Manuals & Installation

Apex patio heaters are suitable for DIY fitting provided they are used with a suitable IP rated plug. If hardwired, they must be installed by a professional electrician.
The Apex can be wall or ceiling mounted as per the manufacturer’s guidelines. Please ensure that clearance distances are adhered to when fitting: the Ecostrad Apex must be at least 1.8m from the floor and at least 50cm away from any adjacent surfaces. If wall mounted, it must be horizontally level with the control panel on the left. Please note that the carbon fibre bulb is delicate and every care should be taken not to damage it whilst unpacking or installing the heater. The surface temperature of the Apex can reach up to 95 °C, which is why the unit must be installed in a location where there is no risk of accidental contact.
The sensation of mediumwave infrared produced by this heater can be offset by wind chill. As such, we recommend installing the Apex away from any areas that are exposed to strong gusts and breezes, such as roller shutters and doors.
Ecostrad Apex infrared patio heaters come with an IP65 rating which means that they are dust-tight and will withstand low pressure jets of water.
Ecostrad Apex Infrared Patio Heaters come with a 1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

The Apex is an innovative new outdoor heater from Ecostrad and is designed to help you maximise your time outside. It offers efficient heat you can feel in a matter of seconds, and by using a carbon-fibre bulb, it strikes the perfect balance between performance and comfort. The mediumwave infrared it produces is strong enough to offset outdoor temperatures yet mellow enough to be used over longer periods and it also emits less light compared to its tungsten filament counterparts. Whether it’s for a home patio or a commercial outdoor seating area, the Ecostrad Apex is an efficient heating option that will help you enjoy alfresco living for longer throughout the year.
This version of the Ecostrad Apex comes without a remote control so that you have the option of pairing it with the external controller of your choosing. It gives you the freedom to use it outdoors with a timer, dimmer or proximity sensor, or it can also be used in some indoor applications with a thermostat. Apex patio heaters can be particularly useful for hard-to-heat interiors such as factory floors, industrial units and workshops and provide spot heating for specific spaces. When used indoors, the Apex can heat a maximum area of 15m² and when used outdoors, it will heat a maximum of 10m². If it is not used with a controller, this heater will simply heat at maximum output when switched on.
Ecostrad Apex Infrared Patio Heaters can be installed DIY when used with a socket that has an appropriate IP rating and come with a UK moulded plug. If you prefer a hardwired fitting, a professional electrician will be able to install it quickly and easily with no lengthy callouts required in most instances.
