Premium Paint: Ardenbrite Metallic Paint for Cast Iron Radiators
Ardenbrite paint has been the most popular traditional colour for Cast Iron Radiators since 1927. Simply the finest metallic paint available, British made Ardenbrite was the historic paint you will find on cast iron radiators in most stately homes. Its patented finish gives a lustre and real metallic coating that is just unique.
When you visit historic national trust homes or other great British houses and see traditional radiators, you are almost certainly looking at Ardenbrite painted cast iron radiators as restoration experts generally insist on this rage of original colours in the most historic settings as it remains the original and the best. Indeed, Ardenbrite Green Gold Paint is the only paint sanctioned by restoration bodies as an alternative to gold leafing.
These traditional paint colours may have been copied by many modern Cast Iron Radiator manufacturers in an effort to drive down prices - but these remain the original paint finish for metallic cast iron radiators. Ardenbrite Paint is by special order and will add at least 2 days to the finishing of your cast iron radiators. There is a small extra charge when Ardenbrie paint is used.
