6 Tips for patio design with radiant heaters
TIP 1: Choosing the perfect patio heater model
Every terrace has its own, individual look. The demands of the users are also different in terms of design and functionality. BURDA is one of the leading manufacturers on the market that offers an unmatched variety of products. We can rightly claim to have the right solution for every taste and need. In addition to our three radiant heater product series RELAX GLASS, TERM2000 and SMART, we also offer with BURDA MODULAR patented system solutions that combine infrared heaters with LED lighting, cooling systems and/or Bluetooth speakers.

TIP 2: Decide on a color that matches the patio furnishings or awning
Choose the radiant heater to match the patio decor, the awning color, the color of the slat roof or other sun protection. Depending on the product series, we offer various standard colors. However, there is also the option of ordering the heater in a custom finish at an additional cost.

TIP 3: Calculate the required wattage for the heating area
Various factors play a role in finding out what power an infrared heater must have to ensure that the desired outdoor area is supplied with sufficient heat:
Open terraces / balconies require more power than protected or covered terraces / balconies.
Should only a certain area, for example the seating area, be in the area of thermal radiation or the entire outdoor area?
Wind-protected terraces / balconies that are not exposed to the weather require less heating power than open areas.
Calculate the heat requirement as follows:
- RELAX GLASS: 300 watts per square meter in wind-protected outdoor areas
- TERM2000: 250 watts per square meter in wind-protected outdoor areas
- SMART: 250 watts per square meter in wind-protected outdoor areas
TIP 4: How would you like to fix the spotlight — wall, ceiling, awning, screen … or prefer ceiling installation?
Everyone can easily install BURDA infrared heaters on the terrace or balcony. Here is an overview!
TIP 5: Would you like to control / dim the heater conveniently via radio or Bluetooth?
Then we recommend our Somfy io radiant heaters RELAX GLASS io or TERM2000 io. They are compatible with the leading radio control system io-homecontrol® and can be easily integrated into the system. On the other hand, we offer our Bluetooth radiant heaters from the TERM2000 and SMART series, which are controlled wirelessly via smartphone or tablet.
External dimmers, timers and motion detectors not only ensure that our infrared radiant heaters are used in a more resource-efficient manner, they also help to reduce energy costs. In our HEAT RADIATOR ACCESSORIES range you will find a large selection of control options for our infrared radiant heaters via cable (fixed connection), radio or Bluetooth. The heater control via a remote control also increases the ease of use.
TIP 6: Combine Bluetooth speakers, LED spots or cooling with the radiant heater for the perfect terrace atmosphere.
The radiant heater series RELAX GLASS and TERM2000 can be expanded with sound, light and cooling modules. BURDA MODULAR describes a waterproof MODULAR CLIMATE SYSTEM, which can be used in any length, function and color for heating, cooling and lighting outdoors. Infrared heaters, LED spots, cooling nozzles ore speakers are simply connected with a patented plug-in system.
The BURDA TERM 2000 MODULARSYSTEM has received numerous awards, including the RED DOT AWARD 2019, the GERMAN DESIGN AWARD and the INNOVATION PRICE R + T 2018.
