Product description

Soho, a best seller that was conceived through the partnership with Ludovica+Roberto Palomba in 2008 with the idea of redesigning a shape consolidated by tradition, making it current and captivating, is available in a different version. Tubes, attentive to the market and always ready to look out for new solutions, has extended its range to make this aluminium radiator recyclable, with a linear shape that rhythmically articulates the space where it is installed, being even more versatile and suitable to all environments.
In 2020 Soho/electrical came to life, a minimalist and elegant radiator with high energy efficiency and really smart technology.
Soho/electrical is available with an on/off control to switch it on and off and manually adjust the temperature or else it can be programmed with a digital wireless thermostat. Alternatively, it can have TOUCH control with a bluetooth system that enables it to be controlled through a device, e.g. a smartphone, without needing to be touched.
Only apparently identical to its previous versions, the great change to Soho is therefore only in its most important aspect: its use.

Concept

The charm of the original lives on in this new design that releases the heat radiating element from its original technical appearance, creating a furnishing accessory ideal for contemporary spaces.

The creative concept plays with the essential lines and repeating modules. Minimalist elegance and aesthetic balance are the notes that define the Soho range, creating a link from the past to a present in perfect harmony with more contemporary concepts of interior design. The radiator is built with hot extrusion aluminium sections held together by a patented positioning and locking system. Soho is available in vertical and horizontal versions, with single and double columns, from 40 cms to 240 cms in height and between 17.6 cms and 72 cms wide.

A key basic feature of the model is its considerable water saving, about 75% less compared to a traditional tubular radiator with the same thermal output; this means Soho is fully entitled to join the category of environmentally sustainable products, which, in addition to guaranteeing low consumption, are made using completely recyclable materials.

Soho represents the perfect answer for low energy buildings (class A, class B and even passive buildings) as its extremely low water requirement and excellent heat response make it the most efficient system around, both in terms of comfort and cost containment.

The latest Soho evolution is the new bathroom version with a special handle which performs the function of heated towel rail and can be positioned freely at any radiator height. A range of thick chromed brass accessories is available with an optional hook supplied on request. Soho Bathroom Version is made entirely from recycled aluminium and it is available in 4 heights and 3 widths from 31.2 cm (perfect for small spaces) to 51.6 cm.

The chrome-plating range has been enlarged with special finishings in anodised aluminium, silver, titanium grey and black. Both vertical and horizontal radiators are available in single or double column versions. It can be connected to the central heating system using remote connection valves or with a special double 5 cm centred pitch fitting or a fitting with the same pitch as the traditional Tubes heated towel rail.

A fundamental characteristic of the model is its low water content, around 75% less than a traditional tubular radiator with the same thermal yield. This puts Soho fully into the environmentally friendly product category - as well as ensuring low energy consumption it is also made in totally recyclable materials.
