Prestyl USA, LLC was founded to propagate healthy eco-responsible heating solutions
Heating technology has evolved from cavemans simple fires To the wood or coal burning stoves of the 18 th century The history of heating
In modern homes we mostly see forced air systems, ….. Radiators, which primarily operate as convection units, …..
The history of heating …… difficult to repair in-floor radiant or Hydronic Systems, and more recently, expensive Geo-thermal systems. The latter are plagued by severe climate-related limitations.
The history of heating When heating systems fail to perform and people get cold they resort to using dangerous and highly inefficient supplemental heating units
The history of heating To fully understand Prestyls comfortable and energy-saving heating solutions we have to go back to basics…….
Eliminate duct or piping losses Eliminate convection losses Eliminate dust and pollen circulation Eliminate hot head, cold feet syndrome Quickly recover comfort after doors have been opened and warm room air has escaped Save energy by implementing efficient and healthy point of use heating
As with lighting products, Prestyls technology can be mounted on walls, on ceilings, in suspended ceilings, or hung from chains
Reliability and Quality With sixteen years of development and OEM deployment in harsh operating environments, it is safe to say that Prestyls thin-film technology, with a life expectancy of possibly 50 years or more, is among the worlds most dependable products available.
How does infrared work? A small portion of the suns spectrum is healthy infrared heat. After the sun goes down, objects that were exposed to the suns infrared warmth, especially stone and concrete, will continue to emit the infrared heat that was absorbed and stored during the suns exposure for many hours.
How do we do it? Just as it is with the sun, Prestyl heats the objects and people in a space, not the air. Prestyls 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 up to 50% or more.

Product details Prestyl offers 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 or 240 volt plug-in, but the 208, 240, and 277 volt units may be ordered with flexible aluminum conduit if required by code, e.g. plenum drop ceilings spaces….
Product details Standard dimensions are 2 x 2 and 2 x 4 (both are designed so that these would also fit into standard suspended ceiling grids found in North America). A larger 42 x 42 unit is also available All can be hung via chain or ceiling/wall mounted.
Typical 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 separate plug-in units or these can be located in a wall-switch box. (please contact your dealer or electrician for details) Typical thermostat
One-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 fall to the floor.
On-ceiling Installation 1.Insert the flat (longer) lip of the bracket first 2.Lift the panel towards the ceiling and slide it to the left to engage the right-hand side of the bracket 3.Lower the panel so it rest son the bracket. Push the panel slightly to the right and close the latches (use a flat- blade screwdriver or other suitable tool if needed). Latch
Typical Installation (suspended ceiling) Depending on local codes, panels in a multi - panel system may be plugged into thermostatically-controlled outlets or hardwired. Note: Some local codes require optional flex conduit. If this is the case, panels must be ordered with the flex- conduit option, consultation required…

Certifications All panels are: ETL listed and approved for residential and commercial applications. Conforms to UL STD 1278; Certified to CSA STD C22.2 No. 46 Export panels comply with most international certifications, including GS(Geprufte Sicherheit-Tested Safety Germany /EU), KEMA(Global Energy & Sustainability testing), NF(Norma Francais FR/EU/international standards meets safety and quality), CE(Conformité Européenne- Certified Quality), GOSTR(Gossandart Russian Safety & Mandatory Certificate).
System Sizing & Examples Maximum Range or Ceiling-height: <16, 9=(best,*) Typical installed power required per sq.ft : 3.5W – 5.5W Note: *Taking in all variables to calculate the proper coverage is crucial. Never an issue for oversizing, under-sizing looses the effectiveness of the system. We have a sizing calculator that defines the relationship between installed power, ceiling height, loss factors (such as doors/windows/structure), and climate. When required, although a working knowledge become very easy. Examples: In a well-insulated home with and 8 ceiling in Canada, the installed power is only 3.71 watts per square foot; in very cold climates it could be up to 5.5 watts per square foot. Including garages now! Shops with O/H cranes would mount 45 deg off perimeter wall and working areas off the path of the crane zone. etc
Accessories & requirements Relays: Any suitable relay or contactor will work, to minimize switching noise Prestyl recommends hybrid or electronic relays. Power supplies: For increased safety Prestyl recommends low-voltage control systems consisting of an suitable power supply, thermostats, Low-voltage controlled (hybrid/electronic) relays and control wiring. Caution: Proper sizing of the system must always be planned out and provide a single line to the client for their electrical inspectors.
Accessories & requirements (continued) Thermostats: Prestyl requires a thermostat with a dry loop closure on heat call. The thermostat should be programmed for as few cycles per hour as possible – use the radiant heat setting if provided (IR is a slow & steady technology, the fewer cycles the higher system efficiency) Prestyl recommends a set-back thermostat. Unlike with forced air heating, the thermostat should be set to activate at night to store the heat in the mass, and set lower during the day to save energy.
Accessories & requirements (continued) Relays per thermostat: When Prestyl-recommended hybrid or electronic relays are used, these only draw milliamps to activate. Most thermostats can support 10 or more hybrid or electronic relays (Please review the specifications of the thermostats and relays selected.) Optional DIN-rails/Cabinets: Nowadays, many systems are based on DIN rail standards. Most of Prestyls recommended components are available as DIN-rail mountable units that fit in optional DIN cabinets
Accessories & requirements (continued) Flex conduit option: Where code requires, Prestyl offers a flex conduit option for its in-ceiling systems.

Availability of Accessories Prestyl USA manufactures and distributes proprietary Prestyl heating products. It does not carry or distribute third-party accessories. A recommended list of third-party accessories is in the works. Otherwise, thats decided by either the end-user, or the installer. HIO offers a fee-based cost+ purchasing service to help customer acquire third- party accessories if extensive engineering is required for their system. This is a courtesy service only; Prestyl does not warranty (or assume any liabilities for) third-party products.
Building requirements Like any other technology, Far-infrared (regardless of manufacturer) is limited by the laws of nature/physics A building must be reasonably weather-tight and preferably insulated The 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!
Building requirements (continued) If an office shared 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 cold into the building and will need to be fitted with storm windows or will require more panels than calculated Never install fewer panels than calculated. More is better, fewer panels means higher operating costs and cold people!
Far Infrared Highlights 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) AC or DC (non-inverted systems)
