What a con the free offer is! I clicked on the link at the time stated, completed my delivery details, submitted the form all in the space of less than one minute. I got the message that there was a server error, resubmitted the form successfully after a couple of tries, only to get the message that the freebies were all gone BUT I could purchase at a discount. No thanks, Radflek....I'll take my money elsewhere.

    Nearly all offers are limited to a certain number and once they have gone they have gone.  The server error was possibly down to it being overloaded by many other people trying to avail of the same offer.  Some people succeeded, you were unsuccessful.

    Que sera sera.

    It's the same every year.  The winners probably have their computer set up to auto-fill the information fields instantly

    Still fairly pointless, given that modern radiators only provide about 10% of their heat as radiant heat - given that less that half of the radiant heat would be directed to the wall behind the radiator, and that the product possibly reflects 95% of the radiant heat only where the actual sheet is and not above/below/side of, you are probably only saving 2-3% of heat output at best.  

    All of the test data is undertaken on walls without any insulation, and therefore the benefits are even lower/non-existent for the more than 50% of houses that do have external wall insulation. The website should be absolutely clear that any claims are based on solid uninsulated walls, but it's not.

    Not too bad if you can get them for free, but not worth paying for IMO.

    They  sat that the offer of  1000 freebies are sold out within 30 secs each year.

    Server error was probably because it was over loaded with people trying to access the site.
