Patio Heating: Energy efficient heating of outdoor hospitality areas
Patio heaters have already become part of the standard inventory on the terraces of many restaurants and coffee shops. The trend is continuing since the number of guests that prefer to sit outside even on cold days is increasing. Also, non-smoking laws significantly contribute to this trend.
Gas-fired infrared heaters, being considered to be very pleasant and comfortable, are ideal to heat outdoor areas. Just like the sun, these heaters generate radiation, which in turn is transferred into heat, when it strikes solid matters such as human bodies and the floor. Hence, the air is not heated directly. The reaction time is so quick that guests are feeling the warmth immediately after the heaters have been switched on.
Stadium Heating: Comfort on cold days
Spectators, particularly VIP’s, expect a high level of comfort during their stadium visit. Schwank stadium heaters provide a real advantage from which spectators, as well as stadium operators, can largely benefit. You can heat your stadium grandstand with a modern and highly efficient gas-infrared system. These are expenses that will be offset by a boost of image and comfort.
The applied heating principle is to be compared with the principle of the sun. The electromagnetic waves of the infrared radiation penetrate the air and are warming up surfaces and people. As a consequence, a temperature difference can be reached of 10 K [10 º C] due to the infrared radiation.
