Distinct Kids Radiator Cover Cars design in Berry Red with 5 reasons why use it in Kids Bedroom

Much has been written about Radiator Cabinets based on how they affect heat efficiency ... and do not worry, I am not going to come up with scientific proof, either way, just specify reasons that might not be immediately obvious for considering putting good quality Radiator Covers (like our Distinct Kids Radiator Cabinets ;)in your children bedroom, nursery, playroom and any other are frequented by children (or even pets) such as corridors.

1. Safety - safer touch

Distinct Kids Radiator Cabinets features - safer touch with no direct contact with the heater

Enclosed on top and sides the Radiator Cabinets provide physical barrier safeguarding children, pets etc. from touching hot heater and no direct contact with the radiator minimises the danger of burning of the delicate young skin

2. Safety – fully enclosed 

Distinct Kids Radiator Cabinets features - fewer bumps with sharp corners & pipes hidden

Radiator Cabinets hide all sharp corners, pipes, valves meaning radiators are less likely to cause scratches, bumps and bruises; this is why we highly recommend these in children activity areas such as bedrooms, playrooms, nurseries, corridors etc.

3. Easy maintenance – removable front

Distinct Kids Radiator Cabinets features – easy access for maintenance with the removable front cover

The front panel of the Radiator Cabinet is fitted to the frame with standard KEKU fixings (see details on our Fitting Instruction Page) which means it can be easily removed allowing access for maintenance, annual bleeding, changing the settings, vacuuming etc. etc.

 4. Performance - optimal heat distribution

Distinct Kids Radiator Cabinets features - optimal heat through the large top and bottom gaps

With top and side panels Radiator Cabinets are more enclosed than our standard Radiator Covers meaning they are not as heat efficient. Our innovative design of Distinct Kids Radiator Cabinets features large gaps at the top and bottom of the cabinet meaning there is the least interference with the heat transfer from the radiator to the room in comparison to other cabinets. There is also a theory that the that with well-designed Radiator Cabinets there is a flue effect of cold air being drawn through the radiator and directing the warm air into the room, adding the natural convection heating process.

5. Reduce noise – better night sleep

Distinct Kids Radiator Cabinets features - reduced noise when heaters are heating or cooling

You might have noticed that some radiators (especially the older ones) tend to make a bit of noise when heating up and cooling down in particular, Radiator Cabinets cover the radiator reduced any monstrous noise it might be making, helping to get a better night sleep.

Bathroom towel rails get very hot so it is important to minimise the risk of burns, especially for children, if the bathrooms are used by guests in your B&B, hotel or public area or the Towel Rail is positioned close to the sanitary ware making it almost impossible not to touch it when in use.
