    Hi all,

    I bought a designer/vertical radiator which came without brackets not realising how tricky it might be to get the correct brackets.

    Can anyone advise on which brackets are required for this radiator?

    Many thanks!

  6. No brackets :cautious: Any installation instructions or packaging,looking for a clue.

    Do an ebay search for 'vertical designer column radiator cup brackets'

    Thanks very much all of you for the replies guys as i was totally lost!

    I purchased the Cup brackets before but they were 55mm wide rather than 50mm which i couldn't find but was told to use the clamp type brackets SFK mentioned.

    I'm going to have a look in B&Q to see if i can confirm the radiator type.

    How many fixings will i require?? as the radiator is a fair weight!

    Muggles your ones could be an option if they would fit correctly? :)

    No box, instructions or any branding on the radiator sure makes it a bit more difficult!

    Dcmg,
    Assuming yours is a Aviva radiator, When I do a google search for the following words I see the instructions of how to use the hangers I suggested.
    acova instructions
    Note that I found the Aviva hangers hard to instal, but have worked well since fitting. There is also a video showing different 'hook' hangers that look easier.

    Either way here is link to the acova hangers and how they are installed.

    https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&s...7DxQQFghMMAE&usg=AOvVaw1cUIt5Qvpdrx2cEKIa4Ee8

    My radiator (2 column tall narrow) came with 4 hangers. The link shows others need 6.
    I put them near, but not at, four corners of radiator.

    Like all radiators, hard part is ensuring the screws to hold these to wall are secure.
