Infra-Red Terrace / Patio Heaters
This is a powerful, user-friendly solution to outdoor living which happens to have a lot of applications indoors as well!
Terrace & Patio Heating
Terrace and Patio heaters have traditionally been the preserve of Gas “SpaceRay” type heaters or, more recently, Quartz Halogen heaters.
Gas heaters are not only expensive to purchase and install but are now also very expensive to run. As they are regulated in public spaces (Confined Spaces Regulation 1997), they are also subject to annual safety inspections. No new Gas installations of this nature may be made from 2017 onwards.
Quartz heaters emit a short wavelength heat which feels harsh to human skin. Feedback from the hospitality industry suggests customers complain of dry eyes and hot heads when sat near Quartz Halogen heaters. In consequence many Quartz patio heaters are actually under-specified and you can barely feel them at all. Infrared heaters on the other hand emit what is called the “Vital Range” wavelength – used in saunas and baby incubators and feel wonderful on the skin.
Quartz heaters emit a red glare that can become tiring to the eyes and should not be looked at directly. This also means that part of the energy it consumes is producing light as well as heat. Infrared outdoor heaters emit no light so 100% of the energy turns into heat.
Quartz bulbs have a life expectancy of approximately 12 months. These Infrared emitters are guaranteed for 5 years and have a life expectancy of significantly more than that.
Both gas and Quartz Halogen are more expensive to run than equivalent infrared heaters.
Our outdoor heaters can also be fitted with switches to enable customers to switch the heaters on and off as they require the heat
Extend your evenings outdoors with our brand new space heater and be comfortably warm outdoors.
Suitable for commercial uses such as hotels, cafes, restaurants and pubs and anywhere where a more permanent outdoor heat is required in covered or semi covered areas. Residential uses range from balconies, patio areas and conservatories and they can be mounted to permanent parasols.
Patios & Terraces
Easily installed, they are maintenance-free with no igniters to replace nor tanks to fill and can be mounted on walls or ceilings. They are supplied with mounting brackets which allow fixing either flat to the surface or angled (see illustrations of suggested applications below).
The lower edge of the panel must be a minimum of 1.8m (6′) above the floor when ceiling mounted with a minimum 30cm (12″) gap between the top of the panel and the floor or ceiling when wall-mounted.
The units are rated IP44 Weatherproof and are supplied with 2m of heat-resistant cable.
As well as Patios & Terraces, these infra-red heaters have a number of uses both outside and indoors in domestic, commercial and institutional applications.
Suggested applications include:
- Patios and terraces
- Pub gardens
- Hotel courtyards
- Offices and reception areas
- Schools and Colleges / Universities
