Many infrared workshop heaters are classified as 'dustproof' when in reality the infrared elements are exposed. Dust can still affect these heaters and may damage them or even be hazardous. For example, wood dust contains resins which can fuse onto a hot electric element, shortening its life. Our glass-fronted workshop heaters are sealed to prevent dust getting in and are designed specifically for environments where dust may be present. Where dust particles may be flammable and/or gas may be present, check out the EHSAFE ATEX models.
