WAVIN - Caistor Heritage Heats Up Thanks To Thermoboard UFH

Thermoboard underfloor heating (UFH) from Wavin has been installed as part of a high-profile refurbishment which is the focus of a prime time BBC documentary. Presented by property expert Sarah Beeny and broadcast this summer, the programme – part of the Village SOS series – followed the transformation of a former Methodist Chapel in Caistor, Lincolnshire, into a state-of-the art Heritage Centre with cafe, workshops and a library. The refurbishment of the centre was backed by the Big Lottery Fund under its Village SOS grant scheme.

As part of its FullSpec service, Thermoboard has provided both technical and design advice for the UFH systems chosen. The systems selected will ensure that the building is heated with optimum efficiency in accordance with the project’s requirements. Chris Simmons from Thermoboard explained: “Being selected to participate in this scheme is testament to our commitment and knowledge in delivering tailored and quality UFH solutions.

“In this instance, we suggested using a combination of a Staple system for the solid floor areas and Foiled Polystyrene for timber floating floors, which were able to provide the building with the U-values stipulated within current building regulations”.

The number of Thermoboard systems available means that UFH can be used in a wide range of floor constructions, whether existing or new floors, screeded or timber. UFH offers energy efficient ‘invisible’ warmth with savings on running costs compared to traditional radiator systems.

The UFH installation took just one day, and was filmed as part of the total refurbishment. The new Heritage Centre will celebrate Lincolnshire’s heritage, with exhibitions and collections reflecting the agricultural, social and cultural past of the region, whilst also celebrating new crafts and providing a centre for visitors to the area

Chris concludes: “Being invited to take part in the project is a huge opportunity for us to represent the industry in showcasing the many benefits of UFH, and it is an honour to be involved.”
