Radiant Heating
Working in the same way as the sun, radiant
heat warms all solid objects and surfaces in
its path through electromagnetic waves.
Being mounted overhead, AmbiRad radiant
heaters produce infrared heat that is directed
downwards to low level by a reflector.
Radiant heat:
• Is emitted by a hot surface
• Travels in straight lines

efficiency to a new level
AmbiRad develops and manufactures high
quality, environmentally friendly, energy and
cost-efficient heating systems, operating on
either natural or LP gas. All products are
certified to ISO 9001:2000 accreditation,

Reduced Environmental
Universal Application
The flexibility of design provided by
AmbiRad products ensures their suitability
and competitiveness in wide ranging
applications, from traditional environments
such as large, high bay, high air change
industrial and commercial buildings, together
with smaller scale facilities such as auto
service bays and workshops.
AmbiRad radiant heating is among the
most environmentally friendly heating
solutions on the market, greatly assisting
industry and commerce in improving their
overall energy performance and making
a significant contribution to achieving
compliance with the LEED (Leadership in
Energy and Environmental Design) green
building rating system, which encourages
the adoption of green building practices.

Radiant heat achieves this because it:
• Supplies heat to occupied levels
• Heats the ‘work zone’ not the ceiling
• Reduces transfer of heat from the
building envelope
• Speeds recovery when using open doors
• Delivers savings of 30% - 70%
• Often significant electrical savings
• Lowers maintenance and service
contract costs
• Can be zone controlled
• Lowest Nox emissions

VS Range - Herringbone
Renowned for its pioneering track record,
AmbiRad, a leading supplier of radiant tube
heating systems, has yet again raised the
industry standard in terms of innovation and
technical performance.
• Peak flame temperatures are reduced,
Herringbone systems are specifically designed
to suit individual building requirements; they
can incorporate up to ten U tube or linear
heaters on one exhaust manifold. The
exhaust manifold may be terminated through
the roof or wall.
The new range of high efficiency Vision
radiant tube heaters delivers exceptional
performance in terms of efficiency and the
potential to reduce energy costs.
The cornerstone of this exciting new
development has been the introduction
of a new high efficiency advanced burner.
resulting in 40% reduction in NOx levels
(55ppm on certain models)
• Virtually no combustion noise – 15dB(A)
lower than typical standard tube heaters
at 47dB(A)
• New slim-line burner head provides a long
evenly distributed flame that is 4 to 5 times
longer than standard tube heaters
• All units require minimal maintenance
The particular benefits of herringbone
systems are:
• U-tube, straight or double straight
models may be arranged in virtually
any configuration
• Optimized energy efficiencies
• All units share a common internal vent
thereby raising efficiency within the building
• Common exhaust fan for 2-10 heaters
• Aluminum or porcelain corrosion
resistant manifold
• Minimum vent penetration
• Zone control flexibility

Features & Benefits
ARC is a gas fired continuous radiant tube
heating system, designed specially for the
building it is required to heat.
• In-line fuel efficient burners (inputs
between 41,000 - 157,000 Btu/h)
• Common vacuum fan operation
The ARC system is designed to provide
uniform heat coverage over the entire floor
area. Alternatively, the system can also cater
for distinct zones providing a varied degree of
comfort levels within the overall layout of the
• Up to 92% combustion efficiency
• Modulation option available
• Rapid heat-up times
• Low running costs. Savings of up to 70%
of fuel costs can be achieved
The ARC Series continuous radiant tube
burner range includes six natural gas or
3 propane burner models from 41,000 to
157,000 Btu/h.
• Good aesthetic integration with building
• Minimal vent penetrations – single vent
system. Up to 1,500,000 Btu/h per single
• Capable of running five burners in one
radiant branch
• Widest range of burner inputs for any
continuous system
• Uniform distribution of heat
• Mild steel, stainless steel or porcelain tail
pipes available
Air hangars
Fully modulating available
Fully modulating ARC system
The standard ARC radiant heating system
operates with on/off control. As an option it
is now possible to control the ARC system
using modulation. Any heating system
utilizing on/off control uses the maximum
capacity of the heating system to heat the
building at all times, even when only a
small proportion of the system capacity is
required to maintain temperature. This can
result in building temperature ‘overshoot’,
lower comfort conditions and higher fuel
usage with frequent burner cycling. Utilizing
modulation control with burner outputs
varying between 60% - 100% of the
maximum burner rating will reduce heater
cycling, maintain tight temperature control
and give improved comfort and lower
heating bills.
• Zone control
• Simplified wiring
• Lower costs
• Improved reliability
AmbiRad has introduced SmartCom, the
intelligent energy management controller, in
order to satisfy the growing need for higher
efficiencies and to complement the
development of efficient heating systems.
Simple to program and operate, SmartCom
provides cost-effective energy management
for small single heater installations through to
large multi-zone applications requiring
centralized control.
