I'm looking to replace rusted out baseboard heater covers (35+ years old). It's a water based system with approx 4" fins.

The present covers are approx. 9 - 10" tall, 4" deep, have a 1/2" gap at the bottom and a 2" opening at the top front w/ an additional shutter inside to open or close the register (Sorry for the approx., I'm doing it from memory).

I'm not sure where to look for this old style of heating system.

See if you can locate a name brand somewhere. You can't go to a chevy dealer and ask for a Ford part. I'm not trying to be smart, but the original manufacturer name is needed to buy the replacement covers. If that doesn't work , then maybe have them made by someone experienced with sheet metal. The covers made now are approx 20 gauge sheet metal. Also factor in the original mounting brackets. Are they rusted out too? good luck, Tom

If you do any woodworking, you could always construct new ones yourself, with the added bonus of using any design, pattern, or color scheme your heart desires. If you're not a woodworker, try running a search online. My own search, with the terms "baseboard heater cover" resulted in multiple sites, including covers for purchase.
