In a monumental building, the walls and window sills are not always perfectly level. In addition, these houses often contain wide radiators for which no kits are for sale in the range or praxis. Therefore, have something drawn and cut to size.

Tailor-made radiator conversion

1. Measurements taken and checked twice. 2 Drawing made. 3 Required panels entered. - top plate 12 mm (3 sides rounded) - side panels 18 mm - three uprights at the front 12 mm - cross boards at the front. Also ordered valve strips ordered - 2 for the front at the top - 1 for the top. After receipt: Make L profiles from the left and right side with 2 uprights at the front. Then lay these on the floor and start distributing the ventilation strips and cross boards over the room from above. Secure them with glue and a few screws. After this you can put the framework in place and place the top shelf. Use a template (available from gamma) to mark out the corners to be sawn. I also made a hole for the ventilation strip with a router.
