Stelrad Radiators has been chosen by Center Parcs in Ireland. When the new Center Parcs launched in Longford Forest near Ballymahon, Co. Longford, good quality heating systems were needed to ensure families were comfortable in the cooler months of the year and that there were facilities for drying clothes after forest rambles. When it came to selecting the radiators, they chose the Vita Deco radiators from Stelrad. Eighty-five of these modern radiators now adorn the cabins across the site providing heat for the guests. They were installed by Walsh Mechanical in the bedrooms and lounge/dining rooms that are part of every cabin in the Parc.

“We are pleased our radiators were selected for this prestigious project in Ireland,” says head of marketing for Stelrad, Chris Harvey. “Our Vita series of radiators has taken off in a big way across the UK and Ireland with most installers selecting them for their new and replacement heating system projects and the selection of models makes it easy for specifiers and installers to choose the right radiator for the application.” or


The new Desborough Bowls Club in Maidenhead is benefitting from the expertise of Setpoint Solutions and manufacturer LG following the installation of a comprehensive heating, cooling and hot water system. Setpoint Solutions’ Jody Lees proposed the LG Multi V5 25kW high static ducted units for the job which cope well with long piping distances between condensers and fan coils. The bar lounge, changing rooms and office areas are served with LG’s ceiling mounted cassettes and heat recovery ventilation units which are linked to a 25kW LG Hydro kit which provides the low-pressure hot water heating circuit. The complete solution is operated by the LG Touch Screen Controller and maximises efficiency while also reducing running costs for the Club. “It was a really enjoyable project to be involved in and it was a pleasure to complete it ‘snag free’ within the seven-week timescale,” said Mr Lees. “The project threw up a number of challenges for us which we were able to meet straightforwardly by utilising the LG equipment specified for the job.”

Six TRIGON XL boilers from ELCO are providing the tenants of 7 & 8 Wellington Place in Leeds, with highly efficient, reliable heating and hot water. To fulfil the development’s requirements, three 500kW ELCO TRIGON XL floor standing condensing gas boilers were specified and installed in a roof top plant room to supply 7 Wellington Place, prior to three additional 570kW models being fitted in building number 8. The process was undertaken and managed by Wates Group. The TRIGON XL is available in seven models, with outputs ranging from 150-570kW, each offering benefits, including: ultra-low NOx emissions complying with class 6 (2018) requirements, an 8 bar working pressure, 30k flow/return temperature differential, superb seasonal efficiencies, and an ultra- compact footprint.

Matthew Bell, Wates Group said: “This was a prestigious project and therefore required a carefully designed, high quality heating system.”
