Can you place things above a radiator?

FAQ banner image

You can place things above a radiator, provided that you leave a gap of 5cm or more between the top of the heating device and any objects so that heat is able to properly circulate.

That said, it is advisable not to position things directly on top of a radiator for any length of time when they are switched on. Damage could be caused to the items, or you might scald yourself when picking them up.
