Heating Vehicles with Clayton Herschel

Low Carbon Transport from Clayton Herschel

supporting global environmental targets

Clayton Vehicle Systems and Herschel Infrared have joined forces to introduce innovative vehicle heating technology from Clayton Herschel.

Our world-leading vehicle infrared heat systems are changing the way we heat buses, coaches, trains and marine vehicles.

Heating Buses with Clayton Herschel Infrared

Engineering & innovation at its very best

Clayton’s innovative engineering skills are evidenced in the design of our sleek and lightweight infrared heating solution.

A space-saving heating solution that can be easily mounted and hidden within the inner roof panel of any vehicle.





One tenth of the weight of a typical convection heater.

97% lighter than an electric heat pump systems.

Weight and space savings = increased occupancy + fuel savings = higher revenue.

Benefits offered over conventional heat systems

Energy saving: heats passengers first, and the fabric of the vehicle, rather than heating the air like standard methods used in petrol or diesel vehicles, saving up to 60% on energy consumption.

Greater warmth and comfort for passengers: a more consistent temperature significantly reduces cold spots and variations in temperature are minimised.

Carbon-free: no fuel is burnt during the heat process, one of the few systems available delivering 0% carbon emissions.
Easy installation: sleek & lightweight solution can be easily mounted and hidden within the inner roof panel of any vehicle.

Reduction in condensation: infrared heat warms objects directly, keeping them at a higher temperature than the air and deterring the build up of moisture.  A significant benefit to a common problem on buses and other vehicles.
