Aquadart Shower Enclosures

We have added the entire Aquadart Shower collection to the webiste. Aquadart have everything you could need for a new shower that adds that special something to your bathroom.
They produce four different ranges to suit your needs; Venturi 6, Venturi 8, Inline and Wetrooms. Each range offers something different and unique.
The Aquadart Venturi 6 offers a semi-frameless enclosure by mixing high quality materials with simple stylish designs. This particular range also uses 6mm toughened safety glass that is coated in Aquadarts’ Clean & Clear™ glass protection system.
The Aquadart Venturi 8 is similar to the Venturi 6 range but it adds that extra something by using 8mm glass. It also adds another luxury feature with their soft stop buffers which take the door to a cushioned stop.
The Aquadart Inline range is a sophisticated minimalist shower that is the closest thing to a frame less enclosure that you can get.  They produce 2 sided, 3 sided and Recess enclosures with solid brass hinges and fixings for a truly striking shower.
Available in a wide range of sizes, Aquadarts’ wetrooms are made from 8mm toughened safety glass and also features Aquadarts’ Clean & Clear™ glass protection system.  Aquadart have also introduced a new smoked glass option which comes in two sizes but this is set to increase to more and possibly be introduced into the other three Aquadart ranges in the future.
To complete the Aquadart range they also produce Bathscreens and manufacture Shower trays and that are made proudly in Britain
All Aquadart products are treated with their innovative Clean & Clear™ Easy Clean Glass Treatment. Clean & Clear™ is a glass protection system that is innovative as we all being highly beneficial. What it does is create a protective barrier which is applied to the glass, this barrier then forms a “non-stick” surface. What this does is resists and reduces the lime scale build-up and water sports. The advantage of this is it hinders bacteria growth for a more hygienic environment. The biggest advantage is that it reduces the need to clean by half.

Radiator BTU Calculator / Radiator Size Calculator

When it comes to buying a new radiator one of the most important factors is the heat output and making sure it’s adequate enough for the room. Having a radiator that is too big will end up costing more money to run and having one that is too small will mean the room won’t heat up sufficiently. To help you find the right radiator output for each room we have a handy calculator that will give you the desired BTU/Watt output needed.

What is BTU?
After reading the introduction and throughout the article you will notice one term “BTU”. Not everyone knows what it stands for or even means so I will give a brief description as to what it means so that using the BTU Calculator will be easier and the results will make sense.

BTU stands for British thermal unit is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 pound (0.454 kg) of liquid water by 1 °F (0.56 °C) at a constant pressure of one atmosphere. 

Using the Radiator Size Calculator:
To determine this, the BTU Calculator will look at range of factors which are; What Type of Room it is, if the house is exposed or sheltered, what window glazing you have and how big the room is. Once all this information has been put it the BTU Calculator will then give a BTU output that is optimal for that room. The BTU Calculator will give two results the lowest and Highest BTU outputs needed to heat the room to a comfortable temperature. This means that there is leeway so anything in-between those two results will be perfectly fine for the room. 

Armed with this information you can then find the right radiator for your house.

Can Radiators Be Classed As Art?

I am writing this article to hopefully shed some light on a brand and emerging products within the radiator market. Those products are Designer Radiators.

The majority of radiators are generic and lack any colour or flair to them, after looking for quite some time I came across a manufacturer that produced radiators that can be argued as being works of art. The only problem is not many people know of them or know that there are such products out on the market.
The aim of this article is to help inform people that they don’t have to purchase a generic, bland and lifeless radiator. You can get something that has style and charisma, thus making you a more informed consumer.

Importance of a Radiator that reflects who you are:
In our modern life it has become important to stand out as an individual and that is also present in our homes. We no longer want the same generic items; we want something that shows off who we are and what our personality is like.  So with this article we will talk about a particular manufacture that has sought to create stylish pieces of art that also heat the home.

Up until now home heating has consisted of very generic and bland looking radiators but now with over 5 years of design and thought behind them Reina Radiators have created something special. Functional Art.

Who are Reina Radiators?                                                                                           
Reina have been designing radiators for the best part of a decade. The key mantra has been "Radiators are no longer a functional concept; heating has become the fantasy of the creator" and with this they set out to create radiators that stand out. A mission they have accomplished with their diverse range.

There are a range of Reina Radiators; Aluminium, Designer, Stainless Steel, Column and even electric Radiators. But at the heart of these radiators is something special, something that lets you add that little extra to your home. The hope is that these Reina Radiators inspire you to look at each piece of furniture in a room as art and not just as an object to be used.

Aluminium Radiators have quite a few advantages; The Aluminium construct makes them lightweight while being tough and they have incredible heat conducting properties.

One key benefit to having an aluminium radiator is that they hold a fifth of the water content a traditional radiator does and will produce around 15% more heat. This makes them some of the most efficient radiators on the market.

These are the Reina Radiators you have if you want to make a statement, they have wide selections that are perfect for any room and they have a nice range of designer towel rails. Not only are these good looking radiators but Reina wanted to make sure they also worked as efficiently as possible so you can use them like any normal radiator with the advantage of it not looking like a bland normal radiator.

Reina Radiators have produced 6 traditionally styled radiators. These will fit perfectly into a bathroom or bedroom and add that air of sophistication and grandeur to a room.

These radiators have been designed to inspire you with ideas of decorating the room around them. The Stainless Steel Reina Radiators are hand made with the best quality material you can get, the philosophy behind this range has been “Radiators are Art”, this can be seen throughout the Reina Radiators product range. The whole range also comes with a 25 year guarantee.
