Harsh Environment Infrared Heaters

Within the Roberts Gordon infrared family, Vantage® HE this is the only heater with approval for outdoor installation within harsh environments. Harsh environments can vary from covered outdoor patios spaces to outdoor apartment vestibule areas and even car washes. Installing infrared heaters outside helps to extend the life of outdoor spaces for restaurants and businesses.

Standard features such as stainless steel type 304 reflectors and end caps allow for minimal rust buildup in atmospheres with higher humidity levels. On each end of the heater, both the blower inlet and exhaust flue, type B vent cap protects from wind, rain and other outdoor elements. With additional supports installed for tubing and reflectors, infrared heaters are able to withstand winds up to 40 miles per hour.
