These are excellent rads, fitted twice.

True, much better construction than the supposedly better stelrad's.
Thanks.

Do they put the price up when giving the free valves?

As been waiting to get one. For a few months but looks like I'm only going to save £2-3 overall.

Either way a saving is good.

Have sime radiator heat

I've been looking at £80 one to go down for a few months, I paid £65 for same one last year without TRV and lockshield.
Replaced every radiator in my previous house with these, rate them highly and the free TRV does the job nicely.
hey shadey, do i need a gas safe engineer to replace radiators or can a plumber do this? i don't know if replacing the radiators will require someone who understands central heating as they may need to reset the boiler or something like that? i am thinking of replacing radiators for a system with a combination boiler.

Do it yourself, you may need a lift with the rad onto the wall brackets.
Great post. Need 18 rads in total, most of which will be these types. Anyone know where I can get vertical rads that are not just for styling. Actually want them to give proper heat. Was thinking of going for vertical ones in the style of the ones in this deal but I don't think they look good in vertical.
Nice spot, thanks OP

Of course, if you're in an older house you may have imperial sized radiators (inches) and be coverting to these metric (millimetres). If this is the case, you'll need to fit expanding tails and refit the radiator brackets.

Then again, maybe you're lucky and already have metric sized radiators

Are the brackets generally a standard width apart, I can remember changing one in the bathroom years ago and it was painful because of this

this is too big a job for me. i would rather pay someone else to do it, but from your answer, it means that i won't need to get a gas safe engineer to do it

i didn't know there are imperial and metric radiators. i was going to measure their size and expected that to match one from screwfix. thanks for pointing this out. i hope it will be obviously different, the two different types of radiators.
Thank you very much was about to order from b&q a d then this came up
Are these more efficient that the old type from 20 years ago.
i would be swapping a doubly for a do
i have a problem with a bit of sludge in the bottom of one of mine, I've treated the system a few times and took radiator off and given it a good whack with a rubber mallet while flushing a nod whilst it's ok I still think it could be better.
the plus size look a bit less bulky but are not available near me

Doubles have more output than same-sized singles; convectors have more output than non-convectors; double convectors have more output than single convectors; dense convectors have more output than sparse convectors. Look at the data sheets.

Search for high output vertical radiators.

I don't think "efficiency" is a word that means anything regarding wet central heating radiators. If your problem is that your radiator isn't getting hot enough, first, check your boiler temp is set correctly, secondly, try to balance the flow across the whole system by turning the flow down on radiators closer to the boiler by adjusting the lockshield valve. This will equalise the flow to all the radiators.

That's all been done, problem is the radiator isn't as hot at the bottom as it could be , hence I've flushed the system etc.
I'd read modern radiators were more effective, are you a plumber

If the outlet pipe is hotter than areas at the bottom of the radiator then it is filled with sludge; if not, then there is insufficient water flow through the radiator which should be fixable by balancing the system. If you mean "have I done extensive plumbing work" then the answer is "yes", but if you mean "am I paid to do plumbing work as a profession" then the answer is "no".

Yes pipe is hotter ,I've had system balanced I think radiator is about rotten
