Kelray Heating was founded out of the need for a high quality outdoor heating solution which was simply not available in the market. Dissatisfied with the products on the market at the time, Kelray Heating founders, Kelvin Davis and Ray Maddix set out to produce the next generation of outdoor heater.
Built in New Zealand, using high quality NZ sourced materials, Kelray Heating’s electric heaters are specifically designed for New Zealand and Australian conditions – particularly our salt-laden air. Kelray Heating has built a worldwide reputation for their quality, durable product and now supplies their outdoor heaters throughout NZ, Australia, Europe and the Pacific.
Unlike gas heaters, which simply heat the surrounding air, resulting in a high level of wastage, Kelray’s range of electric infrared heaters utalise high intensity medium wave length which passes through air and is absorbed by solid objects like our bodies. With Kelray’s electric outdoor heaters you achieve a better use of energy – saving up to 75% on operating costs in comparison to traditional outdoor LPG heaters.
Whether you are looking to make your outdoor patio more usable, or need a comprehensive outdoor heating solution for a commercial venue, Kelray Heating offers a diverse range of outdoor heating products.

Heating for a outdoor area was critical, as we live close to the sea and as such needed a quality solution that would last. We looked at a number of major hardware chains that had imported heater models which were limited on warranty and very light on quality.
We contacted Kelray Heaters and were promptly provided a demonstration unit. It was apparent from the onset the quality and design was far beyond anything else we had looked at, and they are made in New Zealand!
We now have a Kelray I.25 heater covering our enclosed deck, the heater is excellent and it has turned our outdoor area into another room which we can use virtually all year round.
Kiwis love their outdoor living. But with often unpredictable temperatures our patios and outdoor spaces are often uninhabitable. Kelray Heating’s range of outdoor patio heaters will allow you to utilise your outdoor spaces, all year round.
Unlike traditional patio heaters & lamps which operate on gas, using the process of convection to heat only the surrounding air, Kelray’s electric patio heaters work to drastically minimise heat wastage, ensuring heated air is not blown away in the breeze.
Kelray Heating’s electric patio heaters can heat spaces up to 16 square metres and come with a 3 year warranty – NZ’s longest outdoor patio heater warranty.
