Our technology

What is FIR technology?


Far Infrared Radiation, FIR, cannot be seen by the naked eye like visible light. Without warming the ambient air, FIR can penetrate the skin to a depth of up to 4 cm and is perceived as a gentle radiant heat. FIR have significant positive biological effects and research studies have shown that FIR can improve blood flow, have anti-inflammatory properties, and enhance wound healing. The FIR heat panels used in Stallvärme´s solariums are not to be confused with ordinary infrared heat lamps or other heat panels that uses IR radiation with much shorter wavelengths. These shorter wavelengths have not shown the same positive biological effects as FIR.

How does it work?

Our Infrapanels heat up surfaces, not air. Like the sun. Surfaces such as the floor, walls, horses and even humans are being warmed up by the panels and will start emitting that stored radiation, creating a comfortable soft  and energy efficient heat. Like the sand on a beach that has been heated up by the sun during the day will feel nice and warm under your feet, hours after sunset.

Air is not an effective element when it comes to storing heat. Heating up air is an inefficient way to keep your stable warm. Using fans or radiators will make warm air rising towards the ceiling, while the air near the floor will remain cold and damp. With our infra panels we heat up the surfaces instead, keeping the area where horses and humans actually are located, warm and dry. And with far less energy consumption.


Save energy when heating your stable

Our panels normally use 50-70 % less energy compared to electrical radiators or heating fans. The reason for this is that the surfaces and materials that are heated will store the heat for a long time. When the infra panels are switched off by the thermostat the surrounding surfaces will keep warming up the area for a couple of hours by emitting their stored heat.

 Heating up your stable with our infra panels will save money and provide a comfortable environment with less damp. Since there are no moving parts, the infra panels have an expected service life of 20 to 30 years. They are easy to install, completely silent and low maintenance. 

 Our Infra solariums are also very energy efficient. Our Premium Solarium is only 3,6 kW in total. It will make your horse dry faster after washing and it will effectively help warming muscles before training.
