Smith’s Fan Convectors has launched a new version of its Space Saver plinth heater to fit 80mm plinth heights. Smith’s claims their new slim-line SS80 kitchen heater is the only plinth heater available in Europe that fits IKEA-style 80mm plinth heights, and is available nationally from most merchants, online stockists and branches of Wickes.
The first in a number of innovations, Smith’s new Space Saver hydronic plinth heater is designed to fit much narrower plinths. Like its taller counterparts, installing the Space Saver SS80 frees up wall space for extra wall surfaces.
Jim Bennett, Smith’s Sales & Marketing Director, said: “The Space Saver is a key appliance for the New Build and RSL markets, as well as for the mainstream consumer. It offers efficient, controllable warmth to kitchens where space is at a premium. Installers can use it to replace a radiator and because it will work off any wet central heating system, it’s a simple replacement that gives so much more to the end user.”
The plinth heater installs discreetly into the dead space under fitted units and is supplied as standard with a stainless steel grille, and is also available in alternative finishes. It is suitable for heating rooms up to 24m3 and provides an alternative heat solution for bedrooms and office furniture that also have plinths. It uses a low water content when compared with a radiator, and heats up quicker than both radiators and underfloor heating.
