HEAT-RAD radiant heating systems have been tested and examined
by British Gas and found to comply with the essential requirements detailed
in Annexe 1 of the European Gas Supplier's Directive (90/396/EEC), Certificate
No. BG/EC-87/96/212. The manufacture of HEAT-RAD units is monitored by
British Gas, Certificate of Registration No. ECS-00134 and Horizon International
are authorised to place the CE mark and the British Gas Notified Body
identification symbol (0087) on HEAT-RAD products.
What is Radiant Heat
Radiated heat is similar to light, it does not warm
the air through which it passes but directly heats objects such as men
or machines. Like light, radiated heat can be reflected to concentrate
the heat where it is needed i.e. at the working level.
How Does it Work
HEAT-RAD provides warmth via radiated heat, assisted
by the polished reflectors forming an integral part of the units. Unlike
other systems e.g. warm air systems, HEAT-RAD does not waste fuel by heating
the roof space before the benefit reaches the shop floor. HEAT-RAD does
not create convection but warms walls, floors and machinery to form a
heat reservoir. This means that the system is switched on only a short
time before work begins, with no wasted energy by the system having to
warm the building prior to occupation.
What is HEAT-RAD
HEAT-RAD is a highly efficient gas-fired tubular heating
unit. An automatically controlled burner unit is connected into one end
of a wide bore steel tube, at the other end a suction fan ensures that
after ignition hot gases and air are drawn through the tube which gets
hot and radiates heat to the area below.
Why Choose HEAT-RAD
HEAT-RAD is manufactured in Bristol by Horizon,
and is backed by a team of engineers to advise on technical surveys,
sales and after sales service.
The HEAT-RAD radiant heating system provides a fast
and controllable heat, they occupy no floor space and provide for
substantial fuel savings over other systems, by avoiding long warm-up
periods or round-the- clock heating. They can also be used to heat
occasional work areas bringing them up to adequate comfort levels
without the need for permanent background heating.
