Catering Heating

Kitchens and catering areas such as restaurants are often overlooked as areas that require high levels of heating. However, they are some of the chilliest parts of buildings as a result of large open spaces and metal surfaces that retain little heat. To ensure favourable working environments in professional kitchens and large catering areas, specialised heating systems are vital. However, due to the specific need of these spaces to adhere to meticulous levels of hygiene and safety, finding the perfect heating solution is not straightforward.

Traditional heating systems are not only unsuitable for these areas but are also unsafe, putting the professionalism of the space at jeopardy. This is because heaters containing glass are hazardous for use in near proximity to food, in case of the glass breaking and dropping in to the food. Furthermore, blow-air heaters unsettle dust, whilst emitting carbon dioxide and small quantities of carbon monoxide making these types of heaters unfitting for these specific environments.

Innovative infrared heating technology is making safe, energy efficient and cost-effective heating possible, whilst removing all of the risk traditionally associated. This is as a result of the specialised ceramic elements that replace glass in these infrared heaters, making them the perfect heating solution for catering environments.

Benefits of using infrared heating in catering environments:

  • Heaters contain ceramic elements and no glass.
  • Perfect for the kitchen environment as they don’t unsettle dust, as well as producing zero emissions, providing a safe and sterile solution to heating.
  • Instantly heat up large open spaces using infrared technology, directly warming up surfaces and people without having to heat up all the air in the large space, which is slow and uneconomical.
  • Infrared heaters can be mounted on walls and ceilings, as to not take up valuable space in kitchens and catering spaces. This also allows zone control to reduce energy wastage and costs.
  • Cost effective and energy efficient way to heat these professional spaces.
  • Easy and fast to install and maintenance free.

I purchased a wall mounted infrared panel for my conservatory - it has worked very well in keeping the area comfortably warm even during the coldest weather. Glenn Nash

I bought this infrared panel heater from this company to heat a small office in my shop. Their website was easy to use and gave useful information to choose the correct wattage for my space. The order arrive quickly. It was easy to attach to the wall and only needed to be plugged into a wall socket. It has been working well and I am very pleased with it. I would order from this company again.

A big thank you for the wonderful panel. I was able to measure the area needed and select the correct sized panel, and yes it heats well and very little added costs to my electricity bill each month. I will be buying a couple more for other rooms.

Already bought 2 infrared panels from this company. Both times service was great an all went smoothly. The panels work great and although I was sceptical about its perm once before buying it, after installing it, it works great and I went to buy a second one. Very easy to install and great value for money. Very sleek and thin as well. Thank you

‘We find the 350 watt FIR heater ideal when sitting at a desk or in a comfy chair – a gentle heat which keeps you warm in a cold room. You can run it for hours and only use a unit or two of electricity.’ Andrew King

We have a 1900s terraced house with a rear "lean to" designed kitchen with a chimney and open fire. We have had a variety of coal fires and back burner boilers, some with a gas fire on the front. The chimney was always a problem due to a poor design of the kitchen chimney and its position near the main house roof. Finally we opted for a modern wall mounted gas boiler which vented through the kitchen wall. The options for heating the kitchen itself were an extension to the main radiator system or electric heaters. Like all fitted kitchens floor space was a problem. We decided to try an IR panel mounted on the ceiling and controlled through a simple socket plug-in thermostat with the intention of adding another if successful. It worked perfectly and so far we have not needed another. Choosing, buying and delivery was painless. No problems at all - thoroughly recommended.
