Whether you need to heat your warehouse, garage, or other hard-to-heat spaces, the SunStar SPS/U Series infrared heaters provide both the field efficiency of radiant heat and the installation flexibility you need.

SunStar infrared tube heaters are ideal for complete building heat or spot heating needs. The best applications are those where doors open and close frequently and in buildings where ceiling heights are above ten feet. The flexible SunStar infrared heating system can be designed to meet any commercial or industrial heating needs.

The minimum mounting heights are shown for human comfort and uniform energy distribution for complete building applications. Mount heaters as high as possible. CSA certified. This product has 5 year limited warranty on tubes and 1 year limited warranty on unit. This product is made in USA.

TISS™ Tube Integrity Safety Shut-Off System

SunStar’s patent pending innovative safety feature for positive pressure radiant tube heaters is called the “Tube Integrity Safety System” (TISS™).

In the unlikely event of a tube failure, TISS™ has been designed to automatically shut off the heater. The revolutionary TISS™ uses a simple principle to place an electrically insulated aluminum wire in tension above the reflector. Low voltage is then continuously passed along the wire in line with the gas control circuit. If heat levels increase due to heat exchanger failure, the wire melts and the safety circuit is broken, breaking the 24 volt circuit and shutting down the heater.

Note: Since straight tubes are always hotter at the burner end than at the exhaust end, always observe the minimum recommended mounting heights shown on the specification sheet for greatest human comfort. Use SIU series instead of SIS series for spot heating applications.

                • Researched and ordered my fireplace from US FIreplace Store. Pricing was a fair value however, the customer service was EXCELLENT! I had an issue with the direct vent venting. I called US Fireplace and the correct items were sent out the next day AND Janessa stayed on top of my return authorization and sent me the permissions and documents I needed to return the incorrect item and no cost to me, including return shipping. Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and my fireplace looks and operates flawlessly. I am glad that I selected US FIreplace to source my direct vent fireplace. Thank you for the great service.

                • I had placed an order, through Lowe's Home Improvement, for an Electric Firebox: Revillusion RBF42. Ordered 1st part of January. Was told I would have it in 3 weeks. When checking to see is it came in, was told it was delayed to 3/15. Was then told is was delayed until 4/25. Waited until 4/27 to check on it. Was then told it was now delayed until August. This firebox was going in a new Sun Room addition. I could not get my final inspection until the Firebox was installed. I went on line and googled for this same product. US Fireplace Store web site was given to me. This was on a Saturday. I call and reached a very nice man. Explain what I was look for. He checked and told me they had 30 of them in stock. I almost fell out of my chair. I clarified with him the product I was wanting. I ask how soon could I get it. He told me it would ship today. Again, was amazed. It arrived on the following Monday. What a pleasure and a relief working with US Fireplace Store and their employees. Exceed my expectations.

                • Great prices, quick delivery and fast hassle free services on the issue I encountered. I had purchased an electric fireplace unit that would not fit into the existing fireplace space. With one email I was able to get the wrong fireplace refunded and picked up at my home at no extra cost and the new one I purchased and delivered free of charge. Great company.
