The best way to secure a radiator cover to the wall

The standard way of securing a radiator cover to the wall is to use metal fixings that are screwed to both the radiator and the wall to keep the cover safely in place. Like all tasks involving drilling into masonry and then screwing metal L shaped fixings into position, it is a labour intensive time consuming operation that leaves an unsightly fixing screwed to the wall. It even sounds like an antiquated method of attaching radiator covers to walls, something that you would have expected to have long been replaced by a simpler cleaner and faster means of attachment.  Radiator covers now come in different styles, designs, colours and wood materials. They represent trendy efficiency as heat conservers and double up as a piece of stylish furnishing. Composite materials are a growing popular choice for manufacturing radiator covers.  When manufactured as radiator covers they provide an aesthetically appealing furnishing accessory that compliments the homely surroundings. However the process of securing them to the wall has not progressed in a number of years. Is there a more modern non intrusive means of attachment that we have yet to hear of? Indeed a recently developed revolutionary adhesive/sealant is offering an effective alternative method of securing radiator covers to the wall with no drilling, dust and use of screws necessary.


An efficient multipurpose adhesive is now on sale.

You can now dispense with drilling and screws to secure radiator covers to a wall. An innovative and revolutionary new adhesive/sealant has been developed to replace wood adhesives, PU adhesives and all silicone sealants as an effective means of bonding materials. CT1, the eponymous brainchild of the inventing Company, CT1, is compatible with virtually any material, possessing the right ingredients to glue the radiator cover safely and firmly to a block wall with no adverse effects. Uniquely formulated to suit all construction applications this high tensile strength adhesive/sealant is resistant to chemicals, oil, UV and vibration. It is non aggressive to synthetic materials – preserving the quality on a long term basis – and seals underwater. It can be spread underwater with maximum effect and is a great asset to the marine industry where it can be applied below the waterline to repair leaks. As a solvent free hybrid polymer it is odourless, non toxic, does not shrink or expand, conforms to ISEGA standards and is compliant with eco regulations. It can be applied equally in wet or dry conditions with total success and is corrosion and moisture resistant. It is often used as a safe and effective sealant in the food and medical industry. When dispensing CT1 no gun is required. An automatic dispenser is activated with the touch of a finger and it delivers the right amount of product to the target surface.
