Atlantic brings you Tatou: your smart and stylish radiant heater.Experience the best of both worlds — unsurpassed comfort with exceptional energy efficiency. Featuring the latest technological advances in intelligent motion, light and draft sensors, Tatou warms your space and your heart.
You don't need to sacrifice energy efficiency for luxurious heating comfort. Tatou drives down energy consumption to breakthrough lows. Meet the new generation 'black body' radiant plate element — an exclusive Tatou feature that replaces the traditional finned electric element found on convection panel heaters. Tatou's 'black body' plate technology means only 80 watts per square metre of room area is recommended when sizing a heater. Compare this with the 100 watts per square metre recommended for traditional panel heaters.
Radiant heating is reward itself, offering all the comforts of a log fire. Now that's a superior level of ease that classic convection heating struggles to match.
Established in 1931, Atlantic is now a world leading manufacturer of electric heaters in Europe. Today, Atlantic has 19 manufacturing plants across Europe producing some 3 million units per year. Atlantic convectors are manufactured to exacting standards incorporating high quality materials, advanced control systems to increase performance, efficiency and life of the products.
No heater surpasses the quality of warmth and comfort produced by Tatou’s unique ‘black body’ radiant plate element, combining radiant and convection passive heating. It is Europe’s finest radiant electric heater.
The advanced large ‘black body’ plate element in combination with the motion, light and draft sensors produces energy efficiencies like no other heater. In addition the electronic thermostat regulates the air temperature every 40 seconds to 1/10°C for added savings.
The ultra efficient Tatou radiant heater requires only 80 watts per square meter of room area, not 100 watts as with other panel heaters.
Mode 1: When COMFORT is the priority, select comfort mode ( sun symbol) and the desired temp say, 20°C. The electronic thermostat will regulate the room temperature every 40 seconds to 1/10°C.
Mode 2: When COMFORT is required, PLUS energy savings, turn on the ‘Motion’ sensor. In this mode, if no presence is detected, the heater will turn down from the comfort setting by 2°C after 30 minutes.
Mode 3: When ENERGY EFFICIENCY is the priority, select ECO mode with “Motion” sensor on. Select the background temperature for when the room is unoccupied say 12°C with the COMFORT temperature set at 20°C. When ‘presence’ is detected, the heater will warm the room from 12°C to 20°C. When a person leaves the room, the heater will return to 12°C over 90 minutes.
Once a room comes to temperature, the Tatou heater cycles at approximately 50% of the time therefore assuming electricity costs 25 cents per KWH:
2000 watt costs 25 cents per hour – Room size 20-25m2
1500 watt costs 19 cents per hour – Room size 15-20m2
1000 watt costs 13 cents per hour – Room size 10-15m2
If the draft sensor is turned on, and a cold draft is detected, the heater will turn to standby mode ( 7°C) and automatically return to heating when the temperature stabilizes.
Yes, the sensors can be turned off with a simple press of a button. This may be the case when there is little movement such as reading a book or watching TV.
