Infrared Heating Panels



Infrared Heating Panels

The unique feature behind Flexel’s  far infrared heating system

We have been manufacturing far infrared heaters, for both commercial and domestic applications, in our UK factory since 1978. The core of our heating technology is in the carbon loaded resins used in the manufacture of our heating element. Continuous development and refinement over the years has resulted in a thin-film heating element with proven longevity. Many of our original units are still in service today. Our panels contain no moving parts , the only mechanical device is a high limit thermal cut-out. Our far infrared heating panels have a service life in the decades.

How does Infrared Work?

The best known form of far infrared heating is the Sun. Considering  that the Sun is Earth's only source of heat, and is 93  Million miles away, it warms the Earth from this  fantastic distance using only radiant energy This radiant energy can be divided into different wave lengths representing both visible and invisible light, ranging from Ultraviolet light (UV) though the visible light spectrum to the infrared  (IR) portion. UV light has a high frequency and thus a short wave length. Visible light has a lower frequency and longer wavelength and contains less energy. The infrared portion of the spectrum has the lowest frequency, longest wavelength and lowest energy level. This section can be further divided into Near, Mid and Far infrared each with increasing wavelengths. It is in the Far wavelength section of the spectrum that has the ability to travel through the air unaffected, heating the objects in the room.This most natural form of heat transfer provides the healthiest and most efficient way to heat people , whether from  the Sun, a burning log fire or energy efficient Far infrared heating panel.

Efficient and Clean

Traditional central heating systems work by air passing over warm water radiators. This creates convective warm air currents, as warm air rises and cold air falls due to differences in their density. This creates a temperature differential in the room with the ceiling space being heated first. This leads to a “hothead / cold feet syndrome and a stuffy environment.
