BEAB Approval

The unit features an overheat safety cut out mechanism so that the unit does not overheat and cause a fire.

Super Cool Appearance

For starters this convector heater looks super cool and modern.

There is an option to have the unit freestanding or to secure it against a wall as the image shows. Wall fixings are included when you purchase this slimline heater.

The unit only weighs 2.7kg so can be transported very easily throughout the home.

The measurements are 82 x 20.5 x 20cm.

Bear in mind that Dimplex recommend a clearance space of 23cm on each side of the heater, and 60cm at the top, so ideally your wall, if fitting it to a wall and not leaving it free-standing, would be greater than 128cm long.

Wattage is 500w and voltage is 240v.

A standard 3 pin, 13 amp plug measuring around 135cm is attached to the unit.

The unit does not make any noise when operating.

Who is it For?

The Glen Dimplex 500W Skirting Heater is for those that require a low-level of heat.

For a greater amount of heat you could purchase two units and place them on adjacent walls.

The skirting heater is suitable for living rooms, kitchens, conservatories and bedrooms. Anywhere, except bathrooms, where you want to add a touch of class.

For a bathroom heater try the Dimplex FX20V Wall Mounted Heater.

It can also be used in caravans, motor homes and mobile homes etc.
