  • Manuals & Installation

    View or download the Herschel Summit datasheet and installation manual here.

    The Herschel Summit can be wall or ceiling mounted using the brackets and accessories provided with the heater. Please ensure it is mounted as per the manufacturer’s guidelines: 2.1 – 2.7m from the floor and at least 300mm away from any adjacent surfaces. The Summit should never be installed any lower than 1.8m from floor level. The surface of the Summit reaches temperatures over 350 °C and in all instances should never be installed in a location where there is risk of physical contact with the heater. The Summit has a cable length of 2m and is not supplied with a plug.

    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 the radiant heat will be able to replenish, so please bear these facts in mind when choosing an installation location for your heater.

    In an indoor location at 2.7m from floor level, the Summit can heat areas up to 16m², and at 2.1m from floor level will heat an area of 9m². Though the heated area decreases as it is brought closer to the floor, the heat given off by the Summit will intensify, so please take this into consideration when positioning your heaters. In an outdoor location, the Summit will heat a maximum area of 9m² at 2.7m from floor level and a minimum of 6m² at 2.1m. For exposed outdoor locations or areas that are prone to gusts and breezes, a quartz or carbon fibre infrared heater may be a better option.

    This product has an IP65 rating which means it is resistant to low pressure jets of water and is completely dust tight. This IP rating provides adequate protection from the elements but please be aware that the Summit’s gentle heat is not effective in exposed locations.

  • Warranty
    The Herschel Summit comes with a 2 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

The Summit is a completely discreet space heating solution designed for open-plan commercial interiors that need a reliable source of warmth. The far infrared emitted by this heater is as gentle as the heat provided by an infrared panel, but due to its higher wattage it can project heat out with a little more intensity, making it ideal for use in larger indoor spaces. Sporting a chic matt black finish, the Summit will blend inconspicuously into the background of any interior décor scheme.

Due to its gentle heat, the best application for the Summit is indoors, paired with a thermostatic controller. Thermostatic controllers offer a precision means of managing comfort levels and include weekly programming functionality for total convenience. You can split the heaters in your property into different zones that can be individually programmed to reflect the pattern of use in each the space. The Summit is also available with a remote control which may be preferable if you want to use the heater in a sheltered outdoor space.  

Cutting-Edge Heating Technology

The Summit works similarly to an infrared panel and produces heat using a Kanthal AF wire, an exceptionally hard-wearing element capable of withstanding temperatures up to 1300 °C. As the wire heats up, warmth is spread evenly across the surface of the Summit, providing a comfortable heat that can be used throughout the day. Summit infrared heaters get to full temperature in under 10 minutes so large commercial spaces can be warmed quickly and with minimal effort. Their matt black exteriors and lightweight aluminium housings provide commercial areas with a zero-light heating solution that’s both stylish and discreet.

Summit infrared heaters are designed to be as versatile as possible for interior spaces which is why they have an adjustable wall bracket that allows them to be ceiling mounted if desired. The Summit can be suspended from any height between 2.1 – 2.7m and its heat intensity will change depending on how close it is from the ground. At 2.7m from floor level indoors, the Summit has the capability of heating a 16m² area to a lower intensity, which may be more suitable for spaces that only require a background level of heat. When installed at 2.1m from the floor, the Summit will heat a smaller area of 9m² but to a higher intensity, which may be the preferred choice for draughtier indoor spaces that require a stronger level of warmth. Please note that if the Summit is used outside, these heated areas will be reduced – see our Installation section for more information. Though this heater can be fitted at different heights, please be aware that in all instances the Summit should never be installed in a location where there is risk of physical contact with the heater.

The Summit comes with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty and has an IP65 ingress protection rating which will ensure it’s well protected against splashes of water and airborne dust. No complex upkeep is necessary with this infrared heater and it will only require the occasional dust down to ensure it’s operating as effectively as possible.

The Benefits of Infrared

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 areas like large retail spaces, restaurants or meeting halls, as infrared can be zoned and directed to specific areas that are occupied frequently without wasting energy warming the entire room.
