Basics of Radiator Enclosures

Our radiator enclosures use all three types of heating to deliver greatest possible comfort, highest possible heating efficiency.

Convection moves currents of heated air throughout the room. Warm air expands and moves upward; heavier cold air replaces it. Radiator enclosures from Beautiful Radiators .com use convection to circulate air directly to the room’s comfort zone.

Conduction is heat transmission using a conductor. Transfer occurs where a warm object heats a cooler one that’s in direct contact with it. Radiator enclosures from Beautiful Radiators .com precisely control conduction, protecting people and pets from radiator burns. Yet the tops of the radiator covers are warm – warm enough, that they work wonderfully as food warmers in many upscale kitchens and dining rooms.

This idea came to our attention when a long-term customer ordered radiator covers for her dining room that were 3” deeper than what was needed to enclose the radiators. When we asked her about the extra-deep enclosure, she told us that the top of her radiator covers in the kitchen worked beautifully to keep foods warm, and she wanted the same feature in her dining room!

Radiation is heat waves traveling from a warm object to a cooler one without making contact. Heating is direct. Heated objects emit warmth in the form of warming rays called radiation heat waves. Radiator enclosures from Beautiful Radiators .com maximize the warmth from heat waves.

Problem:
Exposed Radiators
Solution:
Our Radiator Covers
A hot water radiator or steam radiator detracts from the appearance of the room. Radiator covers transform a hot water radiator or steam radiator into fine furniture that can often function as shelving, book casing or a display area.
A steam radiator or hot water radiator allows heat loss through absorption to outside walls. Radiator covers conserve heat, preventing outside wall absorption and directing heat energy where it’s needed.
Radiators let heat rise directly to the ceiling. Radiator covers increase comfort by circulating warm air directly into the comfort zone of the room.  Radiator covers also help prevent drafty areas and “cold spots.”
A steam radiator or hot water radiator deposits airborne dust and dirt on wallcoverings and draperies. Radiator covers protect your fine draperies and wallcoverings.
Exposed radiators can burn:  temperatures of an uncovered steam radiator or hot water radiator can exceed 200F;  contact burns occur as low as 118F. Radiator covers protect your family, guests, and pets – (and look great doing it!)

Radiator enclosures from Beautiful Radiators .com are easy to order, easy to assemble. And they’re guaranteed to please, in six great, powder-coated colors. Beautiful Radiators .com manufactures custom radiator enclosures in all sizes! Unlimited custom colors, too!
