Q Can you Manufacture bespoke/custom sizes of Radiator Covers?

A Yes we can do made to measure bespoke sizes on the radiator covers.

Q Do the radiator covers reduce heat at all?

A Radiators are designed to heat the air in the room using convection to transfer heat from the radiators to the surrounding air. They do this by drawing cool air in at the bottom, warming the air as it passes over the radiator fins, and discharging the heated air at the top. The panels don't stop this process.

(We had an Engineer with 34yrs experience the radiators she is talking about is a Part L building regulated it is low water content & design to convect heat upwards pulling from the rear of the panel towards the ceiling where it mixes with cooler air drops towards the ground & repeats the cycle that's why they are suited to work behind sofas, units, beds etc.......)

Q What are Premier Colours?

A Premier Colours are a range of what our experience has told us are 16 current and fashionable shades. Theres 1 Black, 1 White and 14 other visual feasts to choose from. We run every Premier Paint colour at least twice a week, so once you Glass has been cut, polished and cleaned, then passed our stringent quality control it will be carefully transported to the spray room on the relevant day. This means we are making exactly the item you want, and keeping production costs down (as we only have to load up the spray machine once). Low production costs mean these Premier coloured Splashbacks and radiator covers are the lowest cost route if you're on a budget and need to keep costs as low as possible. What is Colour Matching, and what can you colour match?

We have a few thousand Crown and Dulux suggestions for you here and we can match any Crown Dulux or RAL (RAL is a colour matching system for paints) if required. All you need to do is give us the exact paint name you've seen, including any numbers and we’ll use our Paint mixing machine to create the color you want. We may be able to match other leading brands as well, so do get in touch if you've got your heart set on something not already on our site.

Q Can I really upload my own image, picture or any design?

A You certainly can! Using our Click n Print software. If you already have something you want, we can put it on any of our Glass products. Whether that be 1 chopping board, a set of Placemats, a matching table runner, or even a huge Radiator cover. As well as being able to have a truly unique one-off focal point in your own home or workplace, these are super popular as gifts too. Things to note, The bigger your required item is, the better quality the image needs to be. Try it here first, (and please do get in touch if you need any help). Once you've entered the size and uploaded your design, we’ll show you a preview. You can then crop it however you want. There's 3 options to choose from;

Exact fit - Move the highlighted square over the section you want.
Flexible Fit - We’ll let you stretch or squeeze in a little more of your chosen area on the image - Only a little bit though because if you stretch it, or try to squeeze too much in, we know it won't look right.
Fit by Premier Artist - Click on this button if you need something much more specific. There's a small artwork fee added meaning our dedicated graphic designer will be in touch to get the exact image you want. Eg Zoomed in, Zoomed out, or a specific start and finish point for your image.
