Radiant Heating is ideal for spot or localised heating mounted overhead, working in the same way as the sun, radiant heat warms all solid objects and surfaces in its path through infrared waves.
- Sports Halls
- Aircraft Hangers
- Play centres
- Packing areas
- Climbing Centres
Radiant Heating works by heating Objects and People rather than heating the air space around them (Please take a look at Warm Air Heating for Air Space Heating).
Radiant heaters produce infrared heat that is directed downwards to low level by a reflector. Infrared energy passes through the air and dissipates as heat when it comes into contact with people and surfaces creating a comfortable, all-round radiant heat.
Radiant heat takes only minutes to reach comfortable temperatures, so energy is never wasted in waiting for the heater to warm up.
If external doors are opened, allowing cold air to enter the building, radiant heating will recover comfortable temperatures in just a few minutes.If you are looking for efficiency while reducing energy costs quality radiant tube heaters will deliver…
Radiant Heating Benefits
- Reduced running costs. Savings of up to 65% of fuel costs can be achieved
- Even heat coverage at low level
- Radiant Heating is a great way of heating a specific area in a large space (eg: Packing Bench in a Warehouse)
- Does not directly heat the air
- Minimises roof heat losses – reduced stratification
- Systems can be controlled easily to provide varying zoned temperatures and operating times
- Radiant Heating is regulated by the use of black bulb sensors and control units, allowing you to set the temperature you need in a specific area.
- Rapid heat up and recovery times
- Quiet Draft Free Heat
- Environmentally Friendly
- Easy to install and operate
- Radiant heating can run on Natural Gas, LPG, or Oil
Gas fired continuous radiant tube heating systems can be designed for the building it is required to heat using the following factors :
- Heat loss of the building for the required thermal environment
- Local climate conditions
- Type of activity in the building
- Specific architectural features relating to the structure
These systems are designed to provide uniform heat coverage over an entire floor area.It can also heat different zones providing a varied levels of warmth within the overall layout of the building.
Herringbone systems are specifically designed to suit individual building requirements; they can incorporate up to 10 ‘U’ tube or linear heaters on one exhaust manifold. The exhaust manifold may be terminated through the wall terminal.
The particular benefits of herringbone systems are:
- Optimised energy efficiencies
- All units share a common internal flue thereby raising efficiency within the building
Minimal risk of water ingress – combustion products to be expelled via a single exit from the building.
