Is there anything worse than dining at a fine restaurant than having your food served too cold? Nope! But the second worst restaurant experience is just being too cold yourself!
We have all been there … seated a little too close to the window and we just can’t escape the chill! The restaurant knows there is a problem, so they install a baseboard heater under the window and turn it on high. Your meal is a little more enjoyable, at least until you get home and realize you have third degree burns on your legs!
It doesn’t need to be this way! You can enjoy your meal in warmth and comfort while the restaurant owner enjoys energy savings with our Architectural Series Electric Radiant Heating System.
Check out just a few of our successful restaurant heating projects … and make sure you tell your favorite restaurateur about us too!
Restaurant – Montreal, Quebec Canada
Challenges: Ever sat in a restaurant near a window in the winter and find that you leg is hotter than the food? This is what happens when restaurants use electric baseboards to keep their clients “comfortable and warm.”
Result: The goal was to avoid the “hot leg syndrome” by installing 2×4 electric radiant heating panels in the suspended ceiling system as close to the glass walls as possible. The clients didn’t complain of hot electric baseboard heat and they found sitting next to the windows more comfortable because the glass was now warmer. These seats were now much more comfortable and inviting to sit in.
Frozen Food Display Area – Lebanon
Challenges: This section of the grocery store was deemed cold by the shoppers. Management had received complaints from customers who deemed this section of the grocery store as cold and uncomfortable. The trick was to install additional heat at a minimum of cost and disruption while not thawing the food.
Result: The radiant ceiling panels were chain hung from the ceiling over the aisle, not too close to the food. There was some experimentation as to how high to install the heaters for maximum effect.
Cafeteria – Amherst, Nova Scotia
Result: 2×4 electric radiant heating panels were installed by the glass in a standard suspended ceiling system. The radiant panels warm the glass thereby reducing the chill effect normally experienced by anyone sitting there. Maximizing the floor space was also a bonus. As a note, we don’t take any responsibility for “heated” boardroom discussions.
