Details


Made from Aluminium - heating the area quicker!


Thermo-tubes are used to supplement existing domestic or commercial heating systems, offering an economical source of additional heat. Tubular heaters that have steel casings require an inbuilt thermal cut-out device to prevent overheating of the tube element. Thermo-tubes have an aluminium outer casing so they do not need this type of element, this is because the aluminium casing releases the heat produced much quicker thus heating the area quicker and are also much lighter than similar sized steel tubes. Thermo-tubes are even more energy efficient when used in conjunction with a plug in thermostat!

  • Ideal heating for applications that require low cost, steady background heat
  • Used as a heat source or frost protection & to prevent condensation
  • Also used for snooker table slate heating, "improves ball speed" approved by the professionals
  • All heaters are supplied with mounting brackets and anchorage for each length
  • Linking kit (TBX2PK-Kit) also available, to allow for 2 heaters to be joined in series
  • Designed with safety in mind, IP54 water proof rating
  • Power: 1ft=60W, 2ft=120W, 3ft=180W, 4ft=240W, 5ft=300W, 6ft=360W

  • Guards sold separately, see related products!
  • Supplied with 1m fitted cable (NO PLUG)

      Can you install tube heaters vertically?

      No all tubular heaters must be installed horizontally on the wall or floor space. If a tube heater is installed vertically the heat will not distribute evenly, all the heat will simply rise to the top of the tube and eventually burn the element out!

          Do you have a tubular heater with thermostatic control?

          Yes we have a new range of tubular heaters called the Hylite thermostatic tubular heaters that have an inbuilt thermostatic control!

              Can you install tubular heaters on the floor?

              Yes tubular heaters can be installed on a floor space using the fixing brackets supplied; they are not to be placed directly on the floor without the brackets, natural air circulation must be able to circulate under and over the tubular heater!

                  What are the most popular tubular heaters you stock?

                  The most popular tubular heater is the Hylite Slimline Eco Tube Heaters Thermostatic, this is mainly because they are more Slimline than other ranges that we have and they also have an inbuilt thermostatic controller. The guard for this tubular heater is also Slimline and has a special cut out at the front of the mesh grill so you can control the thermostat without having to remove the guard, please call our sales team for more advise on tubular heaters 0844 884 2900!

                      Can I use tubular heaters to dry cloths like socks and underwear?

                      No the tubes are not designed for drying cloths and should never be covered by clothing even with the guard fitted, the face temperature of the tube gets very hot and would simply burn clothing with a potential risk of causing a fire. Tubular heaters rely on natural air circulation to distribute the heat evenly in your space, please call our sales team for more advise on tubular heaters 0844 884 2900!

                          Are tubular heaters safe to use in lofts to protect water pipes from freezing?

                          Yes they are ideal for loft spaces, best to install the tube below the water pipes if you can and make sure they are protected with a guard to prevent anything from falling or landing of the face on the tube as they get very hot!

                              Can tubular heaters be used outdoors?

                              Tubular heater can be used in outbuildings like Greenhouses, Garages, Cloakrooms, Offices, Workshops, Conservatories, Spare Rooms, Sheds, Boats, Toilets, Villas, Airing cupboards, Pet enclosures, Utility rooms, Porches, Wardrobes, Caravans, Offices, and Lofts; however they should not be used directly outside!

                                  What are the sizes of tubular heater you supply?

                                  We have a wide range of different sizes and brands in stock, 1ft, 2ft, 3ft, 4ft, 5ft, 6ft, and 500mm, 1000mm, and 1500mm!

                                      How long are the tubular heater power cables?

                                      Some tubular heaters are pre-fitted with power leads with UK plugs fitted and are roughly 1.5m = 5ft in length. However we also have a range of tubular heaters that have no leads fitted and we can make up any length you require or simply supply the tube on its own to enable you to have your own size fitted. Please call our sales team for more advise on tubular heaters on 0844 884 2900.

