Infrared radiant heaters of the IR series
Enjoying warmth – even with 80% reduced brightness
Immediately after switching on the IR series radiant heater, you will feel the soothing warmth on your skin. Intense heat that is produced selectively and without the need for preheating – a clean way of heating without causing noises, smells or dust circulation, hence also suitable for allergy sufferers. For the heat is produced following the natural principle of the sun: by means of infrared radiation, which heats up solid objects such as walls, the floor and the ceiling instead of the room air. These objects can store the heat for a longer period than the air and then release it in the form of secondary radiation.
The modern IR radiators heat up their direct surroundings not only quickly but also economically. As they convert a large part of the energy used directly into heat, infrared radiant heaters are especially energy-efficient compared to a hot air blower, for instance. This is the very reason why they are perfectly suited as standby heating solution – and they can be optimally used for all applications requiring targeted heat.
100 % intense warmth with 80 % light reduction
The radiant heaters of the IR series use the new low-glare short-wave technology. Thanks to this innovation, the bright red light, which is frequently perceived as disturbing, is significantly reduced by up to 80 % – while one hundred percent of the heat intensity is maintained during the long lifetime of up to 6,000 hours. For the high-quality low-glare short-wave infrared tube generates a larger proportion of infrared light in the invisible light spectrum and additionally focusses the rays thanks to an innovative coating procedure, which also reduces the scattering loss.
The greatly reduced light radiation only affects the existing lighting concepts to a very little extent – in point of fact, the infrared heat even provides a pleasant candlelight atmosphere.

IP55/IP65 type of protection
Infrared radiant heaters are available in many different versions for outdoor use. An important criterion for device selection is whether or not your radiant heater may be exposed to water or plenty of dust at its site of assembly or installation. Moreover, depending on the site of installation, water jets may reach the housing in some way or other. An infrared radiant heater installed on your terrace should be able to withstand occasional downpours. Heaters used in the workshop, however, should be protected against dust to a certain extent.
The IP55/IP65 type of protection promises that dust cannot enter the housing and that the radiant heater will withstand water jets from all sides. The robust design permits both the installation on balconies or terraces and the use at winter sports events. Owing to their dust protection these radiant heaters can also be used in industrial buildings with high dust concentrations.
No matter where the radiant heaters of the IR series are put into operation – they remain tight. This is promised by their robust construction with IP55/IP65 protection: neither water or moisture nor dust can enter their housing. The radiant heaters even withstand water jets from all sides without any damage. The radiant heaters of the IR series are ideally suited for balconies and terraces without a roof since they handle occasional showers with ease.
Overview of the maximum heating range of the infrared radiant heaters:
heating capacity per m²
|Area that can be covered by an infrared heater
|with 750 W||with 1,500 W||with 2,000 W||with 3,000 W|
approx. 150 W/m²
|approx. 5 m²||approx. 10 m²||approx. 14 m²||approx. 20 m²|
approx. 250 W/m²
|approx. 3 m²||approx. 6 m²||approx. 8 m²||approx. 12 m²|
You can proceed as follows to calculate the heating capacity (in watts) required for your room size:
Formula: m² x W/m² = W
room size (m²) x recommended heating capacity per square metre (W/m²) = required heating capacity of the infrared radiator (W)
For a well insulated room sized 20 m² we recommend the following heating capacity: 20 m² x 100 W/m² = 2,000 W
