After a decade of renovation and a £35million budget, Birmingham Town Hall was re-opened to the public as a state of the art concert venue. Project engineers, Shepherd Engineering Services (SES) were faced with the challenge of finding a heating solution that would deliver high heat output with no discernable noise. It was also important that the solution suited the aesthetic of this nineteenth century classical building. In certain areas there was also a specific brief not to use radiators. In order to meet these specification requirements, SES opted for 22 of Jaga’s Clima Canal trench heaters.
Part of Jaga’s Top Performers range, the Clima Canal is a powered trench heating solution featuring near silent thermal activators that deliver high heat output from minimum dimensions. These discreet units can be built into the floor or wall to provide ultra-fast heating, cooling and ventilation and with a choice of colours and materials available, the grille can be chosen to suit any interior.
By combining Jaga’s light and responsive Low-H20 heat exchanger with a thermal activator, the Clima Canal can react to temperature fluctuations nine times faster than a normal radiator, allowing for precise climatic control. The low water and low mass heat exchanger reduces energy consumption by keeping the heating up and cooling down periods to a minimum. Heat is also only emitted when necessary so energy is not wasted by overheating a space and consequently less carbon emissions are produced.
For the foyer areas of the town hall Jaga provided 34 specially manufactured low surface temperature radiators, designed with a 45 degree sloping grille to prevent drinks or other items being placed and top and people sitting on them. The radiator meets with public building health and safety regulations and also benefits from Low-H2O technology at its core.
