CAST IRON RADIATORS

Please note (Unlike many of our competitors) all our cast iron radiators are hand assembled in the UK to your specification, tested to conform to BS EN442-1 and BS EN442-2 and pressure tested to 8 BAR. All our cast radiators are guaranteed for 10 years for manufacturing defects.
After rigorous testing on system inhibitors, we recommend FERNOX products (www.fernox.com) for our radiators. Please contact us for further details.
Our assembly process listed below we believe is the best in the industry ensuring customer satisfaction.

Palletised Deliveries

Our palletised deliveries will be shipped by an independent haulage company using a HGV. When shipped using this method the haulage company will attempt to deliver pallets as close as possible to your main entrance, usually to the closest hard-standing area. The drivers are not contracted to remove items from the pallet, or to carry items into the customer’s property due to their insurance. Clients should warn the Company if there is restricted access, or gravelled driveways etc. 

Cast iron radiators and cast iron fireplaces are very heavy items and usually need 2 strong people to move them, the larger radiators may need more. 

The customer must make sure there is someone in the house on the agreed delivery date. We can arrange for the courier to call you 1 hour before delivery. Our standard delivery times are between 9am and 5pm for timed, and/or Saturday deliveries which can be arranged at an additional charge contact our office to arrange. The Company reserves the right to charge a redelivery fee should a redelivery be necessary. Cast iron radiators are very heavy, please ensure that there is sufficient manpower to unload the pallet.

 

THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS

The relevant number of sections is picked and assigned to your order.
Each section is individually given two coats of paint.
When dry the cast iron radiator is assembled.
The radiator is then pressure tested for 24 hours.
Once the pressure test is passed the cast iron radiator is given a final coat of paint and left to dry.
When completely dry the radiator goes through a final inspection and is wrapped and boxed ready for despatch. At this stage you will be contacted to agree a suitable delivery date.

DIMENSIONS

All our traditional radiators are individually hand cast and assembled, meaning lengths and widths of the radiators can vary slightly. We advise that you take delivery of your radiators before installing your pipework. Measurements given are a guide only. Unless otherwise specifically requested, radiators will be supplied bushed with ½ inch bushes.

PAINTING

Please be aware that colours presented online will vary between different monitors and that printed colours may vary slightly from the actual paint colour. If in doubt a visit to our showrooms is advised or we can arrange for a colour swatch to be sent free of charge.

Product Handling

In order to ensure the safe handling of your radiator please follow the guidelines below.Cast Iron Radiator Handling

Cast Iron Radiators are very heavy, you must ensure adequate manpower is available .  The most common cause of leaks is the strain on the gaskets when carrying the radiator. You must ensure that the radiator is only moved in the upright position once removed from the pallet to prevent flexing the seals.  The most common method is to support the radiator between the fins by using support bars at each end as illustrated below.
