    PRODUCT WATCH: The Mercury radiator

    The Mercury by Castrads represents one of the most flawlessly engineered cast iron radiator of our time. Darren Tothill, consultant from the brand, explains…

    The Mercury radiator range by Castrads is four years in the making. It’s been developed in house and inspired by automotive surface design, and is the perfect statement piece for contemporary and classic properties alike.

    With delicate V-detailing on crisp columns, elegantly tapered feet and flawlessly blended top curves, Mercury represents the pinnacle of cast iron radiator design. It’s our more versatile range, available in two, three, four, and six-column variants and a number of different heights.

    The Mercury 2 Column, available in three heights, is only 70mm deep, making it perfect for hard to heat places like hallways, behind doors, and stair landings.

    The Mercury 3 Column, available in four heights, has a relatively narrow depth of 101mm. The 3 Column is ideal for retaining a high heat output while taking up minimal space.

    The Mercury 4 Column is also available in four heights. At 140mm deep, this size is great in large rooms where you require a lot of heat.

    The Mercury 6 Column is 360mm in height and 215mm in depth. It was designed to fit perfectly under windows and provide a lot of heat.

    What’s so special about Mercury?

    First and foremost, Mercury is the largest range of cast iron column radiators in the world. It’s versatility and design lends itself to any home heating project. Secondly, it’s completely ours. It was designed from start to finish in house, using cutting edge technology. Our dedicated team 3D printed prototypes and used the most advanced design software to ensure an efficient and beautiful radiator.

    We use stress and heat output tests and heat flow simulations to ensure that everything we design is modelled for optimal performance. The Mercury is as classic and beautifully designed as it’s Victorian-era predecessors, with all of the efficiency and accuracy of today’s technology.

    The Mercury can be finished in a stunning range of bare metal finishes or paint from Little Greene, Farrow & Ball and Benjamin Moore.

    Our curated collection of accessories, including valves, shrouds and base plates and wall stays, can be finished in a range of colours and will complete the look.

    All of our radiators are tested in accordance with EN442 by BSRIA to ensure that we offer the highest standard of quality.
