish or hand polished finish. CRANE® have developed a patent pending lacquering process which is essential for every polished cast iron radiator. This process will ensure that your polished CRANE® Cast Iron Radiators will look like they have just been polished for years to come.
The lacquer CRANE® use is unique. It is a special
formulation which incorporates inhibiting agents along with a non
yellowing, semi elastic lacquer. The inhibitors prevent any bronzing
or rusting from within while the lacquer prevents oxidisation of the
outer surface without changing the colour of the polished metal. The
semi elastic nature is designed to make damage to the lacquers outer
skin as difficult as possible. The finished product has been
thoroughly tested – confidence in this guarantee extends to this use
of polished CRANE® radiators in bathrooms or damp
Alternatively, your CRANE® Cast Iron Radiators can be painted in any RAL Colour, Sanderson paint or Farrow and Ball paint. We also have a small selection of our own popular stock colours that have been in use for generations.
