RVR supply a range of radiant heaters from Detroit Radiant Products Co. These are some of our longest standing products and some of these radiant heaters have been in continuous use in churches and halls throughout Ireland for up to 30 years!

Introduction to Radiant Heating

A gas fired infra-red heating system emulates the efficiency of the sun by generating radiant energy that is converted into heat when absorbed by objects in its path. Once the infra-red energy is absorbed by the floors, machinery, stock and people, it is then re-radiated to warm the surrounding air.

This method of heating, as opposed to filling a room with warm air (such as a forced air unit) allows the source of heat to begin at the floor level and not the ceiling. This makes it the most efficient and effective method in which to heat under the diverse conditions present in warehouses, storerooms, outdoor smoking areas and patios.

Gas Fired Radiant Plaque Heaters

The RV Series is commonly used in areas with high air infiltration, high ceilings and/or spot heating applications. The RV Series is available in a multitude of configurations, ranging from 8.8 to 46.9 kW.

The RV Series of infra-red heaters is ideal in applications where unvented high intensity heat offers design benefits or is preferred. The RV Series is also ideal for unvented spot heating applications.

Radiant Heating Controls

Our radiant control panels include a microcontroller equipped thermostat with LCD display, which can control up to 8 radiant heaters. Each individual heater can operate under automatic temperature control. An override facility can also be used to switch each heater permanently ON or OFF when required.

A ‘black bulb’ radiant sensor is supplied with the Single Zone Radiant Heater Control Panel and two ‘black bulb’ radiant sensors are supplied with the Two Zone Control Panel. This is located in the heated zone and wired back to the panel using a two core screened cable.
