The short answer is, “yes!”, but let me explain why…
Radox may make you to think of a soothing bath full of muscle-relaxing bubbles but its also the name of a leading European radiator manufacturer and supplier. You might not be familiar with the name as you are with Stelrad or Myson for example but Radox have been supplying over 60,000 radiators per year to the UK since their inception in 1998.
Why have Radox remained “Under the radar”?
Until very recently, Radox Radiators supplied their product range to leading brand names who re-badged the products as their own. Now Radox have decided to go it alone and market their radiators and ladder rails under their own brand name in the UK.
This new independent decision brings certain advantages to customers:
- Improved and increased stocks throughout the extensive range within the UK
- improved value for money for the end user thanks to the removal of the “middle-man”
- Quality levels kept extremely high rather than governed by third parties need for higher profit margins
Radox believe no other manufacturer offer their range and quality of products and this is backed by their full 10 year guarantee on all chrome and painted radiators together with lifetime cover for their stainless steel radiators which are manufactured with marine grade 304 stainless steel.
Every Radox radiator in their range from a ladder rail to a designer radiator, is hand welded by one of their 100 fully trained welders and the quality of production is endorsed by Radox being certified to ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 by Bureau Veritas Quality International (BVQI) and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)
Why are Radox radiators such good quality
The image below shows an internal comparison between a typical mass-produced Eastern ladder rail and a Radox hand welded ladder rail after 3 months of use.
The difference is vast and perhaps explains why the majority of low-cost competitor radiators only come with a 12 month or perhaps at best a 2 year warranty.
Looking more closely at the image, you’ll notice that the rail ends of the Radox radiator are tapered to provide a better weld. Each rung is carefully TIG welded into place by hand which reduces the chance of pin-holes and provides a superior joint for the chroming/painting process. The radiator on the left is furnace welded which results in unwanted oxides within the joints.
Thanks to the quality of raw materials and the fully automated Chrome line which prevents acid penetration, internal rusting is eliminated.
Radox use a double-Nickel plating layer of between 35-40 microns prior to the final chrome layer or 2 microns. This brilliant chrome finish is also strong and has successfully tested to withstand 200 hours in a salt-spray environment.
Painted rails – white, anthracite etc – are fully sandblasted prior to painting which greatly increases paint adhesion and the paint used is Akzo Nobel which is one of the world’s highest quality paint manufacturers.
And as previously mentioned, Radox stainless steel radiators are produced using the finest quality marine grade 304 stainless steel with a highly polished finish.
Radox Radiators & the Environment
ISO 140001:2004 is an environmental management accreditation and one which Radox are proud to possess. Copper plating technology, which is used by most low-cost manufacturers in Asia and other parts of the world, produces harmful by-products including copper cyanide which has a devastating effect on our environment.
