Electric Unit Heater Range – Outputs – 3kW to 27kW
Electric Unit Heater – The FHSH electric unit heater range of low noise,efficient fan heaters for fixed installation of larger areas are suitable for heating, drying and /or ventilation of larger areas. The heat output and fan speed is set via the control panel on this range of electric unit heaters. The adjustable wall mounting brackets allow the air stream to be directed to suit the site conditions. All of these electric unit heaters are made of corrosion proof housing of white powder coated steel panels, and are the perfect solution for your commercial or industrial electric heating needs.
Electric Unit Heaters – Applications & Function
The FHSH 6kW to 15 kW Electric unit heaters are not intended for use other than indoors and are only to be wall mounted and for this reason some people refer to them as wall mounted electric blow heaters, for ceiling mounted units that can blow the warm air down vertically , please see our “FHTHERM-E Range” , detailed at the bottom of the page .These electric unit heaters are appropriate for the heating of warehouses, workshops, storage rooms, show rooms, etc.
Installation time and costs are minimized when using our electric unit heaters as they are compact and completely factory wired, the unit heater only requires only a power supply connection to the heater. These units come with a control box, which should be mounted at point that gives easy access to the operator of the electric fan heaters. Several electric unit heaters may be control via one control box if so required.The controller makes it possible to control the 3 fan speeds and the 2 heat levels of the electric unit heaters. We supply as standard the wall mounting bracket and a controller , as a total package for these electric unit heaters, making them ideal solution as an electric unit heater for a garage or car workshops.
The air is carried through the heater by a fan and heated by non-corrosive elements which are regulated by the built in thermostat with at range of +5 to +35°C. The air speed is adjustable in three steps. Switching on or off, selecting half or full output and regulating the RPM is performed through the control box , which is wall mounted for easy access. The appliance is protected from overheating via a built-in temperature limiter.
Safety – There are a couple of common sense rules that apply to all electric unit heaters , these are –
- Ensure that the area around the intake and the exhaust grille is kept free from material which could prevent the air flow through the appliance.
- The electric unit heater has hot surfaces during operation.The heater must not be covered either with clothes or similar material since overheating of the appliance can result in a fire hazard.
Our electric unit heaters operate reliably when installed and operated as directed. In addition to meeting all requirements of the electrical standards , the heating element is backed with a two year warranty.
The “FHSH” Electric Unit Heaters are a great and inexpensive heating solution for garages,workshops, stores, sports and entrance halls, businesses, assembly and storage facilities, in churches and also in damp areas ( due to the IP44 electrical rating ). There are models with 6kW, 9kW, 12kW or 15 kW Outputs available within this range of warm air electric unit heaters.

Electric Unit Heater / Commercial Electric Unit Heaters – Technical Information
Our small commercial fan heaters provide a “heat throw” of 7 metres at maximum fan speed. The intelligent fan control optimizes fan speed and heat output to quickly achieve and control a comfort temperature whilst maintaining a very low noise level. Provides comfort heating while working in garages, workshops and warehouses and a great solution for commercial heating applications
Industrial Electric Unit Heaters – IP Rating & Electrical Standards
All of the FHSH Electric unit heaters are rated to IP44. This IP rating is made of up of two components , the first digit gives the level of protection that the enclosure provides against access to hazardous parts (e.g.- moving parts, electrical conductors,etc) and the ingress of solid foreign objects – for our electric units heaters this is 4 – and means that tools, wires, screws etc larger than 1mm are protected against . The second digit of the IP rating relates to the protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against the harmful ingress of water- This again is 4 for our electric unit heaters – and means that water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect. Thus IP44 means that the electric unit heater is protected from tools and small wires greater than 1 millimeter and protected from water spray from any direction.
These wall mounted electric unit heaters have been design an manufactured in accordance with the specifications of the following directives and standards –
MSD 89/392/EEC – 91/368/EEC, 93/44/EEC, 93/68/EEC, article 6, and the relating standard of EN 292-1, EN 292-2
LVD 2014/35/EU and the relating standard of EN 60335-2-30
EMC 2014/30/EU and the relating standard of EN 55014-1, EN 55014-2, EN 61000-3-2, and EN 61000-3-3
Electrical installation – The electrical installation should be carried out by a qualified electrician in conformity with prevailing regulations. The heaters must be connected to 3 Phase x 400 Volt~ via the CEE-plug, see the schematic. For connection between the control box FHCB2 and a FHSH heater, the connection should be made with a cable type H05VV5-F 0,75mm2 or similar may be used. On the back of the appliance there are two cable glands to be used for the connection to the control box FHCB2. When several heaters are connected to each other and controlled by a common control box FHCB2, it should be stated in the group centre that “the fan haters are fed from more than one group supply”
Commercial Electric Unit Heater – Zinc Plated – 6kW to 20kW Output
We also supply a upgraded or premium commercial electric unit heater , called the “FHNXG” range. This range of commercial unit heaters benefits from a zinc plated metal housing and a more capable control system. They have a digital control system that allows you to –
Delay start -Programmable On feature – This feature enables the user to postpone the starting time of the electric unit heater by up to 99 hours.
Delay stop – Programmable Off feature – This feature enables the user to extend the operation of the electric unit heater by up to 99 hours.
Post ventilation – This feature (setting time between 1-9 minutes) enables the heater to cool down before eventually switching off. This saves and utilizes the energy to it’s maximum, as the residual heat is fully utilized, and blown into the area that is being heated.
Ventilation only mode – This unit can also be used in a ventilate only mode which is useful in the summer months to move hot or stagnant air.
Digital Temperature Control – The heater can automatically control the room temperature up to a maximum of 35 Degrees C. The heater will automatically come on , if the room temperature falls under the desired temperature you select ( up to and including 35 Degrees C) , the heater automatically switches off when that temperature is achieved.
