Q: Do I have to assemble anything? Are they easy to
install? Do you fit them?
Radiator Covers are delivered ready-made. Unlike many other
companies, there is nothing to assemble. If you have requested
a cut for the skirting in your cover, the only thing left for
you or a helper to do, is to attach it to the wall. Screws and
wall plugs are provided. It is very easy.
We do not offer a fitting service due to the simplicity of the
task but are happy to offer any advice or answer any questions
you may have.

In most cases a radiator cover will improve the circulation
and efficiency of your radiator directing the flow of
heat into the room. In fact it is a government energy
efficiency recommendation to place a shelf above your radiator.
We can also supply insulating silver foil for the wall behind
your radiator to make further energy savings.

Q: I have calculated my cover
size but it's not the size I would like. Can I change the
Our clearances are a
recommended guide for good fitting and heat flow. You can
increase the clearances around your radiator but if you need
to reduce, please check with us first.
Q: I have an
obstacle that will hit the side of the cover. What can I do
If a Slim Width top and plinth or clearance
reduction does not solve the problem, we can usually make
other alterations to allow fitting.
Q: I have a thermostatic
valve. What should I do?
Although the vast majority of our customers enclose
it, the thermostatic valves should ideally remain outside
of the radiator cover if they are to sense the temperature of
the room correctly.
If you would like to keep the thermostatic valve outside of
the radiator cover, the side of the cover that the valve is on
will need to fit between the radiator and the valve.
When fitting, a small cut will need to be made in the cover to
receive the pipe between the radiator and the valve.
If there is not at least 20mm clearance between the radiator
and the thermostatic valve, you will not be able to fit our covers in this manner.
To allow you the choice of keeping your thermostatic valve
outside of your cover, you can choose a slim width plinth on
either or both sides of the cover. As there will be no plinth
at the side, the cover can slot between the radiator and the
thermostatic valve. This is only necessary on some models.
Details can be found in Step 3.
Your website sometimes states that you are fully booked for
a particular item. What does this mean?
Coverscreen display the message when we believe the waiting
time for manufacture and delivery of this item is excessive
or have manufacturing obligations that divert resources away
from the product line.
We apologise for this inconvenience.
Q: Do you deliver outside of the UK
Due to the weight, size and
fragility of many of our products, insurance and delivery
outside of the UK is an expensive option.
We therefore do not accept orders outside of Mainland UK.

us with any further questions
you may have.
