Smith’s Space Saver SS80 goes Dutch and Swedish

Smith’s Fan Convectors market-leading Space Saver plinth heater has been given a profile boost in the Dutch and Swedish markets.

SmithsEnvironmentalProducts_301_03A new slim-line version of the Smith’s Space Saver was launched last year – the Smith’s Space Saver SS80 – making it the only plinth heater in Europe that fits IKEA-style 80mm plinth heights. The Space Saver SS80 fits much narrower plinths found in kitchen designs popular in Scandinavia and Germany. Like its taller counterparts, installing the Space Saver SS80 frees up wall space for extra work surfaces and more storage or desirable kitchen appliances. It provides an alternative for home owners having to make do with a panel radiator or expensive under-floor heating.

A CGI animation demonstrating the way the Space Saver works to create additional storage in your kitchen, has been edited to include a Dutch and Swedish voiceover. The Dutch version is now available to watch on Smith’s Environmental Products’ YouTube Channel.

Jim Bennett, Smith’s Sales & Marketing Director, stated, “The Space Saver is a key appliance for the New Build and RSL markets, as well as for the mainstream consumer. We believe that the Dutch and Swedish markets, like the UK, will appreciate what it can offer in terms of controllable warmth in 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 Smith’s Space Saver installs discreetly into the dead space under fitted units and is now supplied as standard with a stainless steel grille, as well as being available in alternative finishes. The Space Saver SS80 is suitable for heating rooms up to 24m³ and could also provide an alternative heat solution for bedrooms and office furniture that also have plinths. It uses an extremely low water content when compared with a radiator and so it will heat up much more quickly than both radiators and underfloor heating, as well as affording users more responsive controls.

The SS80 is now available nationally from all good merchants and online stockists.
