3Prestyl Corporate Profile Prestyl USA is a subsidiary of a US-based holding company; Prestyl was founded in 2010 as a California LLC.The company’s name is derived from “Prestige” and “Style” representing high-quality and modern styling
4Prestyl is in the process of obtaining a patent for its newly designed “Constant Comfort Control” system; this is expected to revolutionize the far-infrared industry.Next the company will pursue a patent for its “Instant-On” far-IR heating technology; this is expected to be “the future of far-infrared”; imagine walking into a space and having the system fully active in 8 seconds.
5Prestyl USA is a US manufacturer Prestyl develops and producesfar-infrared heating products
6Pre-Prestyl solutions…. When modern heating systems fail to perform and people get cold they resort to using dangerous and highly inefficient supplemental heating units.
7Space heaters (which can be found in many offices in both summer and winter) are used to either supplement a problematic heating system, or to “balance” AC systems.No matter how much the power, hot air rises and feet and legs will remain cold.At 1500 to 2500 Watts each, space heaters are “energy hogs” and may consume more energy than the entire building’s HVAC system.
8Prestyl’s solutionPrestyl’s solution is a * Watt far-infrared under desk unit that is both efficient and therapeutic; it warms the legs and feet as well as the floor below the desk or work-station.* 100 – 268 Watts with optional PWM intensity controller ( degrees F surface temperature) or 275 Watts self-regulating to 205 degrees Fahrenheit without controller.
9Whole building or supplemental Prestyl’s heaters may be used toHeat an entire buildingHeat a remote room or new additionReplace sections of broken hydronic (water-or other liquid-based) systemsIncrease the comfort in any room
10Fixing a difficult to repair in-floor “Hydronic” System or an under-performing Geo-thermal system can be done easily by installing “plug and play” printed artworks connected to line-voltage thermostats, or …. by installing the panels as part of the existing system with relays/contactors and fixed or wireless low-voltage thermostats.Additional solutions (Prestyl’s under laminate and “behind the plasterboard” in ceiling) are being submitted for approval by UL. (Spring 2014 release)
11Replacing dangerous but commonly-used systems The high-temperature open-element heater is still used in many places, yet it causes several serious health problems; these heaters operate in the visible or “near-infrared” part of the spectrum.
12Visible, or “near” infrared operates at wavelengths which are known to cause a number of serious eye ailments.Near IR heaters also cause skin and tissue damage if exposed for longer periods of time (sub-surface burns).Exposed element heaters operate in the dangerous 2,000 to 4,000 nm wavelength and because these also heat the air molecules, use more energy than Prestyl’s panels, which operate at 7,500-10,000 nm (the healthy part of the infrared spectrum).
13Near infrared can be used for outdoor applications since it operates at high power levels and since people are only exposed to its waves for a limited time; but indoors it should not be used because it is a health hazards.Near infrared waves collide with the air molecules - - this translates into a large portion of the energy being converted to convection with its associated losses.
14Purpose-specific solutions Storing heat energy during “off-peak” hours and using it (with the power switched off) during the peak demand.Using most of the energy when rates are low (night) and switching off the power until needed during the work day.The first “dust-free” operating room systems have been built and commissioned with Prestyl’s heaters and specially designed hospital regulators. These are integrated into the Operating Room’s control system. The use of IR allows for cooling the patients and keeping the doctors and nurses comfortable.Peak-shiftingDual-fuel rateOperating and Clean-rooms
15Purpose-specific solutions Prestyl has several unique projects under development; one of these is an “instant-on” heater that is regulated to +/- 1 degree C.Using the same technology as for the incubators, these panels will operate at a “base temperature” keeping the tile and bathroom fixtures warm. When the occupancy sensor is tripped the panel’s temperature, and hence the intensity will increase. (Pre-production “qualification units” are being tested by several hospitals in Belgium and Holland).Various emergency room developments are in the worksIncubatorsHospital bathroom systemsEmergency rooms
16Purpose-specific solutions Prestyl has developed a 130 Watt 1 x 3’ in-line heating module that delivers 20% of its heat energy to the seating surface and 80% to the floor and feet region. In many churches and arenas that either have no heating or have convection heating, adding far-IR to the benches is the only way to create a comfortable environment.This product is now in limited production; modules are connected in a daisy-chain fashion to allow for a single feed point for each string of heaters.Church or stadiumbenchheaters
17EfficiencyPrestyl’s Far-infrared is one of the most efficient heat sources available today; it rivals and in very cold winters, exceeds the performance of the best heat-pump or geothermal systems.
18Environmentally responsible HIO/Prestyl’s heaters are constructed from pure, 100% recyclable high-quality aluminum rolls.In total, 99% of the panels is recyclable.12 to 50% lower energy consumption than traditional heating technologies. (savings depend on building type and installation)
19Reliability and Quality With eighteen years of development and OEM deployment in harsh operating environments, it is safe to say that Prestyl’s thin-film technology with a life expectancy of possibly 50 years or more is among the world’s most dependable products available.
20Health Benefits of Prestyl Far-Infrared Heat · American Medical Association testing shows that FIR warms and stimulates body tissue — this; improves circulation, reduces swelling and inflammation, and stimulates increase in new blood cells, which acts as an energy booster on the body and eliminates body toxins quicker.· American Medical Association testing shows that FIR strengthen the body’s resistance to infectious disease by increasing lymphocytes, which reduce frequency of respiratory infections.· American Medical Association testing shows that FIR increase oxygen capacity in your blood.
21Health Benefits (cont’d) · American Medical Association testing shows that FIR increase your body’s tolerance to stress.· American Medical Association testing shows that Far Infrared Rays are anti–aging. FIR stimulate cell tissue growth by regeneration of skin tissue and blood cells lost to aging. They also speed up cellular metabolism by stimulating mitochondria an enzyme activity.· American Medical Association testing shows that FIR cell stimulation also increases bone growth and strength.· American Medical Association testing shows that FIR increase your body’s melatonin (helps with sleeping, aging and reproduction), cortisone (naturally occurring steroid in body) and testosterone (growth hormone occurring naturally in all humans).

