possible heating efficiency.

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.
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
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!

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
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.
protect your fine draperies and wallcoverings.
Exposed radiators can burn: temperatures of an uncovered
steam radiator or hot water radiator can exceed 200°F;
contact burns occur as low as 118°F.
Radiator covers protect your family, guests, and pets – (and
look great doing it!)
