Infrared heating manufacturer and expert Tansun has pioneered the manufacture and design of larger higher powered heaters. Its infrared heaters are developed to completely heat an outdoor area and encourage diners to eat outside all year round.

Smaller heaters, although powerful cannot produce enough heat to warm a large outdoor seating area, so will not provide a professional and effective heating solution. Tansun’s range of infrared heaters is designed to enable outdoor areas to become an extension of an indoor area and consequently provides extra revenue for the bar or restaurant.

From experience of many installations like this, Tansun has also found that when an outdoor area is equipped with adequate heat coverage customers prefer to sit outdoors when dining out, yet more than 90% of outside areas are not being heated effectively. This results in the areas not only being unused but also means a wasted investment for bars and restaurants.

An example of this is the Merchant House or the ‘Museum Brasserie’ in Jersey, which installed Tansun’s Sorrento heaters on its terrace to create a better and more profitable outdoor dining experience. Installing a more effective heating solution resulted in the restaurant receiving more bookings and seeing a noticeable increase in its sales.

Alex Dolan, Business Development Manager, Dolan Hotels Jersey commented, “With a large outside space and with British weather being as it is, it was clear to us that adequate heating was crucial to our business model. While they added a certain ambiance with the flames, the gas heaters we were using were ineffective, unreliable, expensive to run and bad for the environment. Having looked across the market at both local and international suppliers, the sleek look, anti-glare properties, range of products from Tansun and the reasonable prices seemed like the obvious option for us.”

He continued, “We saw Tansun at the Restaurant Technology and Restaurant Design Expo in ExCel London, liked their products and chose to install six Sorrento heaters. We are so pleased that we will definitely be choosing them when we eventually refurbish our other restaurants. Our clients regularly comment on how they like the new found warmth of our terrace and this can be seen in the sales. As a matter of fact I posted a picture on Facebook and got a call for a table of eight under the heaters five minutes later!”

Tansun offers a selection of energy-saving switches and heater controls designed to suit almost any situation or need. Tansun's wide range of infrared heaters can easily be adjusted in heat output and energy consumption, maximising user comfort and energy savings. The Tansun six-channel remote allows six individual heaters/zones to be variably controlled. The remote can be configured to the receivers at the touch of a button, making it the most user-friendly controlled and efficient heating system on the market.

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, domestic and industrial infrared heaters in the world, providing maintenance-free, safe and healthy shortwave heaters for many different types of heating applications.
