Fitting Wall Stays To Cast Iron Radiators

Installing Cast Iron Radiators

Once purchasing your cast iron radiators, the next step is installing it. At UKAA, we recommend that radiator wall stays are fitted when installing cast iron radiators.

Also known as radiator wall ties or radiator brackets, installing cast iron radiator wall stays is important.

The radiator wall ties are designed to secure your radiator to the wall, preventing the risk of the radiator being pulled over. Our radiator brackets will also act as a protector to your pipe work.

Your radiator will have a certain amount of sections; if you have 10 sections, you will only need one radiator wall tie tTo safely hold it up against the wall. If your radiator has over 10 sections, you will need at least two radiator wall stays.

When fitting radiators wall stays, ensure they are installed centrally and near the top of the radiator, - this will give the stay ties the maximum strength and, stability, and also makes the wall stay less visible to the eye.

There is a rear mounted wall stay fitted to the radiator below but you cannot see it.

We have two radiator wall stay options available:

a) Rear Mounted -– this option means your radiator bracket is less visible, and is also more affordable. b) Front Mounted - creates a decorative feature to your room, and is available in colours to match your radiator or valves

Rear Mounted Wall Stays

When installing radiators, the rear mounted wall stays are fitted from the rear of the metal radiator and are not obviously visible from the front – a discreet option for a clean look

usually made of zinc or stainless steel.

The rear mounted radiator wall stay cannot be seen at first glance.

The radiator wall stay should be fitted near the top of the radiator for maximum strength, as it is designed to grab the back section of the radiator and secure it to the wall.