                                          Do you have tube heaters that are suitable for use in wardrobes as a heater/dehumidifier?

                                          Yes tube heaters are suitable for wardrobes but you will also need the guard to fit over them as they get very hot to touch!

                                              Can you join tubular heater together?

                                              Yes you can join the thermo tube ranges together with a maximum of two tubes together using the TBX2 linking kits. Do not join more than two tubular heaters together as they will not work efficiently and they will eventually burn the heating elements out much quicker, please call our sales team for more advise on tubular heater linking on 0844 884 2900!

                                                  What power tubular heater do I need for a small cupboard?

                                                  As a rule of thumb you will need 90watts per square meter of floor space, we have 1ft tubes that use 45W of power up to the 6ft tubes using 360W of power, please call our sales team for more advise on tubular heaters on 0844 884 2900!

                                                      How much do tube heaters cost to run?

                                                      Tubular heaters are very energy efficient for example a 1ft tube with power consumption of 60W, if left switched on all week would cost £0.62p based on a tariff of 10p per kw/hr, please call our sales team for more advise on tubular heater running costs 0844 884 2900!

                                                          What do I need the tubular heater guard for?

                                                          Tubular heaters get very hot to touch >60C, therefore guards must be used if the tubular heater is fitted in wardrobes or where anyone or anything could fall on or come into contact with the hot surface of the tubular heater!

                                                              Can I use a tubular heater for my bird aviary outside?

                                                              Yes they are ideal for many pet enclosures like aviaries, dog kennels, horse enclosures, rabbit hutches, chicken hutches eta, as long as they have a protective guard covering them and not open to direct weather conditions!

                                                                  Can I use tubular heaters to warm my snooker table slate bed?

                                                                  Yes we have supplied many tubular heaters to professional snooker players that want a cheaper option to heat the slate bed; The desired temperature of a snooker table - slate bed is in the region of 25-30Celcius (77-86F) this helps to keep the moisture out of the cloth and more importantly to reduce friction in the table to aid the balls rolling and rebounding in a consistent manner, and generally makes a table play faster. To heat a full sized snooker table you would need 4 x 3ft thermo tubes (made from Aluminium), placed underneath and fixed horizontally e.g. pocket to pocket, equally spaced along the table. Two tubes can be connected together in series so you would need two power supplies, total 720watts. They are only needed for a short period of time especially in winter when rooms are more likely to be cold and damp!

                                                                      What I want to do is try and keep the temp as even as possible in my small cupboard for hanging coats eta, so would your Hylite Slimline Eco Tube Heaters Thermostatic do the job?

                                                                      Yes the Hylite Slimline Eco Tube Heaters Thermostatic will keep an even temperature in your cupboard space using the inbuilt thermostatic controller, but I would recommend covering the tube heater with a guard when coats or cloths could possibly fall on the tube heater!

                                                                          Do you have greenhouse tubular heaters?

                                                                          Yes we have the Hylite Greenhouse Tube Heaters in 2ft and 4ft sizes; they are finished in green; however all our tubes can be used in outbuildings, please call our sales team for more advise on tubular heaters 0844 884 2900!

                                                                              I want a tubular heater for my greenhouse, are they safe to use if water is sprayed on them?

                                                                              Yes the waterproof rating of our tubular heaters is IPX4 so they will be protected against splashes of water, you can improve the water proof rating by using silicon sealant at the end cap and where the power cable enters the tube. Tubular heaters are not designed to be hosed down but they will certainly withstand sprays of water, please call our sales team for more advise on tubular heaters 0844 884 2900!

                                                                                  I have a 45' x 6"10' narrow boat which has doubled glazed windows. I want to use tubular heaters to avoid the frost damage I experienced last year but don't know what size or wattage I should get. Can you advise me please?

                                                                                  "Yes the tube heaters are what you need as they are low cost, low energy; you will need 90watts for every square meter, you can connect two tubes max in series, not sure what space you have but if you work to 90watts per sqm you will avoid frost damage!"
