WHY NOT MAKE ALL RADIATORS FROM ALUMINIUM?
Well, that would be a good idea, but there’s still not really a huge call for it in the UK market, despite it becoming a more popular and common manufacturing material.
We tend to like our radiators to retain their heat for a long period of time, but as quick as aluminium heats up, they are equally adept at cooling down.
Because of this, the UK consumer tends to opt for steel or cast iron – both of which retain their heat for much longer than aluminium.
That said, aluminium’s lightweight structure means it can be manipulated into a variety of shapes, quite readily, without affecting its strength.
So if you’re thinking of trying to get your hands on a T-Rex radiator or something even more unusual, then it may be worth looking into aluminium.
