It depends, but probably not. Fixed electrical heating shouldn't really be on a ring main. Normally you have a separate radial circuit to each heater, as these take a lot of current at a high duty cycle. Ring mains are usually reserved for portable equipment and fixed equipment that either takes little current, or large amounts for short periods.
You could get away with it if you can justify why you think it won't get much use and won't overly load down the circuit, but I wouldn't recommend it.
If it is the primary heating in a room, then you really should be wiring it up to its own circuit. A B16A radial would be appropriate. If you have electrical heating throughout a property, you may even need to wire the heaters to a separate phase of a multiple phase supply, as a typical 60A or 100A house supply may not be enough.
