63 Preferred Heating Solution Success From Ambiente O N - S I T E / R E S O U R C E S Gaia’s low-temperature, wet underfloor heating has been installed as part of a project to turn a historic building into Cambridge's newest office space. Commercial property developer and investor, Mantle, has converted the former RAF Duxford Officers' Mess into modern office accommodation. Within the original structure, traditional wall-mounted radiators have been retained, in keeping with the listed status. However, a substantial new-build section has been added to the building, filling in unused space previously occupied by low-status areas and light-wells. Here, a contrasting modern structure has been erected with underfloor heating instead of radiators.

The InTec 34C model was selected for its high-efficiency and energy saving credentials. High quality specification was key for this project. The InTec 34C is Alpha’s flagship combi boiler and is perfect for heating the Harbour Green complex. It features a stainless steel heat exchanger, designed-in filling loop and seasonality valve to control flow rate according to the temperature of the incoming main. This allows for a higher flow rate in warmer months. The boiler also features a modulating high efficiency Grundfos pump and is fully ErP compliant. www.hpmmag.com August 2016 Gaia takes off at historic RAF Officers’ Mess enquiry number 901 ATAG Commercial has launched a new collection of brochures for its highly efficient range of gas condensing boilers enquiry number 904 This project consisted of the conversion of a former commercial building comprising office space in Romford into 77 quality residential apartments, spread across 4 floors.

The AmbiClip system selected as the best option for ease of installation and consistent pipework layout. The pipework was clipped into the ‘cliprails’, which were self-adhered to the top of the insulation layer, with the floor screed laid over the top of this after pressure testing and sign-off. enquiry number 900 Glass Radiators From Towelrads enquiry number 905 It’s happening again, trades and consumers alike are rushing to Underfloor Store to get their underfloor heating kits and accessories before the cold season hits and if you want to be ahead of the game now is the time to act! “Our servers have been going wild” reports Chris Spackman, head of ecommerce over at Underfloor Store. “We’ve had smart thermostats and electric underfloor heating flying out of the door and so much so the couriers have despatched a bigger vehicle to cope with demand”.

Towelrads Ltd have been working on providing innovative technology to help heat the home through their new Glass Radiator Range. Combining the use of infrared technology within an elegant frameless design, the Glass Radiators can provide energy efficient heat along with a cleaner, healthier atmosphere for medical environments and allergy sufferers. Compared to convector heaters which warm the air, infrared heat is absorbed by surfaces, objects and people allowing the heat to be retained within the room. Convention currents create small updrafts of air which moves dust into the atmosphere, this resultant air movement is eliminated through the use of infrared heating making the glass radiator range a perfect product for all allergy sufferers.
