Traditional radiator and heated towel rails

termosifone in ghisa In old houses to be renewed we still find them: they are the cast iron radiators; our parents are very loyal to the length that material is able to retain heat even after switching off the heating system.

However, they are heating elements subject to wear over time and especially very heavy, so awkward to remove from the wall to which are hooked in the case of cleaning of the same and of the support.
The cast iron radiators over the years have been replaced by modern radiators, innovative both for the materials used, and for the shapes and sizes.

While the cast iron has been replaced by aluminum or steel, with regard to the shape it is no longer standard, that is rectangular, but it assumes very different shapes from classical to the most strange, since they are not just heating elements anymore, but real piece of furniture.

The operation can also be mixed: water-filled radiators can be fitted with an electric heating element and a thermostat with a timer to turn on and turn off automatically.
The electric operation only radiators, are inadvisable due to high energy consumption, unless there is no other alternative.

Regarding the configuration, the radiator is composed of collectors and radiant tubes: the collectors may be layed horizontally or vertically, and are provided with sleeve for the connection to the heating. The radiant tubes are generally tubular in shape, horizontal or vertical, while in modern radiators they can also come as slats, grills or panels.

The classic radiators are attached to the wall with two or more attachment points: the distance from the wall is about 6 cm, the anchors can be made with dowel shelves, galvanized shelves or wall brackets.
While previously the aesthetic was not absolutely important, so much so that the radiators were placed under the windows, maybe hidden by curtains, thanks to the advent of technology it has gone from simple radiators heated furnishings, capable of heating and furnishing at the same time.

The state-of-the-art heated furnishings can then be fixed to the wall, but also a flag that is perpendicular to the wall, fixed to the floor by means of two pins or plates and wall mounting hardware with telescopic side. In this way the radiator also serves as a partition.
Alternatively, you can attach it to the floor and ceiling using hooks that hold the heating structure.
