A tubular heater is a tube shaped heater; it provides heat via electricity which heats the element inside the tube structure which radiates outwards thanks to its tubular structure. They are usually made from mild steel tubes, however Thermo products tubular heaters are made from aluminium, acting as far better conductor for the heat to dissipate heat quickly and efficiently.

Unlike many other portable heaters, they are safe to run for long hours without supervision and can be put out of the way.
