    I don't know... but just to be clear...

    1)You have a radiator and you want to run UFH from the radiator pipes...
    or
    2)You have UFH and you want to run a radiator from the UFH

    As I say, I don't know, but I'd be surprised if the answer to 2) is yes.
    I'd be less surprised if the answer to 1) is yes...

    I'm curious to see what the professionals here say... but you might want to clarify which way round it is.

    Regards,

    Cando

    No, A UFH setup would have been set for exact flow rates at the manifold and putting in a radiator mid circuit would cause issues. Plus the temperature of the radiator if it did work would be at the same temp as the UFH i.e low.

    If you are asking if you could run UFH from radiator pipes then yes it's doable with the correct manifold, pump and electrics although not simple. Remember the UFH has to be able to run the CH pump to supply the manifold.

    Id recommend electric towel radiator anyway. Still get dry towels when the Ch is off.

    Agree with this. A much simpler option
