First established in 1889 as a mechanical company Zehnder followed an innovation path that led to the invention of the first steel tube radiator in 1930. More practical and affordable than cast iron radiators the now classic Charleston took Europe by storm.
Today Zehnder continues to hold a strong reputation as the industry innovator, pioneering state-of-the-art technology and combining their manufacturing expertise with a deep understanding of interior environments to create products that are as efficient as they are aesthetically desirable. Now a multifaceted industrial group with factories spread across Europe, Zhender continues to manufacture its radiator ranges in Germany.
While catering to man’s need for climate control, Zhender’s focus on innovation continues with investments in better manufacturing technologies and environmentally sustainable practices.
The original tubular radiator is an efficient all-rounder that inspires through form, function and comfort. The element construction gives Zehnder Charleston its discrete appearance and timeless elegance. Charleston provides comfortable radiant heat and a highly flexible base to cater for any space. It is also available in almost any colour from the Zehnder colour chart as well as custom finishes and varnished raw steel. Additionally for maximum convenience Charleston offers flexible options for the location of inlet and outlet valves.
Bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms or living areas, there is always the perfect radiator to fit the a specific room, space or style. Zehnder is the only manufacturer that allows you to be very choosy. With over 700 colours and finishes, and angled, curved or slanted custom shapes your imagination may prove the only limitation.
At Zehnder, the subject of design is firmly anchored in the company philosophy. As a pioneer in the sector the company gave birth to the first bathroom radiator and then the first towel radiator leading to major improvement in living comfort. Expect more to come.
