What is the biggest challenge in working with cast iron radiator systems as an expert installer?

“The biggest challenge in working with cast iron radiators is the weight of the radiators.  Cast iron radiators are extremely heavy, but also very fragile.  They can exceed a thousand pounds at times.  Getting them into people’s structures will often take a certain amount of ingenuity and specialized equipment.  When installing radiators into multi-million dollar finished homes, a team has to do it without damaging anything, and specialized lifting equipment for hoisting may be needed for the event. The crews generally have to be in good physical condition to be able to move the cast iron rads and get them into place.   We take great pride in the fact that over the years we have moved thousands of radiators safely.”
