Rifle club

Customer brief: To heat an ‘impossible to heat’ area and resolve the damp problems to bring back members.

A solution for an ‘Impossible to heat’ area.

Background
There is a rifle club under the south pontoon of London Bridge. During extensive refurbishments both the Marylebone Rifle & Pistol Club and the Stock Exchange Rifle Club took the opportunity to review their heating situation.
They had a considerable damp issue from being so close to the river which meant the ranges were cold and members were leaving.

Solution

• Far Infrared panel and round ceiling-mounted heaters were installed.
• Other traditional heating systems would simply heat the air, dissipating down the entire range. This would result in huge wasted expense and would be detrimental to the equipment and ammunition.

Results

  • The cold & damp issues have been resolved
  • The actual fabric of the building is no longer cold; previously created perfect conditions for condensation
  • Staff & members enjoy a constant, comfortable temperature
  • Thermostatically controlled
  • Cost efficiency greatly improved.

Application
