9 11 Memorial Museum

Application: Private & Public Buildings

The National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York was completed in 2014 and designed to resonate within the context of its surroundings. With floor to ceiling glass windows providing light and views across the site, it was necessary to devise a customised solution that allowed for heating within the concrete floor. This was one of the reasons for choosing the Jaga Mini Canal trench heater.

The Mini Canal reacts quickly to any fluctuations in temperature, and its Low-H₂O technology cuts carbon emissions by 10%. A super conductive and efficient heating system, the Mini Canal features a low water content and ultra-fast heat exchanger, which ensures maximum heat and low energy consumption. Its minimal recess depth of 9cm makes it ideal for buildings with large windows to eliminate any potential drafts, without blocking views.

Designed by Snøhetta, the pavilion has a LEED Gold certification and is therefore in accordance with the Memorial’s sustainability guidelines. The building is optimised to perform with minimal energy, which the installation of Jaga’s trenched heating system helps to achieve, while also reducing operating costs.
