Compact Radiators

Howarth Timber & Building Supplies’ range of high-performance compact radiators is the perfect solution to warming up any room in your house.

Compact radiators are mainly popular due to their neat, compact and simple design, compact radiators will fit in with traditional or modern interiors. They are different to standard radiators, as they have top grilles and side panels. The radiators that we offer, come in three forms:

Type 11 Radiator. A Single Panel with a Single Convector: These come in various heights from 300mm up to 750mm. The most commonly used compact radiator, as they are the cheapest, the Type 11 radiator is best suited for use in small rooms such as box bedrooms or offices.


Type 21 Radiator. Double Panel with a Single Convector: These are available from 400mm in height, up to 750mm in height and include both a front and a back panel, with a single convector that is positioned in the middle. These are great for small to medium-sized rooms, as the double panels offer more heat than the single panel option.

Type 22 Radiator. Double Panel with Double Convector: These radiators are available in heights from 300mm to 750mm, and have both a back and a front panel, as well as two convectors which are great for creating larger heat outputs, without the need for a larger radiator.

Pros of Compact Radiators:

  • They sit close to the wall and are a “neat” radiator that looks attractive and modern.
  • The style makes them ideal for drying clothing, as heat rises through the grilles on top.

Cons of Compact Radiators:

  • As they are so close to the wall, and because the top is one long grille, compact radiators can be difficult to dust, no matter which style you opt for.
  • Compact Radiators cannot be bent to fit below bay windows.
