One of our latest winter heating projects is the Sir Paz Estate located in the famous wine growing region of the Yarra Valley, near Melbourne.
Sir Paz Estate is on a beautiful 35 acre elevated site, surrounded by orchards and other vineyards, and has recently opened a Cellar Door which provides wine and cheese tasting, as well as weddings, parties and corporate events. The venue has a large external terrace with elevated views over the Yarra Valley, which until recently has been uninviting in winter, due to the lack of outdoor heating.
According to owner Peter Zapris, the challenge was to find an outdoor heating system that was effective, unobtrusive and high quality - in order to maintain the magnificent views and complement the quality of the site and local produce. Heatstrip Classic was selected as it is stylish, slimline and Australian designed and engineered. Staff could also zone the large area, depending on customer loads and being electric, Heatstrip could be operated at the push of at button, and running costs are considerably less compared to the bottled gas heaters.
The Beachmere Sustainability Project, Sunshine Coast, QLD
The Beachmere Project is a launch into sustainable design and building by Sovereign Homes. They were redeveloping a modest beach shack into a luxury, eco-friendly home that will offer long-term efficiency and customer savings, long after construction is completed, more than exceeding the requirements for HIA GreenSmart certification.
The materials and products chosen to be showcased in this home must meet rigorous standards: they must be proactively designed to be eco-friendly, and manufactured in an environmentally sound manner.
Sovereign Homes chose Thermofilm’s HEATSTRIP® Max radiant heaters for the home’s outdoor dining area. HEATSTRIP® Max heaters are engineered with a unique high-output, low-glow Incoloy element that saves energy by minimising unnecessary light output. The sleek, unobtrusive profile of the HEATSTRIP® Max perfectly complements the home’s luxury look and feel, while also being a durable, corrosion-resistant outdoor heating solution, for the beach-side location.
Thermofilm is an Australian-owned company that has manufactured and supplied heating equipment for more than 25 years. We recently won the 2014 Victorian Manufacturer of the Year Award for design and manufacturing excellence, and its innovative, market-leading products are currently exported all over the world.
The Penrith Panthers Leagues Club recently underwent a major refurbishment and redesign. HEATSTRIP radiant outdoor heaters were chosen for heating in the outdoor areas as their slimline, unobtrusive design complemented the new decor. HEATSTRIP Classic THH3200A units are installed in outdoor bar and dining and DOSA areas. Product Specification:HEATSTRIP® Classic THH3200A
Crown Casino - Melbourne
Shane Warne's luxury lounge bar Club 23 located at Crown Casino, Melbourne, features an elaborate balcony overlooking the city’s beautiful skyline. HEATSTRIP Classic 3200 watt radiant outdoor heaters were chosen for their slimline, sleek, unobtrusive design which blends seamlessly with the balcony, while the suspended ceiling mount does not obstruct any skyline views.

MCG - Great Southern Stand refurbishment
Almost 20 years since its original completion, the MCG Great Southern Stand is receiving a $55 million refurbishment and upgrade. Thermofilm’s HEATSTRIP Indoor (THS range) and HEATSTRIP Classic (THH-A range) products were chosen for their streamline design, easy installation and strong heat output that was demanded in such a high traffic environment on game day.
