- Light intensity reduced for lower height installations
- IP55 rating: Completely safe to install and leave in outdoor locations
- Long lamp life: An average lamp life of 7000 hours operation means minimal ‘down time’ and a corresponding saving in the cost of spare lamps
- Precision parabolic reflector: The highly polished and precision designed parabolic reflector efficiently focuses the shortwave energy at the target area ensuring maximum benefit from every kW consumed
- Safety Guard: Prevents accidental contact with the heat lamp.
- Mounting bracket and suspension lugs provided: A choice of mounting systems allows the heaters to be positioned exactly as required to focus output precisely on the target area. The brackets allow ‘up and down’ adjustment.
How do the Patio Heaters work?
BN Thermic HWP patio heaters use quartz heat lamps to produce shortwave energy. This energy is directed at the required target area by a precision designed parabolic reflector. Shortwave energy moves in straight lines from the reflector to the target area without heating the air in between. However once the energy is absorbed by solid bodies, which could be objects or people, it is experienced as heat. Shortwave energy cannot be blown off course by breezes and draughts making it ideally suited to outdoor use.
The HWP patio heaters are supplied with adjustable brackets for wall mounting. Alternatively the heaters can be suspended using wires or chains. As the BN Thermic HWP patio heaters are 100% effective the instant they are switched on, there is no need to pre-warm an area. For this reason it is a good idea to use control devices that ensure that an occupied area is not heated. Typically these would be time delay switches or movement sensors.
