Cast iron radiators are very efficient compared to the modern steel radiator and we see them enjoying a resounding revival in the UK for both modern and period homes owing to the combination of their energy efficiency and great looks.
Lincolnshire, UK (PRWEB UK) 2 November 2012
On October 18th, Paladin Radiators received a call from the ITV studios in London to provide cast iron radiators for an Alan Titchmarsh Show. The radiators were delivered for filming on October 24th and the feature was aired the same day.
The theme of the show was recreating a Downton Abbey style period interior in your home. The ITV producer requested the Paladin ‘St Paul’ and selected also the recently launched 'Shaftesbury' cast iron radiator to give them a choice on the day. Both radiators were ornate and very suitable for the period style setting.
Paladin offer a bespoke service including hand finishing radiators to compliment the style and colour of the intended room. For the Alan Titchmarsh Show, each radiator was carefully hand finished in pewter tones to fit the colour scheme chosen for the show. The St Paul was finished in hand antiqued pewter and the Shaftsbury in hand polished pewter finish. Each cast iron radiator was fitted with antique style valves to complete the look. The popular ‘St Paul’ style was the radiator finally chosen for the programme.
Paladin Radiators Managing Director Helen Proctor said, “We have a lot of experience of providing cast iron radiators for older properties, including well known ones like Number 1 London and Somerset House working with English Heritage, and are a preferred supplier for the National Trust. So we were delighted to meet the challenge of producing bespoke period radiators at very short notice for the Downton Abbey feature on Alan’s show.”
