Heating the working zone in workshop


It is necessary to create a zonal heating of workplaces in the workshop. The temperature in the working area should be at least +15°C. Heaters must be powered by electricity and only during working hours.


Only infrared heaters can emit a directional heating, so heat guns or convectors are not suitable. Among infrared heaters there are two types of heaters that can provide fast heating with a surface temperature above 400°C. They are medium or short-wave heaters. It is not recommended to use shortwave heaters while people are present in premise for a long time. Thus we decided to implement medium-wave heaters of BILUX “Y” series for the heating of the working area.


The temperature in the work area rises from +2 to +15°C in 40 minutes, this is enough for the employees to work comfortably.

We recommend ordering the implementation of Bilux from our specialists

We have been implementing Bilux for 12 years, we have made a lot of mistakes and know what to do in difficult cases. If an inexperienced installer is involved in the installation, we cannot guarantee that the heater will operate at maximum efficiency.
During installation, the installers take into account the height of the ceilings, wall thickness and location of the windows, and ensure fire and electrical safety.

Do not install heaters yourself

Example. The workshop employees bought three of the most powerful ceiling heaters and installed them themselves at a height of 3 meters at the edges and in the middle of the room. It was still cold in the workshop.
When a specialist is involved in the implementation, he makes a heat calculation and selects the power and number of heaters, chooses the right places for installation.
In the workshop, it was necessary to hang five low-power heaters around the perimeter.
The specialist checks the heat losses and, if necessary, advises thermal insulation. In the workshop, it was necessary to insulate the floor.
The specialist takes into account the height of the ceilings and the proportions of the room. In the workshop, it was necessary to hang the heaters half a meter lower.
