Features & Benefits
Why Do Heating Panels Outperform Traditional Heating Systems?
Because the Sun Heats Better than the Wind…
More traditional heating sources incorporate the use of forced air heat – air is heated remotely and then transported to various destinations via conduits or ducts. Obviously, much of that energy will be lost during transportation and through the doors and windows.
With radiant heat, since air movement is not involved, the objects it meets (including people) absorb more of the heat – up to 85%. Those heated objects then heat the surrounding air. This results in:
- More balanced temperature distribution, resulting in only a 1 or 2-degree variation between the floor and ceiling versus 5 or 6 degrees or more with forced air
- Less dust particulate movement – reducing reactions such as asthma, allergies, mucous membrane infection, etc.
- Comfortable humidity levels because there is little movement to create condensation, which removes moisture from the air. There is also lower loss of heat with pressurised air passing through window gaps and leaky walls
- Reduced costs because zero maintenance is required. This is because radiant heating panels have no moving parts
- No drafts, which are created by air moving from high to low pressure areas
The most significant advantage to Comfortline panels is the ability to control heat to specific spaces quickly. You simply enter a room, switch on the heat and turn it off when leaving.
They can also be automated using timers, thermostats and building automation systems. As a result, most living or work spaces can be maintained at cooler ambient temperatures, while ceiling heat panels are positioned for specific areas and uses
If hot air rises, doesn’t all the heat from radiant heating panels gravitate toward the ceiling? No. The reason for this is that radiant panels do not emit heated air, just heat. Like the heat of the sun, they surround you with comforting warmth.
The Benefits of electric radiant heat over gas heat
The heat generated by gas heating involves forced air. Some heat energy is lost before reaching the target are, as well as through the doors and window frames. In contrast, radiant heat emanates directly from the unit and 85% of the heat generated is absorbed by the people in the target area.
Indoor and outdoor environments including: offices, factories, warehouses, workshops, garages, schools, churches, colleges, cafes, restaurants, nursing homes, hostels, community halls, shops, homes etc.
The Comfortline range distributes heat downwards, covering between 6m2 and 15m2, depending on the mounted height.
The mushroom-type gas heater offers coverage between 2m2 and 6m2 with extreme heat near the unit and cold a short distance away.
A sngle high capacity Comfortline panel costs about 60c/hour* to run, while a typical mushroom heater on bottled gas can cost up to five times at $3.00/hr**

“…we are very happy with the end result in the alfresco areas of our cake and coffee shop.” – Nick Poupouzas, Oakleigh Quality Cakes Pty Ltd.
Comfortline panels emit up to 10% more usable heat than similar panels. This additional heat output is a result of our unique “Silicating Treatment” on the heating surfaces.
Simply put, the surfaces are roughened, which increases their surface area and thus their capacity to radiate heat. The high level of insulation increases efficiency and aids in eliminating vibrations.
There is no comparison when it comes to the advantages of Comfortline panels over high intensity gas “mushroom” style heaters for outdoor comfort. Our heating panels are:
|More economical to purchase|
|Up to 5 times as efficient to operate|
|Odourless and non-polluting|
|Ceiling, surface and recessed mounted|
Radiant outdoor heating panels from Comfortline provide the most comfortable answer to the challenge of heating exterior gathering places.
With many interior spaces, such as warehouses or places unusual architectural configurations and vaulted ceilings, the ability to sensibly position heat is paramount.
Can you imagine the energy savings you might achieve by reducing the building thermostat 5 degrees and providing comfortable heating panels for the stationary staff? If you want maximum productivity from your organisation, their personal comfort is in your best interest.
It is imperative that your patrons are comfortable to ensure repeat business. Rather than guessing at the right configuration for your indoor heating needs.

The Comfortline Excel panels reflect over two decades of manufacturing and design expertise. The high level of heat emission is a result of the unique ‘silicating’ treatment on the heating element’s surface. This increases the actual surface area, ensuring the highest possible level of heat emission from the surface of each panel. The panels are packed with ceramic insulation that reduces the heat losses upwards, making them extremely efficient to run. We back this excellence with 5 years’ warranty!
With a Comfortline overhead heating solution to suit every application, there is no space you cannot heat! From small pokey areas to large offices and hot yoga studios, there is a heater suitable for all. All of our Comfortline heaters are low maintenance, cost effective to run and non-intrusive – if it weren’t for the comforting heat you would hardly know they are there!
- New 5-year warranty
- Upgraded modern design with slanted panel edges
- Higher resistance against corrosion: The new model has two anti-corrosive coatings that are applied to metal sheet parts made from AluZinc. Connecting material is also made from the same material and thus electrochemical reactions and the corrosion of parts is not likely to take place
- Simplified Installation – the new model has been lengthened by 50mm, 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 allowing easier installation.
- Extension of the non-heating part of the heating rod by 50mm. This 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.
The Comfortline Terrace heater is our newest edition. With a sleek black surface, these heaters are designed for the zonal heating of winter gardens, enclosed and/or roofed balconies and terraces. Each heater is equipped with tilt-able mounting brackets for wall mounting at an angle, with additional brackets allow grouping multiple heaters for a broader coverage.
The minimum height at which the panels can be installed is 1.8m above the floor (the lower edge of the panel), making them the perfect solution for smaller areas. Like the excel, they are cost effective to run, low maintenance and ideal for indoor or outdoor spaces. We also back this with 5 years’ warranty!
The Comfortline Slimline panels are designed to be either surface mounted or recessed. They are perfect for smaller spaces such as bathrooms, living areas, offices and bedrooms where you want to achieve direct zonal heating. They can even be installed directly over a bath, pools or wet areas as our 750w model comes in two different IP ratings: 44 and 65.
The superior level of heat emission is due to the unique surface treatment on both the inner and outer heating surfaces. The treatment on the inner side is called ‘Thermoquartz’ – this material assures the highest absorption of heat from the heating foil. The outer layer is called ‘Gravely Snow’ which ensures the highest efficiency of emission. We back this heater with 2 years’ warranty!
The Comfortline Mirror Heating Foils (also known as ‘demister’) is the ideal solution to eliminate foggy and steamy mirrors. No more wiping or streaks being left on your mirror! These are quick and easy to install and can fit most sized mirrors. They are low maintenance, have low running costs and can be operated via a light switch.
The Comfortline Celling Heating foils are perfect for any new construction or existing homes where access to the space above the ceiling is available. This system can be thermostatically controlled and can easily replace or supplement existing heat sources. It provides “surround” radiant heat that feels wonderful in every room.
Consisting of a thin carbon film heating element sandwiched between two layers of high temperature plastic laminate, these foils are positioned to lie directly on top of a plasterboard ceiling, beneath the bulk ceiling insulation. The insulation minimises upward heat losses and directs the heat downward into the room below. These are low maintenance and have low running costs. We back these heating foils with 2 years’ warranty!
