Infrared Outdoor Heater Alfresco
Heating outdoor and cold areas has just become much simpler and effective as a result of a major breakthrough in heater technology, using the Infrared Outdoor Heater Alfresco.
Infrared Outdoor Heater Alfresco do not waste energy warming the air ; instead they heat only solid objects like people. The heat produced feels remarkably like sunlight and is extremely pleasant.
Air is constantly moving, making conventional patio heaters, also known as Mushroom heaters as well as electrical halogen heaters impractical. Hot air rises so that as soon as these heater types warm the air, it simply rises, to be replaced by colder air which is heavier. The IR heater alfresco does not waste energy warming the air but rather, allow specific spaces within an outdoor area to be targetted, warming only the people and objects in those spaces.
Whether for work or recreation, the wall mounted heaters turn cold indoor and outdoor areas into comfortable inviting spaces.
These heaters produces safe infrared radiant energy that is only absorbed by solid objects and is not wasted heating the air. Electric Infrared Heat is remarkably efficient and cost effective. Over 90% of the input energy is converted directly to radiant heat. IR heater Alfresco can be wall mounted so they focus that energy on customers rather than the open air, so that it is effective at large distances.
Medium wavelength infra-red is less harsh than typical short-wave heaters and is ideal for situations where the heat source is close to people. Medium wave elements (burning at around 900°C) take a few minutes to reach peak heat and are more suited to heating specific targeted areas.
The medium wave heating elements emit a safe, clean wavelength of light that is only absorbed by solid objects, transferring heat directly to a person, table or floor rather than heating the air.
In addition, the IR heater alfresco can be fitted with motion sensors without negatively impacting on element lifespan. This ensures the heaters only operate when customers are present, providing significant savings.
The IR heater alfresco is constructed from Marine Grade stainless steel and special composite alloy, providing outstanding resistance against corrosion – an important feature for humid climates or coastal areas.
With a compact and elegant design, they can fit any decor, and with easy installation and minimum clearance, can be mounted at lower heights, under canvas or timber eaves.The casing itself does not get very hot so the heater may be recessed into ceilings safely.
The IR heater alfresco is available in single or double element configurations and a variety of sizes, the heaters are the ulitmate heating solution for any indoor and outdoor area.

Benefits of our outdoor heating solutions
Low running costs
Over 90% of the energy is converted directly to radiant heat which is only absorbed by solid objects and is not wasted on heating thin air. The heat is also unaffected by the level of wind. All our heaters produce safe infrared radiant energy that is remarkably efficient and cost effective to run. Element lifespan is unaffected by the use of motion sensors, meaning that the heaters can be designed to operate only when customers are present, resulting in huge savings.
Increase your profits
The Mural Infrared Outdoor Heaters increase profits through more frequent use of your outdoor dining and drinking areas later into the evening and all year round. Keep your outdoor customers cosy and warm, or risk losing them to a more comfortable venue.
All Heaters are constructed from Marine Grade stainless steel and special composite alloy, providing outstanding resistance against corrosion – an important feature for humid climates or coastal areas.
The Quartz Infrared Heaters have no moving parts, no serviceable parts and best of all no more annoying Gas bottles to refill! The Quartz elements have on average 6000 hour lifespan.
The Mural Heater incorporates a specially designed electric quartz heating element that produces safe infrared energy. In addition, Infrared heaters emit no harmful ultraviolet rays or emissions, making them the perfect choice for heating large outdoor areas in bars, cafes, hotels and restaurants where safety of patrons and general public is a priority.
There is a distinct possibility that gas heaters will be banned due to the high level of CO2 emitted. Electric heaters emit no harmful carbon emissions thus offering a safe and green alternative.
Since there are no open flames or carbon monoxide emissions mounting clearances are minimal. In fact, the infrared can be recessed into a ceiling, or even mounted close to sail cloth and awnings. This also means that your valuable patio space is not taken up with cumbersome heaters.
Three times greater
Alpina heaters are much larger than most rival products, measuring up to 156cm in length. One alfresco heater will do the job of three regular heaters.
94% of the energy is converted to heat. The use of 98% pure aluminium reflectors, polished to a mirror finish is a crucial element of the design of our heaters, amplifying the energy emitted significantly while keeping running costs low.
Our heaters turn cold indoor and outdoor spaces into comfortable inviting spaces, all year round.
Our heaters produce safe infra red radiant heat that is only absorbed by solid objects and is not wasted heating the air.
