Hi all, I’m looking for an oil filled radiator that’s not very high, as we want it to run along low down under a row of coat hooks. So I need it to be around 1200mm long, but maybe only 300mm high. I can find tall thin ones but I’m not sure you can fit them sideways. I will fit it to the wall permanently.
It’s only to go in a cloakroom for a bit of coat drying and ambient heat.
Anyone seen or read about one this size? Google searches failed me so far, usually Mumsnet doesn’t let me down though.

How about a heated towel rail fitted horizontally?

Sorry I saw you said oil filled blush

We've got electric ones fitted to their own thermostat in our utility boot room....

Do you mean a plug-in oil filled radiator? I have a couple of these for back-up heating and would recommend them.

Can't followctbe link below, but have also got one from Coopers of Stortford recently.

Sorry - hope this is a better link!

Try, www.electricradiatorsdirect.co.uk/oil-filled-radiators/

I know nothing about them, have never used them and am not connected to company in any way.

As ever, my link doesn't work for reasons I know nothing about but go to their home page and they seem to have what you're looking for.

Now, can someone tell me how to do links on an android device?😥

Thanks all.
Thecazelets, that’s exactly what I need, but a version you can wall mount, for neatness and to get it off the floor level. We’d have it plugged in or wired in permanently.
There seem to be lots of free standing radiators available, but not wall mounted of the same kind.
I’ll keep looking!

Apparently the Stortford one used to have a wall mounting option.
I got mine at the end of last year as as it was a very mild winter didn't use it that much and it is in the garage for the summer, but my DP is (hopefully) going to make a couple of mounting brackets for me before the coming winter.

I'm quite interested in this too as I spent a very long time looking for the ones we have, as I wanted them to go discreetly behind a sofa.

The conservatory ones on the link Wingedharpy posted might work - they seem to be 37cm high and wall mountable. More features - but correspondingly much more expensive.

Thecazelets, Yes, it’s weird how the free standing ones are not too expensive but a wall mounted one is much more so! I might just go with the freestanding one. That last link you posted looks good. It’s doesn’t specifically say oil filled, but it is filled with some sort of special fluid, so must work on the same principal.
