Gold: Finish in Focus

Here at Rutland Radiators we offer our radiators, basin stands and heated towel rails in over 20 finishes. Alongside our most popular finishes, which include Polished Brass and Nickel are a number of more obscure finishes such as Gold.

Amongst these more unusual finishes is our range of finishes in Gold. Available in both an Antique finish and Brushed finish, Gold is the ultimate finish if you are trying to make a statement.

Is it real Gold?

The finish is achieved by plating the radiator. To do this the heated towel rail or basin stands in a tank of highly diluted Gold. To achieve the brushed effect, the item is plated in Nickel first, before being brushed and then plated again.

Being a plated finish, it benefits from not tarnishing. In general it does not react to the atmosphere or environment it is placed in. This makes it surprisingly practical for bathroom spaces.

Gold has declined in popularity over recent years. The Antique finish remains very popular with clients installing both traditional and contemporary luxurious bathrooms and spaces.

Interestingly, we have seen a growth in orders for for the Brushed finish. This is in part due to it’s effect of carefully balancing luxury and class with subtlety.

If you are interested in any other finish applied to one of our handmade towel warmers, radiators or basin stands, please do give us a call on 01252 790464.
