    The 1.8kW version of the Thermostrip can be installed DIY, however, the largest 3.2kW version must always be hardwired to the mains. For a hardwired fitting, the Ecostrad Thermostrip must be installed by a professional electrician. 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 product manuals 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.

    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 and avoid placing it near areas with frequent air movement, e.g. next to roller shutters, bay doors, etc. This heater is not recommended for outdoor use unless it is installed in a very well-sheltered area.

    The Ecostrad Thermostrip comes with an IP65 protection rating which means that it is dust-tight and resistant to low pressure jets of water.

The Ecostrad Thermostrip is a sophisticated infrared heater that’s ideal for use in lofty interiors. Styled in matt black, this glare-free heater provides discreet all-day heating for domestic, commercial or public environments. 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. There’s no distracting light and no overbearing heat, just a constant source of pleasant warmth to keep you comfortable throughout the day.


The Thermostrip can be used manually using the simple on/off button at the side of the heater, however, they are designed to be wired up to digital thermostats for precision temperature control. Ecostrad Thermostrip heaters can provide effective heating for lofty interiors that are hard to heat using traditional means, such as churches, village halls and barn conversions. This heater is not recommended for outdoor use unless it is installed in a very well-sheltered area.

The brackets provided with the Ecostrad Thermostrip give you the option of wall or ceiling mounting the heater as you see fit. When plugged into a socket with a suitable IP rating, the Thermostrip is compatible with DIY installation. Hardwiring outdoor heaters must always be installed by a professional electrician, however, this is usually a quick and easy process with no lengthy callouts required.

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 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.
