Bulkhead mounted cabin heater. How hot?

How hot does the surface of a propane/diesel fired bulkhead mounted cabin heater get? Does it get hot enough to cause a burn if it is bumped into? We are thinking of getting one, but are worried about our small kids touching it.

We have a Force 10 heater. The heater itself gets very hot. It is just like the old home space heaters of the last century. The whole exterior of the heater is in fact the radiating element.

Just like when I was a kid. I got burned once and then knew better than play around the heater.

Same message, I have a Dickinson bulkhead mounted heater (with fan) and it''s hot enough when wide open to boil water (which we have done on the top).

Kids are smart and figure things out in a hurry. Their curiousity will ensure that each gets burned once; but never again after that.
