I got one of those plastic radiators to install today and have noticed that they do not come with the expansion straps. Are they required for these type of radiators?

The straps that go from top to bottom of the radiator to stop it over expanding (I think). The old radiator I took out had them but it may be because the old one was a heavy steel one and was more prone to expansion.....or maybe it was just rooted and the straps were holding it together!!! All good, I got one on the new radiator anyway but don't think i will even need that.

now I know what you mean... I dont think ali radiators need them, they are soldered (welded?) together better these days.
