Slant/Fin has been America’s best known manufacturer of baseboard heating equipment since 1949. The founder, Mel Dubin, was convinced there was a better way to manufacture fin-tube radiation and he was determined to find it. Mel’s story (and eventually our story) started in the back of a bakery in Coney Island, New York, with a focus on commercial grade elements. The original design was a locked, slanted fin – hence the name Slant/Fin. For more than half a century, heating contractors, engineers, and builders alike have depended on Slant/Fin for products of the highest quality. Today, they install heating equipment in millions of homes in the United States, Canada and around the world.
