Stanstead Primary and Nursery School, a school which prides itself on its eco credentials has installed an array of efficient fan convector heaters supplied by SPC.
The School, a popular educational establishment in the Rise Park area of Nottingham, installed two sizes of the TileVector heaters – 15 Duo and 21 Solo models – fitted with eco motors.
The heaters are mounted in the ceiling, freeing up valuable wall space in classrooms, and removing the possibility of the units being obstructed by tables, chairs and coats.
They also offer an important safety advantage in schools and nurseries as they are out of reach of the children.
Stanstead runs an eco-committee which looks at ways of improving sustainability and reducing its carbon impact; it has already won awards for its work and is aiming for Green Flag Eco-School status.
The eco motors in the TileVector range draw less power than conventional motors, yet the heaters are powerful, easy to control and quickly bring a room up to temperature, keeping teachers and pupils comfortably warm, aiding teaching and learning.
The units are finished with an egg crate grill and a black internal finish so the workings are barely visible when viewed from below.
SPC worked on the project with contractor Miller Freeman & Sons Nottingham Ltd. Director Tim Miller said a warm air system had been chosen because fan convectors offered greater control over the temperature in individual classrooms.
“The TileVectors are a good model; easy to fit, easy to maintain, very efficient and silent in operation,” he said.
