The black glass far infrared panel features a smart, modern design with a high gloss, polished look. The heater has a narrow frame and can be installed vertically or horizontally, allowing it to fit into places where space is at a premium. The panel is built with 6mm of toughened glass with an aluminium back and so is built to last. For peace of mind however, it’s backed by a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty. Far 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 Far Infrared. What’s great is that this means fast, targeted heating, no condensation and no damp!

Once you’ve decided on a new Far Infrared Heating Panel, you’ll also need to pick up a programmable thermostat separately to go with it. Compatible thermostats will be listed alongside the heating panels on the product page or you can browse our full range of thermostats. Additionally, appropriate thermostats will be shown in the recommended accessories section. We recommend using Salus Programmable Thermostats or the Salus Smart Home Control System. The Salus products are rated 16amps and can have multiple panels (up to 16amp) connected to one thermostat.
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.
