Low Glare Ceramic Elements
Ceramic radiant heater elements are produced using a specialised process in which an alloy resistance wire is cast a ceramic body. The ceramic element is normally glazed to reduce moisture ingress into the ceramic material. Operating at lower temperatures that quartz heaters, they have a lower radiant efficiency than quartz and take longer to heat-up and cool-down time, with timescales measured in minutes. They are rugged and durable, and produce no visible glare.
