7\" tall cast iron baseboard ratings

you did`nt say who the manufacturer was, but it may be buried from carpet or whatever, if you took 3.26 per L.ft you should be really close.<BR><BR>Dave

    7\"tall cast iron baseboard

    I'll be damned I have Dan's E.D.R book but I can't seem to find cast iron baseboard ratings in it. Go figure! Can anyone tell me what to expect from 7" tall and 9" tall baseboard? The best I can find is Weil McLain @ 9 3/4" or Burnham @ 9 7/8" tall.

    Uh, Dave?

    If you have carpet deep enough to take two inches off a 9-inch CI baseboard, I am going to have to do an intervention here.


    Deep pile shag again? And that disco ball? Has to go.

  • Brad,

    again, the one liner, I have seen many carpet and underlay(smooth-edge), that hinders measurements.
    Even saw one yesterday where the guy actually cut the 7/8" hardwood floor around the rads feet, made a nightmare for a TRV install.

    Unfortunately I didn't even look as I was almost sure I would find them in one of my books.

    I guess I'll just have to go back and look. Has anyone seen cast baseboard in Dan's E.D.R book

    All in all

    I would take the baseboard at 7/9ths (or more exact fractional height) of a known baseboard. Burnham Baseray is 3.4 SF per LF so if 9.875 inches high, if exactly 7 inches, 0.708 times 3.4 would be 2.41 SF per LF.

    Absent better information, that is what I would use. I mean, they both have an inlet, a depth and an outlet. What is left is finned height.

    There comes a time, Dave

    when re-flooring a place, that you simply have to remove the old flooring...

    Has anyone seen the cat lately?
