INFRA-red heaters, available from Kennards Hire , are an good way to warm up large, draughty workplaces, amenity areas, and function rooms.
They plug into a normal power point and, being on wheels, can be moved around easily.
Infra-red heaters are different to radiant heaters in that they will warm people and objects three to four metres away, even in draughty areas. This makes them suitable for situations involving groups of people standing around or sitting at a table.
There is no warm-up time - turn on the electricity, and the heat is instant. They have twin bars, which can be used separately or together, producing a maximum output of 2500 watts.
Kennards' other winter heating options include mushroom, patio and space heaters.
