The reason for Panelbloc's success through the
years? - "Heaters that warm like the sun."Panelbloc's infrared waves heat and
warm individuals, machines in the shop and the floor, not the air. Working like the sun,
when individuals, surrounding objects, and the floor are warmed, heat radiates all around
and there is a general feeling of warm comfort, not the on and off cold and hot feeling
when just the air is warmed. Also, drafts do not affect the low intensity waves from the
Another advantage of the Panelbloc heater is its Standing Pilot design which
continues to heat even when power goes out. This design requires no electricity because
there are no fans, motors or moving parts, which also makes this a popular energy saving
design. Panelbloc currently manufactures two heater designs, two sizes and 12 models
available in each size, making the heaters exceptional for many types of applications.
Installations include industrial plants, steel works, warehouses, airport hangars, garages
and automotive shops.
Panelbloc heaters are known for their excellent quality, low maintenance, and
for providing many years of heating service. Because of their excellence and longevity,
the heaters have not changed much over the years and the current models are very similar
to the original models. In fact, replacement heaters are completely interchangeable and
require very little, if any, modification from the original installation.
