Ensure the floor surface is level.
Know the wall material and measure for wall stays before the radiator is installed - it will make installation much easier. See our wall stay installation guide for more.
Tall radiators require a flow diverter inserted at the bottom of the radiator to boost the circulation of water up to the top. It arrives ready installed in the radiator but it is essential that the radiator is installed so that the flow enters the same end as the diverter.
If you are having issues finding the position of the inlet diverter, you can use a pen inserted into each corner in turn until you find where it stops approximately 2" in.
All wall brackets are typically positioned two or three sections in from either end (please see diagram). With radiators over 20 sections, a third or fourth mall bracket may be required to support the weight.
TIP: When securing the brackets to the radiator wrap masking tape around your screwdriver to reduce the risk of damaging the paint finish. If using solid wall brackets use a rubber mallet to insert the brackets to prevent damaging the paint finish.
It is essential that all brackets are level to ensure a vertical alignment for connecting the pipework.
