JOURNAL 002 - English Heating Products For The USA

Rutland Radiators (USA) offers buyers a range of benefits, but first and foremost is the fact that products sold by ourselves are designed specifically for installation in the USA.

Historically, clients looking to install English manufactured heating products (such as cast iron radiators or heated towel rails) faced challenges in relation to the compatibility of these products with the standard fittings and arrangements expected in the USA - notably regarding thread sizes. 

In England nearly all plumbing fittings revolve around the “BSP” or “British Standard Pipe” sizing system. However, in the USA, the majority of fittings are supplied in an “NPT” or “National Pipe Thread” configuration. This small adjustment means that often English manufactured products can be challenging to install and cause complications onsite. Rutland Radiators (USA) ensures all products being supplied to the USA are supplied with the NPT thread to remove these complications and challenges.

Aside from this detail, Rutland Radiators (USA) acknowledges that standards and requirements differ in the USA - notably with regards to lead content in products. To ensure compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SWDA), heating products from Rutland Radiators (USA) contain a weighted lead average of less than 0.25% in accordance with the Act. 

In addition to compliance with regulations in the United States, products from Rutland Radiators (USA) maintain their European safety certification which is generally considered to be the highest standard for radiators found in any marketplace in the world.
