Take it outside

Why put your outdoor area into hibernation for half the year? Heatstrip outdoor heaters allow you to use your patio or deck well beyond summer, even when evenings become chilly. Heatstrip offers a wide variety of heating solutions, from gas-fuelled to electric, and with warming abilities ranging from a gentle glow to a high intensity heat.

Radiant heaters

Heatstrip’s electric heat strip heaters are designed to be installed above an outdoor table or seating area, directing radiant heat down onto these specific areas, rather than trying to heat a large space. Compared to a standard gas patio heater, Heatstrip heaters are efficient, with much lower running costs – and you never have to worry about running out of gas. They also do a great job of warming more people: a medium- or large-size heater placed directly over a four- or six-seater table will do the job, and with a far more even distribution of heat than a gas patio heater.

There are a variety of Heatstrip options to choose from, suiting most areas and styles.

Heatstrip Classic: With a slimline shape and sleek black façade, the original Heatstrip Classic blends elegantly into any décor. It is suitable for many undercover alfresco areas and it is also one of the most energy efficient heaters available in Australia.

Heatstrip Elegance: Sleek and white, the Heatstrip Elegance is designed to blend seamlessly with most ceilings in alfresco areas. It’s available in three sizes and types – 1800W, 2400W and 3600W – so there’s one to suit most spaces.

Heatstrip Max: When you need high-intensity heat for difficult-to-heat zones (like an open or exposed patio or an area with high ceilings, for example) Heatstrip Max provides effective and energy efficient comfort. The dual-element design allows for maximum efficiency within a compact unit, and emits a low, unobtrusive glow.

Tip: Some Heatstrip models are suitable for D.I.Y. installation, while others must be installed by a licensed electrician. Check the manufacturer’s instructions.

Outdoor gas heaters

If gas is your fuel of choice, the sleek, black Heatstrip wall-mounted heater connects to mains natural gas and is suitable for outdoor undercover areas. It has a four-tile, commercial-quality ceramic burner, which provides a high heat output of 34 megajoules. Designed with simplified installation and flexibility in mind, it has a battery ignition and requires only a gas fitter, which minimises installation costs. The wall-mounting bracket allows for multiple mounting angles, and the reflector design ensures that only a minimum of 500mm overhead clearance is required.

Portable gas heaters

When flexibility is a priority, the Heatstrip portable LPG outdoor heater is the ideal solution. The sturdy stand of this outdoor patio heater is a stylish, modern design that keeps the gas bottle, pipes and connections well hidden. Its discreetly placed wheels make it easy to move around, so you can direct heat to the areas where it’s most needed, easily putting it away when you’re done. It provides heat for a lower cost than standard gas patio heaters – 25 percent less on a high output setting and 80 percent on a low setting.

The Heatstrip portable LPG outdoor heater is easy to operate, with a high/low output control and an integrated Piezo ignition with tilt safety switch and flame failure device included.
