    The Herschel Colorado is not suitable for DIY installation and must be installed by a professional electrician.

    In an indoor setting, at 3.5m from the floor, the Colorado can heat areas up to 18m². At 2.5m from the floor, it will heat an area of 12m². Although the heated area will decrease as the Colorado is brought closer to the floor, the intensity of the heat will increase - so please take this into consideration when positioning your heaters. In an outdoor setting, the Colorado will heat a maximum area of 12m² at 3.5m from the floor. At 2.5m from the floor, it will heat an area of 7m². For exposed outdoor areas prone to heavy gusts or winds, a quartz heater may be a more suitable option.

    The Colorado can be installed indoors and outdoors, either as a freestanding unit when used with a compatible stand (not supplied), or as a ceiling or wall mounted heater using the brackets provided. Do not use freestanding patio heaters outside during wet weather – always ensure they are taken inside if it threatens to rain.

    The Colorado must be mounted at least 500mm from walls and ceilings: it cannot be installed any lower than 1.8m from the floor. Ensure the Colorado is positioned between a 0° - 45° angle beneath the horizontal to avoid activating the safety tilt switch.

    The Herschel Colorado has an IP55 rating, protecting it from low pressure jets of water and the ingress of fine particles. This rating makes the Colorado suitable for outdoor installation, however, you may wish to opt for a heater with a higher rating for particularly exposed or harsh outdoor locations.

    Please note: the quartz bulb inside the heater is fragile. Handle the heater with care when unpackaging, removing the foam spacer, and installing.

The Herschel Colorado is a powerful 2500w medium-wave infrared heater designed for unenclosed indoor and sheltered outdoor commercial spaces. The Colorado’s durable carbon heating element and high-quality aluminium body make it a premium infrared product.

The Colorado comes with four incremental heater settings ranging from 25% of its full output to 100%, as well as an integrated timer function that can be used to control the heater for up to 9 hours. Completely silent when in operation, the Colorado offers 10,000+ hours of use from a low-glare heating element – providing long lasting, comfortable heat without the harsh brightness of other quartz heaters.

Intended for use in both sheltered outdoor and unenclosed indoor locations, the Colorado is a versatile commercial heater suitable for a range of applications and can even act as a portable unit when used with a compatible stand.

The Herschel Colorado sports a classic, understated appearance that’s ideal for bustling café terraces and public halls, as well as industrial environments such as loading bays and workshops. Finished in a smart black powder coat, the Colorado looks at home in any environment, in or out of the public eye.

Thermostats & Controllers

We stock remote and non-remote versions of the Herschel Colorado – without the remote, the Colorado doesn’t support the timer function and will simply heat at its maximum output when turned on. In order to accurately control the non-remote Colorado, we recommend purchasing one of our additional controllers. Using a thermostat, such as the Salus Wireless, can greatly improve the efficiency of an infrared product, allowing you to regulate the temperature and avoid wasteful heating.
