Hi, I have just purchased a 1200mm long radiator shelf, simple brackets and slots behind the rad. It keeps bending/lifting in the middle when the rad is on. How do i stop this? I dont want to put heavy items on it. Should i put a timber 'splint' underneath so it will resist lifting in the middle?

I live in a double storey house with carpeted floors and stairs. The last year my top stair makes an awful squeak and is getting louder and sagging. As it is carpeted I cant see what is wrong with it. Can someone let me know what they think might be wrong with the stair and how big a job is it to repair as I am worried about the carpet having to be lifted. Thanks

I have radiators fixed onto external walls with no cavity wall insulation and a lot of heat is lost through the walls. I am considering getting some radiator shelves made to contain the heat inside the rooms and to double up as extra storage. Do I need a special wood to handle the heat of the radiators? Will it be safe to use the shelves to store books or will it be too hot? Does the wood have to have a special treatment to handle the constant heat?
