Plaque heater

Innovative, economic, fast and quiet
The core of the plaque [high-intensity / luminous] infrared tube heater is the unique ceramic burner tile invented by our founder, Günther Schwank. The infrared heater’s energy is generated from a gas-air-mixture through clean combustion at 3,600 openings per tile. The ceramic heating tile’s surface will thereby be heated up to 950°C, glowing “brightly” and releasing infrared radiation. Reflectors deflect and direct the infrared radiation downwards, heating the occupied level up to the desired comfort temperature. Hellstrahler_Vorteil_05
Schwank plaque [luminous] tube heaters are used for heating factories, warehouses, distribution centres, workshops, service garages, aviation hangars, sports facilities and churches. Furthermore, special infrared models are available for a range of heating applications from outdoor patios to football stadiums.
Schwank has developed plaque [luminous] heaters in 3 energy-efficiency classes:

  • supraSchwank, our Premium plaque tube heater
