Tansun's British Manufacturing Advantage: Ensuring Reliability in Infrared Heating

British manufacturing stands as a shining example of precision engineering, unmatched craftsmanship, and a rich tradition of expertise, quality, and innovation that sets it apart on a global scale. As the 9th largest manufacturing nation in the world, with an annual output of £183 billion, the United Kingdom's manufacturing sector continues to make its mark across industries. This impressive reputation is a testament to the unwavering commitment of British manufacturers to deliver exceptional products, driven by a relentless pursuit of excellence and a dedication to meeting the highest standards of reliability and performance.

In this article, we will delve into the pivotal role of British manufacturing and engineering in delivering high-quality, durable, and reliable infrared heating products.

The Pitfalls of Imitation Products

When it comes to infrared heating, choosing a dependable and resilient product is of utmost importance. Opting for imitation products can lead to various issues that compromise performance. Some key drawbacks include:

  • Inferior Quality Components:

Imitation products often employ substandard components that fail to meet the necessary quality standards. These low-quality components can significantly impact the overall durability and reliability of the heating system. For instance, many inferior quartz heaters have only one third of the output of a Tansun heaterby opting for low grade lighting reflector material just 0.2-0.4mm thick. An insufficient reflective coating only ends up absorbing heat, eventually closing up around the lamp and prematurely failing. In comparison, Tansun manufactures premium aluminium reflector material which is 0.8mm thick for consistent heat output over time. As a result, in most cases a Tansun 1kw heater will be more efficient than most 2kw imported heaters.

  • Lack of Quality Control:

Manufacturers of imitation products may not adhere to stringent quality control measures during the production process with limited oversight from outsourcing manufacturing operations overseas. This absence of rigorous checks can result in inconsistent performance, shorter product lifespan, and increased safety concerns. For instance, many inferior products on the market do not have a dedicated or appropriately shaped reflectors as part of cost saving measures or assembly missteps. This results in poor heat performance and burn outs, reducing the heater’s lifespan. Tansun uses high grade material and CAD technology on site which has helped us to design, manufacture and consistently produce a superior quality heater which is reliable and durable.

  • Limited Warranty and Support:

Imitation products generally offer limited warranty coverage and lack comprehensive customer support. This can lead to difficulties in obtaining timely assistance and finding resolutions for potential issues that may arise. Full test certification and a comprehensive warranty and support team ensure that the best infrared heaters can benefit from a ‘fit and forget’ reputation and ongoing superior performance. Tansun’s design, engineering and support teams leverage decades of industrial experience to ensure unrivalled reliability and reputation.

  • Lack of Customisation or Adaptability

Imitation products often come ‘as they are’, lacking the ability to be customised or tailored to specific building requirements. This limits the options available to some consumers and hampers their ability to find products which truly meet their heating requirements.

  • Unreliable Supply Chains

Imitation products sourced from overseas suppliers may have an unreliable or inconsistent supply chain. This can lead to delays in product availability, difficulties in meeting customer demands and extended lead times causing customer dissatisfaction.

How does British Manufacturing Bridge the Gaps?

Traceability, provenance and the power of knowing every product component gives British manufacturers a comprehensive manufacturing advantage. UK manufacturing businesses have the power to state that every product is a quality product – and mean it. This differs from ‘hand assembled in the UK companies’, who source inferior or mismatched components and simply assemble accordingly, still resulting in premature failings and unhappy customers.

With less distance to travel given that British manufacturers produce all goods in-house, quality is more assured and production to delivery time is often less than you’d expect. This means that customers can rely on exceptional products with a solid turnaround – leading to repeat, happy customers.

In addition, as well as better production transparency and excellent customer care, UK manufacturing companies adhere to clear environmental standards and a lower carbon footprint in comparison to imported counterpart products. Keeping all manufacturing work on British soil decreases the mileage each component travels before it enters the production line. For UK companies who are conscious about their carbon footprint and sustainability targets – choosing British is therefore a no brainer.

Tansun: A 40+ Year British Manufacturing Advantage

Built by Professionals, for Professionals

Tansun stands as a shining example of British manufacturing excellence in the realm of infrared heating. With over four decades of experience, we have established ourselves as a trusted industry leader known for our unwavering commitment to reliability, durability and exceptional performance. Since our beginning in 1982, we have consistently innovated leading to ground-breaking partnerships and inventions in partnership with manufacturing giants such as Phillips, General Electric, Osram and Toshiba right from the UK. We are the only infrared heating manufacturer that can proudly claim to manufacture all our products in the UK, ensuring unrivalled craftsmanship in every heater we offer.

Superior Component Manufacturing

We prioritise the quality and origin of every component used in our heaters, produced from the heart of the UK’s manufacturing belt in the West Midlands. Our rigorous quality control provide customers with peace of mind and confidence in their heating solution. We adhere to stringent quality control measures at every stage of manufacturing from raw material inspection to the final assembly. By utilising high-quality components and robust construction techniques, our British-manufactured heaters are engineered to withstand demanding environments and provide reliable heating performance year after year.

Unmatched Innovation

At the core of Tansun's success lies a relentless focus on innovation and ongoing research and development. With a dedicated team of experts, Tansun continuously pushes the boundaries of infrared heating technology to deliver cutting-edge solutions that meet the evolving needs of customers.

For instance, use of a dedicated high grade spectral quality extruded aluminium profile in Tansun heaters helps the powerful heaters stay cool during running time. The aluminium profile is lightweight to eliminate rusting and discolouration and 2.5mm thick to ensure that consistent high intensity radiant heating can be provided. Unique designed integral aluminium heat sinks additionally help keep the heater cool and improve reliability compared with inferior alternatives on the market. Additionally, our reflectors are accurately parabola shaped and designed and manufactured in-house, allowing for a perfectly placed lamp. In summary, a meticulous attention to advanced design has enabled Tansun to stay ahead of the curve as an infrared heating frontrunner. We also carry full test certification for Europe, USA and elsewhere in the world as appropriate and are always innovating right in the UK.

Flexibility in Design: Your Customisation Experts

Tansun's in-house design and engineering capabilities allow us to offer unparalleled flexibility in product design. Whether you need modifications to fit specific architectural structures, unique heat distribution patterns, or special features for different environments, we can adapt our products to deliver the ideal solution for you. Some examples include narrow beam heaters for dedicated aisle heating, ceramic specifications for our industrial Apollo heaters for environments that require no glare, chandelier heaters for grade-listed historic buildings or custom bracketry to maximise heat coverage and efficiency outputs from mounting. As a leading manufacturer in the UK, Tansun excels in superior engineering expertise which gives us the ability to offer custom designs in a wide range of RAL colours to ensure our heating solutions which seamlessly integrate into your project’s surroundings.
