Handling Your Cast Iron Radiator Delivery

All deliveries are kerbside deliveries. Our delivery companies will not be able to assist with the lifting of any cast iron radiators into your property. The radiators will arrive wrapped and/or strapped to a pallet to ensure their safety during transit. Please ensure that you take the time to inspect your radiator on delivery. For all own brand and Carron radiators, you have 24 hours to report any missing items or damages. For Arroll radiators, there is a 20 minute window in which you must report any issues to us.

With every radiator purchased from us, touch up paint will be included. The only exclusions to this are antiqued, highlight and polished finishes (Any radiator which is finished by hand). This is typically either wrapped to the pallet, attached to the pallet, wrapped to the radiator or attached to the radiator. Sometimes it will be in an envelope, other times the goods may be in a box. Radiators will come with some general instructions attached to them, often alongside this box.

Cast iron radiators are heavy! Against each radiator on our site we state the dry weight and the wet weight. The "dry weight" is the weight of the radiator when empty, this is the weight you need to handle at the time of delivery, when removing it from the pallet and moving it into position. The "wet weight" is the overall weight of the radiator once fitted and filled with water from your heating system. You will generally require two or more people to safely handle, move and position your radiators. We recommend that you have enough suitably able people on hand to take delivery of your order and to move the products into position.

Unloading

When lifting your cast iron radiators off of the delivery pallet, you must manoeuvre the radiator from its laid flat position straight into an upright position. Avoid holding the radiators flat as this can put a strain on the gaskets between each joined section.

Carrying

Never be tempted to lift a cast iron radiator on your own, or to drag it across any floor surface into position as this will result in strain on the water-tight seals and has the potential to cause leaks. Carrying cast iron radiators is made easier by preparing two very simple carry handles from some old wood, they shouldn't be any wider than shoulder width. Simply slide the wooden carry handles between the sections at each end of the radiator, bend those knees and lift! Be aware of the weight you are about to lift and always observe proper lifting and handling practices, ensuring health and safety measures are followed.

Joining Your Cast Iron Radiator

Cast iron radiators longer than 1200mm in length will be delivered in "blocks", this is simply due to the weight and size, so the sections can more easily be moved into buildings, around corners and up stairways. Once in position, the sectional blocks can be joined using the supplied nipples, gaskets and joining key.

Joining keys can be purchased with the radiator and most are returnable for a full refund.We recommend having the cast iron radiator in its destination room before the assembly. Ensure that the "blocks" of radiators are placed on a clean, flat & stable surface before attempting to join the radiator together.
