Infrarad Ltd has launched a range of heating products new to the UK market, which use infrared technology and is designed to be more cost-effective than traditional central heating.
Founded in May 2012 by Peter Ferguson and Avic International Renewable Energy Co, Infrarad now offers three product ranges, which all use radiant heat.
Ferguson said: “We use the same method as the sun’s rays. The energy is emitted in the form of infrared rays which heat only the solid objects they land on including the occupants of the room.
“This means that, whereas a traditional method of calculating a standard room’s requirement for heat is based on 50W m3, with infrared panels only 25W m3 is required. Because the Infrarad units heat by radiation rather than convection, they are more efficient and do not create a stuffiness inside the room.”
The Contract range is a collection of five lightweight composite panels designed for wall- or floor-mounting. Three hard-wired models are available in output ratings of 500W, 800W and 1kW.
The Curve is a portable heating system and is a variation on the Contract panel concept with a convex curved surface. Available in plain gloss black and plain gloss white, this unit comes with rated power outputs of both 250W and 350W, and measures 750mm x 480mm x 20mm.
Also available is “The Designer” glass panel towel-warmers, which are designed for wall-mounting in all bathrooms irrespective of the heating system.
