Schwank Patio heaters

Outdoor patio heaters allow guests to sit outside even on cold days. Also, non-smoking laws, patio heaters are the ultimate comfort for guests that spend more time in outdoor areas. significantly contribute to this trend.

A holiday feeling throughout the whole year and heated smoking zones – that‘s what attracts customers. Environmentally friendly gas-infrared patio heaters are an ideal solution to cater for this trend. Since in many restaurants and hotels, natural gas is used for heating and cooking already, a connection to the network is easy.

Gas-fired infrared outdoor heaters provide ultimate, year round comfort and are ideal to heat outdoor areas. Just like the sun, Schwank Patio 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.

Schwank has developed a patio infrared heater that has been especially designed for the needs of the hospitality industry with a focus on a quick pay-back period. In contrast to common mushroom heaters, terraSchwank is permanently installed without any loss of seating space. Further, there is no need for any annoying replacement of gas bottles or removal of the equipment. Another comfortable feature is the ingenious ignition mechanism: the terraSchwank patio heater can easily be started via one main switch.

Thanks to the latest infrared burner technology, the systems are very energy efficient. Whilst mushroom heaters generate very spotty heat, terraSchwank uniformly distributes the heat even over large areas. The heater is made of robust and very durable materials and can permanently withstand any extreme weather conditions.

More heat means more customers which in turn translates into higher demand for food & beverages – thus higher turnover and profit. The investment for terraSchwank and the associated operational cost can pay off within the first two months of operation.
