Features & Benefits of Carbon Fibre Heating
The Coolest way to stay warm™
Slim Aerodynamic Construction – doesn’t blow over like gas heaters!
The ultra slimline Elliptical design is manufactured to withstand strong gusts of wind. It has a 15Kg Heavy Weight base of 46cm diameter which will not only pass the CE safety standard 15° Tilt Test but will even self-right from 30deg (double). *It can even be bolted to the ground if required as a permanent feature.*
3.5mm Extruded Aluminium Construction – never rusts!
The ultra slimline design is manufactured from 3.5mm extruded Aluminium which is coated in a heavy duty weather resistant paint (UV Protected for outdoor use). All other parts are either aluminium or stainless steel to further enhance the longevity and weather beating properties of the unit. For long periods of inactivity we recommend using the weatherproof cover (which is included in the box) and storing in a secure dry location.
60/60 Aluminium extrusion is the top grade produced in UK– it is lightweight and very durable with tremendous anti–corrosion properties. In fact 98% of all Aluminium ever produced is still in existence! Therefore, our Chillchaser® heaters can be recycled at the end of their lives and in fact we will even collect them from the consumer at the end of its life.
They are NOT being considered for the EU ban – No worries about having to remove them from your commercial premises.
Recent legislation changes and recommendations by the EU Government and HSE mean most major cities in Europe now ban the use of gas patio heaters in Public places mainly for safety and environmental reasons.
Commercial quality design and build – Suitable for all premises!
From Aberdeen Scotland to Christchurch New Zealand our heaters are being used as spot heaters in a huge variety of outlets and factories. We even have 10 on an oil platform in Algiers!
Carbon fibre tubes – Far-Infra-Red heating – The light of Life!
2 heat settings: 1500w & 3000w or for certain EU countries a lower power rating 1200 & 2400W (i.e France & Sweden)
Uses a standard 220-240V 50Hz AC electric supply: No heavy gas cylinders or harmful Gases
Also available soon with 120V – 50/60Hz for USA, Canada & Japan
Carbon fibre technology is derived from the technology used in hospitals to treat circulation disorders and skin complaints. It has been proven to be the most natural, versatile and healthy form of heat. Far Infra-Red heat combines to maintain body vitality and increase metabolic functions without any detrimental effects. Wavelengths of 0.8 to1.4 microns are the optimum energy wavelengths absorbed by the human body making Carbon fibre the ideal heating medium for indoor and outdoor heating....the heat rays developed by the carbon fibre tubes provide infrared heat which heats people. These tubes DO NOT HEAT THE AIR!
Tube life extends to approximately 6000 - 8000 hours; over 4 years life at an average of 5 hours per day operation.
The tubes are easily replaceable and available from our Online Shop.
Instant Heat – Maximum Heating effect in less than 30 seconds
Under real conditions, even outdoors, you will feel the heat in under 30 seconds – 2 meters away. This is especially beneficial for smoking areas where the economy setting should be used to save energy and lower carbon emissions.
Energy Saving lights – no need for Power-Hungry floodlights!
Some models have a high lumen energy saving 25W CFL lamp as standard (LED options also available; 5W). Lamp life approximately 6000 hours; over 4 years life expectancy at an average of 5 hours per day operation. 25,000hr LED lamps will be introduced on-going in 2012/13.
*if the heater is to be fixed permanently to the ground then appropriate electrical wiring must be used. E.g. Armoured cable.
Low Running Costs 36p/hour - compare £7/hour for gas heaters
In full maximum heat operation ChillChaser® units draw up to 3Kw of power per hour. Because they only heat people and not the air they are not affected by the wind. Efficient power-heat conversion of 95%. Average UK electricity costs are approximately £0.12 per Kw/hour, giving the unit an approximate running cost of £0.36 per hour when in full operation (both heating tubes plus light). However, when using the PIR economy button this is further reduced hence reducing the energy costs even further. Compare this running cost against the cost of frequently replacing gas cylinders in your area = £7/hr.? What is the cost saving? = £6.64 every hour of use.
What is the reduction in Carbon Emissions? = at least 70%
RadarSense™ PIR economy feature - Reducing energy costs even further!
PIR (Passive Infrared) economy feature automatically turns off the heater when there is no movement by any person in front of the unit (1 Minute & 4 Minute Settings). The unit will automatically switch back on when it detects movement by a person in its vicinity. This obviously saves considerable energy and money. It also frees up the owner to carry on without worrying about the wasted energy.
Silent Running – Unlike Gas our heaters have No Noise!!
Nothing is worse than the horrible roaring racket of a gas patio heater smell when you are trying to eat or drink Alfresco L - simply replace them with our ChillChaser® Heaters and enjoy peace, tranquillity and warmth!
Odourless – Unlike Gas our heaters have Zero emissions!!
Nothing is worse than the smell and fumes coming from a gas patio heater when you are trying to eat or drink Alfresco L - simply replace them with our ChillChaser® Heaters and avoid customer complaints (at least about the heating).
Masterlock™ Safety feature – No tampering by Children or public!
This function disables the main unit control panel to render it inoperable / tamper proof. In operation the unit is then managed by the remote control only.
Remote control - For an easy life!
“Full Function” remote control that pops easily into the rear handle or rear door of the unit for safekeeping.
Weather-proofed – IPx5 rating means “OK to leave outside”!
These units have patented weather proof fittings that have enabled the award of an IPX5 rating, which means that it is produced to be left outside and will not be affected by weather conditions, specifically water ingress. The heating tubes are installed in such a manner that they can take direct exposure to water, beer or even flammable liquids like whisky or Vodka!
Recommended operating temperatures have been tested from -20°C in Moscow to +25°C, although our heaters will automatically cut off at 25°C to save wasting energy.
Effective Heating Area – Head to Toe People heater NOT the Air!
The effective heating area of one unit is approximately 24m (5m radius from the unit at a heating angle of 110 degrees); the intensity of the heat is obviously greater the closer you are to the heat source / unit. Looks spectacular at night with that “bonfire red glow” without the smoke and pollution!
EasyFit Base™– Simple 1-Nut assembly to a one piece base!
The Heavy weight base of 15Kg is easy to assemble with a simple one nut & washer method. This base is designed to self-right even at 25° and withstand heavy winds or the odd drunk who may knock against it!
Safety Features– Easy to insure for public Liability Insurance!
Safety tip-over switch built in to the unit, which cuts all power if the unit is knocked accidentally. No naked flames that can ignite chemicals or flammable liquid such as whisky. NB: - It won’t light cigarettes!
Chillchaser® Heaters have a corrosion resistant Protective Zinconium grille for safety, which whilst it does get warm in operation, will not scald/burn on contact, due to the way in which the carbon fibre tubes produce their effective heat output.
Chillchaser® Heaters are also fitted with an Auto-Reset Thermal Fuse which shuts down the unit in an overheat situation.
Safest Heater of its type on the market, for children, pets and the environment.
Lockable Cable Storage Door – Safe to store the 5m of cable and hide your remote control for safety
Protect your remote from theft or loss by storing it in the rear door compartment – store the cable in here when not in use.
Roller Base – Easy to move into the desired area or position!
Handle and base with rollers for easy mobility. The unit can however be bolted in position, if required. (Rawl fixings & armoured cable required)
