Ventilation specialist S&P UK has added a flat-packed heat recovery unit to its range, with the first being supplied to the Victoria & Albert (V&A) Museum in London.
The RHE series comprises a range of highly efficient heat recovery units with the flat-packed range delivering up to 3m³ per second of fresh air, enabling the units to be installed in to tight or difficult to access locations.
S&P UK were approached by design consultants Webb Yates, who were looking for a heat recovery unit to supply to the V&A Museum which could provide enough airflow whilst being able to fit through a small access area to the required location.
On reviewing the air flow requirements for the museum and the space provided, S&P UK recommended the RHE 2500 which can be transported in 15 separate components weighing up to 34kg per piece.
Lee Page, sales director at S&P UK, said: “This project was so unique as we were given such a tight space to work with. It was the perfect opportunity to showcase our new flat-packed version of the RHE series which could be sent through a window and built within one of the small museum courtyards.
“These units are usually designed to be located inside a building, however due to the lack of space available within the museum, the unit had to be located outside and so we adapted the unit accordingly to meet the client’s requirements.”
Engineers build the units on site once all components are in situ
S&P UK provided a full site survey including the recommendation of the appropriate product. Its engineers then attended site to build the product from flat-packed form, returning for controls set-up after the installation.
Mark Freeman, electrical design engineer at Webb Yates, said: “We were referred to S&P UK who were quick to establish the appropriate unit for this project having been provided with full details of the air flow requirements together with the measurements of the space we had to pass the unit through. S&P UK provided an impeccable service throughout with attention to detail from the build of the unit itself right through to the aftercare of the product.”
