Towering 192m above central Warsaw is the Daniel Libeskind-designed Złota 44 tower, which is the highest residential building in the EU. While adding sleek 21st century architecture to the Polish capital’s panoramic skyline, its steep glazed facades and curved walls could have made efficiently heating the building a challenge.
However, Jaga’s Mini Canal trench heating provided a powerful, ultra-responsive yet discreet solution. The system can be housed in floor trenches from just 90mm deep, making it perfect for use across multiple storeys and floating floors. Furthermore, the Mini Canal’s grilles are customizable, with over 25 finishes available in aluminum, wood and stainless steel.
At Złota 44, the support bars of the grilles were painted black, to better obscure vision into the trench unit and to harmonize with the modern interior decor. Złota 44’s design required many specially fitted, mitered corners, which Jaga supplies at standard angles of 90° and 135°, but are also available to 180° by special request. The Mini Canal’s Low-H2O technology saves on energy costs and reduces carbon emissions by 10-15% when compared to a standard steel panel radiator.
