These innovative patio heaters appeared on Wednesday’s BBC TV’s Dragon’s Den. Note the green patio heater on the far left which featured a small LCD screen at the top.
Eddie Middleton, owner of Westhawk who pitched the concept to the Dragons (the potential investors) didn’t walk away with any money this time around but interestingly during the programme he described the patio heater as a possible ‘entertainment device’.
The screen in the unit shown was kind of tiny but if you think about adding in speakers and music capability as well these heaters might work well for, say example, those smokers sitting outside clubs and bars.
We sort of liked it and it’s yet another good example of innovative street furniture.
