Powerful Portable Hazardous Area Heating : Multiple SA Equip Flexiheat Heaters can be configured to provide rapid heat-up with less ducting in the working area and dramatically reduced downtime. 

Multiple heaters reduce downtime considerably with fabric maintenance, paint curing, and composite repair work. A recent client used two SA Equip Flexiheat Heaters coupled side-by-side when carrying out some blasting and painting work on a huge area on the underside of an offshore helideck completing the work task within than an hour rather than the usual full day shift.

"This is the only ATEX heater available where you can attach a duct kit to direct the heat exactly where you need it. Attach a duct to any other ATEX heater on the market today and it immediately invalidates hazardous area certification and warranty," comments Terry McDonald (T&D Sales Manager).
