Our cast iron radiators are a class apart. With superior materials and unique finishes, our products are not mass produced, one‐size‐fits‐all items; these are real quality pieces hand‐built here in Manchester by passionate and proud engineers.
Yet, with so much choice available, you may not know where to begin when selecting and ordering your new radiator from Castrads.
That’s why we’ve put together 5 simple steps to help you. And if you have any questions at any stage, please feel free to call us on 0161 439 9350, or email us at [email protected] , and we’ll be sure to answer them.
First, decide where you’d like to place the radiator in your home. Usually, a radiator is positioned in the coldest part of a room to combat draughts, which is why cast iron radiators work so well when placed under windows.
Next, you must calculate how much heat you require from your new radiator. You should consult a heating engineer, or use one of our heat calculators. You can also use our online panel radiator calculator to find out how much heat is being emitted from your current radiator.
Now that you know what you need, you can browse our extensive range of cast iron radiators on our website . To help with your selection, order free samples and product cards to compare and contrast styles and finishes with your current decor, or try our interactive radiator builder to help visualise the finished article in your home.
Visit one of our showrooms, where you’ll be able to browse our product range and get a sense of the scale and style of your chosen radiator, chat with our friendly and knowledgeable staff who will be happy to answer any and all of your questions, and enjoy some very nice coffee too.
Before finalising your order, you must make sure the radiator will fit into the available space, and that it will provide enough heat.
Phone or email and speak with one of the team to receive a fully dimensioned quote, or return to the online builder tool to double check the dimensions.
We build our radiators section by section, and when we add sections it results in a longer radiator with a higher level of heat output. It’s important to note that we must allow 90mm on either end of the radiator to accommodate the valves.
Now you are ready to place your order and when you do, request the pipe centre dimensions so that the plumber is able to position the pipes prior to the radiator being delivered.
