Baseboard Heater Covers Easy Installation
Installation is easy as 1-2-3!
No Back Plate? No Problem!
Sometimes the back plate (the piece of metal behind the heating element that's attached to the wall) is missing or cannot be used when installing new baseboard heater covers. We have a simple solution using easy-to-install wall brackets.
Ensure the wall behind the baseboard heater is patched and painted up to 8″ above the finished floor. (Up to 10” above the finished floor if using the Premium Tall style.)
Locate the nearest stud (or some solid material behind the sheetrock) at both ends of the heater.
To make the job easy, locate and drill a pilot hole a minimum of 7″ above the finished floor. This is only a recommended height as you can install the panel higher off the floor if you like. (Drill a pilot hole a minimum of 9” above the finished floor if using the Premium Tall style).
Using the screws provided, secure one WB001 wall bracket at each end of the heater. Use a third in the middle for additional support and for 6′ and 7′ lengths.
The wall bracket will produce a thin gap between itself and the wall. This gap will receive the lip on the back side of the Baseboarders® panel as illustrated.
