Application: Offices & Public Buildings

Aardman Animations, the creators of Wallace & Gromit, have recently moved in to their new headquarters in Bristol, where Jaga Heating Products has supplied £50,000 of trench heating throughout the building.

Any building – however innovative its layout and design may be – is only as good as the electrical and mechanical infrastructure that is fitted throughout. For Aardman’s office, Alec French Architects turned to Jaga to supply unobtrusive and efficient heating.  Jaga’s Mini Canal trench heating was chosen for the project due to its excellent value, efficient performance and space-saving benefits. As it is fully embedded into the floor, Jaga trench heating can heat a space without occupying valuable square footage, yet is more responsive and controllable than underfloor heating.

Maintaining the perfect temperature is important – especially when plasticine models are never too far away! To give the Aardman team localised control over the temperature in each area of the building, the output of Jaga’s trench heating can be adjusted by a wall-mounted thermostat found in every section.

The internal elements of the Mini Canal have been made ‘invisible’, using lacquered dark grey components. The only eye-catching element left, is the grille which can be perfectly tailored to match the floor, as  Jaga has the widest range of wooden, steel, stainless steel and designer grilles.
