Hey guys

I currently live in a new building and looking to decorate the hallway. At the minute I've got a standard white radiator there which is being fed by the white microbore pipes that come from the back of the radiator. I'm thinking about swapping the rad for a grey decorative one. What's the usual way to connect these?

Designer radiators usually have to be fitted a particular way around which means you need to know which pipe is the flow or return plus you'll also need particular connectors for the microbore. As you're asking it might be one for a plumber if I were you.

A lot of people are disppointed by the heat output on vertical rads.

The small pipework would need to be adapted in the wall to connect to the new designer rad usually in 15 mm copper . Kop

Barlo Radiators are my top pick to install. For a more budget radiator I always go to bestheating.com
