‚ÄčAbout Heatstrip

The HEATSTRIP is a high-intensity electric or gas radiant heater suitable for indoor and outdoor heating. It can heat a terrace within 10 minutes and is felt up to 4 meters from the source. Many conventional patio heaters rely on convection heating that works by heating the surrounding air. Since there is usually constant air movement in an outdoor or open indoor space, this can be quite impractical, as this heated air can be easily blown out with natural air movement. HEATSTRIPS transfer heat directly to objects through infrared waves that heat the surface of the objects themselves, while convection heating heats the air between objects. The HEATSTRIP is more effective in this case.

HEATSTRIP electric patio heaters are more effective in an indoor or outdoor space as they provide direct targeted heat to the people and objects in their path. HEATSTRIP can provide comfort heating at your workplace or business, including designated outdoor smoking and recreational areas. HEATSTRIP can provide comfort heating in your home for covered dining and BBQ areas, patios, porches, courtyards, balconies and conservatories.


The HEATSTRIP brand was launched in Australia in 2004. The Thermofilm design team saw plenty of opportunities for a new style of electric radiant heaters.

The first model was designed for indoor use only and was an instant success. Engineers and architects designed them for schools, offices and many other objects in Australia and New Zealand.

A logical next step was the development of the HEATSTRIP for outdoors. The outdoor model had to reach a much higher operating temperature. This presented unique technical challenges and many hours of development and testing went into perfecting this revolutionary model

This eventually led to a large number of different Heatstrips. There are 6 different series of products within the HEATSTRIP product category: The Elegance, Design, Max, Indoor, Gas (selection Good Design Australia) and the new Intense. No matter what your needs are, you will be able to find the indoor or outdoor heating in our wide selection of solutions.

Thermofilm is justifiably proud that HEATSTRIP is the original design of this type of product, the number one brand for reliability and firmly established as a market leader on an international level.
