After three years of product development, Thermofilm is set to launch HEATSTRIP® Elegance, the world’s first true outdoor-rated strip heater that is off-white rather than the traditional black. HEATSTRIP® Elegance radiant heaters blend seamlessly with most white ceilings in any al fresco, verandah and patio areas.
Thermofilm, a world leader in electric heaters, worked with coating technology experts to develop a unique composition that has driven a new generation of outdoor heater.
The HEATSTRIP® ultimate design has extended to its effectiveness with a new heating element technology that produces a more even temperature distribution and allows the energy efficient heater to operate at higher temperatures to provide greater comfort.
Thermofilm’s new models are approximately 12 percent shorter than the traditional black HEATSTRIP® Classic heaters and therefore take up less space. This shorter, more compact range has less surface area than others on the market and can help transform an al fresco area into a stylish, vibrant and sophisticated space with more effective heating comfort.
NEW COATING TECHNOLOGY
Greg Trezise, Thermofilm’s National Sales Manager, said it has taken years to get the right formula for the new coating of the HEATSTRIP® Elegance heaters, which have to withstand constantly high-surface temperatures.
“There is no other ‘off-white’ outdoor heater in the world that does not discolour through the constant heat it produces. By virtue of the material composition, white is the hardest colour to operate at a high temperature and ensure it doesn’t lose its colour.”
Thermofilm’s research and development has extended to making the new ‘off-white’ coating flexible so that it doesn’t crack. Other strip heaters on the market use traditional paint coating technology, which cracks at normal operating temperatures.
Other highlights of the HEATSTRIP® Elegance’s enhancements are equally innovative and market-leading. They include:
- Several mounting options | The Elegance series can be tailored to any space. The new bracket will allow both ceiling and wall mounting at various angles as well as suspension by chains, wires and metal rods for use with higher ceilings. All accessories and brackets are colour coordinated with the Elegance range.
- IP55 Rated | All three new Elegance models are IP55 rated, meaning they are protected from water ingress from all directions. The 1800W and 2400W models come with convenient DIY installation while the 3600W model needs to be hard wired.
Designed, engineered and assembled in Australia, the HEATSTRIP® Elegance range is built from corrosion-resistant alloy and is suitable for use in most applications, including harsh environments such as coastal areas, outdoor kitchens and around saltwater pools.
