Commercial Patio Heaters

For over 35 years, Tansun has been a leading manufacturer and supplier of high-quality commercial patio heaters. 

Effective Patio Heating for the Hospitality Sector

Businesses within the hospitality industry such as bars and restaurants understand the value of a comfortable outdoor terrace area, dramatically increasing the establishment’s seating capacity and thereby greatly raising its revenues. Patio areas are the ideal way for customers to relax, dine and have a drink outside.

Issues may arise however when temperatures begin to fall with sudden onsets of howling winds. Tansun have firmly understood this problem and so have specially designed commercial heaters to target heating these different sized outdoor areas as well as canopies and other outdoor seating areas.


  • Efficient: Tansun’s exceptional range of heaters uses infrared heat that is not affected by the wind and does not escape and rise outside of the patio area.
  • Space-saving: Tansun's range includes models that can be parasol or wall-mounted. THis frees up valuable floor space, leaving more space in the patio area for paying covers.
  • No heat loss: Tansun's patio heaters use the latest in infrared shortwave technology which is unaffected by the wind. They heat people directly resulting in a warm and comfortable environment.
  • Highly efficient: Infrared is a remarkably energy-efficient form of heating where energy conversion rates are around 98%. Typically an infrared heater is 40% of the size of a conventional heater yet will still produce the same level of warmth. This means a 400W infrared heater for example will produce the same amount of heat as a 1kW conventional heater.
  • Controllable: The heaters can be controlled by time lag switches or remote controllers such as the Tansun Digital Thermostat.
  • Environmentally-friendly: With climate change a global priority, it is reassuring to note that, unlike traditional gas patio heaters, Tansun heaters emit no direct C02 or NOx emissions. And when combined with green energy tariff, they offer the potential for a zero-emissions point-of-use solution.

Outdoor Heating for all Commercial Settings

Tansun’s elegant  outdoor electric heaters use innovative infrared shortwave technology, meaning the infrared heat released from the heaters is not affected by the air or wind and so directly provides comforting heat to the people that require it. 

The unobtrusive electric heaters have an ambient low glare and are even available in any RAL colour with custom branding also possible, so the infrared heaters can discreetly fit into any outdoor commercial area you require. 

Tansun’s range of commercial patio heaters are some of the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly infrared heaters on the market. The  outdoor infrared heaters are perfect for commercial patio heating, as well as heating awnings, terraces and parasol areas.
