Hot stuff...

...or not, that is the question. Well, this is:-
How warm/hot do the ONT and the BBU get when in use?
I want to fix them on a wall, behind a curtain and so out of sight. But will there be a heat problem? The curtain hangs several inches from the wall, so I don't think would actually touch either box and being high up, upwards ventilation will be unaffected by the curtain.
Anyone think this would be a problem?

Re: Hot stuff...

My ONT and BBU are covered by ceiling to floor curtains at night and I've not had any heat issues.
The living room radiator is a foot away from the ONT too (mounted on the same wall) and BTU inches away. During the day, the curtains are fixed back to get free air movement.  The power adaptor for the BBU/ONT is never covered though and is 2 foot further away from the heat source.
