supraSchwank Highlights

The most efficient gas-infrared Schwank tube heaters

supraSchwank heaters are the most advanced line of infrared heaters in Schwank’s collection of high intensity heaters, which can be mounted on ceilings up to 180’ high and still provide total comfort.

The fully insulated supraSchwank is made from Feran, which is known to be one of the most reflective materials available. The unique construction minimizes convection heat loss and increases energy efficiency.

Schwank’s patented Delta Mixing Chamber preheats the gas/air combustion mixture to deliver a uniform and ultra-efficient heat delivery at work level.

The supraSchwank radiant heater not only produces more heat but also directs more heat exactly where it is needed. supraSchwank also contributes up to 10 out of 30 possible LEED points to your energy and atmosphere category for new and retrofit commercial projects!
