“We wanted a radiator which was not only in keeping with the heritage of the buildings, but which also offered a sense of style and modernism. After evaluating a number of different products we all agreed that the Zehnder Multicolumn was the best solution.”  Rob Ferry, Associate Director at BDP, M&E Consultants

Zehnder Charleston, the original multi-column radiator, offers comfortable warmth, efficiency, and timeless design. With continuous development since 1930, it's a perfect fusion of traditional and modern technology. The unique construction of the Zehnder Charleston opens up unlimited possibilities for custom shapes and sizes making a wide range of models available.

“As architects for the Town Hall Extension we were pleased with the selection of the Zehnder Multicolumn. Aside from meeting its objective of retaining the architectural heritage of the building the Zehnder Multicolumn gave us excellent levels of flexibility.”

Matt Pickering, Architect at Ian Simpson Architects
