Why Solaira - State-of-the-art engineered systems, automation and controls from a company focused solely on technical radiant heating solutions.
Through extended investment in technology and continuous improvement, Solaira's engineering focus is on developing architectural, efficient radiant heating and control solutions.
High Performance, High Efficiency Radiant Heat
Solaira S-Wave high intensity, filtered light radiant heaters behave like sunshine, providing warmth you can feel instantly. For example, during cloudy days, you feel cold while the sun is hidden, when the clouds break and the sun suddenly appears, you immediately feel the warmth. The air temperature did not change, what you are experiencing is shortwave infrared heat produced by the sun. Experience Solaira and feel the difference our heaters generate compared to the competition.
Comfortable Radiant Heat and the Halogen Cycle
Solaira S-Wave, filtered, low glare quartz halogen emitters lamps consist of a tungsten filament heated by the passage of an electric current to a temperature of 2400º Kelvin (3800°F). At this temperature, most of the output (emission) is in the short wave infra-red band (1.2 microns) providing low glare, directional, radiant heat. As with all tungsten filament lamps, the tungsten will evaporate in time and deposit itself on the wall of the lamp. To prevent this undesirable effect a small amount of halogen gas is added to the envelope of the emitter lamp and hence a process of re-composition takes place as the tungsten evaporates it will combine with the halogen gas to form tungsten halide and so prevent the tungsten being deposited on the wall of the lamp. The tungsten halide will recombine with the filament releasing the halogen and re-depositing the tungsten on the filament. This process is a continuous one and is known as the halogen cycle giving our Solaira Emitters an estimate 5000 hr life with performance.
