Indirect fired heaters are widely used in the event industry to heat marquees and temporary structures, keeping guests warm without any noise, smell or fumes. These units are also used where delicate and combustible materials are being stored, being indirect they keep the flame separate from the air flow.

On construction sites, indirect fired oil heaters are very popular as they provide clean dry air to assist with frost protection, whilst accelerating the drying process. These units are often successfully used in warehouses, factories, marquees, temporary structure, oil refineries, building sites and sports events. Indirect fired units can be positioned outside of the area requiring heating with the hot air ducted in via flexible ducting, or alternatively they can be positioned within the heated area with the fumes and exhaust ducted outside via a flexible flue.
