I ordered this model:


Should I purchase a stud finder? What tools do I need to secure it to my wall?


Thank you so much for any advice

Re: Installing panel heater

Hi @ivanptr,


It's best to install the heater with at least one side attached to a stud. A stud detector would be your best bet for locating one and here's a helpful guide: How to use a stud finder


The other side can be attached directly to the plaster using Wallmates. If you can't locate a stud, the entire unit, as it's very lightweight, can be fixed to the plaster with Wallmates. The unit only weighs around 2.5 kilos, and each Wallmate can hold up to 10 kg. Wallmates are installed with a Phillips head screw driver, so that's all you will need for the installation.


Please let me know if you have any questions.
