Name of Project: Thermo King, Galway
Mechanical Contractor: Tim Kelly Group
Heating Solution: Zehnder ZBN Radiant Panels
Thermo King is a manufacturer of transport temperature control systems for trucks, trailers, shipboard containers and railway cars as well as HVAC systems for bus, shuttle and passenger rail applications. Thermo King also manufactures the highly successful “TriPac” hybrid auxiliary idle reduction and temperature management system for truck cabs.
Thermo King Europe opened in Galway, Ireland, in the 1970s. Due to the age of the building and a poorly insulated roof the heat loss was substantial. Combined with the size of the building, it’s very long production lines and requiring a heating solution with a quick response, Radiant Panels were the obvious solution.
Versatile worked closely in conjunction with Mechanical Contractor, Tim Kelly Group. The Zehnder ZBN panel was decided on, and supplied by Versatile.
Radiant Panels in their nature are 100% radiant which in this environment was more beneficial than using a traditional warm air system. As an industrial panel that can be operated on a one flow and return of up to 100m, therefore keeping pipe work to a minimum – it was the perfect solution.
Suitable for all commercial and industrial applications, Zehnder ZBN Radiant Ceiling Panels provide an efficient, economical and energy saving heating solution.
