SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

WATER INGRESS PROTECTION

A&J Natural Heating Panels are rated to a standard enabling them to be located within splash zones in a bathroom which means they can be placed in the splash zone above a sink. However, installation in potentially wet or humid rooms must be carried out by a suitably qualified installer and comply with local electrical safety requirements.

Installation must be such that:

  • The heater must not be able to become detached from the fittings and fall into a bathtub, shower, swimming pool or other water containers

  • Switches and other controls cannot be touched by a person in the bath or shower

IF IN DOUBT, DO NOT INSTALL.

A&J Natural Heating Panels shall not be liable for any loss, damage or injury caused or resulting from inadequate fitting or incorrect placement of heaters close to water sources.

POSITIONING:

  • This is an infrared heater. It heats objects by transferring energy directly from the heater into adjacent objects.

  • Therefore, consider placing the heater where it will not be immediately obstructed by objects like furniture or where it cannot effectively radiate out, such as at the edge or in the corners of a room.

  • Objects placed in front of the heater will heat up and can prevent effective heat dispersion into the room. Avoid placing it opposite windows or open doorways.

  • Only specific models are designed for ceiling mounting, please check with your A&J Natural Heating Panels consultant before mounting to the ceiling.

  • The minimum distance from the back side of the panel must be 1.5 inches to the mounting surface.

  • This will always be the case if the mounting hardware provided is used.

  • Objects in front of the panel must be at least 2.5 inches away and 8 inches away from the sides. The distance from the sides of the heater must also be respected if it is intended to recess the heater into the wall or ceiling. Failure to do so will cause excess heat to build up behind the heater and will void the warranty.

INSTALLATION WARNINGS:

  • Wiring to this appliance must be connected in accordance with the relevant national electrical safety standards.

  • Any fixed wiring outside the heater coming into contact or close proximity to the heater must be protected by a sleeve with a temperature rating of at least 90°C (194°F).

  • All cabling behind the appliance must take the shortest route to the edge of the heater.

  • Ensure that the power cable is not coiled. Shorten the power cable if possible and do not place excess cable on the rear of the heater.

  • Electrical connections must not be made behind the heater regardless of wall or ceiling-mounting position.

  • The heater is not to be located immediately below a socket outlet in either wall or ceiling-mounted positions.

  • DO NOT drill through the heater as this will cause irreparable damage and is also dangerous.

  • DO NOT connect a heater that is damaged in any manner to the power network.

  • For mounting the A&J Natural Heating Panels use the supplied mounting hardware only and install in accordance with the installation guide.

  • A&J Natural Heating Panels cannot accept responsibility for damage, loss or injury caused by, or resulting from incorrectly installed heaters.
