The Campingaz IR5000 Radiant Portable Gas Heater is an infrared heater that predominantly uses radiation; very hot heating panels generating very powerful heat radiation. Infrared heaters can be easily recognised by the fine-pored ceramic plates that turn to an intense red colour when glowing. The heat is generated by a gas burner that burns the gas oxygen mix inside the ceramic plates at a temperature of around 900°C. Campingaz IR5000 Radiant Portable Gas Heater’s heat is perceived stronger and more direct, particularly when you are positioned in front of the heater. On top of that, it is easily recognisable if an Infrared Heater is switched on as the heat is visible to the human eye thanks to the red, glowing ceramic panels.
