Results to be Achieved
According to the result to be achieved, the infrared panels can be divided into two major categories. They can be used either for increasing the temperature in the room to be heated or for ensuring local thermal sensation. If the aim is to increase room temperature in the case of an independent or auxiliary heating, the infrared panels must be installed on the ceiling, and it is advisable to operate them using the temperature controller.people sitting or standing there can be exposed to their direct radiation. Operation: by direct connection, without temperature control. Examples include
- heating of church pews, where the infrared panels must be arranged in the pews in such a manner that they can provide heat for people sitting there directly. They are recommended to install under the pews to radiate heat on the legs, or on the backrest of the pew before to radiate to the people sitting on the seats.
- workplaces separated from halls, where the working area should be separated from the cold area. The area must be demarcated using a material which does not allow infrared radiation to go through. /E.g. foil, plasterboard, OSB boards etc./. Place as many infrared panels on the separated working area that the 45°spread angle of the panels can adjoin. It should be ensured that the infrared panels can be as close to the workers as possible /e.g. the panels can be suspended to a height of 2.5 to 3 m/.
- in office rooms with insufficient heating, the panels can be installed on the desks so that they can warm the people’s legs.
