IRSAP was founded in 1963 in Arquà Polesine in the Province of Rovigo. The company began its activity with the production of radiators in pressed steel. Three years later in 1967, Irsap launched TESI. Tubular radiators were still unknown in Italy at the time and IRSAP was the first in the market, in this way paving the way for the future success of the multi-column radiator par excellence. In 1981, Irsap came out with NOVO, the first bathroom towel warmer radiator produced in Italy. NOVO embodied an innovative way of perceiving radiators as no longer only heating elements but also as décor accessories of their own, clearly illustrating the meaning of the new brand designer radiators: TERMOARREDATORI®. Interior décor with heating elements permits the personalization of the home or office with a range of colors, shapes and sizes. This approach has accompanied IRSAP throughout its constant evolution. IRSOL was founded in 1978 for the production of solar energy systems and electric radiators. In 1996, IRSAP entered the air-conditioning sector with the proposal of a complete range of products. This was the birth of designer air conditioning: CLIMARREDATORI. In order to further consolidate its presence in the air-conditioning market, IRSAP purchased Rhoss, a historic company in Italy's Friuli region in 2000.
The continuous expansion of the range, the search for colors always in the latest and greatest demand, and the many variations in dimension available all provide more than 500,000 different possibilities in offering each customer a radiator that completely satisfies their various needs for truly customized climate conditioning. The TESI Collection is the reinterpretation of a radiator that ever since the early '70s has represented the archetype of domestic heating enriched with unprecedented finishes, forms and functionality. Sensations go beyond the merely visual to embrace the sense of touch, going from smooth to shiny and bright, from a velvety feel to a subdued matte look, from gold to silver and platinum. The feeling of warmth increases with the special surfaces available in a range of different colors and gives hard, cold steel a delightful 'rubber-surface' feel. The same levels of quality combined with highly expressive design distinguishes the Officina delle Idee collection, which has recently expanded with the arrival of new proposals vaunting strong personality and scenic presence.
The efficiency and energy savings ensured by Irsap products provide the response to modern needs for comfort, aesthetics, practicality, and green spirit while generating wellness in complete safety with respect for the environment. Ongoing research and orientation towards the production of "sustainable" products have always represented the Group's values. The extraordinary process of technological growth has brought IRSAP to develop the ideal products today for latest-generation construction projects, the most modern low temperature systems, and others offering elevated performance in line with the requisites of the latest Green building techniques. The Irsap Group itself has embarked on the virtuous path of green development and is now taking important steps forward in various directions, perhaps the most significant of which is energy savings at its Italian productive units. These plants satisfy around 70% of their power requirements today using renewable energy sources thanks to photovoltaic systems created preciously for the purpose that provide energy reductions in carbon dioxide emissions of approx. 5 million kilograms every year.
Irsap is an Italian leader today and one of the leading producers in the European heating market. The Irsap Group unites companies and trademarks that have been working all over Europe for years with productive units in Italy and Rumania and sales offices in France, Spain, UK. Each Group member places itself at customer's complete service for the design of innovative solutions, and working together they make Irsap the Italian leader and one of the points of reference in the European heating sector. The strength and versatility of the Irsap Group lies precisely in its capacity to capitalize on all these different experiences and optimize specific skills and knowledge in order to offer top-notch integrated services.
Lively creativity and ingenuity express themselves today as yesterday in continuous research for avant-garde technologies, innovation and the development of new products, shapes, surfaces and finishes. This extraordinary process of technological growth and skill in the science of materials lets IRSAP offer products that save energy, lower costs, and respect the environment. Remarkable thermal efficiency and high heat output make IRSAP radiators the ideal solution for the latest-generation building industry and the most modern low temperature systems. Continuous research in design and close collaboration with prestigious design studios and university institutes led to the creation of "design radiators" years before radiators were considered elements of décor in their own right.
