About the Herschel Advantage IRP4 Range
The Advantage IRP4 Industrial heater consists of 4 high-emission ceramic heating elements mounted in a directional reflective unit. It is designed to gently warm people indoors using infrared radiated heat. Infrared heat is emitted from the hot surface of the ceramic heaters and warms the body directly without heating the air in between. As soon as the heater is switched on the ceramic elements start to warm up and full operating temperature is achieved in less than 10 minutes. As the energy produced is all in the low medium to far infrared region (not visible), there is no light emitted from the heater, but elements can produce a very faint orange glow.
The Herschel IR must be located in a position to allow for proper and efficient use but one that ensures hot parts are not touched accidentally. The unit is designed to be mounted or suspended from a ceiling. The recommended height for the mounting is 3.5m to 4.0m (137”-158”) from ground level and a minimum 125mm from the ceiling and 1.5m from the nearest wall. The heating elements are at a fixed downward angle to ensure maximum heat arc from this installation height. The Herschel IRP4 MUST NOT be installed at a height of less than 3.5m (137”). Consideration should be given to any temporary or occasional additions such as stages or platforms, and the height should be adjusted accordingly. The Herschel IRP4 should be firmly and permanently attached to the ceiling directly via its own brackets or via appropriate suspension cables.
We recommend the Advantage IRP4 Heater for Industrial and Workshop space heating applications. This ceiling-mounted unit is designed for spaces providing adequate clearance from the ground (3.5 – 4.0m) and from the ceiling above (minimum 125mm) and from the nearest wall (minimum 1.5m). With input power requirements of 2600 watts, these low watt-density heaters give a far higher equivalent heat output compared with hot air or gas-burning “space ray” type heating systems or other forms of electric heating often used in these environments. There are additional benefits:
- As there are no exhaust emissions there is no requirement for planning;
- They operate silently and without fumes – consequently raising no health and safety issues;
- Installation is much cheaper than oil or gas alternatives – all you require is electric cable;
- No maintenance. You do not have to maintain an infrared heater once installed;
- You can “focus” the heat exactly to where you want it – because there is no convection of heat, none is wasted blowing into areas it is not wanted;
- Far Infrared has been shown to have positive effects on metabolism, being the waveband at which water (80% constituent of skin) most effectively absorbs heat.
Space heating can be used anywhere there is a requirement to heat a large volume and where the heaters themselves can be placed well out of reach. So workplaces like workshops, industrial or commercial units, warehouses etc make ideal locations for heaters of this sort.
Why Use Infrared Heating?1) HERSCHEL FAR INFRARED HEATING IS 100% NATURAL FOR OUR BODIES AND OUR WELL-BEING.
The human body is designed to accept and to emit infrared waves. Far Infrared heating works on the basis of gentle, long-wave Infrared which penetrates the air and heats solids. If you like the warmth of the sun then you will love the feeling you get from your new infrared heating system.2 HERSCHEL FAR INFRARED HEATING DOES NOT HEAT AIR BUT THE FABRIC OF THE BUILDING
It is different to more traditional heating systems that just heat the air. The fabric of the building can retain heat for longer, creating better thermal comfort, so your property will not only be warmer and cosier, there will be less dust, and for asthma and allergy sufferers, less pollutants to breathe in.3 LESS DAMP AND MOULD BECAUSE HERSCHEL FAR INFRARED HEATING WARMS WALLS AND KEEPS THEM DRY.
This will mean there is no damp or mould to ruin your decorations and all of the room will reach the same temperature.4 GREATLY REDUCED ENERGY USE.
Experience shows that a sufficiently insulated building fitted with infrared systems and controls can expect significant reductions in energy usage.5 HERSCHEL FAR INFRARED HEATERS REQUIRE NO MAINTENANCE OR SERVICING.
Almost 100% of the electrical energy used by Infrared heaters is converted into heat. Our Infrared systems offer owners an unprecedented level of control over their property’s temperature and energy use, and offer higher thermal comfort levels. Compared with other gas oil or electric solutions, Infrared heating saves between 30 – 60% of the annual energy usage.
Our heaters use solid state elements unlike water-based heating or fan-assisted systems, which often require servicing, inspection and repair costs. Herschel Infrared heaters and control products are certified to national safety standards.6 HERSCHEL FAR INFRARED HEATING IS COMPLETELY FREE OF ALL CARBON EMISSIONS.
When used with electricity produced either by wind or solar generated electrical energy, is one of the only heating systems that can truly claim to be 100% carbon free.
