﻿Timoleon underfloor heating joins the features of high-tech primary school
Timoleon underfloor heating is providing safe and low-energy comfort for a progressive primary school in north London. Anson Primary School in Cricklewood has 360 pupils aged from 3 to 11 in 11 classes and a nursery. It is a leader in information and communication technology, with all classrooms equipped with fully interactive white boards.
The school has won a Home Access Award from the e-learning Foundation ‘for its social network NW2bFriends. Is has also been a winner of the ‘Beyond the classroom’ category of the ICT Excellence Awards. The school also has its own radio station.
To meet the needs of a school environment, the Timoleon design team has balanced low water temperatures with closer pipe centres to ensure fast response to control signals. There is no risk of overheating, despite the gains from all the IT equipment.
Systems have been installed in three new classrooms at the school, with each classroom being controlled as an independent zone. A solid floor construction was used, with loops of Timoleon pipework fixed in position with staples driven into a layer of insulation material, tested and screeded. The floors are finished with vinyl sheeting.
