Hotdoor® is not only an infrared heating lamp: it is a new way of increasing the value in hotels’, restaurants’ and bars’ outdoor, which take care of their image even in details.
In the outdoor context, the heating lamp plays an essential role for the comfort, especially during the evening time and in the cold season. For this reason the heating lamp must be seen as a piece of furniture and around it, the whole outdoor must be somehow arranged. Thus, lines, aesthetics and design become an essential requirement for outdoor spaces arranged in a tasteful way.
These premises moved Phormalab® in looking at the world of infrared heating. The aim was to introduce a new concept in this world, that takes always care of efficiency and functionality: the concept of a fine heating lamp. So Phormalab® began to cooperate with Antonio Di Chiano, a young and talented industrial designer, who supports his natural creativity by a deep knowledge of manufacturing processes and marketing techniques. Through a continuous cooperation, Hotdoor® is born, the first Italian design heating lamp, completely produced in Italy.
Unlike most of the infrared lamps, Hotdoor® is not manufactured by bending a metal sheet. Our designers worked above all at forms and attractive impact of the product.
The final result is a lamp in die-casting aluminum by dedicated molds. The special bending of internal reflecting surface required a dedicated mold too, and its final form combines design and maximum energy efficiency. Hotdoor® and its components are protected by a design patent. Wall and ceiling bearings and floor stems of Hotdoor® lamps are made of aluminum or of other corrosion and weathering resistant materials. The infrared bulb is manufactured according to HeLeN technology of Philips, now developed by German company Dr. Fischer.
HeLeN bulb is the top of the quality in infrared technology: it assures a very long lamp life without any color alteration and a perfect impermeability against sprinkling of water (IPX5 protection) so that Hotdoor® lamp can be used outdoors.
Electrical wires are protected by a double silicone and high temperatures resistant sheath.
The lamp is supplied with special electrical connections assuring impermeability against rain and water jets also for outdoors installations.
