Sustainable energy for caterign and hotel industry.

Infra-red panels are a good alternative for heating.
Because there is no air circulation with infra-red heating, not heat loss occurs when a door opens. The warmth is focused on objects and persons in a room, instead of the it being focused on the air. In this way, infra-red heating results in both cost- and energy savings. The panels fit in a suspended ceiling, float on chains or direct on the ceiling. Due to the elegant shapes, the panels are a nice addition to the interior of your hotel, bar or restaurant.
More and more often solar panels, also called PV-panels, become visible on roofs. That is not weird considering the fact that energy costs are rising while solar panels provide free electricity. Over the last few years, solar panels have become much cheaper. Next to that, solar panels are not taxable for consumers. Because of this, you will earn back your investment within eight to ten years.

Why solar panels?
A solar panel, or PV-panel, turns energy into electricity. Solar panels depend on the amount of sunlight, the radiation intensity and the hours of sunshine. The sun in the Netherlands is perfect for generating electricity.
Threat your guests with infra-red heaters
Your guests will experience a pleasant, sunny day with infra-read heaters. The simple installation allows offers various applications. Heat your front desk, hotel rooms or the entire restaurant.

The infra-red panels can be controlled individually – if desired, through an app – to heat a certain room at a certain time. In this way, you just heat one  room instead of entire building. Costs can be saved by monitoring and controlling in the correct way. The cost savings can be increased by using infra-red panels in combination with solar panels. 

On top of that, the panels have a long life span and are maintenance free, which makes expensive services unnecessary.

In contrast to conventional heating, there is less to no air circulation taking place with infra-red heating. No unpleasant entrance anymore due to warm air finding its way outside. Heat up your entrance with infra-red and the warmth will be stored inside the floor and other objects.

The infra-red panels fit in a suspended ceiling, float on chains or direct on the ceiling. They are also available in several different versions which provide a solution for every different situation. On top of that, it is possible to personalize the infra-red panel with an image.
