Hevac heats up outdoor hospitality market

Hevac has a reputation for the diversity of its product portfolio, and especially for the quality of the products from the market-leading brands the company represents.

Schwank, a global market leader in the manufacture of gas-fired infrared radiant heaters, is a typical example. Many hotels, restaurants, pubs and cafes in Ireland and overseas have already benefited from Schwank’s high performance, energy- efficient, gas-fired outdoor heaters. 

Their recently launched lunaSchwank range – stocked by Hevac – is an exciting new development for management and customers alike, combining the latest advances in radiant heating technology with elegant cutting-edge design.

Capable of being wall-mounted or installed on an overhead structure, lunaSchwank heaters are not intrusive so, unlike conventional mushroom patio heaters, they do not take up valuable terrace space. This offers hospitality venues the opportunity to create more covers and open areas.

Schwank’s patio heaters, which run on natural gas but can also operate with propane or butane gas, offer average energy savings of 62% when compared with conventional patio heating systems. This means that they contribute both cost and environmental benefits to locations where they are installed.

Available from Hevac, lunaSchwank heaters provide comfortable heat, activated by a single switch and felt almost immediately. Heat is distributed uniformly evenly across large terraces without the separated hot spots associated with mushroom heaters. Two-stage modulation enables users to reduce heating temperature by half, cutting energy consumption and adding to customer comfort. 

Like previous ranges of Schwank patio heaters, lunaSchwank is ideal for all weathers, incorporating a highly effective rain protection hood and Schwank’s unique WindSecure system, which ensures that the heater’s flame is almost completely wind-resistant; a great asset particularly in coastal and windy areas.

Gas-fired infrared radiant heaters generate radiation, which is transferred into heat once it reaches objects and people. So, the air is not heated directly, and heat is felt almost instantaneously.

The lunaSchwank range is sold by Hevac alongside the well-established Schwank terrasSchwank patio heaters, and comprises three fully pre-assembled models measuring 752mm, 936mm and 1120mm in width.
