A Plain Radiator
 
This is one of those weighty rads. These are usually rescued from industrial buildings and are quite often referred to as hospital rads. They are sturdy things and very functional and are not difficult to install. If you are buying them in an unrestored condition I would recommend that you test them for leaks first. Some people worry about the compatibility of old rads into new systems and are concerned about the size of the connecting water pipes. All they need is reducing which is not difficult especially now that some companies are producing good components. We stock a range of brass fittings which are copied from originals. They are made by a company who is proud of the fact that they manufacture them in this country, (see stock page).
