The Heko heated tunnel is an appliance which is installed on the kitchen unit's worktop in order to temporarily place hot plates which are ready to be served. It can be directly installed onto the worktop in the form of a bridge or anchored to the ceiling with stainless steel tubes. Infrared heating elements keep the plates warm. The plate temperatures are preset, however upon request, it is possible to adjust these from between 30°C and 90°C. LED lights have been integrated into the heating element compartment in order to provide lighting to the worktop below.
