Description

The Herschel Advantage IR 2 consists of 2 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 Advantage IR must be located in a position to allow proper and efficient use but one that ensures hot parts are not touched accidentally. The recommended installation height of the Advantage is 2.3m to 2.5m (90”-98”) from the floor and under no circumstances is it to be installed at less than 2.3m from the floor.  In all cases it should be installed at a height where it cannot be touched in operation.  Consideration should be given to any temporary or occasional additions such as stages or platforms, and the height should be adjusted accordingly. The Herschel ADVANTAGE IR should be firmly and permanently attached to the wall using the bracket supplied, with the heaters angled down at 60 degrees from vertical.

Functional Description

The heating elements reach very high temperatures without visible signs of the unit being on. Because Advantage IR2 & IR3 are not fitted with a protective grill, the heaters are not for domestic or household use. Also, the heaters must not be used or installed in any commercial premises where they can be accidentally touched or where there is a risk of damage to the ceramic elements.

The Herschel Advantage IR Heater is an ideal workspace heater for Industrial and Workshop applications. This wall-mounted unit is designed for spaces with walls giving adequate clearance from the ground (2.3 – 2.5m) and from the ceiling above (minimum 0.3m). With power output of 1300 watts, these low watt-density heaters are optimised to provide far greater levels of comfort than 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.

Element: 2 x White or black-glazed ceramic longwave Infrared emitters (3-10 microns)

Body: Stainless Steel or Black powder-coated body.

Voltage: 230V, 50 Hz

Protection: IPX4

Guarantee: 5 years

Heated Zone: 6-9m2

The heater will directly warm people and objects within the Heated Zone (note: air movement may reduce area coverage). Within enclosed areas the thermal mass of the building will also be heated within the entire zone.  Dependent upon the property age/type, insulation levels, number of heaters used and running times this will increase the ambient temperatures. For larger commercial projects or where different mounting heights are required we would always recommend Herschel carry out a survey or detailed desktop assessment.

Quality & Safety

The heating elements reach very high temperatures without visible signs of the unit being on. Because Advantage IR2 & IR3 are not fitted with a protective grill, the heaters are not for domestic or household use. Also, the heaters must not be used or installed in any commercial premises where they can be accidentally touched or where there is a risk of damage to the ceramic elements.

1 review for Workspace heater – Herschel Advantage IR 2

  1. Since fitting the Hershel heaters in my garage condensation on my lovely cars, during the winter months, is a thing of the past! Using the lowest temperature setting of 5 degrees with the thermostatic control has been an effective inexpensive solution to a significant issue. A further advantage is the ability to warm the garage when working on my cars in the winter months making working on them during this period a much more pleasant experience. These heaters really provide an effective solution to the care of ones vehicles during the winter months.
