Dunham-Bush trench-heating systems were specified for Building 3 at Advanced Manufacturing Park’s Technical Centre in Rotherham to offset heat losses and down draughts from the glazed facade. This building provides flexible offices and workshops for up to 11 tenants involved in industries as diverse as aerospace, automotive, marine, petrochemical and power generation.

Russell Entwistle, associate mechanical engineer with M&E consultant WYG, explains, ‘The intention was to run continuously around the perimeter of the office space. The HTA units offered a continuous grille solution, which resulted in a high-quality finish that integrated well within the raised-floor system for the office.

In total, 190 m of Hydro-Course was installed by Wytek Electrical & Mechanical.

This trench system is only 240 mm wide and 150 mm deep, with an anodised satin finish and stainless-steel cross-bladed grilles and trim.

Flow and return temperatures are 70 and 50°C, respectively, to maintain a room temperature of 21°C.
