Have you ever noticed that the look of a room can be changed with the addition of just one accent piece of furniture? Perhaps you have visited a friend or family member and you have been in their home several times before, but this time, everything looked completely different. You can’t figure out what it is, and you don’t want to ask if it the room really hasn’t changed, but there is still something different about it. Chances are, it isn’t a new piece of furniture or an expensive work of art hanging on the wall, but a new radiator cabinet from Radiator Cabinets UK.
Cover Up Those Unattractive Radiators in Your Home
Offering a wide range of styles, colours and designs, Radiator Cabinets UK is changing the way UK homes look, one radiator cover at a time. Radiators have never been a stylish part of your home. They are bulky, unattractive and purposeful. In fact, the only time we ever think of them is when they aren’t working properly, and we have to call the repair person to fix them. Other than that, the radiators in most UK homes go unnoticed. What if you could take that eyesore and make it a design accent of your home or even a focal point of a room that actually gets compliments instead of glares. That is what Radiator Cabinets UK set out to do and they have done a very good job at it so far.
Benefits of Radiator Cabinets
With styles to fit over any sized radiator as well as many custom designs that are tailor made for your home and your specific interior design theme, Radiator Cabinets UK has a custom radiator cabinet to suit your needs and your style. Radiator cabinets are a safe alternative to the sharp corners of some radiators and they can protect small children from getting burned when they touch exposed radiators. Another benefit of radiator cabinets from Radiator Cabinets UK is that that will also add value to your home giving it a custom touch that today’s homebuyers are looking for.

When it comes to the stage when your radiators are looking tired and dated a difficult quandary arrises. Do you replace the whole heating system, which could cost many thousands of pounds? Or do you opt for Radiator Cabinets or Covers?
It’s not an easy choice and there are a number of factors to consider:
The basic principal behind central heating systems have changed very little over the years. Water is heated via a boiler, and fed through the radiator system to heat the house and individual rooms. Although modern boilers are much more efficient these days, the radiator still performs the same basic task. It radiates the heat, via conduction and convection, converting the warm water and steam held within into warm air. As well as performing the same task, modern radiators are still as uninspiring as ever and really look out of place in a well designed home.
If you did decide to update your boiler, you could save a considerable part of your budget by covering the old radiators with radiator cabinets or covers. If your existing radiators still perform well, why replace them?
Well designed radiator cabinets will inject style and character in to any home.

UNDERSTANDING THE BENEFITS OF RADIATOR CABINETS IN THE HOME AND THE WORKPLACE
We understand that radiator cabinets can be decorative for the home, but for us it goes beyond being a desirable decorative furniture and into health and safety. We work with many private and commercial sector companies supplying radiator cabinets throughout the country and we regularly hear of horror stories where patients, elderly and the young have been burnt by an exposed radiator.For us, making sure the radiator cabinets are designed in line with your existing decor is paramount, but so to is making sure your family, guests and staff are also kept free from burn injuries, below are a couple of links to sites where radiator burns have caused trauma and even death.

Radiator Cabinets UK have a commercial division dedicated to supplying and building radiator cabinets for care homes throughout the UK. With emphasis on risk assessment, we have been working with many care homes to install our ranges of radiator cabinets to minimise injury to guests staying at the home.
Our commercial radiator covers meet all health and safety requirements, whilst continuing to be aesthetically pleasing. They are especially recommended for use in hospitals, schools, care-homes, nurseries and retirement homes. We cater for all environments, especially those which may house the young, elderly or infirm.
Our made-to-measure radiator cabinets and radiator covers prevent physical contact with the heat of the radiator without blocking heat and preventing the room from warming up. The curved edges ensure a further degree of safety and the opening in the cabinet aids the efficiency of the radiator as this creates a flue effect of air being drawn through the cabinet and being more evenly distributed throughout the room our bespoke radiator covers are used to ensure that the maximum surface temperature that a resident, patient, or visitor can be exposed to is 43 degrees centigrade. This temperature is determined by the NHS directive DN4.
The NHS Estates Health Guidance Notes, “Safe hot water and surface temperatures” ISBN 0113221584 formally known as DN4, was issued following a number of serious accidents, some of which proved fatal, arising from the high surface temperatures of radiators.
Managing the risk from hot surfaces
We recently installed a Chiltern Cabinet in Tatton Cheshire for a lovely home, in keeping in line with the decor of the home we made sure that we colour matched the cabinet with the Farrow and Ball Paint chart. We added a touch of class with a filigree grille on the front. A real eye opener to the hallway of this home.
