Our central heating cast iron radiators comply with UK &
EU Legislation EN442. This requires tests to determine a standard
heat output for each cast iron radiator which enables direct
comparison of the outputs of the various types of radiators.
Cast iron radiators are only suitable for installation on 'closed' circuit central heating systems where the system is filled with water and the water does not change unless the system is drained. If it is required to fix a radiator or towel rail on a system where the water is changed regularly, such as a domestic hot water circuit, which is called an 'open' circuit, different materials are needed for manufacture, such materials are brass or stainless steel.
Connections on column cast iron radiators are normally at the sides, often refered to as BOE, bottom opposite ends. Where the connections are at the side then irrespective of how the pipes are brought to the radiator, angle valves are normally used. Some of these radiators are supplied with 3/4" BSP female connections and bushes to reduce to 1/2" BSP female.
We can also provide a range of traditional radiator valves in polished brass, brushed brass and nickel to complement these reproduction cast iron radiators. Thermostatic traditional valves are also available. All our traditional radiator valves are available in angle pattern and come in pairs. Connections on central heating radiators are normally 1/2" BSP but some larger column radiators may be 3/4" BSP. Some of our traditional radiator valves available with the Apollo Firenze are 3/4" BSP.
Cast iron radiators are normally supplied pre assembled up to about ten sections. Where they are larger than this they are supplied with connecting nipples and gaskets for final assembly at the time of installation. A special tool is required to assemble them on site.
Cast iron radiators and column radiators can be very heavy. The weight of the radiator has to be taken into account at the time of delivery and when carrying out the installation, moving the radiator into position and carrying out assemby where necessary. Support of the radiator must also be considered in relation to its weight whether it is being supported on the wall or standing on the foor.
We have a large selection of designer radiators, towel warmers, heated towel rails available online but are unable to show everything available. If there is something you particularly require or cannot find it on our website please contact us for assistance.
