For a stunningly attractive infrared panel heater, the 595x995 Thunder Mountain NXT Gen Infrared Heating Panel 580W is absolutely perfect. It has loads of different advantages over traditional heating methods, such as central heating. They’re smart, efficient, and can save you lots of money.
This image panel measures approximately 595mm by 995mm, and with its power output of 580W, can heat an area that’s approximately 9-10m2. It measures just 22mm in depth, meaning it can fit very flush against your wall. It comes with an IP54 rating, which means it’s protected against splashes of water.
The panel is constructed from top-quality FIR Coating materials, which give it a stylish appearance. The surface can reach a temperature of approximately 75-95˚C, which is slightly warmer than a traditional radiator. It’ll be a lot trickier to burn yourself, however, as it’ll be installed higher up the wall than a normal radiator.
Infrared heating is a revolutionary new way of heating your indoor space. It is much more efficient, more eco-friendly, and, truthfully, looks a lot better than traditional heating methods. It heats your room in a completely different way to a conventional radiator. Rather than heating the air around it, it heats the objects around the room, which requires less energy. It can actually save around 60% on your heating bills!
It fires infrared beams around the room, which bounce off the objects, leaving them warmed. By doing this, you can avoid convectional currents. When a traditional heater warms the air, it rises to the ceiling, cools, and falls again, requiring reheating. This is much less efficient, and can have a negative effect on your health. That’s because it encourages dust circulation, mould growth, and cold spots. Because an infrared heater does not do this, it can actually be seen as beneficial for your health.
Infrared heating is also completely safe, even though it sounds scary. It’s just the same technology that TV remote controls use! It provides the same kind of heat that the sun does, but without any nasty UV radiation.
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.
With one of our NXT Gen IR panels, you will get a futuristic heating solution. They come with a built-in thermostat and remote control, which means they follow the Lot 20 legislature. This means you can have control over so many different aspects of your heating straight away.
You can make use of the automatic temperature control, which automatically switches the panel on and off in order to regulate your desired temperature. There’s also a 7-day timer that allows you to set different on and off times for weekdays and weekends. If you have a look at our NXT Gen IR Panel manual, you can see the full details of the wonderful functionality.
The remote control is covered by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Where the panel truly shines, however, is through the fantastic adaptive start and open window detection features. With adaptive start, your panel will calculate what time it needs to come in order to get your room to the desired temperature at the desired time. The 7-day timer means you can set different on/off times for weekdays and weekends.
The NXT Gen panel really comes into its own with the adaptive start and open window detection. With adaptive start, the panel will work out how far in advance it’ll need to switch on in order to reach the desired temperature at the desired time, eliminating any guesswork on your behalf. The open window detection saves valuable energy, as if there’s a sudden temperature drop, it switches off.
These panels are very simple to install, so you won’t have to worry about summoning any professional help. Say goodbye to the plumbers, electricians, and carpenters of the world, as they’re simply not needed. This is a complete and utter one-person job, so you won’t even need to bother yourself with any extra help. Simply use the provided stencil to show you where to drill the holes in the wall, then slip the screws in. After that, hang the panel onto the screws, using the two brackets on the rear.
The panel is completely plug-and-play compatible, thanks to the 2m power cable and UK mains 3-pin plug. It can also be suspended from the ceiling, or made to be portable, using the infrared heater stand.
Measuring just 22mm in depth, your infrared panel heater will be able to fit very flush against your wall. They can be installed much higher up on the wall than a traditional radiator can, as you don’t have to worry about the heat disappearing up to the ceiling. This means it can be a part of your home, rather than an ugly afterthought.
The Thunder Mountain is a brilliant image, with a lake surrounded by mountains on two sides. In the middle of the lake is a rocky formation with a couple of trees on it. The sky is an orangey colour, thanks to the sharp bolt of lightning streaking through the centre. It’s a brilliant way to disguise your heating.
A suggestion is for the slightly warmer looking 595x1195 Mountain Landscape NXT Gen Infrared Heating Panel 580W. It has an interesting blend of green, blue, brown and white, with a mountain in the centre. There’s a busy sky above, with the stormy clouds from the right advancing towards the last remnants of blue on the left.
