Short-wave heater works in all weathers

A RAIN-PROOFED heater provides an all-weather solution to the problems of heating external areas and leaky farm buildings.

The Quartzray Vector RP heater, from Rochdale-based FGS, uses short-wave heating technology to warm people and objects; it does not directly heat the air. FGS says the heater is highly controllable and gives almost 100% heat output within one second, making it suitable for use in farmyards where use is intermittent and space is not enclosed.

The 1.5kW Vector RP heater (rain-proof) is priced from £137 (01706-38271).
