OK need quick answer

need to order rads today.

Need one for under windown sill in living room.

Space from floor to sill 760mm

Rad I want is 600mm.

Is 160mm big enough gap at bottom (oak floor)

I have at least one lower than that, FWIW - raised window sill (not me personally) in order to put existing rad under window and free up useful wall. Floor is carpeted though - dunno if that makes any diff?

OK - have just measured upstairs. Lowest is 100mm, 2 others are 150mm. 160 should be OK?

Fantastic, thanks v much. All ours seem to be v high, so was worried that there was some reason for it and that if I ordered rad it would be wrong aaargh

Hate all this building work crap and having to make decisions when I don't have a clue what I'm doing (similar to job really!!)
