Heatkeeper Radiator Reflector Panels - 10 Panel Pack
About this deal
As we move towards lower flow temperatures in our central heating systems (Building Regs now require a maximum 55°C flow as against older homes with a 65°C flow) and our homes are more insulated, these reflectors are less useful. Spend the money on insulation and draught proofing." The best radiator reflector on the market is the nifty radiator reflector kit from Radflek which provides enough reflective foil to insulate between 3-6 radiators in your home (depending how large they are of course). Our range of panels covers every unit and furniture you can possibly think of. From beautiful Radiator Covers uk with intricate patterns to moisture resistant MDF Decorative Panels , your entire house can have a touch of decorative flair with these panels.
Flexible MDF cross-grain sheets are an ideal choice for any curved surfaces and units such as desk and bar fronts. These sheets are available in both long edge to long edge and short edge to short edge options. MDF Decorative Panels at Builders Marketplace
How are Heatkeepers installed?
The energy saving claims from companies vary, but Radflek, whose products have been tested by the British Board of Agrément (BBA) and verified by the BRE, say their products can reduce heat transfer through walls by 45%. Radiator reflectors only really work well when radiators are really hot and the wall behind is cold," explains David Hilton, a renewables and ventilation installer, with over 35 years experience. Radiator reflectors work to minimise the heat produced by radiators being lost through external walls. (Image credit: Sharps) How much money can radiator reflectors save you?
Different room sizes have different heating requirements, so not all panel radiators are suitable for the same room. If your room is smaller or doesn’t get particularly cold, our Single Panel Radiators - Type 11 will be perfectly suitable. If, however, you have a large room or particularly cold room, our Double Panel Radiators - Type 21 might be better. The difference lies in the number of panels giving off heat inside the radiator. If you really want to ramp up the heat, our Double Panel Plus Radiators - Type 22 increases the heat output again. Using wall panels for the bathroom and other spaces is a great idea. They have an advantage over tiles as they consist of fewer parts, one panel can cover the space of 100 tiles. Are MDF Decorative Panels Expensive?
Other common decorative panels include our Sundeala Pin Board , perfect for noticeboards in homes, schools and workplaces. This pin board has the added bonus of being environmentally friendly, as it is manufactured from recycled newspaper. Although every manufacturer will have their own set of installation instructions – which are usually very simple to follow – in many cases you will simply need to measure your radiator, cut the reflector to fit before fixing it between the radiator and the wall.

Learn how to bleed a radiator to keep them working efficiently and invest in a thermostatic radiator valve too. Again, not true. To keep occupants comfortable, it isn’t necessary to heat great volumes of air around them, and it can be wasteful of energy to do so. It’s more efficient to heat the human directly by radiant heating. Indeed, radiant heat feels more natural as it’s more like the sun’s rays. The panels can be customised further with additional paint and seals to get the exact look and finish you desire.
