Accidental burning is a serious risk in the home. Young children playing around the house can easily come into contact with hot radiators and end up scolding their delicate skin. Being part of such a vulnerable age group, your little ones need to be protected as much as possible from these incidents. Using a radiator cover is a great way to block access to the appliance and preventing the risk of accidental burning.

How do you measure for a radiator cover?
Start by measuring the width, length, and height of your radiator and then allow for a 3-4cm gap all around.
Next, check the internal dimensions of your chosen model, ensuring that you have accommodated the gap so that the cover doesn’t fit tightly over your radiator.
Finally, check that the external dimensions of the radiator cover will fit in your space, i.e. won’t be so large that they are obstructed by a windowsill or wall.
Does the cover come assembled?
Your radiator cover is self-assembly and will arrive flat packed; however, putting it together is a simple and straightforward process with instructions included.
I can’t find my instruction manual, what do I do?
Simply get in touch and one of our friendly team members will be happy to email you a copy of the instructions for your model. You can use our online chat or call us on 01604 537900, the team are available from Mon to Fri 9am-5pm.
Do you make made to measure radiator covers?
We only offer readymade “standard” radiator covers, however, these often work with most radiators and so many of our customers find that they don’t need a bespoke option. Check the specs tab to see the internal and external dimensions of your chosen radiator cover.
Do you make tall radiator covers?
We currently have two models of radiator covers with extra height (a small and large version) which have additional height dimensions to accommodate taller appliances.
I’ve bought an unfinished radiator cover, what paint should I use?
We always recommend starting with a water-based primer or undercoat to give you a smooth and even foundation for your main colour. As the covers are made from sturdy MDF it is best to choose a wood paint, however, you can use other types of paint provided that you have used a primer coat first.
How do I attach my radiator cover to the wall?
Your radiator cover comes with an L shaped bracket – simply attach this to the wall using the provided screws and then fix the radiator cover to the bracket.
Why should I use a radiator cover?
There are several reasons as to why radiator covers are great investments. Firstly, they’re an easy and cost-effective way of disguising an old-fashioned or unattractive radiator, giving your space an instant facelift.
Additionally, positioning a cabinet around your radiator is a great safety measure for your home as it stops young children and pets from being able to touch its hot surface.
Can you put a radiator cover in the bathroom?
Bathrooms are naturally humid spaces with lots of moisture created by baths and showers. As radiator covers are made from MDF and either painted or foil wrapped, we do not recommend using them in the bathroom due to the risk of moisture damage.
Can a radiator cover be used on an electric heater or storage heater?
Our radiator covers are designed for use with the type of radiators connected to your central heating system (often called hot water containers/baseboard style radiators).
Will using a radiator cover cause my radiator to overheat?
There’s no need to worry about a radiator cover causing your appliance to overheat. Our covers are designed to allow hot air to continue circulating around the room as opposed to getting trapped inside the cabinet.
Are radiator covers safe?
Absolutely! Our radiator covers are made from durable MDF – a material which doesn’t conduct heat – and can be fixed to your wall for enhanced rigidity and sturdiness, meaning that they cannot be accidentally pulled over.
