Turtle Covers needed state-of-the-art heating system


Trading since 2004, Wrexham based manufacturing company, Turtle Covers were looking to move premises to facilitate their expanding business. Having found the perfect location their new warehouse needed a state-of-the-art heating system. 

The newly refurbished building had recieved significant time and investment from its original sate of disrepair and now offers a workshop with 45m x 24m space and a machine shop which is 25m x 14mm. The new facility will provide the opportunity to contine to improve their product offering. Marc William the owner of Turtle Covers was impress that the original Combat heaters had stood the test of time and wanted to stay with a British built product. Marc was also impressed that British built heaters were still obtainable, he also felt that the comminications between Combat and the installers AJS, was excellent and condusive to an effective installation overall. 

Combat Heating Solutions Ltd were able to provide the ideal replacement for the new building by installing 2 x ELC55-105 oil fired floor standing cabinet heaters in the workshop and 1 x ELO55-105 floor standing heater in the machine shop. Both the main workshop and sewing room were to be heated using preferred choice Kerosene.

Replacing the warm air system was the obvious choice for the workshop due to this being adjacent to the warehouse. due to the machinists being sat in on position for the majority of the day, in the sewing room, the decision was made to use a warm air heating system so that the air would circulate keeping staff warm and comfortable from head to toe rather than using a radiant system which wouldn't have heated the machinists feet whilst they were seated. 

To ensure there is minimal heat wastage Combat energy saving HVE de-stratification fans were installed in the warehouse, workshop and sewing room. The fans will circulate the heat that rises back down to ground level, reducing the temperature difference between the highest and lowest points and creating an even temperature distribution. 

The ideal Solution

A pre-mounted Combat control and electrical mains supply with a new 'Plug and Play' mains connector contributes to significantly reducing overall installation time and costs. The distribution heads have been redesigned for an aesthetically sleek appearance, as well as increasing the number of heads to improve the distribution of warm air throughout the building. 

In addition, de-stratification  fans are an ideal solution to assist with savings on energy costs and can also provide savings of up to 20% on running costs at optimum air change rate. 

Combat energy-saving de-stratification fans improve teh efficiency of the heater by keeping valuable warm air down at working level, thus reducing heat loos through the roof structure.  HVE fans can eliminate thermal stratification from your building. They work by constantly circulating and mixing the internal air until temperatures are balanced and equalised between the floor and ceiling - thermal de-stratification. This reduces the worksload for heating and cooling systems significantly and also provides considerable energy savings and reduced carbon footprint.
