Stylish, efficient, unobtrusive, the Single Infrared Mirror Heater 500W changes the way a room is heated. Blending functionality and style, it doubles up as a modern mirror whilst also providing energy efficient infrared heat. Contemporary and slim line, the mirrored glass heating panel is suitable for wet environments. The panel is made from high quality material and so is built to last. For peace of mind however, it’s backed by a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty. Infrared panels must be used in conjunction with thermostat control units.
Infrared works like the rays of the sun, travelling through the air to heat objects and surrounding surfaces directly rather than heating the air like conventional heaters. Heat is stored in the walls and released slowly as a result of the infrared. What’s great is that this means fast, targeted heating, no condensation and no damp!

How do the heaters work?
Made from Carbon crystal elements with thermal insulation included. They work by converting electricity to emit natural invisible radiant light rays which heat the surrounding mass in the area. They average between 80-100 degrees centigrade and gently warm physical objects like the building itself, furniture and people, unlike conventional heating that only heat the air that can then escape when a door or window is opened. Radiant heat also uniformly heats the area with the temperature difference between the bottom to top of the area having only 1 to 2°C difference as opposed to conventional heating where the hot air rises to the top creating a temperature difference of up to 6°C from bottom to top of the heated area. This is very inefficient meaning the radiators have to work harder than our heaters to maintain the set temperature in the heated area.
Are the heaters safe?
Like the Sun, far infrared heating is 100% natural for our bodies and our well-being. The human body itself accepts and emits heat via infrared waves, therefore it is more natural and beneficial than conventional convection heaters. Far Infrared heating mildly penetrates the air and heats mass, providing a more comfortable feeling of heat, just like the Sun, but without the harmful rays the sun also emits.
How easy is it to install?
The heaters are very easy to install and only require an electric source and a suitable place on the wall or the ceiling to attach to. Compared to other heating technology i.e. gas boiler systems, heat pump, storage heaters, underfloor heating etc. our heaters are easier and quicker to install. Saving you time and money in installation, whilst only creating minor disruption. *We recommend installation by a professional electrician.
Optimum heater placement?
The heaters should not be obstructed by anything and to achieve the best placement, they should be located centrally high up on the wall or better still on the ceiling for maximum performance and efficiency. As they then provide maximum heat coverage by radiating heat in all directions.
Once you've decided on a new bathroom radiator, you'll also need to pick up some radiator valves/electrical element separately to go with it depending on your fuel type. Compatible valves are recommended with the radiator on the product page.
How much heat will I need?
All radiators have a BTU rating, which essentially tells you how much heat they can generate. But how do you know how many BTUs you'll need to effectively heat your room? Easy! Simply click here to use our BTU calculator and find out in seconds.
What is a BTU?
BTU stands for British Thermal Units and represents the level of heat a radiator provides. The required BTU level to heat your room will influence the size of your radiators. Fortunately, we offer numerous options in all shapes, styles and sizes for you to find one that's right for you.
How is it calculated?
This figure is calculated by taking into consideration the dimensions of your room (width, length, height) and the type of windows (such as single or double glazing). You can either use one radiator to reach the total BTU level required, or a number of radiators which reaches the required BTU level when added together - let's get to it!
Why do I need to work out my BTU?
It's important that you get to grips with what BTU you will need in your room as you want to achieve the goldilocks effect – not hot, not cold but just right! If you're overheating your room, you'll probably see your bills increase too. It definitely helps to consider the space that you have before making a final decision.
