  • Manuals & Installation

    Herschel Advantage heaters must be hardwired by a professional electrician. The Herschel IRP4 is suitable only for ceiling mounting in indoor locations. Ceiling brackets are provided; however, you may prefer to suspend the heater from chains to achieve the desired clearance over your heated area. For best results, the heaters should hang between 2.8 – 3.5m from the floor or platform level. Ensure all fitting guidelines provided in the manual are adhered to when the product is installed.

    Please note that the effective heating range of this heater will be impacted by draughts, air flow and weather conditions. Although infrared heat does not heat the air, and will provide the same level of heating to the objects in its path regardless of air flow, persistent powerful draughts will nonetheless cool you faster than the heat can warm you. In ideal conditions in an indoor space, the Advantage IRP4 can heat up to 21m2. In an exposed location, this span may be reduced by up to a third. Do not expect the same comfort besides a gaping warehouse door as you would in a sheltered corner: common sense should prevail.

    It is important to consider the heater’s IP rating when fitting in exposed locations. The Advantage IRP4 has an IP rating of IP20 and offers no protection against ingress from water, so make sure the heater is not installed in a location which is exposed to splashing, dripping or jets of water.

    To ensure that you get the most from your infrared heaters we strongly recommend purchasing with push button, motion sensor or thermostat control for every heater. These heating controllers will switch the heater on or off as needed to maintain the desired temperature – preventing power wastage and saving you money on your heating bills. This small investment will ensure you get maximum efficiency from your heaters with minimum wasted energy.

    If you are at all unsure how many heaters you need, which type to use and where to install them, we will be very happy to provide you with an expert quote tailored to your property. All quotes are free; no project is too big or too small.

  • Warranty
    All Herschel Ceramic Infrared Heaters come with a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

The 2600w Herschel IRP4 Far Infrared Heater is an industrial sized infrared heater ideal for heating warehouses and other large, open spaces. Transforms commercial and industrial spaces into warm and comfortable environments.

Herschel Advantage infrared heaters use Ceramicx FTE convex ceramic heating elements paired with aluminised steel reflectors to efficiently generate far infrared heat and direct it to where it’s needed. These heaters maximise comfort and efficiency by heating up within 5 minutes and warming people directly with a natural heat that feels like the warmth from the sun.

Ceiling-mounted fitting and the flared casing of the IRP4 ensure that heat is radiated with as wide a radius as possible. The stainless steel body is durable and rust-resistant, whilst the white glazed ceramic elements provide discreet warmth without any harsh glare. An innovative heat resistant safety grill protects the hot elements from damage, which is particularly useful in industrial locations.

Ceramic heaters are a great choice for draughty indoor spaces such as warehouses and workshops which are difficult to heat by conventional means. Like all infrared heaters, the radiated heat they produce is highly efficient, warming directly without needing to heat up the air. But unlike glowing quartz heaters, which use a higher frequency of infrared, the far infrared radiation used in ceramic heaters is gentle enough to provide comfortable heating for hours on end. This is ideal in hard-to-heat indoor spaces which are occupied for prolonged periods of time, such as factories, function rooms, churches, industrial units and sports halls. The lack of visible light is also a major benefit, providing a more discreet fitting with no distracting orange glow.

The Advantage IRP4 is designed for ceiling suspension. Suitable brackets are included with the product; however, you may wish to use suspension chains or an alternative mounting method to bring the heater closer to the area you want it to heat. For best results, the heaters should hang between 2.8 – 3.5m from ground level. The IRP4 is only suitable for indoor use and must be installed by a professional electrician. Once fitted, the IRP4 requires the bare minimum of maintenance; all you need to do is keep it clean. Solid state elements and the highest standards of manufacturing guarantee a long-lifespan, backed by a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

Herschel Advantage heaters are compatible with most thermostatic controllers which offer increased efficiency and energy-saving potential. For indoor spaces, Herschel’s iQ system is ideal, offering thermostatic control to an unlimited number of heaters.

Far Infrared Heating

The Herschel Advantage IRP4 uses far infrared radiation to deliver optimum comfort. This is the most natural, comfortable and efficient form of infrared on the market.

Infrared radiation maximises energy-efficiency by heating objects directly, passing through the air to heat people and objects, just as the sun warms you on a winter's day despite the coldness of the air. But unlike sunlight, which includes harmful UV rays, infrared is a pure, natural heat form which is entirely safe, with many health benefits. Infrared sidesteps the disadvantages of conventional outdoor heating products – which heat by convection and expend huge quantities of energy reheating air which is immediately lost to cooler spaces. Because infrared heaters do not need to compensate for heat lost in this manner, they can operate at much lower temperatures than other forms of outdoor heating, saving you money on your heating bills.

Far infrared is a longwave form of infrared which is gentler but more easily absorbed by the body than the shortwave infrared given off by glowing quartz heaters. It is the most efficient choice for draughty indoor spaces because it warms thoroughly and comfortably, with all heat absorbed and none wasted. In comparison, shortwave radiation feels more intense against your skin, but won’t warm you to the core. Far infrared is the same frequency of heat given off by our bodies: it is natural, gentle, safe, and so effective that it is used in incubators for babies.

Boasting near total energy efficiency, with almost 100% of the energy used by the heater converted into effective heat, Herschel infrared heaters offer an exceptionally efficient heating solution for outdoor and indoor spaces.
