A warehouse requires a ‘no frills’, reliable heating system which is both effective and economic. BN Thermic offers two distinctly different warehouse heating systems. The following notes are designed to help you select the approach that this best for your warehouse.
Space heating a warehouse will require heaters that are capable of building up and maintaining a body of warm air. This is generally achieved using industrial fan heaters (see below). An effective thermostatic control is vital to ensure that running costs are kept in check. Space heating systems can be used to provide a comfortable working environment for staff or to protect product from the effect of low temperatures.
Warehouses can be vast and often have frequently opening roller shutter doors. For these reasons, it is often not practical to consider heating in a conventional sense. As an alternative, halogen heaters (see below) can provide spot heating for specific areas within an otherwise unheated warehouse. A classic example would be a packing area.

Industrial Fan Heaters
A BN Thermic Industrial fan heater is the ideal space heater for a warehouse. The OUH2 is UK built and is backed by an extended 5-year warranty. The heater case is an all-steel construction, designed to withstand the knocks and bumps inevitable in an industrial environment.
The heater is supplied with a rugged mounting bracket for wall or ceiling as well as hooks to facilitate suspension if preferred. This means that whatever the layout of your warehouse we can always find a suitable mounting position.
It is perhaps obvious that a large warehouse requires a large heater. With outputs up to 25kW, BN Thermic’s OUH2 certainly ticks that box. Additionally, the OUH2’s high air flow ensures even heat distribution and quickest possible warm up time.
Without effective thermostatic temperature control, warehouse heating systems can be expensive to run. For this reason, every BN Thermic industrial heater has a high quality, built-in thermostat. The heaters have also been designed for easy integration with frost thermostats and programmable timers.
Space heating a warehouse is often impractical if not impossible. A cost effective alternative is spot heating using halogen heaters. Halogen heaters are mounted at high level and emit shortwave energy that passes through the air with virtually no losses until it is experienced as warmth by people entering its target area. Using this technology, heat can be provided to a specific area within an otherwise unheated warehouse. Halogen heaters are instantly effective, meaning that there is no need to heat an unoccupied area. Control devices such as time switches and movement sensors can be used to ensure optimum economy.
The management at BN Thermic can certainly attest to the money saving benefits of halogen heating. In 2012 the space heating system at BN Thermic’s production and warehouse facility was replaced by a number of halogen heaters all controlled by time switches. The resulting reduction in electricity costs amounted to £20,000 per annum!
