Improvements in heating technology have dramatically increased our ability to enjoy outdoor activities and infrared radiant heating systems supply some of the most effective outdoor heating solutions in terms of performance, flexibility and reliability. With infrared heaters, efficiency in the use of energy leads to both savings in the operating costs of outdoor locations and reductions in their carbon emissions.


Working on the same principle as the sun, Schwank’s gas fired radiant heaters emit infrared waves that are converted into heat when they reach people and objects in the vicinity. This means that the air is not heated directly and heat is only applied where it is needed. Both environmental impact and heating costs are minimised through markedly reduced energy consumption when compared with conventional heating systems.


Both gas fired and electric infrared heaters can be found at sports venues and both gas fired and electric patio heaters are widely used for outdoor hospitality areas. Each alternative can provide efficient heating solutions, but gas proves a cheaper energy source per KWh and is less vulnerable to power failures. At a time when energy markets can be volatile, it can also be unwise to place too much reliability on one source for both heat and lighting.


Keeping sports fans happy

Stadium management needs to be very conscious of the comfort of those attending sporting events, from VIPs to the mass of spectators. Accurate temperature setting and large space heating control has a direct effect on the atmosphere generated within a stadium and discomfort can create tensions between supporters and spoil the enjoyment of the game or sporting event for everyone.


Infrared outdoor heating solutions have continually proved themselves ideal for heating football and other sports stadiums. For example. a number of top level football clubs operating in differing climatic conditions have found that Schwank gas fired radiant heaters have fully satisfied their demands for quality, reliability and energy efficiency. These include Real Madrid, Feyenoord Rotterdam, Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge and Fenerbahçe Istanbul.


Schwank’s stadium systems can be designed to provide multipurpose flexible heating for the venue’s entire area or for specific zones, such as cutting off a concert stage, confining heating to spectator seating or targeting specific VIP areas. This flexibility is invaluable in providing the most cost effective means of heating large areas or selected locations as and when needed.


Our SportSchwank gas fired infrared radiant heaters can be hung from stadium roof beams or catwalks for easy installation and maintenance. High performance heat generation is supported by robust windshield protection against regular turbulences that occur beneath stadium roofs. In all, they provide exceptionally efficient heating solutions for sporting venues.


Providing warm hospitality

The hospitality sector has been able to capitalise on outside areas because of increasingly efficient methods of outdoor patio heating. Restaurant, pub and cafe owners can add to their number of covers and offer their customers pleasurable alfresco facilities extending way beyond the summer months. Outdoor heating solutions can transform the economic performance of their property.


Schwank’s gas fired infrared radiant heaters are a particularly attractive option for outdoor heating, creating consistent, reliable and comfortable temperatures throughout patio areas. As many hospitality venues will already use gas for catering requirements, these will be easy to integrate into existing operations, proving more attractive for saving on energy costs than electric patio heaters.


Unlike conventional mushroom patio heaters, terrasSchwank wall-mounted gas fired heaters are not intrusive and do not take up valuable terrace space, so the potential for more covers and open areas is created. They are also easy to install and require minimum maintenance.
