    You only need basic DIY knowledge to install your Herschel Select XL Glass panels. When wall-mounting your panels, the wall bracket for the Select XL functions as a template for you to drill the necessary holes into the wall. After you have done this, simply screw this bracket to the wall and you’re ready to hang your new panel. Herschel’s new Easyfix design makes fitting your panels easy. Four mounting fixings are located on the rear of your panel – these slot into place onto the mounting bracket and can be secured by moving your panel to the right, down, and then to the right again. 

    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. Hardwiring into the mains is not a DIY job. If you’re thinking of installing your glass panel in a bathroom, you will need to have it hardwired by a qualified electrician in an appropriate location. These panels are IP45 rated, which means they are protected against jets of 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 Inspire 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.

  • What You Will Need

Heat your home in minimalist elegance with a Herschel Select XL Glass Infrared Heating Panel. Designed to complement any interior, these sleek glass panels provide gentle infrared heat and sophisticated styling. This 500w black glass panel is ideal for discreet heating and can be effectively used in bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, and hallways.

The Select XL collection is Herschel’s affordable infrared panel range, manufactured with a high-quality frameless design and modern aesthetic. Herschel’s Select XL Glass range is a focal point for any interior and provides energy-efficient radiant heat as well as subtle style. The Select XL Glass range includes four different sizes of panel and comes with a prominent black or lustrous white finish. This stylish low energy heater is finished in a bold black colour.

This Herschel Select XL Glass panel is designed for wall mounted use and makes an attractive addition to any household interior. With an ultra-slim depth of just 25mm, this glass infrared panel is unobtrusive and can be used in homes and businesses with ease. 

With Herschel’s new Easyfix bracket, wall mounting your Select XL is a straightforward DIY task that only requires basic tools. The Select XL does not come with a fitted plug, so you will need to either attach one, if you want to be able to easily move the panel, or have the panels hardwired by a professional electrician.

Our range of Herschel Select XL Glass Infrared Heating Panels are available in two sizes: 500w, and 700w, and can be purchased in either black or white.

Thermostats & Controllers

Herschel Select XL Glass 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 XL Glass panel 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.
