Choosing cast iron radiators for your heating system need not be a daunting project. We are on hand via telephone 01492 573738 or email email@example.com for all enquiries. We take you step by step through the extensive choices you have in radiator and fittings style and the technical aspects of installation. We can help you with the BTU calculations required for each room and the size of radiator you require for each space. A specification sheet is provided, upon request, for all pipe work measurements required for installation.
All dimensions provided are subject to manufacturers tolerances and as each cast iron radiator is custom built there might be slight variances in the sizes listed. In certain circumstances due to the weight, size of radiator required, space availability or stairway entrance, a cast iron radiator can be delivered in 2 or more parts with a joining tool for construction upon site, this can be discussed with your requirements.
Custom Built and Pressure Tested Ready for Installation:
Each order is custom built to specification and delivered ready for installation. We recommend radiators be on site before your pipe work is completed. Upon request a specification sheet is provided with all measurements required for installation of necessary pipe work. Most cast iron radiators are supplied with 1/2 inch connections as standard (We have the option of 3/4 inch on enquiry) Valve connections are bottom opposite end as standard, top end connections are available upon request.
All radiators are pressure tested to 6 Bar but recommend a working pressure of no more than 2.5 Bar.
Outputs are listed in Watts and BTU (British Thermal Units) with a Delta (Æ)t of 50°C. Watts x 3.412=BTU/h. We quote our heat output efficiency at Æt of 50°C as this is the average working temperature required. We provide our 10 Year Manufacturer Guarantee for extra peace of mind.
Cast iron radiators are for use on closed, indirect central heating systems (sealed systems) only, they are not suitable for installation on open hot water system circuits. Upon completion of the installation the entire system must be thoroughly cleaned and flushed to remove debris and flux residues etc. If a chemical cleanser is used it must be thoroughly flushed from the system. Following this procedure the system must be closed with a good eminence water treatment to prevent corrosion. We recommend the use of Fernox water treatments. System design, flushing and dosing must be in accordance with BS 5449, 1990, BS EN 12828: 2003 and BS 7593.
We strongly discourage the use of a water softener on the heating system as this treatment can cause problems with the seals. It is important to note that failure to observe these requirements will render the guarantee on the products void. Corrosion inhibitor must be used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and recommendations and should take into account the particular metals within the system.
