Forced Red Series – Press Release


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Space-Ray Infrared Heaters will present the new ForceRED series at the 2019 AHR Expo®, in Atlanta, GA Booth # B2917, January 14-16, 2019. The new ForceRED series series will set a new standard for extra high efficient infrared heaters and will be 30% more efficient than typical infrared heater. The ForceRED Series will be available in U-tube configuration (NXU Series) as well as straight configuration (NXS Series). The new series will be available on both natural and propane gas with inputs from 50,000 to 200,000 Btu/Hr and with fixed emitter lengths based on model selected.

The ForceRED Series will be ideal for high bay applications (e.g. aircraft hangars, military buildings, warehouses, distribution centers, car dealerships) where the higher efficiency tube heaters are preferred over the typical infrared heaters available in the market place. The ForceRED Series pushes radiant energy delivery to the next level offering 30% more Radiant Output and 30% more fuel efficiency compared to other typical tube heaters. The ForceRED Series delivers more radiant energy to the floor level thus helping maintain thermal mass in the floor which offers a quicker recovery when the doors are opened and closed frequently.


The first U.S. manufacturer to design unitized tube heaters, Space-Ray is celebrating over 70 years of field experience and exposure to industrial and commercial heating problems. Founded in 1949, “Space-Ray has one of the broadest and most complete infrared product lines in the industrial heating market with radiant efficiencies unsurpassed by competitive systems,” noted Bob Genisol, Vice President of Space-Ray Infrared Heaters. “All model heaters manufactured by Space-Ray are CSA-Certified, and our broad capabilities enhance our ability to custom design a radiant heating system that meets precise facility requirements for optimum flexibility, economy and maximum radiant energy distribution.”
