About Us
AUGUST 1990 – Father and son,
Rod and Russell Davis, invented the
Econo-Heat Wall Panel Heater
and started business in Cape Town,.
South Africa.
A WORLD LEADER IN ENERGY
1997 – The Econo-Heat Wall
Panel Heater won the ‘Most
Innovative Product’ award for the
DESIGN FOR LIVING EXHIBITION
– Cape Town’s premier consumer
lifestyles exhibition. The product
slowly started selling through some
of South Africa’s best-known stores. 4
1990 to 2003 – Production began
with an initial capacity of 50 units per
day. Over fourteen years the Davis
family built Econo-Heat in South
Africa into an exciting business with
a well recognised and trusted brand
and in the process moved to three
factories over this period.

2004 – The business changed
hands with Pieter Bräsler as its new
managing director. With a greater
marketing drive and a focus on
extending the company’s product
into international markets, the
company experienced substantial
growth in recent years. The new
Econo-Heat full-colour packaging
box won the flexographic ‘Box of the
Year’ award in 2005.
The Econo-Heat factory has
since 2004 successfully introduced
the Principles and Practices of Lean
Manufacturing to reduce waste
and costs, optimise productivity
and meet the growing international
demand for its products.
2009 – Today the factory produces
1200 to 1600 units per day
and employs 119 people. The.
Econo-Heat Wall Panel Heater
sells in 38 countries worldwide. To further expand its production
capacity, Econo-Heat is moving
to a new factory in Wetton, Cape
Town in early 2010. This will enable
Econo-Heat to ultimately produce
up to 5000 units per day or 1.2 million
units per year. PA N E

WALL PANEL HEATER
The original low cost energy-saver wall
panel heater. Save up to 50% or more
on your heating costs. Slim, discreet
and compact design. Easy to install.
Safer for children and pets.
Econo-Heat eHeater™ wall panel heaters offer out-of-the-way wall mounting and are an
economic way of providing efficient room heating at a low cost. Using convection technology,
heat is mainly generated behind the heater in the space between the panel and the wall,
which leads to an efficient up draught of heat circulated into the room. This principle of
convection means that about 90% of the heat comes from the back of the panel, while only
10% is radiated from the front of the panel. This form of “background” heating is not only
very economic, but also safe and efficient.
THE ORIGINAL WALL PANEL HEATER
16
Your Econo-Heat eHeater™ wall panel heater is designed
as an alternative to conventional bar heaters and other forms
of high output heaters that use large amounts of electricity.
It operates at relatively low surface temperatures (75 -–
90°Celsius, dependant on the ambient temperature), and
uses minimal electricity.
There are numerous advantages to using Econo-Heat eHeater™ wall panel heaters. They save on floor space, are safe
to use around children and pets, operate at the same
electricity cost of just four incandescent light bulbs
and can be painted to match any décor with
PVA or emulsion type paint (do not use oil
based paint). Econo-Heat eHeater™
wall panel heaters are designed to be
left on for long periods of time, giving
you comfortable background heat at
a low cost. This is similar in concept
to a central heating system - yet far
less expensive.
Features
• Inexpensive to acquire, inexpensive to run
• Whole room heater as opposed to locality heaters
• Energy saving – save up to 50% or more on your heating costs
• Efficiently warms a room of approximately 12m2 (9m2 in very cold climates)
• Uses efficient convection technology
• Non-flammable. Non-combustible
• No drying of the air. No oxygen burnt up
• Asbestos free. Contains no harmful chemicals or metals
• Safer for children and pets – no exposed elements, gas or fans
• Ultra slim and compact design. Out-of-the-way wall mounting
• Quick and easy to install with the patented Econo-Kit
• Can be painted to suit décor
• SABS and international safety standards approved
• Two year warranty
Econo-Heat eHeater™ wall panel
heaters are International Safety
Standards approved and have a twoyear warranty provided they are used
correctly.

Easy to install
Econo-Heat eHeater™ wall panel heaters are
quick and easy to install with the patented EconoKit. Together with the kit comes an easy-to-use
mounting template: The polystyrene packing that
protects the wall panel heater inside its box has
four holes that correspond with the mounting holes
of the heater. Use these holes as a template and a
spirit level to effortlessly mark the position of the
four holes on the wall.

Product safety
ECONO-HEAT eHeater™ panels are constructed from
asbestos-free fibre-cement board with element wire
laminated between the two boards. A 2 metre length
cable is joined to the element wire in a custom-designed housing in one corner:
• Low front surface temperature
• Safer for children and pets.
• No exposed element wires, gas or fans.
• No drying of the air.
How it works
Econo-Heat eHeater™ wall panel heaters
work on the principle of natural convection,
which means that heat is mainly generated
behind the heater in the space between
the panel and the wall, which leads to an
efficient up-draught of heat circulated into
the room (the heated air comes out from
behind the heater at the speed of 0,7 metres.
per second!).

About 90% of the heat in the room comes
from the back of the panel, while only 10%
is radiated from the front. Convection heating
(room heater) is far more effective than radiated
heating (locality heater).

eCare™ low voltage
electric blanket
operates on less than
24 Volt, which means it
is totally safe and shock
proof, making it very
different from most other
electric blankets on the
market. The patented low
voltage technology eliminates
harmful electromagnetic
radiation, making the eCare™
blanket a far healthier option. .
A further unique advantage is .
that it is machine washable!

How can that be effective? Econo-Heat’s low voltage technology
ensures that sufficient heat is generated by the blanket to create a natural
temperature environment.
Is it safe for children and the elderly? Yes! Being low voltage means that
the blanket is shock-proof, even if it becomes wet.
