Car Washes

Heating Harsh Environments

Car wash applications offer a variety of challenges. Most are designed for heat with the idea of freeze protection and spot heating of employees. Short length tube heaters with high BTU ratings or small to mid-sized high intensity heaters are good choices and are best placed at the ends of the tunnel for spot heating. Millivolt controls are typically chosen for equipment rooms (if shielded from the wind) for freeze protection during power outages.


Stainless steel, silicone sealant, waterproof controls and electrical attachments are recommended. Lastly, heaters with two-stage operation will increase energy savings.

Brant Radiant Heaters Limited is pleased to offer a full line of low intensity infrared heaters specifically designed for harsh environments.
