OK, any ideas what type of radiator this is?

I have a client doing a minor basement remodel and they want to use this radiator (see photo) for a small bedroom. I found three in the EDR book that look pretty close, except the tubes are perpendicular to the ones shown. The more I look at it the less sense it's making to me and now, I just want to know what it is. Thoughts?

    wall hung

    it's a cast iron wall hung.

    They are nice. Wish I could get them more often.



    It can be hung as it is show, vertically, or if it has plugs can be re-worked to hand horizontally, it's really just a potat-O or pot-A-to choice.



    Always, ALWAYS make sure it is securely bolted into a structural STUD or into masonry. 
  • be careful

    Thanks for the post.

    I saw the pantry shelf units in the EDR book and wondered if it might be one of those; they seem to have the same kind of pipe connections.



    The heat load for the room and the capacity of the radiator are close enough that it should work OK, even mounted "sideways". The client even has the mounting hardware, so that's kind of novel. I won't have to Rube-Goldberg a set of brackets.



    Thanks for the input everyone.

    Find Out?

    I have some old American Radiator and Ideal Fitter books. If you still need help.
