Overhead radiant heating panels offer a gentle heat from above….
This modern form of comfort heating has elements that can heat to a range of temperatures allowing flexibility in the amount of gentle warmth that radiates downwards. Radiant heat energy has a similar effect to the heat given off by the sun on a cold winter day. Comfortline panels create a desirable climate for outdoor patio and entertainment areas. Unlike some high intensity mushroom heaters that can direct intense and concentrated heat in one direction leading to extreme overheating, Comfortline panels radiate a natural and gentle warmth that can be enjoyed for hours on end. Comfortline panels have a unique surface treatment that effectively maximises their radiant efficiency.
APPLICATIONS: Indoor and outdoor environments including offices, factories, warehouses, workshops, garages, schools, churches, colleges, cafes, restaurants, nursing homes, hostels, community halls, shops, and homes.
PRECISION COMFORT, LOW RUNNING COSTS, ENERGY EFFICIENT, AND EASY TO INSTALL
Comfortline panels emit up to 10% more usable heat than similar panels on the market thanks to their unique surface treatment. They are packed with rock wool insulation to minimise upward heat loss. The radiant surface is designed in sections of naturally anodised aluminium, set in a galvanised steel case for strength. The panels are plastic powder-coated in white, giving them a sleek and attractive modern appeal. Other colours are available by special order.
PRECISION COMFORT AND ECONOMY: Comfortline panels are offered with one, two or three panels. The higher output models with multiple elements can run independent of each other giving greater control over the radiant heat output.
IMPRESSIVE LOW RUNNING COSTS: A single high capacity Comfortline panel costs about 60c/hour # to run. A typical mushroom heater on bottled gas will cost five times that — up to $3.00/hour^.
INSTALLATION & MOUNTING: Installation is easy in new or existing buildings. You can mount the panel directly overhead (brackets supplied), or suspend them. Comfortline is perfect for overhead spaces as low as 2.4m, right up to

Principle of infrared heating
Radiant heating panels transfer heat mainly through radiant energy, whereas in convection heating the air is warmed
by a convector which then transfers heat as it flows over the objects that are to be heated (walls, furniture). Upon encountering objects (walls, furniture, floors), radiant engergy is partially reflected (approx. 15%), the majority (approx. 85%) is absorbed by the objects. This radiant energy is converted to heating energy as it raises the temperature of the objects, which then transfer heat to the cooler air by convection. Thanks to unique technology Silicating, high temperature radiant panels reach high emissivity up to 0,98 mu.
Comfortline Excel – Excellence in Overhead Heating!
Upgraded anticorrosive technology, Enhanced design, Improved Quality
The European-made Comfortline Excel is a new and improved version of Comfortline Original series setting an even further refined standard for the quality and workmanship behind these high temperature overhead heating panels. Comfortline Excel model takes into account the results of overseas analysis and recommendations from sources such as the Thales laboratory in Australia. This new series of panels is tried, tested and true reflecting over two decades of manufacturing and design expertise and experience.
A few improvements:
- New 5 year warranty!
- Higher resistance against corrosion than with some past models: the new model has two anticorrosive coatings that are applied to metal sheet parts made from AluZinc. Connecting material is also made from the same material and thus elec- trochemical reactions and the corrosion of parts is not likely to take place.
- Upgraded modern design with slanted panel edges
- Simplified Installation: the new model has been lengthened by 50 mm simplifying the connection to the supply conductors. This provides more space for the terminal and makes the connection of the product to the supply conductors much easier. The terminal is also now accessible from two sides after lifting the lid allowing for greater ease of installation.
- Extension of the non-heating part of the heating rod by 50mm allows it to extend as far as the terminal, thus eliminating the need to pass the conductors from the heating rod into the space containing the terminal.
