Radiator Cabinets For your Radiators
Without a radiator cover cabinet a radiator is less efficient. 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.
Advantages of a Radiator Cover
A good radiator cover turns the radiator into a convection heat machine. The cabinet draws in the coldest air off the floor and heats 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 it would without a cabinet. That extra heat produced in the enclosed cabinet makes the air rise faster. This creates a powerful vacuum to pull more cold air off the floor at even greater distances. So your feet will be warmer this winter also.
A nice cabinet with a Beaux-Arts’ Radiator Grille will enhance the look of any room. Plus, the added feature of the shelf space on top of the cabinet provides room for plants, books or family photographs. The radiator cover can also be integrated with shelving above.
Custom Radiator Cabinets
Beaux-Arts Classic Products makes the best radiator cover grilles. However, we don’t make cabinets. 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 handman, cabinet maker or builder construct and install a custom cabinet for you. Check out Fichman Furniture for radiator cabinets which will require assembly.
Beaux-Arts Classic Products can help plan and design a custom radiator cabinet especially for your radiators in your home, church, or building. 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). Then tell us what style grille you like best, our Louis XIV French Style grille or the Craftsman Style, Arts & Crafts Grille.
We will then send you a custom radiator cover 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 shipping charges.
Our Radiator Cover Grilles come in 10 beautiful Finishes.
