    Hello, can anyone tell me if there is a difference between Stelrad Softlines and Stelrad Compact radiators - if there is a difference what is it.

    I am thinking of getting some for my house and am wondering which to buy.

    The difference is the grills. The softlines have a little curve to them where the compacts are flat.

    I wouldn’t worry too much as every stelrad I have ordered recently have turned up damaged.

    Many thanks. As the compact is cheaper than the slimline I will go with the Stelrad compact.

    Really? Can’t say I’ve had any problems. Ive even had some shipped to me that somehow turned up intact

    I just ordered a stelrad and it was damaged, chipped all on the corners. Stunk like a wet dog too with soggy cardboard. No plastic corner protection, just a bit of soggy card and polythene lol. Paint was all bobbly along one edge and holed along another, bad quality which I never expected, the rest of my big stelrads are fine, but they are old stock ones...

    Can I ask where you ordered from?

    It may be worth contacting Stelrad, it may be a counterfeit item.

    Nothing to do with stelrad mate. They sub out the delivery. That’s the issue.

    I won't mention the company just yet, but it's a big online shop, the actual delivery came from Wolseley though, so I'd have thought they wouldn't be selling hooky rads, though you never know!

    Stedrad package the rads though, the issue was lack of corner protection, plus the paint is rubbish

    I’ve hd some recently from what I’m guessing is the same company. The radiators were fine but the delivery was woeful.
