Walney supply for the renovation of Argrennan House - Tuesday, November 14th, 2006

Walney Radiators is proud to be associated with the major renovations at Argrennan House, having supplied a number of traditional cast iron products for the property.

Argrennan House is an A-listed building based in Kirkcudbright, Dumfries, Scotland. Built in 1672, it is a major landmark in the area and is currently being converted into a health and wellness retreat, which will cost the owner, Patrick Flannagan in excess of £1.5 million and take approximately two years to complete. Patrick comments, “There’s been a huge amount of preparation involved in the refurb project, so it is important that we have a full understanding of requirements from all our suppliers. The service we received from Walney has been second to none, the radiators are fantastic, and they were approved by Historic Scotland without any problems whatsoever – which made the wholeprocess very easy.”

The Cast Iron products supplied to Argrennan House are the most famous of the Walney range, as Sara Hale, Marketing Manager at the company explains, “The traditional cast iron radiators have been associated with the Walney name for over thirty years, and are increasingly popular at the moment. The Victoria model was the product chosen for Argrennan House, a product which is very flexible, as it is available in nine different formats. There are a further four products in our cast iron range.”

Dave Thompson, the Consulting Engineer for the project was very keen to use the Walney product. He explains why,“After discussions with the National Trust Architectural Advisor, I decided that the Walney Victoria Radiator was the best product on the market for this project, as it was most in-keeping with the era of the house. Despite looking extremely traditional, they actually work under a state-of-the-art comfort system, whereby hidden controls separate from the radiators allow the heating to be completely programmable by the owner. The radiators have therefore given us total flexibility”

Since its establishment, Walney has provided radiators and heated towel rails to thousands of homes and businesses across the UK. As well as their successful cast iron range, there is also a wide selection of contemporary styles, as Sara explains, “Wewanted to put together acollection of contemporary radiators that would set a benchmark, and I think we’ve definitely achieved that. Our range offers excellent choice as well as value for money, so everyone, whether it be an Architect, Builder, Specifier or member of the public, can get a fantastic look without spending a fortune.”
