Manuals & Installation
The Herschel Advantage IRP4 is designed for a ceiling mounted fitting only and must be installed by a professional electrician. Please ensure it is mounted as per the manufacturer’s guidelines: 2.8 – 3.5m from the floor and no lower, at least 125mm away from the ceiling, and 1.5m away from wall surfaces. The IRP4 comes with its own brackets, however, it can also be suspended from chains or attached to an appropriate mounting plate.
Though infrared radiant heat is not affected by the movement of air, the sensation of far infrared can be offset by persistent gusts and breezes that may come in from open windows, doors or roller shutters. This is because wind-chill can cool your body quicker than radiant heat can warm it, so please bear this in mind when choosing an installation location for your heater. In ideal conditions, the Herschel Advantage IRP4 will be able to heat areas up to 21m², however, this can be reduced by up to a third in exposed locations.
This product has an IP20 rating which means it offers no protection against water and limited protection against the ingress of solids. It is therefore unsuitable for installation in any location where it will be exposed to spraying water, splashes, drips or humidity.
To maximise the efficiency of your infrared heaters, we would highly recommend fitting them with additional controls. This can make them more versatile to use and also assist in reducing energy consumption to a minimum. We offer control units such as push-button timers, motion sensors and dimmers for outdoor heaters, as well as a wide range of thermostats for indoor installations. Though they may cost a little extra, heating controllers quickly pay for themselves by reducing your energy usage and your heating bills.
The Herschel Advantage IRP4 comes with a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

The Herschel Advantage IRP4 is a heating solution expressly tailored toward warming industrial spaces by providing high-output heat that won’t be affected by draughts or breezes. It uses four ceramic heating elements to create an expansive heated zone that will cover large areas of floor space, and is ideal for large workshops, sprawling factory floors or open-plan showrooms.
No other heating method is as effective as infrared when it comes to comfort heating for spacious interiors because it doesn’t rely on the movement of air to be felt. Convection heaters that work by producing warm air currents can be incredibly inefficient as heat is easily lost through draughts and poor insulation. Infrared radiation doesn’t have this issue. It travels through the air to warm people, surfaces and objects directly so all heat is transferred straight from the source to the end user. It’s a much more effective way of heating spacious, high heat-loss areas like warehouses, churches or garages, as infrared can be zoned and directed to specific areas that are occupied frequently without wasting energy warming the entire room.
Herschel ceramic heaters use far infrared heat to produce a comfortable sensation of warmth that can be felt on a deeper level compared to ordinary heaters. Their main advantage is that they combine the gentle heat of a domestic infrared solution but with a higher heat output that can project over large spaces. The ceramic elements take around five minutes to heat up because of the gentler form of infrared they use, but once they get to temperature, they provide pleasant heating that’s perfect for keeping staff, customers and clients warm throughout the day.
The Herschel Advantage IRP4 is a ceiling mounted heater which uses steel reflectors to project as wide a spread of heat as possible. Its 2600W output means that it has the potential to heat areas up to 21m² and can be used with other IRP4 units to create thorough and even warmth throughout your entire space, no matter how large it may be. Although this product is designed to be mounted well out of reach, it also includes a protective grille so that the heating elements can’t be touched by accident. This ceramic heater is excellent for industrial environments as it produces no visible light when in use so you can be sure workstations will be well heated without any distracting orange glare.
As testament to the outstanding quality of Herschel’s products, all of their ceramic heaters come with a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.
The Herschel Advantage IRP4 is designed for ceiling mounted fitting and can be mounted using the brackets provided or suspended from chains to the required height. No complex maintenance is required for this product and the only upkeep necessary is the occasional dust down with a soft cloth to ensure the heater runs as smoothly as possible. We highly recommend pairing your ceramic heater with a suitable thermostatic controller, such as the Salus Wireless. This ensures your energy usage is kept as low as possible and provides you with precision control over heat levels.
