Heaters for Marquees +

Unfortunately the LB White Marquee Heaters are no longer available for UK and Europe. We have developed our own heater with all the good points of the LB White Heaters and added new featueres. We hope to have these available to buy in early 2022 - unfortunately the launch has been put back.

We still offer spares and servicing for the LB White Heaters.

Our Marquee heaters will be ideal for marquees but have wide applications for heating buildings, workshops, leisure areas and temporary buildings and structures.

bge2217insituVery clean burning, safe and thermostatically controlled.

Very efficient heating of the space by directing downwards at the optimum temperature. Reduces heat loss by reducing the hot air rising to the ceiling

We also offer servicing and spares availability - see below

More info and technical advice - see below:

If you have problems check out the following

  • - the electric supply is clean and has a good earth
  • - the heat stats at either end of the heater are ok or reset
  • - the thermostat is set to a suitable temperature.
  • - the electrical connections inside and out are sound (a competent person should check). 

How to choose your heater

Servicing and Spares

We run a comprehensive information, servicing and spares facility at our works.

You will need to get the heaters or accessories transported to our Birmingham Works and we will carry out the service and send them back to you.

In busy periods like the autumn there may well be a wait before we can take the heaters and it could then take a few days to do the work.

Contact us for more information and to book your heaters in.

Technical Information - Mqee Htrs (How Many?)

These high quality heaters, provide safe, reliable heat.
They are fully approved and tested to European standards.
They come complete with hose and regulator for the standard 5/8in BSP POL fitting on most propane cylinders.

Also provided are an electrical lead and plug for a standard 13 amp domestic 220/240v socket, together with a remote thermostat.

All you need to provide is:

  • a 13 amp 240v electrical supply,
  • a cylinder(s) of propane.

At least one 47kg cylinder is required for the heaters, and for continuous use for the 170 heater on colder days it would be better to provide two cylinders joined by a Pigtail - 500mm long (Bullfinch 1494) and Y manifold (Bullfinch 1506).

Long heating time between refuelling by linking cylinders together.

A guide is shown below to help you decide how many heaters you require for your marquee. A more comprehensive guide is available on request.


The following is a guide for the number of heaters required for a 20 deg C temperature rise in a 4m high marquee (approx figures as a guide only):

100 sq m (1000 sq ft) - 1 TS080 or 1 TS170
250 sq m (2500 sq ft) - 2 TS080 or 1 TS170
400 sq m (4000 sq ft) - 4 TS080 or 2 TS170
500 sq m (5000 sq ft) - 5 TS080 or 2 TS170

Operational Instructions - Marquee Heaters

Marquee heaters with internal reset Switch

These are brief instructions for the use from the 2208, 2217 Marquee heaters manual -TS080 & TS170 - models with internal reset switch -up to year 2007.

You can download the full manuals from the downloads section.

Start Up

The heater should be installed by a competent person who should instruct the user on how to use the heater.

Start up sequence instructions:

  • Check the thermostat is turned down to zero and the selector switch is in the central position (off).
  • Open the cylinder valves and check for gas leaks using soap solution.
  • Connect the electrical cable to an approved electrical outlet.
  • Set the thermostat to the desired temperature.
  • The heater has a selector switch located on the side of the heater. This switch allows the heater to be run in either heating or ventilating (no heat) modes.

Switch positions are:

  • UP for heat
  • CENTRE for off
  • Down for ventilating.
  • When the selector is UP for heat, the heater will cycle on and off based on the setting of the thermostat.

Both heaters include a direct spark ignition (DSI) control module for the purpose of ignition control as well as monitoring the safety functions of the heaters. The DSI module is located at the burner end of the heater and contains a red light emitting diode (LED) and a small white reset switch.

The LED indicates the status of the heater.
A constant flash pattern (approx once every second) indicates normal operation of the heater and that all systems are working correctly.
Any other flash pattern with 1-2 second delay or steady ON state indicates a problem has occurred with the normal operation of the heater. Reference to the troubleshooting information located on the inside of the burner end door panel will give guidance to the problem and possible rectification procedure. A more detailed expolation of the possible faults can be found in the owners manual. Only qualified and competent personnel should service or repair the heater.

When heat is required the fan motor will start up and run for 5 seconds prior to the DSI running its ignition trial. This 5 second delay is to ensure that gas that may have built up in the burner chamber is cleared out. After 5 seconds the igniter will spark until the burner lights and the DSI detects a flame. The spark sequence then stops and normal running of the heater continues.
NOTE: It is normal for new installations to have air in the hose which has to be purged before normal ignition takes place amd several attempts will have to be made by the system before the air has been purged out of the system and normal operation occurs.

If ignition does not occur during the ignition trial sequence, the DSI will lock out into a TWO flash pattern on the LED (ie two flashes followed by a small delay, then two flashes etc). The DSI is then in lockout mode and will have to be reset.

Resetting DSI

The DSI control module can go to lockout (ie steady on, two flash, three flash or five flash pattern) - see above. It need toi be reset before normal operation can be re-established.

Firstly, find and fix the problem which caused the lockout. (Reference to the OWNERS MANUAL and the information on the inside of the door panel should highlight the possible cause.

Once the problem has been rectified the resetting procedure is as follows:

  • Identify the reset button (white) next to the red LED.
  • With very light force push the button down (movement is very small - approx 0.5mm) and hold for approximately 3-5 seconds. A small click will be heard amd the LED will start to flash normally (one every second). The fan motor will also start. The reset button can now be released, and normal operation of the heater should then continue.
  • Excessive force will damage the reset button and cause the heater to be inoperable.


For NORMAL shutdown, simply turn the thermostat down to zero and put the selector switch to its CENTRAL POSITION (off). Then turn off the gas at the cylinder.
Make sure the gas is turned on at the cylinder before restarting.


  • If the heater is to be shut down for transporting, or for a prolonged period, or for maintenance, or repair then follow the following procedure:
  • With the heater running mormally close the valve on the gas cylinder and allow the heater to burn off any gas in the supply hose.
  • Move the selector switch to its central position (off)
  • Turn the thermostat to zero
  • Disconnect from the electical and gas supplies.

NOTE: If the gas is allowed to run out, or the shut down procedure above is followed then the DSI will have to be reset - see above.
