  • The heat lamp can be placed flexibly in any place, for example, in the nursery, bathroom or bedroom.
  • Heat lamps with stand are usually height adjustable, the distance to the changing table can be adjusted variably.
  • Mounting is not necessary.
  • Has a swivel head.
  • If the changing table is located in a place with a low or sloping ceiling, it may not be possible to maintain the minimum distance when wall-mounted.
Advantages of Wall Mounted Heat Lamps
  • Ready for use at any time and in the right position
  • Wall mounting allows stable mounting and is very space-saving
  • There is no risk of accidentally knocking the lamp over. This is especially important if there are other children living in the household.
  • Robust workmanship and sturdy wall mount or a fixed stand are essential.
  • A power between 300 and 800 watts is sufficient, for particularly cool rooms 400 – 600 watts are ideal
  • Over 800 watts of power is usually too high.
  • With different heat levels, the heat can be regulated as needed.
  • Operation by pull cord, switch or remote control should be chosen according to ease of access.
  • Infrared lamps are ready for use immediately and save preheating. In addition, the red light has a calming effect on the baby.
  • The automatic switch-off ensures that the heat lamp switches itself off after a certain time. This saves electricity and prevents accidents caused by overheating.
  • Splash protection is particularly useful if the heat lamp is placed in the bathroom. If children pee while changing diapers, the jet can sometimes reach surprisingly far and hit the lamp, so splash protection is also useful for this.
  • The tilt protection prevents the tilt angle of the heat lamp from changing during diapering.
  • A protective grid prevents direct contact with the lamp.
  • The heat lamp, pull cord and power cord must always be out of the baby’s reach.
