600 x 1800 radiator
good quality, nice and slim, works as you would expect.
Instructions for the mounting brackets could have neen a little clearer.

Poor finish bracket off-centre
I have to say Screwfix branch staff (Avonmouth) were pleasant and helpful on collection. That said, this is about the radiator itself.
On the star ratings - read the legend Screwfix provide: I can't rate higher based on what the stars supposedly mean.
The rad: I'm quite unimpressed so far.
Rad arrived with paint missing from one of the spigots, where the clip-on end plate had scraped it off - not picked up in the factory. On the rear, the paint is almost non-existent inside the fins (where you won't see if you're not looking carefully). Given the fins are spot-welded to the tubes, you have to wonder if this invites rust.
Wrong instruction sheet supplied, with wrong information about bracket distances and drill size.
Most importantly, middle bracket is offset by 15mm, because rad has an even number of tubes. No warning of this and hard to spot.
Happily, I measured from both ends. I bet many people don't and are baffled by why the middle bracket won't line up. Maybe there's a correct instruction sheet somewhere that I didn't get.
Overall the quality control seems very poor. I'll still have to paint the back inside the fins if I want it to last. Easier, though, than re-packing it, taking it back and making more holes in the wall for a different brand.
I will choose another brand next time.

UP TO DATE RADIATOR
Replacing rather old, unsightly radiator, hidden by a cover. This looks much better and will not need to be concealed. Appears robust.
