Outdoor Heaters with Sensor Activation

When sites in Ireland returned to work after the lockdown, there was a need to create eating and breakout areas where the site operatives could be socially distant from each other.

This site created an outdoor space within the site compound to facilitate this. The site also installed heaters within the shelter to keep operatives warm during the colder months. Rather than place a switch or button which could be left on or create a common touching surface which was to be avoided during coronavirus, the site team decided to install sensors on the heaters so they would only turn on when individual was within the area.

This removed the common touching point and also saved energy. During the warmer months, the heaters could be switched off as there was no need for additional heating.
