Default How do I stop the heat from the radiator going behind the curtain.

Hi,
Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop the heat from the radiator's going up the back of the curtains? The curtains are not long enough to tuck behind the radiator, and there's not enough of a gap behind the rad's to clip a shelf above them.
At the moment I've got my grandsons colouring book tucked in to hold the curtains back

Not really the look I'm going for..

I remember a few years ago seeing something in one of those free magazines you get in the newspaper....I don't know what it's called but basically it was a curved plastic strip that clipped on the top of the radiator and I think it has a built in fan ?..... Basically the curve deflected the head back into the room rather than rising up behind the curtains ..

Will a proper radiator shelf not fit, something similar to this is what I used to solve the very same problem.

Now that's interesting! Every day's a school day!

That's what I was thinking of getting but when I showed my hubby he reckons it won't fit as the radiator is flush to the wall.

Wickets do the same sort of shelf in different lengths. That’s where we got ours. Not sure what to suggest if the radiator is that flush to the wall that the metal support won’t go down between or there isn’t the three inch or so about the radiator for the shelf to go.

What's the difference between vertical and horizontal grills? And can you change them
