why people would really like to cover their radiators ? No really, why? This is a genuine question as I really dont understand why

I was going to ask probably an obvious question don't these reduce the heat output of the radiator?

Some people don't like how radiators look.

Personally my life doesn't have enough time in it to be worried about the aesthetic qualities of my central heating, but if your life does you have one of two options based on your accumalated wealth:

1. You're rich. You spend £1000+ on what some would call a designer interior heating sculpture. Your friends will love it. You will die a little inside.

2. You're poor. You buy an mdf radiator cover. Your friends won't care. You will die a little inside.

Yep it will reduce the heat in the room, all you do is warm the cabinet up, no idea why people would buy these

Or get rid of your radiators altogether, anyone got this system?

Same here. If you don't like the look of your radiators, then why not just get some nicer looking ones?

What a great idea!
#12
Bear in mind that painting these untreated MDF covers is a pain (I know I've done it...). Still a good price.

Dont notice any difference in heat output. Put the foil behind the radiators...

because paying for a plumber to replace the new ones you'd have to buy would cost considerably more than covering them up.

i bought one of these last time they had them in and must say they are great, took just two coats of paint, stapled some decorative led lights behind and put it in the hall to cover may radiator! looks great and gives off a nice ambient light. heat added

I saw something like this back in the 1970s, when they were known as Scandi or Scandinavian heating systems. They were rather ugly back then, and these seem a real aesthetic improvement.

For certain rooms, particularly in an office as in the picture or in a minimalist house, they would be great, but for many people, myself included, most of these would end up being behind furniture. At least the traditional radiator is out of the way under the window, (and not covered by long curtains as so many people do).

The real answer would be to design a wider range of better looking radiators, rather than them being a niche market and massively overpriced, surely not a difficult job with all these so-called clever designers around.

And where does the heat from the cabinet then go? They don't reduce the heat in a room, but they do change the airflow.

Im putting one in my hall way, but its the only place im putting one though.

The reason is because I hate the look of it, and I also wanted somewhere to put keys. My hall is so small that I have nowhere to put a table etc and so it seemed the logical answer.

No, they do reduce the output of the radiator since the dT to the cabinet area is lower, thus the driving force is lower and the output is lower. You are effectively insulating your radiator to prevent heat loss. That doesn't make it wrong to have them though.
#19
can you put these over a storage heater?
#20
I have but only on one that is set very low. I'm sure I've read that it isn't recommended.

I would be tempted to say no with the storage heaters most of the heat comes out of the top plus they get very hot but then thats just my opinion

It seems most are against radiator cabinets

I dont think most people are against everybodys taste are different, I want one to tidy up a heater in the hall way and it works out cheaper to do it this way rather than buy a new heater
#24
I been thinking of getting 1 of these but need a large 1 for my hallway, if there is a heat loss its not worth it.

Not a heat loss, a reduction in heat output. It will actually lower the cost of running your central heating system if this is not close to a thermostat, but it will mean the room is colder.
suspended#26
The radiator cover also stops tiny fingers burning themselves, we have fire guards, why not radiator covers?
Also it doubles as a shelf in halls, looking much nicer than a shelf above your radiator would in a room where space is at a premium.
Buying a new radiator to fit in with decor that'll change long before the radiator will doesn't seem a great solution either.
#27
Does anyone know the dimensions of the large one mentioned in the add please?
