New fan convectors for old — Caspian units from Smith’s Environment Products provided the essential flexibility for installing in a century-old part of a school in Cumbria

The flexible installation options of Caspian fan convectors from Smith’s Environmental Products came to the fore when fan convectors in the original 100-year-old part of Beckstone School in Workington needed replacing. Capita Symonds took the decision to replace the original units with 10 Caspian units and appointed local installer EPS Heating to carry out the work.

Steve Aitkin, managing director of PS, said. ‘The Caspians were ideal for heating up the old part of the school as they are adaptable and can be fitted in any type of building. Because of the layout of some of the classrooms, the units need to be boxed-in in some rooms to remain in keeping with the decor. This was tricky to do, but was made all the easier because the Caspians were so flexible and easy to install.’

Caspian units are available with outputs from 3 to 12 kW.
