Heat Keeper Reflector panels work in three ways to save you energy and improve room comfort:[clear]  No 1:- The panels reflect heat back into the radiator so water returns hotter to the boiler which there fore fires up less often, so saving heating costs.   No 2:- The scientifically designed profiles trap insulating pockets of air between the radiator and the wall.   No 3:- The profiles also stimulate convection currents which improve heat circulation and help eliminate cold air spots in the room.

Trials carried out by independent experts show that you can save as much as 20% of the money you spend on heating your home when using heat keeper panels.

Heat keeper reflector panels are recommended by the Energy Saving Trust and accredited by Ofgem.energy saving trust logoamber radiator heat keeper logo

Under floor heating manifold covers

Recently we have manufactured lots of under floor heating manifold covers from our veneered oak or our standard colour range or even our colour match finishes with any of our grille selections and in our standard cabinet designs to hide the unsightly pipeworts and electrical connections.

The covers work very similar to our radiator coves in the fact they have easy access if needed by simply lifting the cover off and they are well ventilated to help the heating system ventilate the heat safely.

If you need anymore information on the cover for wet system heating manifolds then please contact us using the contact us page link at the foot of the webpage

Storage heater cover finished in satin white

Here is a storage heater cover we installed locally at Brambly Hedge nursery in Castleford, the cover replaced an existing mesh metal cover and we manufactured the cover with a removable top shelf to gain access to the controls and the mains isolation switch, as you can see the decorative small aperture holed grille on the front panel allows for ventilation but children can not get fingers in the holes.

If you need child care in the Castleford oe Wakefield area take a look at the website www.bramblyhedge.org.uk
