CAS Hire Ceramic/Infrared Heater Range
Ceramic / infrared heaters work by turning energy into heat rather than light, providing direct controllable warmth whenever required with the minimum of wasted energy.
- Drying and heating construction sites
- Flood restoration sites
- Retail production areas
- Factory production areas
- Localised comfort heating
- Damp removal in workshops, garages, commercial and domestic premises
Good to know:
Other benefits of ceramic or infrared heaters include not drying out the air as some conventional heating can, no harsh unpleasant glare and no noise, all of which lead to a fresher, more comfortable environment.
With lower running costs and less energy wastage than gas heaters, these units are virtually maintenance-free and feature tough ceramic emitters built to take demanding use.
Red Rad Radiant heaters contain a heating element that reaches a high temperature. The element is usually packaged inside a glass envelope resembling a light bulb and with a reflector to direct the energy output away from the body of the heater. The element emits infrared radiation that travels through air or space until it hits an absorbing surface, where it is partially converted to heat and partially reflected. This heat directly warms people and objects in the room, rather than warming the air. This style of heater is particularly useful in areas which unheated air flows through. They are also ideal for basements and garages where spot heating is desired. More generally, they are an excellent choice for task-specific heating. The Ceramic heater works on the same principle as the Red Rad however instead of generating the infrared glow it radiates heat from a ceramic plate contained within the heater itself.
The Red Rad has the additional feature of a tilt-lock adjustable head.
HEATER RECOMMENDATION CHART
It is essential to have the right amount of heat to ensure a warm and comfortable environment. To make sure you do this correctly, simply calculate the area to be heated in square metres, and multiply this by the “heat factor” given in the Heater Recommendation Chart opposite.
The result is the total kw required.
