The cylindrical shape on the Hotsopt® butane gas home heater it’s the feature allowing the unique 160 degrees heat spread capability of the appliance. It’s compact, easy to store and the first home gas heater designed for the new generation of lightweight gas canisters, featuring a very effective isolating protection between the polymer canisters housing and the heat source.
The first batch was built in steel sheet metal, but soon, lab tests proved the good performance of the isolating parts.
Then heat wave control lead to the replacement of all user interactive parts- handle, doors and command knobs- by injection molding ABS.
