The Strathclyde Fire & Rescue (SFR) Training Centre is an educational facility spread across 30 acres in Clydesmill, Scotland. Designed with sustainability and low energy usage in mind, the SFR Training Centre incorporates a large number of eco-friendly features – including wind turbines, biomass boilers, a rainwater harvesting system, and Jaga heating products.
As a result of these sustainability initiatives, the SFR Training Centre’s main academic building has been awarded a prestigious ‘Excellent’ rating by the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM). Jaga provided 500 meters of Mini Canal DBE trench heating to run alongside the large glass panels fitted throughout the expansive reception and the teaching rooms.
This perimeter heating system recirculates and heats the cool air next to the glass, creating a continual warm ‘barrier’ and ensuring a comfortable learning environment for all occupants, even in the cold Scottish winters.
The Mini Canal DBE uses Jaga’s Low-H2O technology and has also been fitted with Dynamic Boost Effect (DBE) technology. The result of the combination of these two Jaga technologies is quick-response, efficient and powerful heating.
