In the 1960’s the first heaters in the S-series were produced and in 1985 the M-series were certified for selling in Poultry & Pig Houses. A major development was the introduction of the G-series, a 12kW canopy heater, which has been in full production since 2000. It started with the G12 Asco and the G12 Maxi. Both are equipped with a Pilot Flame Ignition system and they operate at either Full Power or at Minimum power. This was followed by the G12E which is equipped with Electric Ignition. Characteristic of the G12 is its unique reflector: it is designed to spread the heat over a larger area instead of focusing the heat on a hot spot. The G12 heaters have a capacity of 12Kw or 42.000 Btu.
The roots of the sister company 'Gasolec America Inc.' go back to 1992. A company that was established for the sales of the Gasolec Products in North, Central and South America. Their office is located in Tulsa, Oklahoma (USA).
Energy efficiency was always a key objective within Gasolec and this was a major criteria in 1998 when Gasolec added monochromatic lighting through energy saving lamps to is product portfolio. This new line of products was expanded in 2015 by adding LED Lighting to our program.
In 2020 Gasolec partnered with the Belgium R&D company ‘Explorentis’. They have been a developer of LEDs in the entertainment industry for over a decade. The last couple of years Explorentis started focusing on the animal market as well. Gasolec and Explorentis will combine their knowledge and resources to keep creating new and innovative lighting systems for a sustainable future. From now on the new lighting systems will be under the new brand name ‘Prolucent’.
In 2021 we launched our new Prolucent lighting products for in the animal market. With a large variety of E27 LED bulbs and LED tubes. Available in different colors and power outputs. Our lighting systems are designed for usage in animal houses with floor level production (broilers / pullets / parent stock etc.) and multilevel production (aviary / cages = rearing / layers).
