The Wexstar Heaters are designed to be used in an enclosed insulated space, so that the infrared heat emitted by the panels may be contained within the room. If used outside the heat would dissipate and it would not be nearly as efficient.
The Horses should be warmed up with the 800W panels just above them. As you mentioned the heaters will not fully heat the room completely as it is not insulated, but the horses will be able to feel the warmth from above. The heaters can also be mounted using a hang ceiling installation system with chains or wires, (these hardware parts may be available through Home Depot and are not included with the unit) This hanging system would allow to hang the heater higher or lower having it closer or further from the horses based on preference.
The angle at which it heats is about 165 degrees, although within an insulated room the whole room would be equally heated after some time. Like all heating devices, this will always vary depending on various factors such as room insulation, outside temperature, central heating, additional windows and doors, ceiling height, etc.
Yes. It gives off some heat but the IR heater doesn’t heat the room. The concept heats the person. This is heater makes you feel warm even with a fan moving air. Both heater and humidifier should be ok in a 15 amp receptacle.

It is constant heat, drawing 800 Watt. It can also be used with a Wexstar plug-in thermostat that it would turn the device on and off depending on the desired room temperature.

The heater takes about 10-15 minutes to reach the full panel surface heating temperature. Although you do feel a pleasant heat when you are close to the heater, it does require some time to heat the whole room. The heater produces a non-overwhelming gentle source of heat.
Wexstar heating panels use far-infrared heat; They produce 99.82% of its output in the 6 to 10 microns range. Wexstar's heating technology operate strictly within the healthy and therapeutic region of the invisible infrared spectrum. They can be used in a sauna room as long as the room is insulated and the wattage to room ratio is proper to the temperature you expect.
Wexstar Heaters runs at 110 Volts.
The front of the panel usually heats about 199.4 F / 93C degrees, the panel must get hot enough in order to heat the room properly. The heater can always be placed high on the wall or ceiling. The option in black will be available soon.
