The Hercules Patio heater new for 2012 from Chill Chaser
The latest development in electric patio heaters from Chillchaser UK. These
attractive and unique electric patio heaters are the latest design from
Eddie Middleton who famously pitched to the Dragons on BBC's Dragons Den
Programme. The Hercules is hoping to follow the success of the Mercury,
Neptune and Zeus Patio heaters which were sold worldwide to restaurants,
bars, hotels and many more patio terrace applications.
date is expected March 2012 with a RRP of £699.00 GBP / $1100.00 USD with
delivery costs varying on location. The Hercules patio heater is now
manufactured in Scotland, UK instead of the old factory
in Shunde, Guangdong
Province China which
last year was hit by a massive storm which smashed through the factory
causing $1000's damage to the Zeus, Neptune and Mercury Patio heaters
which were ready for shipment. Stock had been tight for all of these
products which were retailing in the UK at around £399 and £329
respectively and suppliers could only buy small lots due to the supply
issue. Since production has moved to Scotland the manufacturing processes
has speeded up and the quality of the product has been improved with
thicker gauge metal but the price has risen on all the products across the
range. With the new Hercules electric patio heater expected to be around
$1100 USD it is expected to be a more commercially orientated product with
end users such as hotels, restaurant and clubs instead of home owners but
with it being such a attractive, desirable product it is assured to be a
great success worldwide.
