Radiant heating is put through its capabilities at RAF Northolt

Flexible and zoned heating for five new hangars at RAF Northolt is provided by Nor-Ray-Vac continuous radiant-tube heating.

Space heating for the hangars in the new RAF Northolt site is provided by Nor-Ray-Vac continuous radiant-tube heating.

The installation is part of the Ministry of Defence Estate’s Project MoDEL, a £180 million investment and restructuring scheme to create a world-class 21st century ‘anchor site’ in London.

The redesigned RAF Northolt includes five new hangars.

Four of them measure 38 by 36 m and are fitted with six 38LR Nor-Ray-Vac burners in two temperature zones.

The fifth hangar measures 42 by 40 m and is known as the workshop hangar. It is heated by six 46LR burners in two temperature zones.

These heating systems provide flexible heating so the hangars can house small/medium-sized fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

Ducted air is supplied to the burners and radiant branch end vents to comply with the Crown Fire Standard for operational aircraft hangars.
