Diesel Heaters

With the cold season well and truly upon us you might be thinking about heating your workshop, garage, or office, there are several diesel heaters available on the marketplace but all are not made the same.

Oxdale is coming up to the third year of being a dealer for Airrex diesel heaters. Initially, Oxdale thought the diesel heaters would be a cost-effective and efficient way to heat up the working environment. Oxdale has Fabrication, assembly powder coat, laser and press facilities. All are heated by the Airrex Diesel Heaters. As the heaters don’t have a fan or naked flame it is perfect for workshops and warehouses and even the insurance companies like them.

Airrex Heaters

The triple combustion process ensures complete and clean combustion. Normal ventilation is sufficient. An effective silencing system inside the exhaust pipe compresses and expands the exhaust gases which makes Airrex very quiet – only 48 dB.
