If you're looking for a heater for a workshop heater or garage, you've come to the right place. At Heat Outdoors we have pioneered infrared heating for hundreds of domestic and commercial environments. We offer an exceptional range of infrared heating systems. Many of which are suitable for workshops and garages.
Gone are the days when garage and workshop heaters were only available in older style warm air heater models. These required a huge warm up time with high running costs, and more importantly little warmth! The Heat Outdoors comes with 3 mounting options. They can be wall mounted, freestanding or hanging infrared heaters. This ensures you will have all the instant heat you need. They provide instant warm up times all without the excessive expense.
Within this advanced space heater range we have an ideal heating solution for almost every workshop or garage space. Infrared garage heating, unlike standard radiant heating options, offers instant heat. The directional infrared waves warm the individual, and objects around. By avoiding over heating of the air and instead providing directed personal heat, you save the costs. Avoid heating your garage or workshop space as a whole. Heat exactly where you need the heat to be.
Heat Outdoors range of infrared warehouse and workshop heater packs are perfect for these spaces. These smaller commercial spaces still require a good level of industrial type heat. The warehouse and workshop range is great for locations where mounting heights are much close to the workspace. In these areas a more comfortable level of controllable heat is preferable. The diagram below offers guidance of the heat coverage. The images show what to expect from a wall mounted Warehouse heater.
The infrared warehouse heater range is suitable for ceiling mounting up to 3.5m high. The warehouse range is designed for ceiling or wall mounted locations.
There are a number of factors which will impact how much heat you will need. Firstly, and possibly most importantly, the size of the area you want to cover should be considered. Even the most powerful infrared heater will struggle to provide sufficient heat if underspecified for the space in question.
At Heat Outdoors we roughly base our specifications on the ‘rule of thumb’ that 1kW of heat will adequately cover an area of approx. 5 square meters of floor space when used in workshops. Other external factors will affect this measurement. The level of airflow through the area is the first factor. The mounting heights that can be achieved is the second factor. Finally the personal preferences as to how warm you actually want the area to be and feel. The heating level required will of course differ for different workers. For instance active workers who are already clocking up plenty of kinetic warmth require less heat. Workers who are stationary positioned at workstations or benches will need more.
We are always here to help you make the right decision. Our knowledgeable specification team are available by phone, email, live chat, and online forms. Send us in photographs, specification drawings, diagrams or measurements. Our team will be sure to provide a comprehensive workshop heating plan for you.
The Shadow infrared heater is perfect for workshops or warehouses. It provides focused heat for industrial work bench and packing areas. For longer bench or parking area spaces, we would generally specify multiple single lamp heaters. These can be spaced along the full length of the area. This type of multiple infrared heater installation would efficiently heat a long slim area.
For larger packing areas or work bench spaces, double infrared hanging heaters over the work area are suitable. They would offer a superb, consistent and proportionate heat output without the need for wall fixings. In addition, they don't take up valuable floor space.
Electric infrared workshop heaters provide instant heat in zones so that heat is used in only the areas that require it and only they need it. This creates a very efficient heating solution.
With adjustable hanging chains and a wall mounting bracket sent as standard with almost all 3kW + models, you can achieve a warm and unobstructed working space. The supply of both these fixing types will further allow you to adjust the installation type. This allows for flexibility should a remodel or redesign of your workspace require this. Providing workable, versatile infrared heating options that can be modified in line with your workspace.
For working areas that do not have the facility for hanging or wall mounted heaters, the shadow infrared free standing heater options are a great alternative. Offering mobile personal heating, that can be rearranged with ease. The Shadow free standing infrared range provides superb inbuilt safety features. These include anti tilt sensors and touch guards to assist in providing a warm, but safe, work bench or packing space.
