It is necessary to consider that installation of heating appliances is rather complex work demanding professional approach. But if you, for one reason or another, have no opportunity to invite the expert, it is possible to try to establish bimetallic radiator by the hands.

It is required to you

  • - torque wrenches;
  • - tanks for water;
  • - construction level;
  • - perforator;
  • - pencil.


1. Find out diameter of the bringing pipes. Order mounting kit of the corresponding size.

2. Check set of delivery of bimetallic radiator. Have to enter it: - two adapters; - airoutlet valve; - stub; - adapter under Mayevsky's valve; - laying under stub and the adapter; - brackets.
