Radiators are hot when in use, and as such, present a risk of burns to users on prolonged contact.
The temperature of a radiator is dependent on the temperature of the system water, as set by the system installer or end user. Installers and users should ensure that those who come in to close proximity to hot radiators are aware of the risks of burns. Installers and users should take all necessary steps to minimise the risk of burns. If the risk is significant, consideration should be given to installing low-temperature radiators, or to placing guards in front of radiators.
For the correct installation of radiators it is essential that the fixing of the radiator is carried out in such a way that it is suitable for intended use AND predictable misuse. A number of elements need to be taken into consideration including fixing method used to secure the radiator to the wall, the type and condition of the wall itself, and any additional potential forces or weights, prior to finalising installation.
IN ALL CASES IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT A SUITABLY QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL INSTALLER OR SIMILAR TRADESPERSON CARRIES OUT THE INSTALLATION.
PLEASE NOTE: The fixing materials provided are only intended for installation on walls made of solid wood, bricks, concrete or on timber frame stud walls where the fixing is in to the timber. All walls being considered should have no more than a maximum of 3 mm wall finishing. For walls made of other materials, for example hollow bricks, please consult your installer or specialist supplier. ONCE AGAIN, IF YOU ARE UNSURE, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT A SUITABLY QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL INSTALLER OR SIMILAR TRADESPERSON CARRIES OUT THE INSTALLATION.
