Excellent radiators, at competetive prices, and amazing turnaround / deliveryby Barney on 20 October 2017
Bought an initial order of 5 rads, so impressed decided to go ahead and buy another 15 plus Valves for the House. Despite the size of the order they hit the target date. They also make use of great logistics firm Pallet Plus where I live) for delivery who were in communication about delivery day and times all the way until they arrived. Great service all the way from start to end.by Anonymous on 18 June 2017
Great product. Beautifully finished and cast perfectly. Plumbers fitting them very impressed with the quality.
* Height is for foot section from floor to top of radiator.
† All lengths approximate and include to bush ends - please allow 4% tolerance.
‡ Price for standard Black Primer finish, other finishes available at extra cost.
Standard finish to all cast iron radiators is a cellulose based BLACK primer.
The lead time from order placed to despatch for all radiator orders will be shown at checkout a. We will obviously ship sooner if order complete.
We can also supply this cast radiator ready painted/top coated in an authentic colour for only £4.50 + VAT per section.
The following exclusive colours are available:
As the radiators are hand assembled, all dimensions are approximate. We therefore advise that pipework should only be put in place once the radiator has been delivered.
All bush ends/caps will only be hand tight to allow customers to interchange if on a gravity fed heating system & will need fitting correctly when installed with PTFE etc.
Accessories & Bleed Valves
All Fittings (Valves, Wall stays, Shrouds etc) ordered will be placed in a bag or box placed on top of the top radiator. Air Vents/bleed valves will be in an SEALED ORANGE BAG with a bright yellow sticker stating 'Bleed Valves Enclosed'.If you are only receiving bleed valves these will be placed in the SEALED ORANGE BAG inside the top radiator. You MUST check it's content upon delivery & report any missing items immediately.

All bush ends/caps for your cast iron radiators will only be hand tight to allow customers to interchange if on a gravity fed heating system and will need fitting correctly when installed with PTFE tape.
A common cause of leaks is over tightening of the valve tails into the bush ends of the cast iron radiator. Over tightening will crack the bush. When fitting the valve tail in to the bush turn it finger tight then using a spanner turn it until there is only moderate resistance. Using a 4” spanner it is difficult to over tighten. A thread sealant must be applied to the radiator end caps and to the valve tail threads to get a water tight seal. LSX sealant available at all plumbers’ merchants is recommended. PTFE tape is an acceptable alternative. The torque from an 8” adjustable spanner will be sufficient to create a good seal.
All valves and air vents/bleed valves to be fitted with LSX sealant or PTFE tape.
No caustic/corrosive/acidic plumbing compounds or liquids are to be used on or in any part of our radiators, our valves or connections including aggressive flushing agents. If required, the system should be flushed with clean water only. The water in the system must be neutralised correctly following the use of any compounds etc if required using appropriate crystals or similar. If caustic and/or corrosive compounds (liquid or other) have been introduced into the system resulting in subsequent damage to seals/gaskets, any guarantee offered will be invalid. When a chemical cleanser is used it must be thoroughly flushed from the system. We recommend the use of Fernox F5 for power flushing and F1 rust inhibitor. Unlike other chemicals these products are not acid based and should not affect seals. After treatments the water should be checked for a neutral PH between 7 – 8. System design, flushing and dosing must be in accordance with BS 5449, 1990, BS EN 12828:2003 and BS 7593.
Following this procedure the system must be closed with a sufficient corrosion inhibitor suitable for the water quantity in your system. Dosing tools should be used to ensure the minimum correct levels of inhibitor are present at all times to prevent corrosion and should take into account the particular metals within the system. Appropriate inhibitor should be used in conjunction with manufacturer’s instructions and appropriate quantities must be used for the water content of the system.
We always advise you to wait for your cast iron radiators to be onsite before working out pipe work and pipe centres widths. This is because cast iron is not an exact product and because each radiator is hand assembled there will always be slight discrepancies as indicated on each radiator page in the lengths of same style & size radiators.
However, we appreciate that occasionally some prep work may need to be carried out prior to your order arriving onsite and that approximate pipe centre measurements may be required for first fix purposes.
Therefore, and strictly as a guide only, we would say for the approximate pipe centres for each cast iron radiator to add approx 90mm/3.5” to the overall length shown on the Specification tab. E.g. if the length indicated for a radiator is approximately 950mm then the approximate pipe centres will 1040mm & so on.
For the approximate measurement off the skirting board or wall if no skirting is used to the Pipe Centre we suggest half the depth of the cast iron radiator + 10mm as a minimum.
For the approximate ‘outside valve to outside valve measurement’ (the minimum measurement to be able to operate the valves freely) you should add approx 150mm/6.0” to the length indicated for each radiator in the Specification tab. E.g. if the length indicated for a radiator is 950mm then the approximate measurement from the outside of one valve to the outside of the opposite valve will be 1100mm.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE ABOVE MEASUREMENTS SHOULD BE USED AS A GUIDE ONLY
DELIVERY LEAD TIMES - Lead times may need to be revised periodically without notice to meet demand at busy times, but we will always do our utmost to keep to stated times.
All radiator pallet deliveries are made on a maximun 7.5t Lorry with tail lift to kerb side only or nearest hard standing and are based on a 'Book In & Signed For' All Day service (9.00 a.m. - 5.00 p.m. - Week days only).

RED ROUTES & RESTRICTIVE PARKING - Please note drivers are unable to park on double yellow or red lines due to the risk of a parking ticket.
ACCESS - Please inform us if there are any access restrictions at your delivery point (such as 7.5T weight restrictions or height restricted bridges).
If you require a 'Dedicated Day' (working week day) for delivery to ensure you have help to hand you must indicate this in the message box at checkout. Please note that this may delay delivery slightly. This will still be a kerb side only or nearest hard standing service. For Saturday delivery, there will be an additional charges on top of the standard delivery charge quoted if this service is available.
Care should be taken when removing radiator(s) from the pallet on delivery. Radiators should be lifted off and NOT dragged/pulled as this will result in paintwork being damaged. When removed from the pallet, all radiators must be carried in an upright position to prevent damaged to joints.
If any items are deemed to be missing from any order, we must be contacted immediately (not longer than 2 days from receipt) via email. Failure to do so will result in additional items supplied being charged to the customer.

Really love these products and highly recommended.
Review by: A Parker9 Column 330mm radiator
Thought this might look too big and industrial, but looks amazing under a little window in my daughter's bedroom. She sits on it and looks out of the window. Perfect. Really helpful service on the phone too.
Review by: JMCBeautiful radiators!
Purchased 4 of these as part of a larger order totalling over £7000. They are solid pieces of kit, well made, stylish and rather lovely chose anthracite grey - they will suit our Victorian home perfectly. The Engineers fitting them have also commented on their quality, and also said they were great to fit. An excellent service and by comparison to other quotes for similar product, represent excellent value for money. The Satin Nickel thermostatic Valves are also lovely and look well with these radiators. I am delighted with my purchases from the Cast Iron Radiator company and would recommend them to anyone needing new radiators.
