A popular budget horse solarium with two 1.5kW Baskzone® watersafe heat emitters and a watersafe timer controller. Easy to install and simple to operate. Runs off a standard 13 amp fused outlet. Inexpensive to run. Can be upgraded at any time to the Aintree specification by adding another Fontwell.

First launched in 2008 the Fontwell has always been a popular starter solarium. The latest model uses two of the latest watersafe BaskZone® heat emitters developed by Equine SunSwitch specifically for use with horses. The heat dispersion is wide and even, ensuring no uncomfortable hot spots. These innovative emitters have a Cool-Touch casing, allowing you to adjust the angle during use if required. The front safety grille is removable for cleaning as necessary.
