You only need basic DIY knowledge to wall mount your Herschel Select panels. If you’re fitting your panels on the walls, you can use the template provided to drill holes and fix the brackets to the wall. If you’re mounting the panels on the ceiling, they must be screwed to the ceiling joists or securely fitted into a suspended grid with suitable fixings. The Herschel Select feet can be purchased as an additional accessory to enable freestanding fitting. The feet simply clip to the base of the panel and are suitable for all sizes of Select panel.
When it comes to connecting your panels to the mains, you can either fit a plug on the end of the cable – the best option if you want to be able to move the panels later – or have them hardwired by a professional electrician. All Select panels come with a 2.5m cable.
Herschel Select panels are suitable for use in bathrooms, provided they are hardwired by a professional electrician in an appropriate location. The panels are IP44 rated, which means they are protected against splashing water. Always defer to the manufacturer’s guidelines about the bathroom suitability of any product.
We always recommend installing your panels with thermostatic controls. A thermostat will control the heat output of your panel, ensuring your rooms stay at the right temperature without wasting energy. A thermostat with programming functionality will also allow you to schedule your heating, helping you save energy by heating only occupied rooms. The Herschel iQ system is a great choice for Select panels, giving you thermostat control from one central location. Herschel iQ receivers must be hardwired, however alternative plug-in controllers are available.
This panel has a heat reach of approximately 2.5 – 3m.
Herschel Select Infrared Panels come with a 5 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

What You Will Need
Herschel Select Panels provide a versatile infrared heating system, with three sizes of slimline panel which can be fitted on walls and ceilings. The 540w panel can heat up to 12m2, offering a discreet and convenient heating solution for homes, public buildings and offices.
Both domestic and commercial spaces can benefit from the energy efficient radiant warmth of infrared – and with Herschel Select Panels, it’s now possible on a budget. The slim aluminium panels are only 25mm thick, with a white finish, aluminium frame and steel backing panel with brackets for easy fitting. Lightweight and stylish, these low energy heaters can be mounted on the wall or ceiling, or used free standing when purchased with a set of feet. Herschel Select panels reach temperatures of 85 – 95 °C, the optimum temperature range to deliver comfortable, natural far infrared heat. If you’re using the panels in a child’s room, home for the elderly, or a busy public space, you may prefer to mount the panels on the ceiling to prevent them being touched.
Herschel Select Panels are very easy to wall mount DIY. All you have to do is screw the brackets to the wall and mount the infrared panel onto the brackets. The Select can be used as a plug-in heater if you attach a 3-pin plug to the cable, however if you prefer to keep the wires hidden, the panel can also be hardwired by a qualified electrician. This is necessary if you want to use the panels in a bathroom. Whether you go for a DIY approach or plump for professional fitting, installing electric heating is always a lot faster and cheaper than plumbing central heating.
Our range of Herschel Select infrared panels includes three sizes: 350w, 540w and 700w.
Thermostats & Controllers
Herschel Select Panels do not come with in-built controls. This is to protect the lifespan of the products, which will usually extend for decades, well beyond the 5-year manufacturer’s warranty. Rugged and durable, with no moving parts, your Herschel Select panels should outlive any digital components. It’s for this reason that we sell thermostats, timers and programmers separately. Your controllers wire in separately, and you can replace them as many times as you want without damaging the panels. This also gives you the freedom to choose exactly how you want to control your panels – collectively or individually, automatically or manually, remotely or directly.
We always recommend installing your panels with a programmable thermostat. Thermostats monitor and maintain temperatures, whilst programmers allow you to set each panel to a heating schedule with different temperatures at different times of the day. This will drastically reduce your energy usage, and ensures your rooms are comfortable whenever you need them. Infrared panels with thermostatic controls can be up to 60% more efficient than traditional convection heating systems.
Benefits of Far Infrared
Infrared panels give off most of their heat as far infrared radiation. This is a gentle, natural form of heat which travels at a similar wavelength to the heat given off by our bodies. Far infrared feels gentle but is easily absorbed by our bodies, making it one of the most efficient ways to heat homes and offices. Unlike outdoor infrared products which give off visible light and a more intense form of infrared heat, far infrared remains comfortable for hours on end – a luxurious heating solution that’s ideal for all your main living spaces. Other uses for far infrared include spas, yoga studios and incubators for babies.
Infrared heating is growing in popularity all the time as home and business owners recognise the unique benefits and unparalleled energy efficiency offered by these versatile panels. Radiant heat warms people, objects and surfaces directly, minimising the heat loss through draughts and the circulation of air. Radiant heat allows you to zone your heating, and it can also reduce damp and prevent the circulation of dust – the ideal heating solution for allergy sufferers. The panels are durable, require no maintenance and are the natural choice to pair with solar panels for 100% carbon free heating.
