Polished Cast Iron Radiators

Paladin's hand polished cast iron radiators process involves each section of your cast iron radiator being hand polished to produce a handsome highly polished look. Paladin hand polish each section using traditional methods in their Workshop for the best possible effect. The Paladin traditional polishing service polishes the cast iron radiator the traditional way by leaving the back area of the cast iron radiator unpolished, as this area is difficult to reach for care.


The Paladin full polishing service will polish your cast iron radiator at the back areas, perfect if both sides of your polished radiator are on show.


Our industrial look was created to show the best of raw cast iron, firstly we smooth the surfaces then we capture some of the natural patinas under a coat of clear lacquer. A truly inspiring ‘Manhattan loft’ look for interiors where original unadulterated design comes first.
