Auckland based Outdoor Heating Manufacturer

New name, new generation of superior outdoor heaters

Welcome to the warm and wonderful world of Kelray Heaters – New Zealand designed and manufactured infrared radiant heaters for the “great outdoors”, designed to suit New Zealand and Australian conditions.

Who are we?

 Kelray Heating is owned by New Zealanders Kelvin Davis and Ray Maddix. Kelvin and Ray have been active in the automotive and industrial infrared radiant heating market in New Zealand since the early 1990’s.

During recent times a surge in alfresco/ outdoor dining and outdoor smoking areas has increased the demand for efficient, high quality electric infrared radiant heaters. To meet this demand, Kelray Heating has developed a new line of “Kelray” infrared radiant outdoor heaters and it is now successfully exporting them to Australia, the Pacific, and Europe. Kelray Heating also manufactures heaters under private labels for other heater distributors, both locally and in Australia and Europe.

Kelvin and Ray’s previous experience in the design and manufacture of outdoor heaters led them to seek design changes – in this developing market the time had arrived for a better heater!

What people are saying..

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.

Kelray New Generation Heaters

From importers and manufacturers to leading edge designers, Kelray Heating has made significant changes and improvements to traditional infrared radiant outdoor heaters.

Kelray’s “New Generation” series heaters are specifically designed for New Zealand and Australian conditions, particularly our salt-laden air. There are in fact, no fewer than 17 improvements – a stronger, more robust element, better element fixing, stainless steel screws, bolts and fixtures to eliminate rust, stronger points for pivoting heaters, more insulation. These are just some of the advances Kelray has made to create a higher quality product. If it doesn’t have Kelray’s manufacturer’s label on it, it is not made in New Zealand.

Kelray Heaters, manufactured locally, sold throughout  the world.
