Description for Baseboarders BC001-48

Use this Retrofitting Guide to verify that your existing baseboard heaters will fit the one-size-fits-most baseboard heater cover replacements.

NOTE: For Hydronic (hot water type) Baseboard Heaters. Baseboarders are not to be installed over electric baseboard heaters.

Warranty: Warranty covers against the development of any rust. Original purchaser only.

Features:

  • Made of 24 gauge perforate steel.
  • Features TWO separate layers of protection against rust: an electroplated galvanized coating over the carbon steel and an epoxy-based powder coat in semi-gloss white.
  • Designed to retrofit on to most existing baseboard heater covers.
  • Superior Airflow... Airflow is the critical factor in proper baseboard heating. We use a perforated steel screen that visually hides the originally installed heater cover while ensuring that the heating element receives proper airflow.
  • Safer around children than traditional baseboard covers... The dangers associated with hot finned tube heating elements are well known. Our one-piece design doesn't allow for little fingers or small flammable toys to be placed inside the heater via the top gap where the heat comes out.
  • Simple to Install... It just doesn't get any easier. Only the non-permanent components of the existing heater cover are discarded. The back cover that is mechanically fastened to the wall stays in place.
  • Baseboarders are made of steel and will get just as hot as the original covers.

                          The product is excellent. Install is extremely easy. Product arrived very quickly. The only recommendation I have is with the packaging. The items were taped together inside the box with a clear tape. Removal of the tape and adhesive was difficult. I didn't want to scrape the new cover, so I ended up using nail polish remover to strip the glue after an hour of rubbing it with soap and water. We plan to buy more for our home. They look beautiful!!

                                could not find in any store a cover for my 4 inch base board heater. I needed it to redo my bathroom. even a supply house could not help. found this cover that FITS on the internet. My bathroom is finally done, and I love the look of the new baseboard heater. At least 5 of my friends asked me for the name and make of it. I was happy to comply.

                                                  the metal is not very thick/strong so it will rattle a little but good overall product.
                                                  Also easy to spray paint any color.

                                                        This was purchased to update our old and rusty baseboard hydronic heater in our bath after we remodeled. Looks better than the original cover when it was new and gives a much more modern and clean look. Another advantage is that if you did want to repaint to color match, the cover would just slip off and back on so painting would be a breeze. best value I could find on the web. Don't forget to purchase the end covers. Goes on ez, looks great.

                                                              Bought this with the 2 end caps to replace an old rusty and beat baseboard heater cover during our bathroom remodel. It really looks great. I don't know why the companies don't offer a cover on the originals that look this good.
                                                              Only cons are the cost and the fact that it didn't go on quite as easily as in the videos, but I guess that is to be expected.
                                                              One other nice thig is that if it ever does rust could easily be removed to repaint or to match a new wall color if desired.
                                                              Supply house has the best price as usual. Thanks

You may use two smaller sections of basic baseboard cover and join them with the connecting coupler part CP004. For example you could joint a 3 ft section BC001-36 with a 4 foot section BC001-48 to reach 7 feet in total.

By installing Baseboarders using the WB001 wall brackets would mean you can determine the height of the covers. The bottom of the finned tube element should be located no less than 1" above the finished floor.
