While smaller spaces require smaller heaters, certain spaces, like school halls, and care homes with communal areas such as hospital wards, may require more heaters or larger ones to keep the space at a comfortable temperature for service users.

Radiator covers are used to protect individuals from injury by improving the overall safety of an area. Because of the varying sizes in radiators that you can find in a place, it's important to have radiator covers that work to suit them.

But what’s the longest radiator cover that you can have? Read on to find out…

Is There A Limit On Radiator Length?

Contour Heating is not limited to the potential size of the radiator covers. We can make them as long as you would like them to be.

To ensure that safety is always kept at the forefront of what we provide, however, any cover that is over 1800mm will be divided into sections. This prevents the need for overly large doors in the cover that would make easy access for cleaning more difficult.

The division of the covers allows for a longer cover to be created while maintaining the highest standard of safety at all times.


Bespoke Radiator Design

The best way to ensure that your radiators are covered to the proper safety standard is to have them measured on-site and choose covers that are produced to meet those measurements exactly.

Contour radiator covers are produced on a bespoke basis to ensure that they are designed with your needs in mind. From a safety perspective, this is the best option for ensuring total protection of your spaces and the service users within it.

By designing radiator covers to be bespoke fitted, Contour’s products ensure that there are no gaps between the wall and cover, preventing the risk of items being pushed through them. They also come to the size that you require straight away, rather than mass-produced covers that would need to be adapted. 

For further protection, we offer additional extras such as pencil-proof grilles to prevent children from inserting them through the covers.
