Baseboard heat covers

I have been looking for a replacement baseboard heat (hot water) cover. Does anyone have any links to sources? I have searched and have not come up with anything other than hot water radiators covers.

Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestions. I did check out Mission but I can't justify the costs. After doing some more research, I think I may just go with making my own out of wood with a stainless metal lining to direct the heat into the room. Should be cheap and easy, I was just hoping to not have to spend the time.

I will check out the other link provided before I do anything.

Thanks again.

baseboard

If you make your own make sure you let room on the bottom for air too get in.Make them so they come off easy so you can clean the fins out all the time. Went on a no heat call one time boiler and burner ran just fine. Found lint on all the fins on the bottom in the baseboard and that stopped the air so no heat to the rooms.Boiler running like mad ED

How much room would you suggest leaving at the bottom? would 1/2" be sufficient?

I was planning on no space at the bottom, but leaving it open makes complete sense now. THis is essentially what I am planning.

baseboard

Like the old covers I would let an 1" or more at the floor for air.The warm air goes up the wall there and the cold air comes over to the bottom of the baseboard and up the wall when it gets warm. ED
