In recent years, Tansun has recognised the continued rise in the popularity of stylish outdoor eating areas, with more and more mid to high-end restaurants looking to benefit from the demand for outdoor elegance and luxury.

For the first two weeks of July this year, The Championships Wimbledon, the oldest tennis tournament in the world, will be back on the UK’s TV screens and tennis fans will be looking for places to watch the matches. With millions of people across the country tuning in over the fortnight, many restaurants and bars will be looking for a reliable heating solution to enhance their outdoor areas.

Tansun’s infrared heaters provide optimum comfort and warmth all year round and are ideal even in the summer months when evenings become chilly. Infrared heating is an ideal solution for such scenarios as for customers one of the big attractions during sporting seasons is being able to sit outside under a heater that provides a natural heat similar to that of the sun.

For restaurants with outdoor seating areas and rooftop terraces that are planning to show the tennis matches, creating an exclusive outdoor dining experience that is filled with character is as important as having the right menu. One of the attractions of the Tansun infrared heaters is that they come with a range of options that enable them to blend in effortlessly, providing optimum heating without intruding on the character and feel of the space.

As well as being naturally compact and low glare, all units are also available in all RAL colours, meaning they will always blend in with their surroundings. Given the flexible mounting options, it is easy to discreetly fit Tansun heaters even in the trickiest of places.

Tansun infrared heaters also allow restaurants and bars to maximise their seating capacity, which is especially important during high profile events. Whilst gas burners are a popular alternative to infrared heaters, one of the biggest disadvantages is the amount of floor space they require. Opting for infrared heaters allows you to make the most of floor space and with the ability to hang and mount the heaters they are suitable for all premises.

When it comes to heating outdoor seating areas, there are some key factors to consider. While conventional electric radiators remain by far the most popular form of heating for internal areas, they are less efficient outdoors. Radiators need to be pre-heated which can dramatically increase energy consumption and as the heat is carried by convection, they are particularly vulnerable to heat loss resulting from free movement of air which also reduces their efficiency. Whilst gas burners are much better suited to the outdoor environment, they can also be prone to the same problem of heat loss.

Radiant infrared heaters require no pre-heating and experience minimum heat loss. As a result, radiant infrared heaters can offer an exceptional 96% efficiency compared to other heating methods.

All of Tansun’s products are made in the UK and are designed using premium components. The company has been established for 35 years and pioneered the concept of infrared electric heaters alongside Philips technology. Tansun has the largest range of commercial, industrial and domestic infrared heaters in the world, providing maintenance-free, safe and healthy shortwave heaters for many different types of heating applications.

Tansun heaters are available with a full range of energy-saving controllers which further enhance the efficiency of the products.
