I'm thinking of replacing some old (20+years) radiators but the sizes
are proving a bit of a problem. I can easily find replacements for two
of them, 600mm X 1400mm and 600mm X 1100mm single panel, but there's a
also a single panel 600mm X 650mm and a double panel 600mm X 750mm.
All the radiators I've found so far come in 100mm steps. Are there
radiators that size out there somewhere or am I going to have to get
under the floorboards and alter the plumbing?
I am not a plumber therefore the following is only my DIY understanding. As
far as I know rads only come in 100mm length steps now. The alternative to
altering the under-floor pipe(s) is to fit a slightly smaller size radiator
and then make up the size difference with either a fixed length radiator
extension, a telescopic rad valve extension, or a straight lock shield
