Imagine a heater that doubles as an incredibly exciting picture for your wall, and the stunning Thunderstorm Printed Infrared Heating Panel from Mirrorstone will spring immediately to mind!
The image that’s printed directly onto our 995 x 1195mm Infrared Heating Panel depicts a violent electrical storm occurring over the Big Apple and, despite its surface reaching a temperature of 95°C the FIR coated surface will never burn you if you accidentally touch it.
In fact, this simple-to-install Infrared radiant electric heater is exceptionally safe generally, utilising the same type of electromagnetic waves the sun uses to heat the earth.
Not only that, the dry, constant form of heat it generates is actually beneficial health-wise as it dispels dampness from the air and completely eradicates any possibility of mould-formation from your room.
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.
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.
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.
Our IR Panel Heaters work in a totally different way to other types of electric heater, but once you’ve embraced the technology, you’ll become aware of its many benefits.
IR waves heat the solid objects in a room, creating a thermal mass effect that keeps the room warmer for longer. It’s quite unlike the constantly fluctuating temperatures that convector heaters bring about and, as a result, it’s a lot less expensive to run.
Thus, when you replace your wasteful old electric convector heaters with energy-efficient infrared panel heaters, you stand to reduce your energy costs by as much as 60%.
This saving is substantial, but when you also consider the fact that infrared heating panels contain no moving parts and require no maintenance, you’ll really begin to appreciate their money-saving potential.
As an example of how much you can save, British Gas recommend you have your boiler serviced annually and at a cost of £50 - £80 per visit, this can run to quite a bill over the lifetime of the unit.
Use maintenance-free IR panels instead of gas central heating and, during their lifetime of up to 25 years, you’ll be looking at making savings of between £1,250 and £2000!
And these aren’t the only advantages of Infrared heating as you’ll see when you watch this short video presentation:
This image IR panel heater will be equally at home whether it’s mounted on a wall and a ceiling, and when it’s in place no one will even realise that it’s not simply a stunning picture until they feel the heat it’s kicking out!
Ultra-discreet and space-saving, you’ll effectively be hiding your heating in plain sight, but maybe the area you’re looking to heat doesn’t require quite much power as this panel emits. This isn’t a problem because we have a wide range of different sizes for you to choose from.
At the other end of the spectrum, our 595 x 595mm models will produce 350W and will be perfect for relatively small spaces like guest bedrooms and home office areas.
Larger spaces such as your living room and dining area will be better suited to more powerful panels such as the 595 x 995, 595 x 1195 or 795 x 1195s. These IR panels emit 580W, 700W and 900W respectively, but you’ll notice their capacity rises along with their dimensions so it’s important that you choose exactly the right one(s) for the size of your space.
To help you achieve this, we’ve produced a handy guide and you’ll find an Infrared Panel Calculator at the head of each description page.
Don’t forget that we have a massive selection of other images to choose from as well. Indeed, you’ll be able to take your pick from styles including Cars, Aquatic, Transport and Urban & Architecture to name but a few!
When you purchase one of our amazing Infrared heating products, you’ll be given 14 days from the date of your order during which to try it out at home.

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.
