I ordered this princess short radiator as I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. It was made in a very timely manner and is absolutely amazing. Everyone who comes to the house comments on it
Iím so happy with it. Cast iron radiator centre gets a massive thumbs up from me and would highly recommend them

Lovely radiator, looks great in my dining room and exactly the look we wanted. Really good quality, be warned these are very heavy! Makes the room really really warm. Excellent delivery, emailed when despatched and then a local courier company contacted me to arrange delivery. Would not hesitate to order more from this company.

by Andrew Brechin on 8 January 2018

Very pleased with this - it has transformed my room and added a little bit of 'industrial chic' to my lounge. Longer to heat up than a standard rad, but the pay-off is that it remains hot, long after the heating has gone off. Planning to buy more, very happy.

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.

Bush Ends
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

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.

Lovely radiator

I ordered the Short Princess 2 column 560mm radiator painted in pewter and collected it to save delivery costs, as I lived nearby. It's worth visiting if you can, as the architectural yard they have is full of great stuff (I bought an oak coal skuttle as well as the radiator).

The style and finish are fantastic - it really looks good in my Art Deco furnished home.

Be prepared for how heavy the radiators are though! This was relatively small, at only 1 metre long, but was very tiring getting it up to the third floor flat where I live.

However, it is worth it. I had it installed yesterday and it looks so much better than the steel panel raditor it replaced. It throws off enough heat as well, thanks to the BTGU / size calculator provided by the website.

Excellent cast iron radiator

Have just ordered 8 of these in different sizes for my home - they are seriously heavy handsome pieces of kit. Really high quality and well finished (in gunmetal grey). All the accessories were also top quality - saved at least 50% on the items at the plumbers trade counter. Very good customer services. Highly recommend this company and product

Product & Support

Hello,

I'd just like to share my feedback from my recent order.

I was thoroughly impressed with both the product and the service I received from you guys. When I had technical questions about how to paint the radiators myself, or how to attach a wall stay, you were quick and happy to help me. When I also had a technical problem with one of our radiators, you quickly sent out a replacement part for free and this was really great to see - out of all the suppliers we've used during our house refurb, you've been by far the best to work with, so many thanks for that.

I'll be sure to order from you guys again when we need some more cast iron radiators.

Thanks again,
Peter
