Radiant heat is an efficient way of heating large, poorly insulated, drafty buildings and for heating specific areas. Quartz infra red heaters are well suited to warehouses, factories, garages, sports halls and churches. They are also ideal for intermittent heating where instant response is required. Proximity sensors can be used to ensure the heater is only on when the area is occupied.
Instant heat response allows easy efficient control of individual units or in zones for larger areas. PIR sensors of suitable current rating (CPIR) can be used to only allow heat when the area is occupied. Any air thermostats used should be positioned out of the direct line of heat.

The units must be mounted with the lamps horizontal and the back of the unit at a minimum of 30o to the horizontal. Minimum mounting dimensions must be observed. They should be connected with heat resisting cable to a suitably fused power supply via a 2 pole switched connection unit, having a contact separation of at least 3mm in all poles. Switchgear should be sized to take into account the high initial in rush current.
All electrical connections should be made by a suitably qualified person in accordance with the latest edition of the IEE Requirements for Electrical Installation (BS 7671:2008).
DO NOT locate close to surfaces or materials that may present a risk of fire.
