    Is it ok to reuse the above when doing a rewire?? It's in a bathrom BTW.

    Extra info:---

    It's in zone 3 (possibly out of zones??)
    It has no IP rating (open element behind grille)
    It must have been designed for use in that zone (all be it 20 odd years ago)
    Assuming all supplemental bonding is correct

    It may well be 20 years old but exactly the same product is available today .
    Dimplex for example describe them as
    infra red wall heaters are a safe practical source of heat in bathrooms ,kitchens,work areas
    If they are not within reach then I agree and better in a relaxing bath than a burring fan heater

    Hi, there is one issue which has been overlooked, yes, similar heaters are available such as one post said ie dimplex. There is a difference, dont know exactly when the reg came out but it is to do with the protecting grill. The old ones were spaced apart, the new grills are more protected. Hope this helps.

    I think that the issue is really decoration, as all cabling is in oval. I have found a fan heater made by Sunhouse which has a larger footprint than a lot of the others, so I will have to see if my wholesaler can get them in!! :):)
