Truck Service Area Applications

When it comes to heating Truck Service buildings, Space-Ray has the right heating solution for those open, hard-to heat Truck Service Shops. Based on your ceiling height and door locations, Space-Ray Representatives can design a customized infrared heating system for your Truck Service Shops. Strategically located tube heaters between the bays can keep the trucks, tools and equipment warm. The floor will act as a giant radiator and provide a comfortable work environment for the mechanics when the bay doors are opened to bring in the trucks into the building.  The heating system can be zoned utilizing night setback thermostat system.

When locating the infrared heaters, care should be taken to observe the listed clearance to combustibles. Typically, lower input heaters (40,000 to 175,000 Btu/hr.) located between the bay doors (and never locate it above the trucks). 

Space-Ray radiant tube heaters are ideal for retrofitting forced air heating systems to energy efficient infrared heating at Truck Service shops. Some Space-Ray customers report savings of up to 50% (6,000 sq. ft. fire station previously heated with forced air unit heaters).

Ask your Space-Ray Sales Representative about our exclusive COMPUHEAT Analysis Program to evaluate your building’s heating needs.
