Infrared Heating for Restaurant Patios, Bars, and Cafes

Maximize your restaurant’s outdoor space by providing warmth for your patrons even when temperatures have dropped. Space-Ray’s Wind Blocker and Cold Blocker Series accomplishes this through the use of gas-fired infrared heat. It works by first warming the floor level, and then the tables, and finally the air above. This creates a more uniform heat starting at the level where your customers are sitting, which provides a more comfortable experience.

The Best Alternative To Mushroom Style Heaters

restaurant outdoor heating

Space-Ray’s compact-sized, energy efficient, infrared gas tube heater is designed for use in indoor restaurant facilities and outdoor patio spaces. Its compact size (only 9 feet 3 inches in overall length) allows placement in those small, hard to heat areas where longer infrared tube heaters could not previously be used.

The Cold Blocker offers 3 distinct advantages over round, freestanding mushroom style patio heaters. First, it’s not affected by windy conditions. The flame is totally enclosed inside the emitter tube and not affected by atmospheric or environmental conditions. Second, 20 lb. LP gas tanks are eliminated – restaurant staff can focus on serving customers rather than routinely replacing empty LP tanks. Finally, in most cases a Cold Blocker system owner can reduce heating cost as much as 75% when connected to natural gas system, 50% when connected to an LP system.

The new Space-Ray Wind Blocker Tinted Ceramic Glass Series patio heaters are the perfect solution to extend the outdoor season by providing the warmth of radiant heat. Perfect for other outdoor environments like outdoor patios, bars, and smoking areas.

When the weather turns cool, Space-Ray heaters make it possible to use more of your available space.
