Tripod mounted portable infrared heaters

hq1500p portable infrared heater and tripod

The HQ1500P tripod mounted portable infrared heater is a versatile, lightweight, easily transportable quartz heater, which has been designed for general heating and drying applications.

The HQ1500P-LV 110v version is intended for use on construction sites, and in workplaces where the use of 230v portable equipment is prohibited.

The HQ1500P produces 1.2 micron shortwave infrared heat which is ideal for:

  • Directly heating workers
  • Drying paint and plaster
  • Curing adhesives and GRP

Versatile tripod mount

The HQ1500P is supplied in three parts, ready for quick and easy assembly:
  • The heater head
  • Switch, bracket and cable
  • Tripod

The tripod height is easily adjustable between 91cm and 167cm. The heater head tilts up and down, allowing the infrared heat to be directed exactly where it's needed.

When the heater is not in use the cable wraps around the cable tidy on the tripod.

The heater quickly breaks down and the tripod folds up for easy storage and transport.
