Here are some commonly asked questions regarding radiator covers:
Q: I’ve heard that radiator covers hold back heat. Is that true?
A: No. In most situations, a properly designed radiator cover will actually improve the heat flow of a radiator. The University of Illinois conducted a study indicating that with a properly built radiator cover, the heat is directed out through the front – actually increasing the temperature in what they call the “living zone” (or lower part of your room) by about four and a half degrees.
Q: So then what is a “properly designed” radiator cover?
A: An effective radiator cover should have a reflective back to project the heat foreword, into the room. All Barker Metalcraft radiator covers include reflective backs at no extra charge.
Q: I have a long, low radiator that is set under a picture window. Will I be able to use your cover as a window seat?
A: Absolutely. Although our radiator covers are designed to be lightweight for ease of installation and removal, strength is a major design factor. All covers over 40″ in length are reinforced in the front as well as the top, so that a cover that is 75″ in length can easily and safely hold up to three average-sized adults.
