Gas-fired plaque heaters
The Illustrated Guide to Mechanical Building Services, Third Edition (BG 31/2017), by David Bleicher, published by BSRIA in 2017, states in relation to gas-fired plaque heaters: ‘Gas is combusted in a series of ceramic plaques mounted in a metallic reflector. Radiant heat is directed into the occupied space below. The maximum mounting height is approximately 10 m, which is lower than the gas-fired radiant tube system. The products of combustion pass directly into the building with this type of heater.’
