This probably comes with no surprise but we are constantly having to adjust our prices due to the economic situation, the materials we use for manufacture has risen over the past 18 months for many reasons.
Our base material of MDF has risen in excess of 60% due to import, transportation and handling?
Our painting materials have risen due to solvent prices by 70% and are predicted to rise again due to the fuel crisis?
Our delivery cost from the courier services we use have risen weekly due to fuel costs and driver shortages? and our packaging materials, card in-particular has risen 60-70%
Our work shop rent has also risen since covid started in 2020 along with the utility bills which are now scheduled to rise significantly in April 2022?
We have tried to absorb these costs but unfortunately it is become hard and we are now going to have to increase our product prices accordingly.

Our oak radiator covers are manufactured from oak veneer material, We use the Oak material to manufacture our bespoke radiator cabinets in our modern classic and traditional design made to measure cabinets with a large choice of oak grille decorative screening panels for the front openings.
The Oak material we use is a 19mm American white oak veneer board with a solid MDF core, we supply this in untreated oak, natural oak with clear lacquer or medium and dark oak stain with clear satin lacquer, this is the only option in the radiator cover builder, however we can also supply pine veneer & Beach veneer however these are not very popular options but are available, please use the contact us page for more information at the footer bottom of any page.
NOTE:- the machined edges of the veneer boards are not veneered as the edges of our radiator cover parts have profiled edges, we leave them MDF core and we use a sealing agent to make the edges smooth and they are coloured the same as the oak veneer.
The untreated oak veneer finishes, the edges of the board will be profiled and sanded ready for you to varnish stain oil etc and finish the cabinet to your desired shade, the stained options we offer we colour the edges as close as reasonably possible to the surface colour and then seal and apply clear lacquer to all the surfaces to provide a satin smooth flat finish, if you need more information or samples then please contact us, link at the bottom of the page.
the three stains of oak veneer we offer in our made to measure section are as per picture, 99% of our orders are natural oak as the medium and dark oak tend to be quite a dark finish.
We can also stain the oak board to suit many shades of mahogany, teak, jacobean colours and various other stain colours, you would need to contact us for this option and we can send out samples for you to approve.
Pattern oak veneered grilles can only be sourced in the oak veneer finish, these can be added to any radiator cover order or they are sold separately on our website for your own projects please take a look in our shop, we can also supply the horizontal or vertical bars in oak, pine and beech although alloy pattern grilles are very popular on the veneer finished cabinets.
