The issue of hiding batteries worries a lot of homeowners. It’s best to think about it at the stage of repair design. However, additional funds to spend on the work of builders are often not necessary. You can also do everything yourself. What are the options?
When planning a battery disguise, it is worth exploring certain requirements for this process. It is necessary to leave access to the thermal head and faucet so that they can be repaired if necessary. In addition, access will need to be provided to threaded connections, as well as some other elements. This will be helped, for example, by a door with hinges or some kind of removable construction. It is impossible to protect the air flows that occur during convection, since the windows will begin to fog up, and the room heating will be uneven. It is also worth remembering that heat loss will be inevitable with any capable of masking heating appliances.
There are many options for hiding batteries. A popular solution is mounted metal screens.
This is the most practical way. He has a lot of pluses. Such a design will not be able to injure, since its corners are rounded off. The heat exchange in the room remains the same. Installation does not cause any difficulties and can be done on its own.
Glass screens can also be used. They look stylish and very interesting, especially in modern styles. Patterns can be applied to glass or even photo printing, however, the cost of products in this case will be quite high. In addition, you will have to drill holes in the wall.
You can decorate radiators with the help of screen boxes. The battery in this case is completely hidden. Caring for such structures is easy enough, installation is also simple. In addition to the decorative function of the box, they also play a protective role, preventing burns on the heated surface of the radiator.
You can also use opaque curtains to hide batteries. Over time, people even forget that radiators and pipes are hidden somewhere behind the curtains. It is important at the same time only to choose the right fabric, which completely covers what is underneath.
On the wall, you can “hide” the battery by painting it in the same color as the wall itself. This option is suitable if all other methods for some reason are not available or inappropriate.
