Radiator Cabinets for Care Homes

RADIATOR CABINETS FOR CARE HOMES

Radiator Cabinets UK have a commercial division dedicated to supplying and building radiator cabinets for care homes throughout the UK. With emphasis on risk assessment, we have been working with many care homes to install our ranges of radiator cabinets to minimise injury to guests staying at the home.

Our commercial radiator covers meet all health and safety requirements, whilst continuing to be aesthetically pleasing. They are especially recommended for use in hospitals, schools, care-homes, nurseries and retirement homes. We cater for all environments, especially those which may house the young, elderly or infirm.

Our made-to-measure radiator cabinets and radiator covers prevent physical contact with the heat of the radiator without blocking heat and preventing the room from warming up. The curved edges ensure a further degree of safety and the opening in the cabinet aids the efficiency of the radiator as this creates a flue effect of air being drawn through the cabinet and being more evenly distributed throughout the room our bespoke radiator covers are used to ensure that the maximum surface temperature that a resident, patient, or visitor can be exposed to is 43 degrees centigrade. This temperature is determined by the NHS directive DN4.

The NHS Estates Health Guidance Notes, “Safe hot water and surface temperatures” ISBN 0113221584 formally known as DN4, was issued following a number of serious accidents, some of which proved fatal, arising from the high surface temperatures of radiators.
