Decorative screen

Battery Decoration отопления подразумевает использование различных экранов. Важно не перекрывать поток теплого воздуха и применять материалы, которые не утрачивают основные качества вследствие постоянного воздействия высоких температур. Конструкции могут быть навесными и опирающимися на напольное покрытие. Эффектным дизайнерским решением является использование экрана-коробки в виде тумбы с дверцами. Она может стать своеобразным столом. Decorative screen нужен по той причине, чтобы помещение выглядело эстетично.

Most available radiators do not shine with aesthetics and have some problems due to functional features. A radiator is a product that has a complex design and is necessary to ensure high heat exchange between the battery housing and the environment. This element of the interior has two significant drawbacks. The first - the sharp corners, which you can get hurt, tear your clothes, curtains, expensive curtains. The second is an inconvenient construction, constantly clogged with dust. Because of this it is difficult to clean the radiator, and with an impressive accumulation of cobwebs it looks ugly. There are two criteria according to which they can be divided into the following: the type of construction and the material from which they are made.

If you pay attention to the principles of division into categories, you get the following:

By design, screens are:

FlatSuch decorative elements are more often used for batteries in a niche when they are located in a section under the windowsill and framed by a wall. At once it is necessary to note, that in the windowsill necessarily there should be ventilating apertures. This is necessary for air circulation from the radiator. Otherwise, the expediency of mounting the battery will be minimal. At the moment, this type of screen is considered the most simple and affordable.
SuspendedUsed for radiators that are installed on the plane of the wall. The screen is mounted on the radiator itself and acts as a so-called body. A significant disadvantage of this design is that the radiators must also be designed for the mass of the screen. When choosing such a design, you need to pay attention to the moment that the plane of the screen must necessarily have holes. This allows warm air to circulate better.
Side-by-sideThe more developed, complex design of the screen actually frames the battery case. The cost of such a design is high, due to the complexity of performance and expensive appearance. It has several significant advantages, one of which is the independence of installation relative to the radiators, when there is no need to install special hooks.

According to the material, the screens are made of plastic, metal, MDF, wood, and also glass:

  • plastic - available structures that are not environmentally friendly. In the course of operation, the material will constantly release harmful compounds. After passing a certain time interval, the design will lose its original shape. In addition to other characteristics, the screen will change color to a more faded, unattractive. White will eventually turn yellow. This is facilitated by heating the entire structure. The only positive moments concerning the purchase of this decor element are availability, resistance to moisture. Without fear, you can dry on this design of wet clothing after washing.
  • metal - the advantages of this material include ease, rigidity, strength, environmental friendliness, durability. Screens are suitable for people with an average income. They are made of special stainless steel. If desired, you can give any desired color. They can be dried with damp clothes. Of the significant drawbacks: if the protective coating is damaged, the construction will quickly rust, lose its former attractive appearance.
  • MDF - from it you can create any interesting shapes that will be an interesting addition to the interior. The material is cheap. It has glue in its composition. When heated, the toxic substance will volatilize and enter the air in the room. MDF is afraid of moisture, so it can deform with time.
  • wood - screens have a spectacular design, but they are short-lived. This concerns cheap designs. Cons: Wood can not contact wet environment.
  • glass - designs look impressive. Due to the fact that they are hardened, the probability of cutting is shortened. Among the minuses of such screens is fragility.

Falsch-fireplace from the battery

In the furnace you can install a lamp that will serve as an imitation of fire. If desired, you can install a garden grate on top of a niche. The battery should be covered with an imitation stone.

Finishing plasterboard

With gypsum cardboard you can easily hide an ugly battery. It is necessary to have minimal skills of repair and construction works. The method allows to completely close the radiator and the niche. To disguise the battery, it is necessary to make a gypsum board, fixed to metal profiles. It is fixed to the wall, all the holes from the screwdriver are carefully shpakkuyutsya, zashkyrivayutsya. The design is covered with a primer, and after - a coat of paint. It is necessary to leave windows for ventilation, thanks to which warm air will circulate in the room.

Pipe Decor

If you paint walls, batteries, pipes in one color, then visually they will merge into one plane. You can use one ornament for decoration, which will allow the latter to get lost on the background. For painting, you can use special stencils (vinyl), which can get the desired shape. There are a lot of options for finishing: everything depends on the style of decoration. If the interior is made in the oriental style, you can use the trunk of bamboo, which allows you to hide the sections of the radiator. It is necessary to cut the trunk of bamboo vertically, open it, insert the pipe there. You can wrap pipes with a beautiful rope - you get an interesting composition.
