Mid-Range Heat Lamps - Size Guide

If you require a more complex job than the IT-500, then our mid-range products are a great place to start. These three models all come in at the same post size of 150 x 5 x 5 cm but each offer a different curing area to suit your needs.

With a curing area of 50 x 60 cm, the IT-1000 is a fantastic affordable option for small garages and bodywork enthusiasts who require small to medium repairs. With the IT-2000, a curing area of 70 x 80 cm provides an extra boost for reaching more areas without moving the lamp. The IT-3000’s curing area of 100 x 90 cm is suitable for all professional repairs including spot repairs, adhesive strip removal and drying primer. Your choice here will depend on how much you want to balance cost versus efficiency for a maximum output.
