Walney Revolutionises The Radiator - July 16th, 2007

Walney UK Limited, the supplier of high quality designer radiators, has announced that it has been given UK distribution rights of the Adacto range of products.

Conceived in Italy, the Adacto range is a new and unique concept. Built using a variety of tiles in different shapes, colours and finishes, the customer has complete control over the design of a radiator, producing their very own work of art. Alternatively, if the customer needs some inspiration, they can browse or order from an existing ‘gallery’ of designs.

“The Adacto range is extremely versatile,” says Sara Hale, marketing manager at Walney. “The flexible concept means that a Adacto radiator will suit any architecture and furnishing. With this product, radiators are no longer something to be hidden away in a corner – they can provide a real focal point of the room.

“Furthermore, every stage of the radiators’ production has been studied to ensure minimal ecological impact – all the materials used in the manufacture are recyclable, so as well as looking great, they are kind to the environment too.”

The radiators are available in various sizes, ranging from 500mm – 2400mm high and from 200mm wide. Thanks to the aluminium construction and the patented cover system, the radiators offer substantial heat output when compared with other designer radiators. Installation couldn’t be simpler as its flexible hose system attaches directly onto the valves.

“The uniqueness of this range is of instant appeal to both designers and the discerning home owner,” says Hale. “We’re already experiencing a huge amount of interest in the products – I have no doubt that Adacto is the future of radiator design.”

Typical costs will fall between £450 and £1,500 depending on design. For more information or a brochure call 0870 733 0011.

Walney supply for the renovation of Argrennan House - 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.”
