Combine a gorgeous image with a powerful heater with the 595x1195 Glacial Brook NXT Gen Infrared Heating Panel 700W. Infrared heating has lots of advantages over traditional heating methods, including central heating. This amazing picture is much better to look at than a clunky radiator.
This IR panel measures around 595mm by 1195mm, with a 700W power output. This means it can warm an area that’s around 11-12m2. It is approximately 22mm in depth, meaning it can be fitted rather closely against the wall. It comes with a useful IP54 rating, meaning that it’ll be protected against accidental splashes of water.
The panel’s surface is constructed from FIR Coating, meaning it’s attractive and resilient. It can reach a maximum temperature of roughly 75-95˚C, which is only slightly warmer than a standard radiator. This won’t be an issue, however, as it can be installed much higher up your wall than traditional heaters can be.
One of our favourite aspects of infrared heating is how exceptionally environmentally friendly it is. Because it uses a lot less energy than traditional heating methods, it can lower your heating bills by an impressive 60%! It’s all down to how it heats your room. It uses infrared beams, which bounce around the room, hitting objects and moving on again. It leaves them warmed, which is much more efficient than just heating the air around it, as standard heaters do.
Infrared heating consequently doesn’t generate any convectional currents. This is where the warm air rises, cools, and falls again, requiring more heating. This is rather inefficient, and can be terrible for your overall health. This is because these currents cause cold spots, dust circulation, and mould growth. Infrared heating doesn’t do this at all, which is how it is much better for your health.
Infrared heating is completely safe, even though the idea of infrared radiation sounds scary. It’s the same heat that the sun provides, but without any harmful UV radiation. It’s the same beams that are emitted by your TV remote control!
Our infrared panels come with a brand new, highly advanced premium FIR Coating to help maximise the performance of your heater. It’s heat-resistant – meaning it can withstand temperatures up to 200oC without yellowing over time.
Not only that, but it will also help the carbon crystal heating element inside the panel distribute the IR waves better than ever before, thanks to a higher thermal efficiency, resulting in even more warmth in your home.
To top it all off, the coating is also far more secure than ever before, as it is fire resistant, ensuring your family and your home stay safe and warm.
Our NXT Gen IR Panels change the market once more, thanks to built-in thermostats and remote controls included with every NXT Gen heater. This means all our panels are compliant with the Lot 20 legislation that all space heaters need to comply with to be legally sold in the UK.
The remote control is extremely easy to use, and allows you to control all the different NXTGEN features. The 7-day timer allows you to set on/off times on weekdays and weekends. A quick look through our NXT Gen IR Panel manual reveals the full extent of the heater’s capabilities.
As standard, all remote controls come with a 12-month warranty.
Taking things up a notch, they also come with adaptive start. This switches the panel on early to ensure that your room is up to the temperature you need it at the time you need it. It does this by calculating how long it will take to warm up your room, so you no longer need to guess! For you, this means a whole new world of possibility and control. Automatic temperature control allows you to set a temperature, and your IR heater will then maintain it by switching on and off.
Then, we have open window technology. When the panel detects a sudden drop in temperature as a result of an open window, it will switch off in order to save energy.
These heaters are really easy to fit. There’s no problematic electrical or plumbing work, so you don’t have to fret about hiring anyone to help. These heaters are completely plug-and-play compatible, with a standard UK mains 3-pin plug and a two metre long power cable. To fit them on the wall, it’s a simple one-person job. Using the template that we provide in the box, drill two holes in the wall and put the screws in.
Take a look at our first suggestion - the particularly stunning 595x1195 Mountain Tops NXT Gen Infrared Heating Panel 700W. It portrays an array of snow-covered mountains, with a luscious green forest to the foreground, and a vibrantly blue sky behind them.
The second recommendation goes to the fantastic 595x1195 Daylight Reflections NXT Gen Infrared Heating Panel 700W. It shows a great hill, with a cloudy sky above, and a lake to the foreground. This lake is reflecting everything above it, for an almost symmetrical image.
All of our different image panels come with an incredible 2-year warranty, so your purchase will be completely covered. You can upgrade this to 5 years at no extra cost.
There’s also an impressive 14-day home trial period, in case you feel the need to return or exchange it. This is susceptible to a small 15% restocking fee, however, as the panel would need to be printed on.
All panels come with free delivery within 2-3 days, and next day delivery is available for £5.99.
You can return your panel if you are not happy with it within 14 days of receiving it.
To install your panel or bar heater, drill 4 holes into your wall as per the mounting template provided with your heater.
For panels, insert the wall plugs, followed by the screws, and use the cross-hair bolt insertion hole brackets on the back of the panel to mount it in place.
For bar heaters, use the provided screws to mount the brackets onto your wall, and then onto the back of the heater. Use the provided wing nuts to secure the wall brackets and heater brackets together at an angle best suited for your area.
Plug the heater into your mains, or get a qualified electrician to hardwire it for you.
Infrared heaters use up to 60% less energy than electric convection heaters, because they warm up objects rather than the air.
As they have no moving parts, they require zero maintenance.
At just 22mm thick, and best installed at head height, they can save massive amounts of space, allowing you to use your entire floor space.
Our infrared panels are far better looking than conventional radiators, giving your home a more modern look.
Once they have reached the end of their huge 100,000 hour lifespan, they almost fully recyclable, further helping the environment even after they’re no longer fit for use.
