Baseboard Heater Cover Safety

All baseboard covers will get hot. This cannot be avoided without disrupting the efficient flow of heat to the room. Baseboard covers generally feel hot to the touch, but not hot enough to cause burns or significant injury.

A baseboard’s heating element presents the biggest danger for small children, whose hands can fit inside the gaps on standard baseboard covers. DIY Baseboard Heater Covers, available online exclusively at, solve this problem. These attractive, easy-to-install covers completely block access to the heating element, making them a safer alternative to traditional baseboard covers.
