Terrace Heating: Keep outdoor dining venues warm and cosy all year round in David Franz Winery

Heliosa outdoor infrared heating solutions case study

David Franz Winery is a stunning destination for relaxation located in the beautiful Barossa Valley. With only a cosy and small indoor cellar door area, the winery is reliant on using its large outdoor terrace for guests to enjoy a variety of food and exceptional wines while experiencing fabulous Barossa vineyard views. The downside of this amazing terrace is that it is exposed to the elements, which can make it uninviting on chilly Spring or Autumn days, as well as during Winter. Initially, they used mushroom gas bottle heaters in an attempt to keep the venue warm but found it was actually hard to heat continuously and evenly. The gas bottle heaters took up valuable floor space, were prone to losing heat in windy conditions and of course, ran out of gas at the most inconvenient of times!


David Lehmann, the owner of David Franz Winery, wanted to find an alternative heating option that was effective and could improve both dining capacity and customer experience.  After consulting with Infrared Australia and experiencing short-wave infrared for himself, he was convinced 8 Heliosa 66 short-wave heaters have been the answer to his prays, perfectly blending with the terrace and ensuring that everyone feels warm while dining and enjoying his great wine selection in comfort. David Lehmann’s verdict:“We are over the moon with the Heliosa 66 heaters as replacements for the gas bottle heaters we used before”.
