Bring character to your home
Whether you are restoring a period home or creating a traditional look from scratch, the elegant style of Aston school radiators will be a perfect fit. Taller and slimmer than the Ledbury and Telford cast-iron designs, the Aston still brings the heat. Its large heat capacity makes it great for bigger rooms with high ceilings, but will also function excellently in cosier spaces.
Traditional cast iron radiators have come a long way and are now extremely efficient, strong and built to last. The Aston comes with a range of accessories and fittings. You can also make it unique to you with up to 40 different sections, a choice of 4 column options and 26 RAL Colours or a Polished finish to choose from.
Cast Iron handling and joining
Due to their weight, Cast Iron Radiators will be delivered on pallets to the nearest hard standing (driveway or yard) and appropriate assistance should be on hand to help move them into a safe dry storage area. They can be very heavy so careful handling is needed to avoid injury. Sectional radiators should always be carried vertically, not stretcher style, this avoids putting stress on the section joins.
These traditional radiators will often be supplied in smaller numbers of joined sections (referred to as batteries) requiring joining on-site to make the complete radiator. We will supply an appropriate joining tool (known as a key) on a sale or return basis, once your radiators are fitted you can return the key in the postage-paid box, if you wish to retain the key, we can then invoice you for the cost
The joining process is not complicated but it does need to be carried out correctly. Ask your installer to check that they have experience in installing and joining cast iron radiators and if they have the appropriate joining tools let us know and we will not send the loan key. This video shows you the way we recommend our radiators should be joined.
Please note, that after the manufacturing process, these radiators are pressure tested and cleaned inside with water, they may, therefore, contain a small amount of dirty water and swarf. If handling on a finished floor, ensure that adequate protective material is in place before working on the radiators.

Choosing the right material
Traditional cast iron radiators have been the staple material in period homes and schools since the Victorian age. Their dense heavy structure takes time to reach optimal temperature but remains hot long after the central heating is turned off - perfect for cold, drafty period homes. If you are looking to achieve a more traditional aesthetic, or statement piece, cast iron radiators are ideal – as many ranges are available in a selection of RAL colours and special finishes and offer colour palettes typical of Georgian or Edwardian properties. There are few cast iron foundries producing radiators in Europe, and as such they are more expensive than most radiator types - it is always important to check that they are going to be easy to fit and that the whole system is designed to get the best performance out of them.
This material is heavy, so installation needs to be considered, especially as there may be the need to join radiators onsite, working with an installer with a good level of experience in cast iron will make the process and final installation a lot easier.

The BTU rate of a radiator is how much heat the radiator will emit, and is there to help you decide if a radiator is the correct size for your room or not. It’s important to know how much heat your room needs in order for your system to work efficiently.
