Description

The Herschel Advantage IR 3 consists of 3 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 3 is an ideal workshop heater for commercial and workspace 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 a power output of 1950 watts, these low watt-density heaters are optimised to produce far greater levels of comfort 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.

Element: 3 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: 9-12m2

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. This will increase the ambient temperature and dependent upon the property age/type and insulation, may increase the effective heated area by up to 100%. 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.

5 reviews for Workshop heater – Herschel Advantage IR 3

  1. Just to confirm our 12 panel heating system is working superb, they are split into 3 sections of 4 heaters as I stated before, and they are already controlling the numbers in use as the area has now warmed to a very acceptable working environment. I do not feel there will be any need to introduce any over door heating at this moment in time, although we are having an exceptionally mild winter. I will most certainly consider using this type of heater in the future.

    Once again than you for your help with this project.

  2. I will have no hesitation in coming back to you in the future and I would certainly recommend your company as the service I have received, including yours has been first class.

  3. I just wanted to thank you for your advice on the type and number of fittings to keep our paint shop drying area warm and dry (from air moisture), they work perfectly, thank you

    The units are really compact and suit our requirements to a tee, we now have a happy spray team.

  4. ou wouldn’t believe the difference it’s made…as certainly makes it comfortable for the team to work whilst based in that area!

  5. Having researched the different forms of heating for our church we decided that Herschel Far infrared heaters were the company that we were most interested in.

    On contacting Matthew Dodds, of Herschel, we found him most helpful and informative. The online assessment of our particular requirements was most useful. The heaters are now up and running and working just as we hoped. All the church members seem to be very impressed.

    I cannot praise Matthew Dodds and Herschel highly enough as they are very efficient with nothing being too much trouble. Peter Rothwell
