Low-cost patio heater
Instant heat with two heat settings – 1500W / 3000W. – the elements are replaceable & designed to last 10,000 hours. Far Infrared Electric heaters offer more focused heat, heating people rather than the air and emit zero CO2 exhaust gases unlike gas patio heaters. Far Infrared carbon fibre heating is used worldwide in hospitals for many problems as it is proven to be the most natural, versatile, and healthy form of heat known to man. FIR heat helps maintain body vitality and increases metabolic function without side effects
PIR Infrared Sensor
The PIR economy feature enables the Hercules patio heater to automatically switch on and off depending on activity near the unit. When enabled, the PIR sensor constantly monitors peoples’ movements up to a distance of 4 meters and if after 1 or 4 minutes it does not detect movement it will switch off. Thereafter, if the PIR sensor does detect movement it will automatically switch on at the original settings. This economy function optimises energy usage and minimises CO2 emissions even further than the 80% already indicated, making Hercules the most efficient and eco-friendly heater in the world.
Touch control panel
The Hercules features a touch control panel that allows a user to adjust the heating, switch on/off the economy setting and lock the unit. The touch panel has been designed for use in all weather types.
The fully functional remote allows the patio heater to be controlled from a distance without the need to disturb customers. Not only can the 3 heat settings be selected (100%, 50% or OFF) but the infrared sensor can be controlled (1min, 4mins or OFF) for further savings when nobody is present. Furthermore the unit can also be locked remotely to prevent tampering from children or customers.
Safety Tilt Switch
A slim ergonomic design combined with a 15kg heavyweight base ensures the heater will not blow over unlike many other patio gas heaters. The unit also features a safety cut-off switch if the unit is accidentally knocked over. There are no naked flames to ignite alcohol nor can cigarettes be lit with the units making public liability insurance costs far cheaper.
When not in use the 5m cable can be stored in the lockable rear compartment along with the magnetic remote control. The heater has a grip handle and base has an integrated roller allowing for the unit to be easily transported whether for heating area flexibility or for storage.
