    Think they call them thermolite blocks. Special fixings or just normal plugs?

    I've used these aircrete plugs before for Various jobs and they've been very good when I couldn't get a firm fixing in a soft block

    yes the new turbo rads don't come with plugs and screws. probably because of the many different types of wall requiring different fixings

    btw turbo rads are british made in south wales from british steel

    Turborad is our own brand, but is made for us by QRL, (Quinn radiators, formerly Barlo radiators) manufactured in sunny Newport.

    However, I am pretty sure that we have a huge stillage of the 10mm plugs and coach screws, so if you chat up your local branch or usual contact, you might get lucky and squirrel a few away!
