Geyser has this week fully re-launched its online selection of Bespoke Custom Colours for its range of Traditional Column Radiators.

Geyser has selected 16 of the colours best fitted to the UK interior styling.
High end photography showing each of the colours in the best way have been created. Geyser utilise the latest digital software which ensures when the images are shot the resultant photography is almost identical to how the actual colour looks to the naked eye.
All of the 16x colour selection is available to see in the Geyser showroom located in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

More Information About Chrome Radiators
Radiators in chrome offers reduced heat outputs by approx compared with painted models. So to put this in context if you had two radiators the same size – one finished in a silver power cost paint and one finished in chrome – the chrome model would offer 20% less heat than the painted model. Think of this like tin foil wrapped around the radiator. Chrome keeps the heat inside, for the same reasons you would wrap a joint in the oven inside tin foil – to keep the heat inside.
However even in light of this fact, chrome remains very popular in UK bathrooms. Due to this Geyser offer these miniature flat panel radiators in chrome as in small areas they offer enough heat. However Geyser don’t offer these flat panel chrome models in taller sizes (such as 1500mm or 1800mm high models). Why? They are not worth the investment compared with buying a painted models as the flat bars don’t hold a lot of water and chrome reduces by 20% so you’ll have a very inefficient radiator.
If a customer is looking for a taller chrome radiator Geyser advises you look at its “Circolo” range, which has much larger 40mm diamater bars so it offers a much higher outputs for larger rooms.
Geyser is proud to add the “Chime” from BISQUE to its heated towel rail range.
This cylindrical profile towel rail has sparkling appeal with tube shaped styling.
Cantilevered rails allow for even the plumpest towels to be easily slid on and off. Great for family bathrooms.
As this is made from mirror polished stainless steel you have a elegant bright outer finish and a high quality rust resistant base material which will last much longer than a chrome plated mild steel towel rail.

Geyser has launched a range of “Retro fit Flow Diverter” Accessories.
If you have a radiator without a flow diverter pre fitted inside (see below for more info on what this is) and you are having issues with heat distribution you can purchase this device which is fitted between the valve and your radiator, to create a flow diversion for you.
NOTE: We offer two models of this diverter:
One for TRVs (with a smaller overnut).
Over for Manual Valves (with a larger overnut).
The little rubber disc goes into the radiator and once the flow of water is started it will hit this disc inside the radiator to force the water up and over.
Over the years when customers have reported heat distribution issues, after fitting this device this has fixed the issue for them. The device will add approx 5mm to 10mm to your pipe centres overall.
You will only need x1 of these devices for each radiator and this should be fitted on the FLOW side (water inwards).
What is a flow diverter used for?
When you have a tall vertical radiator (ie 1 metre high or taller) sometimes there ca be an internal water flow issue which means the radiator is only hot across the bottom and up the outer L/R bars, but down the centre of the radiator can be cooler or have cold spots.
In essence the water will look for the quickest way out of a radiator. So the water comes in for example on the bottom left and then rushes straight across the bottom and out of the bottom right. Some water goes up the first and last bars but then there isn’t enough pressure to spread it evenly so all bars get hot.
Lots of radiators are pre fitted with a diverter which acts as a barrier inside the radiator, so once the water comes in on the left it forces ALL of the water up and over and ensures that the radiator gets evenly hot all over.
NOTE: The installation of a pre installed diverter is a judgment made by the manufacturer as not all radiators need them – it may just mean your system has an issue where other people won’t.
This device enables you to retro fit a diverter into any radiator having heat distribution issues.
