The Entertainer
Introduction to case study:

Harry Taylor of Ashton Ltd was approached by Mr Charles Creak of the company The Entertainer. The Entertainer is a retail business specialising in Toys "On-Line" and their premises in Amersham is its main distribution centre.

The premises already had a warm air system installed which had been designed as a Frost Protection system for the sprinkler system. This consisted of 2 Powrmatic 150 kW cabinet heaters. The customer reported that even this duty was not being well performed by the heaters because they were finding that the heat being produced was being absorbed by the building and the racking within. The building is 6,000 sqm and 14.8m high.

The Company had a requirement to heat a specific area of the building where their staff were packing items for distribution. Another limiting factor was that the gas supply to the building allowed no expansion of the gas systems.

Our solution:

The area requiring heat covers 40m x 20m of floor space and was full height. Years of experience has taught us that Warm Air usually works best for total heating coverage and radiant heating is the ideal solution for partial heating of premises. We therefore consulted with the Ambirad design department and they recommend a "herringbone" radiant system using 4 40kW heaters positioned above the packing area. We therefore suggested that we decommission one of the cabinet heaters and used the gas for that heater to supply these radiants.

We used Ambirad Vision 40LH heaters which are listed on the Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme . The installation was carried out September 2010 and the system was commissioned by the Manufacturers.

The customer has been very pleased with the performance of the system and has also reported that it has the added benefit of providing enough heat to do a better Frost protection job than the cabinet heater it replaced.

The system is maintained by Harry Taylor of Ashton Ltd under our service contract which allows for an annual service visit. Subsequent to this installation we have heated a second area of the building. This time we installed 4 Ambirad VS20 heaters.

We are very pleased with the warm air heating solution that we provided for GKN Aerospace. The installed system is both cost effective and energy efficient.
