In the heart of the Jersey capital of St Helier, next to the Jersey Museum, you’ll find one of the most popular restaurants in the historic Weighbridge area. The restaurant has an outdoor dining area which has been fitted with Tansun infrared heaters to encourage diners to eat outside all year round.

In order to create a better outdoor dining experience, Merchant House or the ‘Museum Brasserie’ has installed Sorrento heaters on its terrace creating a cosy retreat with vibrant food in a lively atmosphere.

Making the terrace warm and inviting has been a priority for the restaurant, and Tansun’s Sorrento Double infrared heaters, with a range of up to 36 square metres, are the ideal product for ensuring their guests are always comfortable. The infrared heaters are wall-mounted at the brasserie, but can also be hung and are suitable for awnings.

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!”

The Sorrento infrared heater’s versatility makes it the perfect choice for heating large areas as it features a superior long-lasting infrared lamp and a polished parabolic reflector that enhances the heat distribution. The Sorrento Double is durable in all weather conditions, making it the ideal heating solution for restaurants, bars and other establishments looking to maximise the potential of their outdoor areas all year round.

Tansun offers a selection of 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 heating system on the market.

Tansun’s products are made in the UK and 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 heating appliances to customers up and down the country.
