We recommend the Advantage IRP4 Heater for Industrial and Workshop space heating applications. This 3200W ceiling-mounted unit is designed for spaces providing adequate clearance from the ground (98 – 118″) and from the ceiling above (minimum 5″) and from the nearest wall (minimum 60″) and is easier to install and maintain than hot air blowers or gas-burning “space ray” type heating systems and is more comfortable than other forms of electric heating often used in these environments. There are additional benefits:
- As there are no exhaust emissions there is no requirement for planning;
- They operate silently and without fumes – consequently raising no health and safety issues;
- Installation is much cheaper than oil or gas alternatives – all you require is electric cable;
- No maintenance. You do not have to maintain an infrared heater once installed;
- You can “focus” the heat exactly to where you want it – because there is no convection of heat, none is wasted blowing into areas it is not wanted;
- Far Infrared has been shown to have positive effects on metabolism, being the waveband at which water (80% constituent of skin) most effectively absorbs heat.
Space heating can be used anywhere there is a requirement to heat a large volume and where the heaters themselves can be placed well out of reach. So workplaces like workshops, industrial or commercial units, warehouses etc make ideal locations for heaters of this sort.
NOTE: Emitters give off a slight orange glow
This is a fantastic heater for our pub and has no problem heating the area. It meets the design we were looking for incredibly well.
Office Manager, Rotorua NZ –
We are delighted with the way that the look of the heaters fits in with the polished floors and open industrial image we wanted to create.
The heaters provide a lovely cosy warmth without any draught which you can get with air conditioning and the use of the heaters, with the thermostats and timers, means we are driving the best efficiencies from them.

You wouldn’t believe the difference it’s made…as certainly makes it comfortable for the team to work whilst based in that area!

Commercial Client (name withheld) –
Although [Site1] has a bigger floor area than [Site2] it is currently costing less in electricity despite longer operating hours and higher turnover and my monthly direct debit has recently been reduced since our original estimate. Part of this saving will be due to the lower heating costs.
Mainly I am pleased to report that ambient temperature has never been a concern at any point since the thermostats were programmed. There is really no ‘management’ for me or my staff to do. The system works for itself and we do not have to do anything. Suffice to say that we have had no input into the system since it was set up and the store has been comfortably heated throughout that time.
STEPHEN, THE BYRE THEATRE, ST ANDREWS, FIFE, SCOTLAND –
We are renovating a 16th Century building to be used as an extended Box-Office in South Street St Andrews. Due to the lack of space or existing heating we were looking for a space saving & energy efficient solution. After a long and fruitless search all other solutions appeared to be either too large or inefficient. When we saw Herschel on line we knew we had found the solution. Your advice was timely and efficient and you were a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. The units arrived well within time and were stunning. The online pictures are good but the real thing is so much better. Staff and Clients talk about these units and seem surprised that they are heaters as the elegance and size is deceptive. Recommending these units is a given for the theatre, they make up-holding the 5 Star status that bit easier as well as holding to budgets a breeze.
