Gong! are unique copper and brass finished radiators that are available in highly polished brass or in a choice of unique etched finishes using specialised patinating techniques. These patinations are created by hand by highly skilled metalworkers in London’s East End using a variety of hot working techniques and colour compounds depending on the finish required.
These techniques produce an incredibly silky and tactile finish with beautiful organic patterns and colours but Gong! is not for the control freaks out there as our artisans are not able to dictate the final finish of the radiator and each beautiful Gong will be completely different.
Lead time: All Gong! radiators are by special order in approximately 8 weeks. Special order means that an order cannot be cancelled once manufacturing has commenced.
Finishes:As every radiator is finished by hand, every beautiful Gong is different in tone and pattern and there can be huge variations. (For a safer bet, then we do also offer standardised colours and finishes on this flat panel design of radiator – please see Supermirror, Blackboard and Outline ranges.) There is a choice of finishes available:
1. Brassy Knoll – a patinated brass – granite grey base with sea green highlights;
2. Mighty Magmas – a patinated copper – an earthy pallet of burnt orange and rose tones;
3. Midnight Caller – a patinated brass – aggregate greys washed with a night sky blue;
4. Dusky Moodstress – a patinated brass – dark chocolate brown with warm golden hints;
5. Rusty – a patinated mild steel sealed with hardwax oil – autumnal tones; or
6. Brassy – a highly polished brass finish.
Design: Bespoke sizes are also available – please ask for a quote. The Gong! is a modular aluminium high output radiator with a separate brass or copper front fascia panel. This means that the radiator has a low surface temperature and acts as a convector heater and emits heat from the space at the top of the radiator between the wall and the rear of the radiator as opposed to the front panel. There is a 25mm gap from wall to rear of radiator on all Blackboard models.
Optional towel rails: These are available on request – please ask for more information.
Material: Made of aluminium with a copper or brass front fascia panel.
Delivery: We offer delivery to most addresses on the UK mainland (excluding some remote areas) [MORE INFORMATION].
Fixings: Radiators are supplied with the necessary fixings i.e. wall bracket, plugs, bushes and vents. ½”connections are supplied as standard. Screws are not supplied.
Depth: 50mm or 95mm
Projection from the wall: 50mm deep models = 75mm / 95mm deep models = 120mm (measurements exclude towel rails)
Valve connections: Underside valve connections as standard. Hidden thermostatic valves are available for an extra £262 exc VAT using our Hinge and Bracket system. Side valve connections are also available for extra charge. Please contact our sales team to ensure the neatest installation.
Valves and finishing touches: These not included as there is now so much choice available. See our Valves page for valves and accessories to complete the look.
Pipe centre measurements: Approximate pipe centres can be provided if you wish to install your pipework in advance of receiving your radiator.
Manufacturer’s guarantee: 5 year manufacturer’s guarantee against manufacturing defects.
Heat outputs: These are shown at operating temperatures of 90/70/20 (Dt60°c). To obtain Dt50°c outputs, multiply the outputs shown by 0.789.
Water treatment: The manufacturer’s guarantee will only be valid if your radiators are installed in accordance with British Standards. This means that, on completion of installation, the system should be properly flushed and filled to remove debris and minimise the presence of solid particles and chemical residues, which may cause corrosion and damage within the system. Corrosion inhibitor should be used in accordance with British Standards and should take into account the particular metals within the system.
