I couldn’t find any make or model numbers on them. I’ve attached photos , it’s a long shot but if any storage rad experts out there and knows please help.

I was told by my local council for disposing of storage heaters that any made after 1973 SHOULDN'T contain asbestos.

Yeah that’s what I thought too - the flat is an old Victorian building in London and could easily be before that but not sure.

The style of it, I would think early 80's.

The older ones were fat dumpy things where the bricks were laid horizontally.

I did think they’re doing well to still be working if they are pre 1974 . The bricks are definitely vertical in these
