Industrial & Commercial Infrared Radiant Heater Applications
Warm people, not air
The key advantage of Schwank infrared radiant heating is its ability to provide comfort, without needing to heat the surrounding air. This is why IR heaters are used for large open spaces such as distribution and manufacturing areas.
Radiant heating is more energy efficient than simply heating air, especially for spaces that have a high air change rate per hour, such as loading docks and maintenance faculties. ASHRAE Standard 90.1 requires the use of IR heaters when unenclosed spaces such as loading docks are to be heated.
