Custom Flexible Heaters

Best-in-class performance and lowest total cost of ownership through energy efficient operation, easy installation, and high quality and reliability

At Heater Designs, we apply our knowledge and expertise in the design and manufacture of custom heating elements to a broad spectrum of customer applications. We produce both wire and etched foil heater elements, in simple or complex configurations, for use from cryogenic temperatures to +400ºF (+200ºC).

We utilize many different insulation and dielectric materials, including silicone rubber, Kapton®, Mylar®, fiberglass, and more. Elements can be supplied with special thermal insulation for further efficiency and reduction of power usage.
