Equipment Selection: A wide variety of equipment options are available for heating a warehouse environment. The type of warehouse, size, mounting heights and other obstacles must be considered. Tube type heaters offer more options for heater placement with regard to clearances to combustibles. Heaters are normally thermostatically controlled.

Installation: Heaters are strategically placed within a warehouse for optimum coverage of space. This may be a perimeter-mounted system, or a series of heaters between rows of storage racks. Clearance to combustibles must be considered carefully. This is true for both top clearances and lower clearances, which are of concern when stacking combustible items. It recommended that warning plaques (#PLQ) be mounted to advise users of clearance to combustibles and stacking limits.
