alternative green heating – infra-red heat emitting fleece

In an analogy of the architectural design process, we have now completed the “conceptual” stage in designing for our sustainable future, and next we have to delve deeply and quickly into the “design development stage” of green design and clean green technologies’ (Spector, A)

In a response to the desperate need for more efficient methods of heating our homes and offices, Astec International have developed a new way of maximising the distribution of heat, and thus minimising the energy input required.


Ground breaking nanotechnology that uses micro-ceramic infused fleece to efficiently distribute heat with almost 100% energy efficiency. As the air is warmed indirectly, an ambient temperature is achieved as heat radiates from objects inside the room, heating the room more rapidly and efficiently than conventional systems by heating objects rather than circulating air. This creates additional benefits for allergy sufferers with a dramatic reduction in the movement of allergens.

The fleece neither emits microwave radiation nor causes atmospheric dehydration and is just 83 grams/m2. Therefore it can be installed behind plaster board, within wall and ceiling cavities, under floors, behind wallpaper, stuck to the wall and painted, free standing or hung like a picture. Temperature is controlled using a conventional thermostat.
