There’s no need for fractional or precise right-on-the-dot measurements. Baseboarders® are designed to yield an incredible amount of flexibility. Each endcap can be slid out to cover a greater length beyond the end of the panel once snapped on. In fact, a pair of endcaps can offer a full 3-1/2″ of additional span to the overall length of coverage on a typical straight heater. Here are a few quick tips that will ensure measuring panel lengths is quick and easy:
Here’s a few examples of long lengths:
As illustrated above, standard straight lengths are measured from end to end using the original back plate. If a straight section is missing the back plate, measure from one extreme end of desired coverage to the other extreme end of coverage. Then subtract 1″. This is the ideal panel length. Configurations involving an “L” or a “C” layout should, as illustrated above, always subtract the depth of the adjacent heater cover (always 3″) from the actual length measured.
Baseboarders® are manufactured in all of the common industry standard nominal lengths; 2′, 3′, 4′, 5′, 6′ and 7′. Occasionally some baseboard radiators will not possess these industry standard nominal lengths. Custom cut lengths are available from a select number of distributors as well as factory direct orders. There is no extra charge for providing custom cut lengths. On-site panel modifications are also possible. We recommend hand shears that are capable of 22 gauge galvanized steel to cut the panels. Endcaps and other accessories should not / cannot be modified.
