Features & Benefits

Feature Benefit

Shortwave Technology

HWP heaters utilise shortwave technology to provide direct heat to people without the need to warm the surrounding air.  Shortwave energy cannot be blown off course by a breeze making it suitable for outdoor use.

Halogen Lamp

The high quality infrared halogen lamp produces shortwave radiant energy that can pass through the air with virtually no losses until it is experienced as warmth by people entering its target area,

The lamp will be 100% effective the instant it is switched on.

Choice of two lamp types

(1.5kW heaters use a frosted lamp with a ‘natural’ light output

2kW [and above] heaters use a gold filtered lamp with an extended heating range)

Light intensity reduced for lower height installations

IP55 rating

Completely safe to install and leave in outdoor locations

Long lamp life

An average lamp life of 7000 hours operation means minimal ‘down time’ and a corresponding saving in the cost of spare lamps

Precision parabolic reflector

The highly polished and precision designed parabolic reflector efficiently focuses the shortwave energy at the target area ensuring maximum benefit from every kW consumed

Safety Guard

Prevents accidental contact with the heat lamp.

Mounting bracket and suspension lugs provided

A choice of mounting systems allows the heaters to be positioned exactly as required to focus output precisely on the target area.  The brackets allow ‘up and down’ adjustment.

 

How it Works

HWP patio heaters use quartz heat lamps to produce shortwave energy.  This energy is directed at the required target area by a precision designed parabolic reflector.  Shortwave energy moves in straight lines from the reflector to the target area without heating the air in between.  However once the energy is absorbed by solid bodies, which could be objects or people, it is experienced as heat.  Shortwave energy cannot be blown off course by breezes and draughts making it ideally suited to outdoor use.

HWP patio heaters are supplied with adjustable brackets for wall mounting.  Alternatively the heaters can be suspended using wires or chains. 

As HWP patio heaters are 100% effective the instant they are switched on, there is no need to pre-warm an area.  For this reason it is a good idea to use control devices that ensure that an occupied area is not heated.  Typically these would be time delay switches or movement sensors.  See the ‘controls’ tab for full details of the BN Thermic range of patio heater controls

A brief explanation of a halogen lamp

To produce shortwave energy a very high temperature is required.  This is achieved by centering a tungsten filament in a quartz tube.  The tungsten filament operates at a very high temperature and without the presence of a halogen gas; particles from the filament would evaporate from the filament and be deposited on the relatively cooler inner wall of the tube causing blackening and severely reducing lamp life. 

The presence of a halogen gas gives rise to a phenomenon known as the halogen cycle.  A chemical reaction between the halogen gas, tungsten and oxygen creates tungsten oxyhalide molecules which, in a vapour form, migrate from the inner wall of the tube back towards the filament where the high temperature breaks the tungsten oxyhalide molecules apart.  At this stage the tungsten atoms are re-deposited on the filament whist the oxygen and halogen atoms move back towards the wall of the lamp allowing the cycle to repeat.

The halogen cycle allows a lamp to operate at high temperatures without blackening for several thousand hours.

Controls

HWP patio heaters heat people directly without the need to build up and maintain a body of warm air.  For this reason thermostatic control is rarely appropriate.  The following control options will greatly improve economy by ensuring that unoccupied areas are not heated.

TS-6 Push Button Timer (pre-programmed time delay)

TS-6 Push Button Timer

TS-6

The TS-6 is a compact surface-mount, weatherproof device which will energise a heater or heaters for a pre-programmed period between 2 minutes and 2 hours.  Once this period has elapsed the heating will automatically be switched off until the button is pushed again.  The TS-6 is rated IP66 making it safe for outdoor use.

The TS-6 can switch loads up to 3kW directly and is touch activated for easy operation.

 

TS-5 High Capacity Soft Start Timer

TS-5 High Capacity Soft Start Timer

TS-5

The TS-5 timer is designed for direct switching of patio heaters with a combined load of up to 6kW.  The time delay period can be adjusted from 5 minutes to 70 minutes and once this time period has elapsed the heating will be switched off automatically.  The built-in triac provides ‘soft start’ prolonging lamp life and reducing stress on the mains supply.  The TS-5 includes terminals allowing the device to be connected to a remote programmable timer and/or a thermostat.

The TS-5 is rated IP55 making it safe for outdoor installation.

WH-402 Movement Sensor

WH-402 Movement Sensor

WH-402

The WH-402 is a compact, surface mount, weatherproof device which can detect movement up to 12m from its mounting position in a 180° arc.  Both distance and angle of detection can be reduced.  Once movement has been detected the heating will be switched on.  If no further movement is detected within a pre-programmed period (between 5 seconds and 18 minutes)the heating will be automatically switched off.  The WH-402 is rated IP55 making it safe for outdoor use.

The WH-402 can switch loads up to 3kW directly and larger loads via a suitable contactor.

VR-2 Dimmer

VR-2 Dimmer

VR-2

The VR-2 can control the intensity of the output from infrared halogen heaters up to 3kW.  A simple panel front knob provides 30% to 100% adjustment.  It also proves a convenient means of isolating the heater with a definite ‘click’ to off.
