The Lighterman at Granary Square, King’s Cross, is a new contemporary design of public house and a landmark site in the new King’s Cross development. And Tansun infrared heaters are playing their part by enhancing the exterior space for the warmth and comfort of customers.
This new project by Open House Projects has seen The Lighterman join the group’s two others in London’s Fitzrovia and follows the theme of a modern interpretation of the traditional pub with casual dining, drinking and socialising using modern British menus with European influences.
Inspired by the Victorian Lightermen who worked on the flat bottom barges, known as ‘Lighters,’ The Lighterman has a contemporary design over three floors with stunning views across Granary Square and Regents Canal.
Tansun infrared heaters were selected by Open House Projects for the outside terrace where Tansun’s Bahama single 1.5kW heaters are discreetly integrated under seven parosols with four heaters per parasol.
Hannah Burke, project manager for Open House Projects, is delighted with the result and comments: “The Tansun heaters really do allow us to take the inside out, making our terrace functional over the cooler months and evenings so generating increased revenue from customers’ outdoor use.”
She continues: “We were delighted to find the Tansun heaters as they are very sleek looking units and can be specified in any RAL colour. We chose graphite grey to complement the masts of the parasols and so they are not at all intrusive, and at the same time have low glare and look warm. The heaters have been very successful and we hope to use them on other projects in the future.”
The Bahama infrared heaters from Tansun are a flexible design easily fitted onto awnings and parasols to become part of their structure and are IP rated. Available in single 1.5kW or double 3kW appliances, the stylish heaters can cover an area of up to 22m2 and their glare reducing gold reflectors have a smooth, parabolic finish for powerful heat dispersion.
The Bahama heater provides customers with low glare heaters that fit discreetly into many environments in the standard colours of white, grey or black. The design is also available in any RAL colour with Tansun’s bespoke colour service which allows heaters to be powder coated in a wide range of colours with additional corporate branding if required. The Bahama heaters can be made to fit awning or parasol profiles or indoor/outdoor venue colour schemes to suit customers’ needs. The heaters come with a full two-year Tansun warranty.
All of Tansun’s products are manufactured in the UK and designed using premium components. Tansun has been established for 35 years and pioneered the concept of infrared electric heaters in collaboration with Philips technology. The company offers the largest range of domestic, commercial and industrial infrared heaters in the world, providing maintenance free, safe and healthy heating appliances.
