The new school which is directly opposite SPC’s offices is one of the oldest independent Muslim schools in Britain, the LIA was established in 1981 and started with just seven girls of secondary age. It now provides education for over 750 pupils, aged from 3 to 16, and has outgrown its current premises at 320 London Road, Leicester.
Designed by Pick Everard and installed by Robert Prettie, the powder coated radiant panels have been installed in the suspended ceiling of the school and are virtually unnoticeable freeing up valuable wall and floor space.
The Thermatile Plus radiant panels have a unique linear strip panel joining system meaning they can be fitted by nearly anyone – cutting down on extra labour costs. They also have a composite aluminium sheet structure, providing a rigid flat panel which can be made to any specified size, shape and colour to enhance the architectural design of a room.
The ceiling mounted devices emit radiant heat to warm room occupants directly and the air indirectly, resulting in lower heat losses and energy savings. The radiant panels can either be suspended just below a ceiling, or fitted into a suspended ceiling.
