How to fit our radiator covers
Glass radiator covers a so easy to install. With a simple hooking mechanism that allows the cover to simply ‘sit’ on top of the radiator itself, you can ‘fit’ it in under a minute to transform your room. Not many interior design projects can be completed so quickly – or have as big an effect on your room.
The easy-install hooks mean you can move each radiator cover around different rooms too (as long as the radiators are the right size) and mix things up a bit.
Safer heating for your home
Our toughened glass radiator covers actually make your radiators safer too. The covers have rounded edges so, though not a massive danger usually, it means you couldn’t knock your head on a sharp radiator corner, should you slip on one of the kid’s toy cars while tidying up.
More practically, they actually keep the front of the radiator cooler when you’ve fired the heating up to ‘Nuclear’ for those cold-snap nights. Plus, Glass Radiator Covers are pretty practical. The flat glass surface can be kept pristine with a simple duster and some glass clearer – believe me, I’ve cleaned a fair few in my time!
Won’t a cover stop my radiator…radiating?
Here’s some science to help. There’s no real loss of heat when you fit one of our radiator glass covers. A common misconception is that radiators just radiate heat from the big flat surface – but, if you stand next to a radiator in a very unscientific experiment, you’ll notice you can only feel the heat pushing out for about six inches.
The way a radiator actually works is through convection. Air passes over the surface of the radiator and rises, pushing the cold air in the room down to be heated by the radiator. The air needs this movement to heat the room. They also protect then front of the original radiator, especially in the kid’s room where an accidental chip in the radiator paint can cause rust spots and such like. Though not the of the world, repainting a radiator is no fun.
The great thing about a glass radiator cover is the ability to change it as the seasons come and go. Take a look at our full range to see designs that are ideal for spring and summer – to turn your radiator space into a cooling feature.
