Infrared radiant heaters of the IR series

Enjoying warmth – with less red light

Immediately after switching on the IR series radiant heater, you will feel the soothing warmth on your skin. Intense heat that is produced selectively and without the need for preheating – a clean way of heating without causing noises, smells or dust circulation, hence also suitable for allergy sufferers. For the heat is produced following the natural principle of the sun: by means of infrared radiation, which heats up solid objects such as walls, the floor and the ceiling instead of the room air. These objects can store the heat for a longer period and then release it in the form of secondary radiation.

The modern IR radiators heat up their direct surroundings not only quickly but also economically. Seeing as they convert a great deal of the energy input into direct heat, the infrared radiators are particularly energy-efficient as compared to say hot air blowers. This is why they are perfectly suited as a standby heating solution – and they can be used in an ideal way wherever targeted heat is required.

100 % intense warmth with 80 % light reduction

Low-glare principle

The radiant heaters of the IR series use the new low-glare short-wave technology. Thanks to this innovation, the bright red light, which is frequently perceived as disturbing, is significantly reduced by up to 80 % – while one hundred percent of the heat intensity is maintained during the long lifetime of up to 6,000 hours. For the high-quality low-glare short-wave infrared tube generates a larger proportion of infrared light in the invisible light spectrum and additionally focusses the rays thanks to an innovative coating procedure, which also reduces the scattering loss. The greatly reduced light radiation only affects the existing lighting concepts to a very little extent – in point of fact, the infrared heat even provides a pleasant candlelight atmosphere.

IP65 rating – provides protection against water, humidity and dust

No matter where the radiant heaters of the IR series are put into operation – they remain tight. This is promised by their robust construction with IP65 protection: neither water or moisture nor dust can enter their housing. The radiant heaters even withstand water jets from all sides without any damage. The IR 2010 and the IR 2050 are ideally suited for balconies and terraces without a roof since they handle occasional showers with ease.

Tested for safety by SGS

The IR 2010 and IR 2050 are supplied in TÜV-tested quality, thus guaranteeing high value, safety and functionality and making sure that you are always on the safe side with Trotec brand quality.

IP65 type of protection

Overview of the maximum heating range to be covered by infrared radiant heaters:

Application area Recommended
heating capacity per m²
Area that can be covered by an infrared heater
with 750 W with 1,500 W with 2,000 W
Outside Sheltered:
approx. 150 W/m²
approx. 5 m² approx. 10 m² approx. 13 m²
No shelter:
approx. 250 W/m²
approx. 3 m² approx. 6 m² approx. 8 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 20 m² we recommend the following heating capacity: 20 m² x 100 W/m² = 2,000 W

IP65 type of protection

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 IP65 type of protection promises that dust cannot enter the housing and that the radiant heater will withstand water jets from all sides. The robust design is suitable for both installation on balconies or terraces and use during winter sports events. Owing to their dust protection these radiant heaters can also be used in industrial buildings with high dust concentrations.
