radiator cover grilles
A radiator without a cabinet is less efficient than a radiator with a cabinet. Without a cabinet, the heat radiates outward too quickly and the cold air on the floor never gets heated. The coldest air in any room is always on the floor. If the floor remains cold, then your radiator needs a cabinet to improve overall warmth. A nice cabinet with a Beaux-Arts’ Radiator Grille will enhance the look of any room.
A good radiator cabinet turns the radiator into a convection heat machine, drawing in the coldest air off the floor and heating it, before releasing hot air through the grille near the top of the cabinet. The vacuum created by hot air rising pulls more cold air off the floor and into the cabinet to heat and rise again. The trapped air in the cabinet gets much hotter than a radiator without a cabinet. That extra heat produced in the enclosed cabinet makes the air rise faster which creates a powerful vacuum to pull more cold air off the floor at even greater distances.
Beaux-Arts Classic Products makes the best radiator grilles. However, we don’t make cabinets since almost every radiator requires a custom sized cabinet. This is due to the size of the radiator, placement of the valves, and location of adjacent walls, windows and door molding. Full size radiator cabinets are expensive to ship. So, it is best to have a local handyman, cabinet maker or builder construct and install a custom cabinet for you. Beaux-Arts can help plan and design a custom radiator cabinet. All you have to do is photograph your radiator and email or text (301-789-6016) it to us along with the dimensions (width x depth x height). Tell us what style grille you prefer.
We will send you a custom radiator cabinet design made exclusively for your radiator. Your design will arrive via email in .pdf format, which will be easy to either print or send by email. Once you have the design, you can use it to find someone locally to make the cabinet for you. You can even use the drawing to solicit bids from more than one carpenter. Plus the same person can install the cabinet for you. Another added benefit of employing a local craftsman is no shiping charges.
