Schwank Gas Radiant Overhead Tube Heaters & ThermoControl Plus Controller



High Efficiency, German-made Gas Radiant Overhead Heating Designed for Large Spaces

Schwank is the world leader in gas radiant heating. After having invented infrared gas heating over 75 years ago, Schwank has become internationally recognised for their state-of-the-art, high performing overhead heating systems.

Schwank is a German company with extensive experience in the development, production and implementation of heating systems. With over 160 000 satisfied customers and more than two million units sold their systems are delivered with the highest possible quality. Providing energy saving and CO2 minimising products is the foundation of Schwank’s philosophy and innovation is their passion.


These German-made tube heaters have a fast pay-back and have proven their exceptional efficiency time and time again, reducing energy consumption by up to 50% when compared to traditional heating systems used to warm large spaces.

The core of the Schwank infrared radiant tube heater is the innovative "Whisper-Jet" burner with positive pressure fans that create a very long laminar flame reaching

far into the tube. This leads to a more uniform transfer of heat which has an immediate positive effect on the energy efficiency of the overall system.

The tube is heated up to around 650°C and generates comfortable radiant heat. A further advantage of the burner's pressure fan lies in the fact that it is not exposed to the hot flue gases and therefore has a much better longevity over conventional tube heater fans.

The heat felt by these heaters always sits above the actual air temperature. The lower air temperature also reduces the differences between inside and outside temperature - thus cutting down on the heat transmission losses at the same time.

The radiant heat emitted from these tubes not only considerably improves the warmth felt but it simultaneously reduces energy and operating costs. The savings usually range between 30% and 50% depending on the previous system and the building properties.
