Physics lab enjoys radiant heating

Efficient and responsive heating in this school physics building is provided by S&P radiant-heating panels.

Radiant heating panels in the ceilings of the new physics building at Loughborough Endowed Schools provide quick-response and efficient space heating using low-pressure hot water. Supplied by S&P Coil Products, this method of heating minimises vertical temperature gradient and enables the thermostat setting to be reduced by about 3 K for the same level of comfort.

These radiant ceiling panels consist of a corrugated aluminium panel of patented design and a continuous copper tube on the upper surface. Insulation on the back of the panels prevents heat being lost into the ceiling void.
