There are two types of heating appliance that were designed for overhead heating. The first shown below is the 'Stokes Heat and Light Unit' which combines gas lighting with a radiant heating surface.
The second unit known as the 'CP Raymaster' was developed as an efficient means of radiant heating using a row of plain jets combined with carefully shaped reflectors.
The illustration below shows a classic application for the Raymaster in a long airy building which would be expensive to heat with any other method. The use of radiant heating in one form or another is still widely used in industrial buildings.
