Infrared heating manufacturer and expert Tansun is helping businesses in the hospitality sector get back on their feet following a disruptive few months by supporting them in transforming their outdoor spaces.

The company’s infrared heaters are developed to completely heat an outdoor area and encourage diners to eat outside whatever the weather, and with visitor numbers likely to soar as lockdown restrictions ease, venues need to ensure they are ready and compliant for the months of trade ahead.

Smaller heaters, although powerful, are not able to produce enough heat to warm a large outdoor seating area, and with social distancing now a priority, they will not be able to provide a professional and effective heating solution. Tansun’s range of infrared heaters is designed to enable outdoor areas to become an extension of an indoor area and also provides extra revenue for the bar or restaurant, something that is very important in the current climate.

When an outdoor area is equipped with adequate heat coverage, Tansun has found that customers prefer to sit outdoors when dining out, yet more than 90% of outside areas are not heated effectively. This results in the spaces not only being unused but also means a wasted investment for bars and restaurants, something they can no longer afford to ignore.

June 1st saw the introduction of guidance for businesses with outdoor seating, allowing gradual reopening of venues across the UK. A welcome relief for the hospitality industry, outdoor seating will now be essential to keep businesses going, and with experts saying that being outdoors is less problematic in terms of the pandemic, venues need to review their current set ups sooner rather than later.

As stated by the Environment Secretary George Eustice, the hospitality industry will face many challenges as it begins to reopen, and will very much rely on its outdoor spaces to be able to trade safely. With this in mind, installing the correct heating will mean that people will be happy to stay outdoors for longer periods and into the evenings as a drop in temperature won’t be an issue.

Tansun offers a selection of energy-saving switches and heater controls designed to suit almost any situation or need. Tansun’s wide range of infrared heaters can easily be adjusted in heat output and energy consumption, maximising user comfort and energy savings. The Tansun six-channel remote allows six individual heaters/zones to be variably controlled. The remote can be configured to the receivers at the touch of a button, making it the most user-friendly controlled and efficient heating system on the market.

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, domestic and industrial infrared heaters in the world, providing maintenance-free, safe and healthy shortwave heaters for many different types of heating applications.
