A catalytic heater offers a well-balanced ratio between radiation and convection heat. The hot surface works on a much lower temperature so that the radiation is softer.
A catalytic heater burns gas at a lower temperature because of the catalytic panel made of aluminium fibres which gives the heater its name. The catalytic panel is coated with catalysers and allows the gas/oxygen mix to burn without emitting any flames.
The benefit of the Catalytic Heater is a very high wind resistance, as there is no flame that can be blown out.
As catalytic heaters have no flame and they don’t emit a strong direct heat, there is an extremely limited risk that an object covering the heater or positioned very close to the heater will get damaged or catch fire.
Catalytic heaters also have a low CO2 emission. These various properties make the heaters very user-friendly as the power can be easily adjusted and the product operates silently.
Set the Fire to the third bar! Whereas Infrared heaters predominantly use radiation, very hot heating panels generate very powerful heat radiation, they're easily recognisable if switched on, as the heat is visible to the human eye from the fine-pored ceramic bars that turn to an intense red colour when glowing.
That heat is generated by a gas burner that burns the Calor gas/oxygen mix inside the ceramic plates at a temperature of around 900°C. The benefit of this heat is perceived stronger and more direct, particularly when you are positioned in front of the heater. Especially when feeling cold, people get a fast, pleasant heat response from an infrared heater.
