Infrared heating expert Tansun has recently seen the prestigious Wolverhampton Judo Club update its ineffective heating system with a number of Tansun’s infrared heaters as part of an upgrade of its premises.

Wolverhampton Judo Club was formed in 1966 and is ranked as one of the UK’s premier judo clubs. Over the years the club has celebrated many successes and is particularly proud of the many international and national players who have achieved medals status from both Olympic and World Championships.

The club required a heating solution that provided instant heat which was both effective and efficient. To match the needs of the busy facility, Tansun’s Apollo 2kW and 15kW, Eclipse 1.5kW and Sorrento Ceramic infrared heaters in black were chosen for the installation.

Tansun’s infrared heaters were installed around the site including the judo mat and parent seating areas, the changing rooms and the club toilets. The instant heat, powerful heat output and controllability of each of the infrared heaters allows them to be turned up and down when required, including only heating half of the judo floor when necessary, and will generate energy savings in the future.    

Kevin O’Reilly, Senior Coach at Wolverhampton Judo Club commented, “We decided we needed a more effective heating system and decided to choose Tansun after finding them online and seeing that they were quite local to us. We have 12 heaters installed around the building in the toilets, changing rooms, the judo mat and seating area and we are very pleased with the results.”

He continued, “The new heaters are a massive improvement on the inefficient system we had in place. We had four heaters over the mat area that didn’t work very well and fan heaters in the toilets which produced a lot of condensation, so in the month we have had the Tansun heaters we have seen a very noticeable difference. We love the controllability and being able to turn the heaters down easily when it gets too hot, and we are getting lots of comments about the warmth, so we will certainly be recommending Tansun heaters to others.”

Tansun’s Apollo A1A infrared heater is the smallest of the Apollo range and was installed in the club’s judo area. The Apollo range was designed to solve heating issues in large and problem areas such as gymnasiums, warehouses, aircraft hangars and places of worship, and with more than 30 models to choose from, this established product has been proven by Tansun for 30 years or more. The heaters come with high power options, special long-lasting aluminium reflectors, a focused energy beam and a high intensity heat, which due to the highly engineered construction and design can’t be rivalled by other forms of heating for large open spaces.

Apollo heaters are available in 1kW to 18kW versions to heat areas up to 79sq.m, and they can be wall mounted or hung from the ceiling. Tansun infrared heaters also benefit from a two-year warranty.

The Eclipse zero light ceramic infrared heater was used in the club’s changing rooms as they are specially designed to not give off any glare and are fitted with far-infrared technology, which is considered one of the most energy-efficient forms of infrared heating available. The Eclipse range uses advanced ceramic heating technology which gives the heaters 35% more energy efficiency than lower-spec near-infrared products.

The Sorrento Ceramic infrared heater’s versatility makes it the perfect choice for heating areas such as the club’s toilets as it features a superior long-lasting infrared lamp and a polished parabolic reflector that enhances the heat distribution.

Tansun infrared heaters offer maximum performance and very low running costs. They are designed with a ‘fit and forget’ reputation, are reliable, durable and virtually maintenance-free. Features include extruded aluminium heat sinks to keep heaters cool for better reliability. The shortwave technology is also noiseless, doesn’t contribute to air pollution and is compatible with energy saving controllers.

All of Tansun’s products are made in the UK and are designed using premium components. The company has been established for 35 years and pioneered the concept of infrared electric heaters alongside Philips technology. Tansun has the largest range of commercial, industrial and domestic infrared heaters in the world, providing maintenance-free, safe and healthy shortwave heaters for many different types of heating applications.      

Tansun heaters are available with a full range of energy-saving controllers which further enhance the efficiency of the products.
