LOCATING HEATER

Install heater away from traffic areas, maintaining clearances stated in figure 2 (below). The air flow direction should not be restricted (ie. by columns or machinery). The air flow should wipe exposed walls rather than blowing directly on them. When more than one heater is used in an area, heaters should be installed so that the air discharge of each heater supports the air flow of the others, to provide best warm air circulation as shown in figure 3.
