FAQ's

I've heard that louvered or saw-toothed panels are the best option. How does Radflek compare?

Our Radflek radiator reflector panels have been tested by the BBA (British Board of Agrément) and reported on by the BRE (Building Research Establishment), and Ofgem has confirmed that it is the most efficient radiator reflector on the market. Radflek is at least 23% more effective than any other radiator reflector panel or radiator foil available on the market.

Why is Radflek better than putting kitchen foil behind a radiator?

Kitchen foil is far less efficient than Radflek as a reflective surface. Aluminium foil is manufactured from rolled aluminium, which when unrolled has a high reflectivity (normally towards the high end of the 80% to 90% range). All aluminium exposed to the atmosphere has a thin layer of aluminium oxide on its surface. Aluminium oxide is porous and very quickly becomes contaminated by atmospheric pollution and water vapour. This contamination soon dulls the initial bright appearance of aluminium foil and, once it becomes dull from atmospheric contamination, that reflectivity is materially reduced. In contrast to kitchen foil, Radflek has a special coating that maintains its initial greater than 95% reflectivity for a lifetime of at least 60 years, as certified by the BBA (British Board of Agrément). As well as having no such coating, kitchen foil is considerably more flimsy as it is not laminated like Radflek (which has a 250kg burst strength).

Will your radiator reflector panels work as well in 5 years time as when it is first fitted?

Yes - occasional clean the relfector panels with a damp cloth to remove the dust will, this will keep them working as good as new and reducing heating bills year after year.

How much will Radflek Radiator Reflectors save me?

It depends on the wall and the heating energy source, but Radflek can pay for itself in six months. One £20 pack of our reflector can save up to £40 per year.

Why use Relfectors...

Test show that our thin layer radiator reflector panels are highly cost effective way in ruducing thermal heat loss from the back of your radiators through your walls.
