    Default Storage heaters

    I have one of these on the wall of one of the rooms I intend to use and it obviously is warm/hot to the touch. Is this going to be an issue for my pre reg? Has anyone else God the same and what have you done to make safe?

    RA it: can a child burn themselves on it? can you control the temperature to make sure it is not going to be burning hot? It is up to you, you know how hot it gets and how well you can control it. If you feel it is a risk you could look at a guard, or just teach children not to touch, put a piece of furniture in front of it to avoid them touching, or a better thermo-control on it if possible.

    My cm friend has one but has arranged and easel and toy box in front of it, so the heat can get out, but the children can't touch it.
