Our story

Home / Our story

Innovation, curiosity, integrity.

At Castrads we have craftsmanship in our DNA. We strive for perfection in everything we produce, and nothing leaves our sight without rigorous and unrivalled quality assurance.

Family-owned and operated since 2006

Castrads is a multi-generational family business.

Castrads, established in England, manufactures custom-built, custom-finished radiators as well as controls and fittings that are suitable for both steam and hydronic heating systems. Inspired by the past but always looking to the future, our products combine classic form and enduring functionality with the most up-to-date technology.

Founded by Chris Baylis in 2006, Castrads has since been taken over by his son Nick Baylis. Nick has built upon the strong foundations laid by his father with the help of his brother, Adam. Adam now runs UK operations while Nick develops Castrads North America in NYC.

Beyond the family, Castrads has been built by a team of highly talented and committed individuals, many of whom have been with us for over ten years. We’re passionate about what we do, and we do it well.

Research & Development

Every aspect of our product design is handled by our talented in‐house design team, allowing us to continually innovate and improve.

Everything we create is digitally modelled to ensure optimal performance via stress tests, heat output tests, and simulations of heat flow within a specific room layout.

We take the design and development of these Victorian‐era products into the 21st Century by leveraging the accuracy and efficiency of today’s technology.

Our radiators are tested in accordance with EN442 by BSRIA in the UK. 

Research-led innovation 

As members of BSRIA and the Manufacturers’ Association of Radiators and Convectors (MARC), we seek to raise standards and compliance across the industry. MARC is a subdivision of the Energy & Utilities Alliance

People Before Profit

Castrads is a business built with people at its core.

Castrads is built on people; from those that entrust us with keeping their homes warm to those that build our radiators. We never forget that and it’s why treating our customers, staff and contractors with utmost respect is core business to us. We take pride in the training that our employees receive and the high standards to which they’re held. We think that we offer some of the best customer service in the industry and our customers think so too.

We have a motto of People Before Profit which neatly encapsulates our pledge to treat our teams with respect, to pay them as well as possible and to offer flexible working to meet the demands of family life. We’re proud to adhere to the Living Wage, ensuring the people that make us who we are take home a fair deal.

Two-Person Deliveries

Across New York City

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that our cast iron radiators are very heavy, weighing anything up to 500 lbs. That’s why, within New York City, we offer a two man delivery service.

Radiators are delivered to your property at a designated time, and placed into position. Our teams will gladly take radiators upstairs too for an additional $40 per radiator.
