Reclaimed cast iron radiators are too heavy to be wall-mounted and need to be fitted with feet. Our vintage-style saddle feet and wall stay brackets are copied from antique originals and come in several sizes to fit most types of vintage and antique radiators. Cast iron radiators are very heavy and can do a lot of damage to your central heating system if not properly secured. Wall stays secure cast iron radiator to the wall, preventing it from falling forward if knocked. Normally, you need a pair of feet and one or two wall stays, depending on the size of the radiator. We have used two feet on our own 15 columns radiators but you might need an extra one or two for longer radiators. The brackets are adjustable; additionally, the thread can be cut to size for smaller radiators. Feet come in 3 sizes and wall stays in 2 sizes to accommodate most types of antique and vintage radiators (Princess and Duchess style, reclaimed hospital or school radiators...). Wall stays plate engraved with "EST. 1883", a nice vintage touch. The antiqued cast iron finish is ready to paint. If left untreated, all parts would eventually rust.

Selecting the correct size feet: You need to measure the diameter of round section that goes across the bottom or top the radiator; using this measurement, select the size of feet which will allow the radiator to fit in the cradle. Selecting the correct size and quantity of wall stays: We recommend one wall stay for every 10 sections of radiator - so a10 sections cast iron radiator would require one wall stay, but we'd recommend two wall stays for a 12 section radiator. To select the size, you need to consider the number of columns. Always err on the safe side and ask advice from your radiator installer before purchasing if you are unsure. If you happen to purchase the wrong size, we are always happy for you to return for a refund or an exchange.
