How are ERS infrared heaters constructed?

The 3 basic premises of ERS infrared heating:

Efficient, durable and maintenance-free!


The key benefit of all ERS Heatscreen infrared heaters is the guarantee of maximum efficiency. The core temperature of the panel equals the radiation temperature, so there is no heat transmission loss. The panels are manufactured almost exclusively using natural materials, most of which come from Austria. A maximum of radiant heat is emitted due the screens being modelled on the highly efficient tiles of a Danish-style stove. The material mix of glass and ceramics has proven itself for centuries on such tiled stoves. That’s why this composite material was chosen as the basis for ERS infrared heaters.

Molecular Fused Layer Technology

In technological terms, we belong to a very special stratum

The secret of ERS' success, and prerequisite for the efficacy of our heating technology, is the special layer technology we use. At a temperature of several thousand degrees, a tissue-paper-thin heating layer is fused with an infrared-permeable toughened safety-glass pane. The process is conducted by an ultra-precise fully-automatic plasma robot. The permanent and inseparable bond radiates heat straight from the heating layer into the room – without loss.

What distinguishes ERS Heatscreens from other infrared heaters?

Why ERS infrared heating? ERS’ patented layer technology, and the fact it’s made in Austria! ERS Heatscreens consist of 4 layers: A ceramic layer, heating layer, another ceramic layer and a protective layer. These 4 layers are fused with toughened glass pane at several 1000 degrees, the fusion ensuring infrared heat is radiated directly from the heating layer out into the room and back into the masonry without transmission loss.

Correct positioning is crucial!

When installing, a wall should be chosen from which the infrared heater can radiate freely into the room – if possible, close to the floor in the lower to middle third of the room. Panels can be mounted horizontally or vertically, depending on the space available, and on their appearance and design. The minimum recommended distance to solid furniture is 1 to 2 metres. Regardless of whether the walls are internal or have an external face wall, the radiant heat reaches every corner of the room in a short time. Do not position panels opposite large glass surfaces, such those as found in a conservatory, since heat radiation is absorbed less efficiently by glass than by wooden or brick walling.

ERS Heatscreen concept and technology

Heizpaneel von ERS - Trägermaterial aus Glas und Keramik

Carrier material made of glass and ceramics

The material composite made of a specially-developed combination of glass and ceramics, similar to that used for Danish tiled stoves, has proven very successful.

ERS Heatscreen - Keine Übertragungsverluste, die Kerntemperatur ist auch die Oberflächentemperatur

Core temperature = surface temperature

All heating layers are fused together. There is no transmission loss. The temperature of the heatscreen is also radiated directly into the room.

ERS Heizpaneel - Keine Übertragungsverluste durch eigens entwickelten Plasmabeschichtungsverfahren

No transmission loss

The specially developed plasma coating process allows for the molecular fusing of a layer of composite material with the glass.

Optimale Betriebstemperatur von ca. 90 bis 100 °C

Optimum operating temperature of approx. 90 to 100°C

A large proportion of the radiant heat is emitted directly into the room at between 90°C to 100°C.

ERS Infrarot Heizstrahler - Höchste Leistung auf kleiner Fläche

Ultra-high performance in a minimal space

The ERS Heatscreen is available in 4 sizes, and chosen according to room size. The heating layer radiates extremely efficiently in a small area, so it’s good to know the heating layer only needs to work to 1% of its overall capacity.

ERS Heatscreen ist nur 7 mm dünn

Thin, light and extremely effective

An ERS Heatscreen is only 5-7mm thick, so it can heat up very rapidly and emit heat immediately.

Extremely short heat-up period

An ERS infrared heater takes a maximum of 10 minutes to reach maximum effect, so rooms become comfortably warm very quickly.

ERS Infrarotheizkörper - die Wärme wird gleichmäßig verteilt

Even heat distribution

The heat is evenly distributed across the ERS Heatscreen and radiates directly into the room from the entire surface.

ERS Infrarot Heizstrahler gibt die Strahlung nach vorne und hinten ab

Heat radiates to the front and to the rear

This unique heating system is made in Austria and radiates both to the front and to the rear, so walls also heat up and store warmth.

100% made in Austria with an 8-year warranty

The absence of additional electronic components and other parts means there’s no wear and tear. The working life of an ERS infrared heater is long, so we provide an 8-year guarantee.

100% plastic-free

No plastics and no flammable materials are incorporated.

Cheaper than conventional electric heating

Conventional heating with electricity is far more expensive than infrared heaters. Conventional heaters first heat up the air in the room. Radiation loss also occurs due to outdated technologies like heating wires, mats and fibres. Infrared radiation heats all objects, individuals, walls and thus all contents of a building. The effect on the masonry is harmless and sustainable, and reduces electricity consumption.

Masonry is dry at all times

Infrared radiation emitted out back into the walls constantly warms and dries the masonry, maximising its insulation capacity. Dry walls are ideal insulators, and dry masonry protects a building’s superstructure from mould. Regardless of the building material, the drier the walls – the more effectively they insulate and the greater the savings on energy.

3 rules for 100% efficiency

1. Unobscured positioning on the wall

ERS Heatscreens should not be mounted directly behind furniture or curtains. Heat must be able to radiate freely into the room. Whether you mount horizontally or vertically is a matter of aesthetics. The only place the panel must not be mounted is on the ceiling. The ERS Heatscreen with its patented layering technology was specially developed and manufactured to be mounted on walls.

2. In the lower to middle third of the room

It makes most sense to mount an ERS Heatscreen in the lower third of the room, at a maximum of shoulder height, in order to make optimum use of the radiation.

3. No glass opposite

Wooden and brick walls absorb and pass on infrared radiation much better than glass. For this reason, care should be taken during installation to ensure there are no large glass facades or conservatory-like structures in direct proximity.
