The Ecostrad Thermostrip is an excellent choice for a variety of public and commercial environments, providing gentle infrared heat that’s suitable for all-day use. Featuring three heater modes, a timer function, and a sleek matt black exterior, the Thermostrip offers modern, energy-efficient heating.
Our Thermostrip heaters produce no light and offer a mellow heat that’s better suited to use over long periods. Instead of a bulb, these heaters use a stretch of wire filament to produce far infrared, a gentler type of radiant heat that mimics the warmth of the human body. This makes the Thermostrip excellent for sheltered outdoor spaces where people may be sat for long periods of time. There’s no distracting light and no overbearing heat, just a constant source of pleasant warmth to keep you comfortable throughout the day.
This infrared patio heater has a 1800w output which can be adjusted using the remote control provided. The remote allows you to select between three heat levels so you can save energy on warmer days when full heat isn’t needed. If you’re unsure which setting you’re currently using, the Thermostrip comes with a convenient LED display to show which mode is selected. In addition to its adjustable output, the Thermostrip also has a timer function so you can set your heater to run for a restricted period of time, after which it will automatically switch off. The timer can be set in hour increments, with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 9 hours. It’s a handy feature to help you keep track of energy usage but also ensures that the heater is never left on by accident.
The Ecostrad Thermostrip comes with a robust IP65 protection rating so you can install it outside with confidence. This version of the Thermostrip can heat a maximum area of 10m² indoors or up to 6.5m² in a sheltered outdoor environment. Whether you’re heating a hotel veranda or a chilly church interior, the Thermostrip will provide reliable and comfortable warmth from a sleek, unobtrusive housing.
Ecostrad Thermostrip patio heaters come with a 1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty and can be used alongside other Thermostrip heaters for thorough coverage over large areas.
The brackets provided with the Ecostrad Thermostrip give you the option of wall or ceiling mounting the heater as you see fit. Hardwired outdoor heaters must always be installed by a professional electrician, however, this is usually a quick and easy process with no lengthy callouts required.
Providing unparalleled comfort and easy control, the Thermostrip is a versatile heating solution for domestic and commercial spaces. Ecostrad offer a diverse range of outdoor heaters so take a look at the rest of our selection for further inspiration.
How does infrared heating work?
Most heating products work by using either convection or radiation. Products like panel heaters or fan heaters provide warmth in the form of a cycle of warm air rising and falling, but as you might imagine, this type of heat doesn’t work well in outdoor applications where warm air quickly dissipates to cooler areas.
Radiant heat doesn’t have this issue – it works by travelling through the air in a wave, directly warming people and objects that it comes into contact with. This makes infrared heaters particularly effective for hard-to-heat interiors or open outdoor spaces as they will always project heat to where it’s needed. The type of heat they provide is just like the warmth felt from the sun’s rays and can make your outdoor seating areas a comfortable haven even if the ambient air temperature is less than ideal.

For permanent fitting outside, the Ecostrad Thermostrip must be installed by a professional electrician as it will need to be hardwired to the mains of your property. This is not a DIY task and should always be left to an expert. If wall mounted, the Thermostrip should always be horizontal with its control panel orientated on the left-hand side. The front face of the heater reaches high temperatures and, in all instances, should never be installed where there is risk of physical contact.
The Thermostrip’s wall brackets are designed so that they can also be used to ceiling mount the heater. Please see the Ecostrad Thermostrip manual for further information. Always ensure that the correct clearance distances are observed: the Thermostrip must be installed no lower than 2.1m from the floor and at least 50cm away from the ceiling and any adjacent walls.
Indoors, the Thermostrip is capable of heating an area up to 10m², however this can be reduced to a minimum of 4.5m² in an outdoor location. For areas exposed to strong gusts and breezes, a low glare infrared heater may be the better option.
Infrared is not affected by air movement however its effects can be offset by gusts and breezes. This is because wind-chill cools down the body quickly and your skin will not be able to absorb infrared fast enough to compensate for this sensation. With this in mind, please ensure that you choose a suitable location for your heater.
The Ecostrad Thermostrip comes with an IP65 protection rating which means that it is dust-tight and resistant to low pressure jets of water. This rating is more than suitable enough for permanent installation outside in most cases, however, for particularly exposed locations, you may require a product with a higher protection rating.