23How does infrared work?A small portion of the sun’s spectrum is healthy infrared heat. After the sun goes down, objects that were exposed to the sun’s infrared warmth, especially stone and concrete, will continue to emit the infrared heat that was absorbed and stored, during the sun’s exposure, for many hours.
24Why is Prestyl so special? The core of our heating technology is a unique proprietary alloy that features heating characteristics not found in any competitor’s product.
25How do we do it?Just as it is with the sun, Prestyl heats the objects and people in a space, not the air.Prestyl’s soothing far-infrared waves heat the floor, walls, furniture, etc. Heat energy can be stored at night (when the rates are low) and “returned” during the day providing for energy savings of 15 to up to 50% or more.

30Conclusion of general information… Next… Product details and technical info…
32Product detailsHIO/Prestyl offer its far-infrared heating panels as printed artworks (both standard and custom prints) as well as ceiling-mountable white, black or custom colored architectural units.The standard is 120 plug-in or 240, 208, and 277 Volt hard-wired units.
34Product detailsStandard dimensions are 2’ x 2 ‘ and 2’ x 4’ (both are designed so they will fit into standard suspended ceiling grids).A larger surface-mounted or chain-suspended 42” x 42” unit is also available.
35Far infrared heating panels can be mounted on walls, on ceilings, in suspended ceilings, or hung from chains.
36Typical Installation (single units) Single panels may be wall or ceiling mounted and plugged-in when heating is needed.Alternately, a switched outlet or …(if temperature control is required), a line-voltage thermostat may be used.Line-voltage thermostats can be a separate plug-in units or these can be located in a wall-switch box . (please contact your dealer, electrician or HIO for details)
37One-person “on-ceiling” Installation With the optional “S”- hooks, ceiling (surface-mount) installations require just one person; this represents a 50% panel installation labor cost reduction.Rather than using a helper, the “S”-hooks suspend the panel while the electrical connection is made.To release the hooks lift and shake the panel until these will fall to the floor
38“On-ceiling” Installation Insert the flat (longer) lip of the bracket first.Lift the panel towards the ceiling and slide it to the left to engage the right-hand side of the bracketLower the panel so it will rest on the bracket, push the panel slightly to the right and close the latches (use a flat-blade screwdriver or other suitable tool if needed).
39Typical Installation (suspended ceiling) Depending on local codes, panels in a multi - panel system may be plugged into thermostatically controlled outlets, or can be hardwired.Note:Some local codes require optional flex conduit, if this is the case, panels must be ordered with the “Flex-conduit option”.

46CertificationsAt Prestyl we take agency compliance seriously; though many of our competitors claim to have certain certifications and listings, they are not able to produce evidence that they do. In fact many of the far-infrared products on the market today have never been tested for safety by a reputable laboratory or agency.

60Building requirements Like any other technology, Far-infrared (regardless of manufacturer) is limited by the laws of nature/physicsA building must be reasonably weather-tight and preferably insulatedThe most important consideration is the floor. The floor must be well insulated, especially around the perimeter.If the concrete is wet, the area of the building with the wet floor will not warm up until the moisture has evaporated.If a building “stands in water” infrared will not work!
61Building requirements (continued) If an office shares a slab floor with an unheated warehouse, conduction to the unheated space will require more panels than calculated (an insulated sub-floor in the office will solve this problem.)Buildings with old steel or aluminum single pane windows conduct heat to the outside world; unless properly sealed storm windows are installed, this building will require more panels than calculatedNever install fewer panels than calculated. More is better, fewer panels means higher operating costs and cold people!
62Highlights Comfortable (soothing warmth all over) No dust or pollen circulation (does not move the air)Prevents mold (floors walls and ceilings warmer than the air)Improves ability to learn/higher productivity (documented lower absenteeism, no noise pollution, no hot head cold feet syndrome, just a more comfortable environment)Saves energy (typical saving 20-50% or more)Environmentally responsible (almost 100% recyclable)Can be powered by renewables (lower or no carbon emissions)
