Application: Offices & Public Buildings

The Coin Street neighbourhood centre is a £9.55million mixed use development on London’s Southbank, providing the local community with much-needed facilities and resources. These include a day nursery, crèche, meeting and event space and offices to accommodate the community programmes run by the Coin Street Community Builders, a social enterprise and development trust.

Due to the fact that much of the building features floor to ceiling glazing, engineers required a space heating option that would provide high heat output but with an aesthetic to suit the architects’ overall vision for a modern, minimalist feel. Mechanical and electrical engineers, Max Fordham LLP decided Jaga’s discreet Canal trench heaters were precisely the solution they were looking for.

Recessed flush to the floor, the Mini Canal is a powerful trench heating solution that is ideal for eliminating the problems associated with large glazed facades such as cold downward air flow, condensation and hot and cold spots. With a minimum recess depth of just 9cm, this unobtrusive heat delivery option is perfectly suited for use in buildings with multiple storeys or floating floors.

Part of Jaga’s Energy Savers range, the Mini Canal benefits from the company’s innovative Low-H2O technology. Based on the concepts of low mass, low water the Low-H2O heat exchanger, which lies hidden behind the grille, has a reduced thermal mass allowing for a higher response rate and precise climatic control. This sustainable heating technology has been proven to reduce energy consumption, contributing to lower CO2 levels and cheaper fuel bills.
