MOUNTING

picture Mounting Tips:
  1. Lay out the desired position of the radiator on the wall. Determine the locations of solid wall members (wall studs, bracing, etc.). Mark the positions for the mounting brackets, noting that each bracket should fit in the center of the space between adjacent radiator tubes. Note: All of the brackets supplied with the radiator should be used, half as top supports and half as bottom supports.
  2. Attach all of the bracket sleeves (A) to solid wall members, using the appropriate mounting fastener (B) (by others)
  3. Position mounting bracket cylinders (C) between adjacent radiator (D) tubes, so that the cylinders (C) will line up with the bracket sleeves (A), mounted on the wall.
  4. Mount the radiator so that it tilts towards the condensate return at a rate of 1/16" per foot of radiator length.
