The idea behind the glass radiator
The original glass radiator was designed and made by Rene Coulon in 1937 for an exhibition. The original design was fabricated up until 1952 when production stopped. Production was started again, but the design changed using a clear glass technology manufactured by Saint Gobain Glass and the brand name of SGG Thermovit Elegance was used for the product range. Thermovit technology is a clear film technology in glass that is used for making many different types of glass that is used for domestic and commercial heated windows and heated floors.
The Glass Radiator Company first imported them in 2007, and registered the domain name of www.glassradiators.co.uk. Since then more radiator products using glass have been introduced: solid colours: images printed on glass and marble; and a range of unusual radiators in their own right. Most ranges are now available in electric and plumbed.
The Elegance stopped being manufactured by Saint Gobain in 2016 and The Glass Radiator Company have a new product called the grc Clear which is a clear glass radiator made by different manufacturer, still to the standard Elegance sizes.
