HALOGEN SHORTWAVE HEATERS

« BACK TO INDEX »

KH - Halogen Heaters

KH 1.5R KH 4.5R

APPLICATION

Halogen heaters emit short wave radiant energy that passes through the air with minimal losses and is converted to warmth when absorbed by a solid body.  They also deliver 100% of their output the instant they are energised. These characteristics make halogen heaters ideal for heating infrequently used areas in which it is not practical to build up a body of warm air. Typical applications include community halls, workshops and loading bays.

FEATURES OPTIONS

  • Bracket for wall mounting
  • Halogen lamp with choice of ruby or neutral density (gold glow) filter
  • Kit to allow heaters to be suspended from chains. Ref. KHK
  • Passive infrared movement detector. Ref. KMD
  • Combined dimmer and on/off switch. Ref. KDS1

DiagramHeat Requirements

Use Table 1 to determine the total kW output required. The W/m² applicable to the type of activity and the nature of the building should be multiplied by the total area in m². The 'spot heating' figure should be used when heating a section of an otherwise unheated building. The output, position and mounting height of the heaters can be determined using Table 2. We suggest that the areas covered by individual heaters are allowed to overlap by 10% to 15% to ensure even coverage.

Spot Heating

As an additional guide to spot heating, we would recommend heating from two directions, to cover the area from opposite sides. This will ensure an overall feeling of comfort and warmth. A heat loading of 250-300 W/m² can be considered as a guide for this type of area.
