THERMOFILM Australia has released its new Heatstrip, an energy efficient electric radiant heating panel which will ensure that no permanent or temporary public space need go without heating.
According to Thermofilm Australia managing director Bob Reynolds there are now virtually no building or structure areas where comfort and convenience cannot be provided.
"Thermofilm set out to design and build in Australia an electric heating strip which employs both radiant and convective heating principles to provide an evenly dispersed heated area for restaurants, bars, patios, living and entertainment areas, in fact anything from a single room to a complete stadium," Mr Reynolds said.
The key to the Heatstrip design is an exclusive high surface area, extruded aluminium profile, which radiates the heat efficiently.
This ensures rapid, even distribution to establish a comfortable working or relaxing environment. There is no noise or fumes, no moving parts, no glass components, and no red-hot elements.
The heater casing comes in zinc-plated steel with a tough paint finish.
The innovative design provides a long maintenance free life, supported by a five year heater guarantee.
Based on a commercial electricity tariff of 18 cents a kilowatt hour, efficient heating costs from as little as 15 cents an hour are obtained.
The addition of timers, thermostats or other control options can further minimise heating costs.
The Heatstrip is supplied with optional brackets for angle, suspension, recess or T-bar mounting and can be mounted from 2.2 metres to 8 metres in ceiling height without loss of performance.
Two different series are available in the Heatstrip range. The THH Series offers outputs from 800 to 2400 watts with strip lengths from 700 to 1900mm.
The THS series is rated from 800 to 3600 watts with strip lengths from 695 to 1820mm.
