Can I fit Rotarad anywhere?
Rotarad is designed to be fitted to a flat surface wall. It is not suitable for uneven stone walls.
When fitting under windows or radiator shelves requires a 50mm-75mm space above the radiator to operate the release brackets. 
When fitting to a tiled or block wall we recommend using masking tape on the wall to mark for drilling.

What type of pipe fitting does Rotarad support?
Rotarad supports both Compression joints and Union Joints. If you are unsure which type you require please contact us.

When I am using Rotarad to move the radiator is there any chance it will leak?
No! When fitted correctly the Rotarad connectors do not leak and all connectors are 100% leak tested. 

How often should I clean my Radiators?
We recommend deep cleaning at least once a year before you use them in the Autumn season, as having radiators unused over the summer months causes large accumulations of dust.
