Marley Introduces New Custom Cabinet Heater With SmartSeries® Plus Controls

Marley Engineered Products introduces the CUH Series Custom Cabinet Unit Heater, which delivers supplemental comfort heat in a contemporary design to match modern and future architect specifications. The unit is operated by the new SmartSeries® Plus, a digital touchscreen control capable of running a fully programmable internal schedule as well as connecting to a BACnet Building Management System. “The Marley Cabinet Unit Heater offers 16 air inlet/outlet combinations that are all field-changeable for wall or ceiling placement, is easy to install and maintain and features a robust design,” said Kyle Jason, product manager for Marley Engineered Products. “The unit is ideal for a variety of spaces requiring supplemental heat including school hallways, church vestibules, transportation terminals, stairwells, entrances, lobbies, mechanical rooms and more.” The CUH Series Cabinet Unit Heater features a standard stamped grille with optional ducted grilles and a hinged front panel for one-person maintenance on ceiling applications. A front cover interlock de-energizes the unit when the front cover is removed for added safety. A disposable air filter is mounted in the inlet air stream or choose an optional permanent and washable aluminum filter. Custom Cabinet Unit Heater Each unit comes standard with two thermal safety cutouts to automatically shut off the heater in the event of overheating" Feature a robust design, the cabinet is constructed of heavy 16-gauge cold-rolled steel to provide strength and finished with a polyester powder coating for corrosion resistance. Motors are mounted with automatic thermal overload protection and motor fuse protection is provided on all heaters to meet safety requirements. “Each unit comes standard with two thermal safety cutouts to automatically shut off and protect the heater in the event of overheating,” said Jason. “The unit will reactivate when operation temperature returns to normal.” The Custom Cabinet Unit Heater offers a temperature range of 50 to 100 degrees F. It is available in white, beige, charcoal gray, aluminum, statuary bronze, desert tan or gloss black. Custom colors are available upon request.  Smarter Controls The SmartSeries Plus intelligent controller comes ready to connect to a Building Management System using BACnet MS/TP protocol with just a few presses on the digital touchscreen and a simple 2 wire connection. The SmartSeries contains two scheduling modes – a Setpoint Mode for heat only and a Dual Setpoint Mode for heating & cooling. “The SmartSeries allows users to run the heater only when directed by the internal schedule of the BMS,” said Jason. “Use of the BMS also saves facility manager time and reduces personnel costs by eliminating the need to travel to the heater site. And, if a BMS is not available, the user can simply use the built in 7-day programmable scheduling feature.” Added SmartSeries controls include an occupancy setting to quickly schedule multiple periods per day at a desired temperature for operation when occupants are expected in a space. Other features include a lockable keypad to protect the unit from unauthorized access or tampering and a temperature override that allows users to set a temperature above programmed setpoints for up to four hours in an unoccupied state.

Marley Engineered Products QMark Infrared Heaters Deployed At Two Twisted Posts To Warm Outdoor Spaces

It’s no secret that the pandemic has had a devastating impact on restaurants, bars, and wineries. With indoor seating restricted in so many places around the country, business owners have had to look for practical and cost-effective solutions to comfortably – and safely – service their customers in an outdoor setting. As the weather turned colder, this became more of a challenge. Two Twisted Posts (TTP) Winery in Purcellville, successfully met this challenge by selecting infrared radiant heaters from Marley Engineered Products to warm their outdoor areas. QMark infrared heaters Working with O.T. Hall & Son, Inc., a family-owned electrical manufacturer’s representative firm that has covered the Maryland, D.C., Virginia and Delaware markets since 1920, Brad Robertson, the owner of TTP, approved the installation of QMark infrared heaters from Marley Engineered Products to heat the outdoor spaces. Ideal for indoor/outdoor, total or spot heating use, the infrared heaters feature heavy gauge bright anodized aluminum reflectors and a steel enclosure. “Radiant technology puts warmth right where you need it, without having to heat – or pay for heating – the surrounding air,” said Mike Jennings, inside sales representative with O.T. Hall. “With no need for a fan or exhaust, radiant heaters provide a safe, quiet heating alternative for many indoor and outdoor spaces. We offer a variety of radiant heater configurations, sizes, reflector angles and elements so that we can customize the right heater for the project and for a customer’s specific performance and design needs.” easy to control method The radiant heaters from Marley were installed in covered areas including a crush pad with three open sides “Heating the outdoor air with an open flame or forced-air heaters would be less efficient as that heat would just rise up and leave the space through the roof vents,” said Robertson. “Also, we have an all wood barn structure where open flames are not a good option. We sought a low-maintenance, efficient and easy to control method to keep people seated outdoors comfortable enough to stay and drink our wine.” The radiant heaters from Marley were installed in covered areas including a crush pad with three open sides and on a covered porch along the length of the building. These areas feature 14-foot ceilings with no insulation and are open to the elements. From the original engineering diagram and with the size, spacing and location of the heaters, the installation was projected to increase the temperature of the large space to within 20 degrees of the outside temperature. In the outside space next to the building, it was projected to increase by 10 degrees.  vinyl tent sidewalls To help deter wind and precipitation, Robertson also installed removable vinyl tent sidewalls around the outdoor spaces. With the heaters fully operational, Robertson placed a thermometer in the area to monitor the temperatures of the spaces.  Without these heaters we would have likely been forced to close for the winter season" “On one check date, we had a temperature outside of around 32 degrees and a reading in the heated covered area of around 58 degrees,” he said. “Similarly, on a date when the outside temperature was 40 degrees, we had covered area readings of 60 degrees. These readings validate the engineer’s predictive performance and are making our outdoor areas much more comfortable for visitors.” Robertson expects the added operational cost from the installation of the heaters to be minimal and much lower when compared to using propane to heat the same areas. He also believes his revenues should increase slightly because of the additional seating areas. efficient heaters “We were able to turn our patio into an ideal seating area because of these efficient heaters and this kept us open during the COVID pandemic,” said Robertson. “Without these heaters we would have likely been forced to close for the winter season and not only would have lost revenue but may also have lost long-time employees and customers if we were closed for an extended period.” Now, wine connoisseurs can spend more time comfortably enjoying the high-quality bottles that TTP Winery produces. "We look forward to extending our outdoor season and using our outdoor space for special event groups that we previously had to turn away," added Robertson.
