INFRARED RADIANT HEATER IRD 1800
Direct, clean warmth without any lighting effect
Appealing solution for wind-protected outdoor areas
Comforting infrared heat generated without the visible, brightly illuminated heater tube that is standard for all conventional devices – this high-class, innovative solution of the infrared radiant heater IRD 1800 is what wins people over. The heat source is shielded from view, because it comes equipped with a covered stainless steel heating coil that is enclosed in aluminium.
Infrared radiant heaters: the key to an inherently consistent lighting concept in outdoor areas. For the additional bright red light of “normal” IR radiators would be utterly disturbing and clash with the present lighting concept.
Owing to its simultaneously minimalistic and classy design the infrared radiant heater fits in seamlessly with any environment. At first sight the device impresses with its innovative and aesthetically pleasing design – consequently it is suited both for use in the refined catering trade or in a neat private ambience.
The IRD 1800 emits most of its radiation energy in the medium- and long-wave infrared spectrum, which is why it can distribute heat in an even and targeted manner without heating the ambient air. Hence, the device is ideally suited for use in outdoor areas that are sheltered from the wind such as balconies and terraces. As such, it can be applied in the catering trade.
The device leaves a good impression when located outdoors seeing as it comes with IP55 type of protection which makes it dust-, splash- and water-jet-proof.
Innovative technology paired with high-class comfort
The IRD 1800 generates heat in a clean, condensation-free, odourless and noiseless way. And without raising dust – which makes it suitable for allergy sufferers. The elegant aluminium housing of the infrared radiant heater not only contains innovative technology, but also a number of convenient equipment features: with its heating capacity of 1,800 W the high-performance radiator supplies a soothing warmth outdoors, it can be set to 3 heating levels – using an IR remote control if desired – thus covering an extensive heating range. The inclination angle that can be adjusted by 90° further enhances the effective range.
The equipment of the IRD 1800 is completed by a 24-hour timer, an operation indicator light and an LED display. An appropriate holder for using the device whilst mounted to the wall or ceiling is also included in the scope of delivery. The device is completely maintenance-free seeing as no illuminant needs to be replaced.

Overview of the maximum heating range to be covered by a 1,800 watt infrared radiant heater:
heating capacity per m²
|Area that can be
covered by an infrared heater
with 1,800 W
approx. 150 W/m²
|approx. 12 m²|
approx. 250 W/m²
|approx. 7 m²|
You can proceed as follows to calculate the heating capacity (in watts) required for your room size:
Formula: m² x W/m² = W
room size (m²) x recommended heating capacity per square metre (W/m²) = required heating capacity of the infrared radiator (W)
Sample calculation: For a well insulated room sized 18 m² we recommend the following heating capacity: 18 m² x 100 W/m² = 1,800 W
Protection type IP55: provides protection against water, humidity and dust
Infrared radiant heaters are available in many different versions for indoor and outdoor use. An important criterion for device selection is whether or not your radiant heater may be exposed to water or plenty of dust at its site of assembly or installation. If an infrared radiant heater is mounted in the bathroom, for instance, it operates at high humidity levels. Moreover, depending on the site of installation, water jets may reach the housing in some way or other. An infrared radiant heater installed on your terrace should be able to withstand occasional downpours. Heaters used in the workshop, however, should be protected against dust to a certain extent.
The IP55 type of protection promises that dust cannot settle within the housing and that the radiant heater can withstand water jets from all sides. The robust design permits both the installation on balconies or terraces and the use at winter sports events. Owing to their dust protection these radiant heaters can also be used in industrial buildings.
