Kudox Premium Type 22 Double Panel Double Convector Radiator White 500x800
Itâs difficult to do a review on a radiator. I fitted it and it gets hot when the heating is on! Here are some observations; It is packaged well with good protection. So as long as the cardboard protection is intact the radiator will be undamaged when you unpack it. The âfoam corner packingsâ and bubble wrap are useful for standing the radiator on rather than the carpet or wooden floor thus protecting both the radiator and the floor. It comes with standard radiator brackets, fittings and the vent plugs. This is my second Kudox radiator I have fitted, on both I found it quite difficult to remove the transit plugs in the four holes (stuck fast with spray paint). It says use a screwdriver - all screwdrivers I have are not big enough thus I have had to use pump pliers (or similar) to remove the plugs. The general dimensions given in the Screwfix description could be better however zip over to the Kudox website and you can download a PDF with detailed dimensions. Screwfix can you include this on the description page please?
The radiator I replaced had no noticeable temperature drop across the inlet & outlet. Once I put this Kudox radiator in there was a noticeable drop enabling balancing. So good performance straight away you could say.
Only had the radiator installed a short while so cannot give a reliability rating so have put it middle of road. I have given the Value a 5 merely because it is a good price.

Excellent value for a rad with high heat output and super offer with free valves.

Great improvement over my old radiators, more heat with smaller size.
Only comment is the plastic runners, that interface between the wall mounting brackets can break, unless you lower the radiator onto them very gently.

Ordered six radiators, excellent delivery. Rads looked good when fitted.One went rusty on bottom seam in less than a year. Contacted screwfix who were brilliant, sending a replacement next day. Other rads fine - perhaps just one dodgy one. Well done screwfix.
