Real cast iron radiators are a thing of beauty. But another thing they are is heavy!
If your cast iron radiator weighs over 100kg, you will need an additional piece of kit called a joining tool to connect each section of your radiator together.
Depending on the width of your cast iron order, the radiator may be split into 2 or more sections to ensure that it arrives safely.
This guide will show you step by step how to use the joining tool to assemble your new cast iron ready for installation.
But first, let’s answer a couple of your FAQs.
