Unlike gas portable heaters, electric heaters have no fumes, so there is no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, no annual safety checks required and no need for additional ventilation
There is a range of approvals and standards that can be met by electrical heating products. These range from legally required minimum standards through to high-end approvals that demonstrate that products are tested against the highest safety standards.
Many products in the EU are covered by a directive which states that the manufacturer must declare their product meets the minimum safety, health and environmental legislation required of it by European law. This is denoted by the CE mark on the product.
The BEAB Approved Mark for Intertek is a European Safety Mark used by leading electrical manufacturers to support CE marking and to demonstrate conformity with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD). Importantly however a BEAB Approved Mark on a product demonstrates that Intertek (an independent third party) has verified its safety.
Recognised across the UK and Europe, the BEAB Approved Mark demonstrates the safety pedigree of a product. It shows commitment to best practice, commitment to producing quality goods and most importantly commitment to customer safety. This is the highest safety standard achievable in the UK market. The mark indicates that the product has been manufactured in an inspected factory, using accepted methods, that the products have been tested and assessed by Intertek, and that the products bearing the BEAB Approved Mark are also randomly checked by Intertek on an annual basis.
The use of this mark on our products, packaging and literature indicate Dimplex products meet this standard.
Only Dimplex offers the added reassurance of BEAB approval.
