These Ecostrad Accent IR infrared heaters are designed primarily for ceiling mounted fitting. The 270w panel can be used in ceiling grids and simply slots into place with no additional fixtures needed. Otherwise, all of the panels must be purchased with either the direct mounting kit or the suspension mounting kit. These kits are sold separately. Ecostrad Accent IR Infrared Ceiling Panels can be wall mounted if desired but due to their lower wattages, the stated ‘heats up to’ areas will be reduced. Please see our dedicated Accent IR wall mounted range for heaters that are specially designed for this use.
Accent panels can be installed in bathroom zones 2 or 3, however, they must be hardwired to a fused spur by a professional electrician. This is not a DIY task. Always defer to the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding the bathroom suitability of any product.
Please take care when installing multiple electric heaters to avoid overloading the ring main of your property. If you are unsure, always consult a professional electrician, who will be able to hardwire them to the mains via a fused spur if necessary.
Ecostrad Accent IR Infrared Ceiling Panels come with a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty on the heater body and a separate 1 Year Warranty on the receiver.

What You Will Need
An unobtrusive choice for homes, offices and even public buildings, the Ecostrad Accent IR ceiling panel provides efficient heating that’s safely kept out of reach. By choosing a ceiling mounted heating solution, this ensures that all of the warmth produced is directed down to where it’s needed, comfortably heating workstations and seating areas throughout the day.
The Accent delivers gentle far infrared heat, which is absorbed by walls and surfaces to bring your interiors up to a uniform temperature. There’s no heat loss through draughts – the infrared it emits is retained by the fabric of the building which means that less energy is needed to keep your rooms at the right comfort level. It creates this mellow heat using a carbon crystal film element that efficiently conducts heat into the room whilst also ensuring the panel is ultra-light. The elements in Accent panels are all covered with a patented, fire-resistant coating that protects the elements whilst conducting heat efficiently into the room.
Each Ecostrad Accent IR infrared ceiling panel comes with its own remote control which allows you to program a heating schedule for the whole week. Using its timer function, you can set a heating interval Monday to Friday, with separate schedules for Saturday and Sunday, so you can have your heaters switch off when warmth isn’t needed. It also includes an adaptive start function to pre-heat rooms, an open window sensor to save energy, as well as a comfort override option to temporarily heat at your desired temperature. The remote contains the room thermostat and can be used with any number of Accent IR panels, which is handy if you have multiple heaters in the same space. If you want to use your heater manually or wire it into a different external control system, you can use the bypass switch on the receiver at the rear of the panel. This gives you the option of basic manual control if that’s all you need or the freedom to use it with the thermostat of your choice.
These Accent IR panels can be installed in a number of different ways: you can purchase them with a direct mounting kit for a fitting that’s tight to the ceiling, or purchase them with a suspension kit which can be the better choice for high-ceilinged rooms. Our smallest 270w panel is also suitable for installation in a standard office ceiling grid, in which case, it can simply be slotted into place without the need for any extra fittings.
Accent IR infrared ceiling panels are able to use a lower wattage to heat rooms compared to their wall mounted counterparts due to their fitting location. As they’re installed on the ceiling, they stay warmer for longer because heat naturally rises to the top of the room; this means they don’t need to use as much power to maintain the same temperature. By opting for a ceiling mounted heating solution, you can warm interiors using less energy overall which means even bigger long-term savings on running costs.
Ecostrad Accent IR infrared ceiling panels are designed to be as versatile as possible and can be installed in three different ways to suit the space you need to heat:Direct mounted to the ceiling When purchased with the direct mounting kit, these panels can be installed so that they’re fixed tight to the surface of the ceiling, offering an unobtrusive look that blends in with your interior décor. This type of fitting is great for rooms with a standard ceiling height. Suspended from the ceiling Purchase the suspension kit if you have a high-ceilinged property and need to bring the panels closer to the floor. The kit comes supplied with wires that can be cut to the required length so you can easily keep the panels at the ideal height. Installed in a ceiling grid The 270w infrared panel in the Accent IR range is just the right size to fit into suspended ceiling grids in offices and other commercial locations. When used in this way, it will neatly slot into place without the need to purchase any installation kits.
For effortless control, every Accent IR panel is supplied with a remote so you can program your heaters from the comfort of your chair. You can set an interval for your heating Monday to Friday and separate intervals for Saturday and Sunday to create a schedule that matches your routine. Whenever your heating isn’t warming to the times dictated by your program, the Ecostrad Accent IR switches off to save energy, ensuring that you’re never wasting power. If you need a little more heat than usual, there’s no need to adjust your settings – an integrated comfort override feature lets you temporarily choose a higher temperature without the need to alter your set schedule.
The Accent IR’s remote control also houses the room thermostat, which is accurate to 0.5 °C for near total precision. You can program any number of Accent IR infrared wall panels with the remote so if you have multiple heaters in one space, they can all be set to follow the same schedule with little effort. Use a remote for each heater or use fewer remotes to create discrete zones throughout your property – with the Accent IR, you can group your panels together as you see fit.
If you have another control system you want to wire the heater into, all you have to do is use the bypass switch on the rear of the Accent IR panel. This switch breaks the connection with the thermostatic remote and allows the heater to follow the instructions of your external controller, so you’re free to change how you manage your heating further down the line.
