KBE5L Radiant Heater

Dealer Opportunities

The newly upgraded KBE5L 2-Step is now equipped with a High and Low output control making it very economical. Also included is a Fuel pre-heater to keep fuel moving smoothly as temperature decreases.

KBE5L 2-Step state of the art combustion chamber enables virtually 100% fuel to energy conversion. This translates to clean, odorless, smokeless operation and, more importantly, fuel savings.

Impervious to nature’s elements (wind, rain, and snow), the KBE5L 2-Step is able to transfer infrared heat directly to the object without any loss of heat or air movement.

ENERGY SAVING – Selecting a low combustion can make fuel consumption lower.  This means that this heater can save you operation cost.  For example, in early winter if the heater operates with a low combustion, it can save 1.2 gallons a day, 24 gallons a month.


Sunlight Warmth – VAL6’s radiant heat penetrates evenly and directly into surfaces just like sunlight.

Best Choice for Outdoors – VAL6 is not affected by wind, unlike forced air heaters that suffer from heat loss in the  ambient air.

Heat Transfer – Generates infrared heat directly to the object without any air movement creating a dust-free  comfortable environment.

Odorless – Perfect combustion system produces no odor and no smoke while running.

Energy Savings – State of the art combustion chamber enables virtually 100% fuel to energy conversion.

Portable – This heater can be taken virtually anywhere that you need heat.

NEW Features of the KBE5L

2-Step Output Control
High and low output control is equipped.  It enables its user to choose between a high or low output thus making it very economical.

Fuel Preheater

As ambient temperature decreases, viscosity increases.  To counterbalance this effect, a heater is built into the fuel line to keep the fuel moving smoothly.

Optional Accessories

Val-Mat Heat Shield Mat
To prevent fire or damage to combustible floor surfaces, always use a “Heat Shield Mat” when operating VAL6 heaters.

KBE5L Safe-T-Halo
Under cold conditions, the urgency to warm up with your Val6 radiant space heater can sometimes over-ride caution. The preventative Safe-T-Halo is highly regarded as a common sense safety complement option.
Safe-T-Halo assembly includes mounting rails, replacement bolts and special design Halo and also includes self-store slots so Halo can be in upright-store position when moving through doorways or in off-season.
