Infrared heating for an entrance hall or a staircase
Because of the presence of exterior doors, interior doors and/or a stairwell, it is not easy to heat a hall or staircase and keep it at the same temperature. The heat rises and gets lost. Conventional radiators heat the air which is immediately replaced by cold air during the opening of an external door. Temperature then drops significantly. The thermostat of the heating system being normally located in the main room, the heating system cannot react to this sudden drop in temperature, which causes the space to stay unpleasantly cold.
Infrared heating for industrial buildings
Basically, this is the same problem as in the entrance hall, but often the ceilings are much higher! People working at the reception are constantly in the cold during the winter months. With infrared heating panels these annoying problems are finally solved. The infrared panels can be discreetly attached in the ceiling or into the walls. Or you can even place your company logo on it with a layer of coating. Your heating panel becomes an instant eye-catcher and contributes to the company’s branding.
Infrared radiant heat
Infrared radiant heat does not heat the air but objects and people. The objects (walls, ceilings, furniture, etc.) absorb radiations which they then give back to the space. As a result, the objects are warmer than the air. In spite of the fact that cold air still comes in via an external door, the perceived temperature doesn’t drop dramatically. Temperature variations are taken care of by a separate thermostat that drives the panel.
An additional argument to choose infrared heating in a hallway is the lack of space. With a coat rack and some storage, a hall is already filled up quite quickly. Infralia heating panels offer a perfect solution: they take up very little space, and can even add decoration or color to your entrance hall.
