Radiator cover for kindergartens and schools to prevent burning and severe injuries
Heaters keep the room warm during the winter, but at the same time also present a lot of dangers to children. Children might burn themselves on the hot metal pieces or bump their heads on the very sharp and hard edges and corners. The Arte Viva Radiator Cover was specially developed to reduce and eliminate those risks for children in schools and kindergartens. The radiator cover keeps the advantage of a heater and at the same time encases the heater to create a safe environment for children to grow, learn and play in.
The modular radiator cover is made from sustainable wood (FSC certified). Furthermore, wood is softer than metal, so bumping into the cover is less hurtful than bumping into the metal radiator. Since the heater is fully covered when the protection is installed, children are not able to reach the radiator and are therefore protected from burnings from the hot radiator. Due to air vents in the wooden protection, heat circulation is stimulated, and heating up the full room is not a problem. By making the slots 12.5 mm wide, 98% of children up to 4 years old cannot get their fingers trapped between the curved panels (Daams, B. (2013).
Thanks to our modular system the length can be customized. The design can be very unique since it is possible to paint the cover after the purchase in any color that fits the interior of the room.
