Residential garage and workshop ceiling-mount infrared gas heater

This infrared radiant tube heater is inspired by our popular commercial products, so you get the efficiency and economy of much more expensive systems in this consumer unit. compactSchwank also uses our Whisper-Jet technology that makes it ultra quiet.

You’ll appreciate the long-wearing heavy duty design. Plus, it comes pre-assembled for an easy installation right out of the box. It comes with an overhead mounting kit that requires only low clearances and hanging heights, and the unit can be angled 30° in either direction to fit space.
