The visual appeal and radiant warmth of these 40,000 and 50,000 BTU/hr heaters are available in a number of different models. The propane fired model A270 is fully transportable.

Radiant heaters use the same means of heating as the sun: heating people and objects directly, not the air. A radiant heater may make a person up to 10 degrees warmer. The radiant emitter sends out heat rays that do not heat the air directly, but instead warm an object, such as a person or a table. The rays are absorbed by that object, increasing its temperature.
The heater design produces a radiant heat pattern that is efficient whether close or at some distance from the heat source. Because a person located twice as far from the radiant emitter would normally receive only 25% of the radiant heat intensity, our design is such that the person located closer to the heat emitter receives only 25% of the more intense heat rays while the person twice as far away receives 100% of the less intense heat rays. Thus, both people are heated equally. Our heater design does not overheat the person with excess infrared heat, but spreads the even infrared heat over as wide an area as possible to maintain the body warmth of several people in any given space.
