Pipelife - always part of your life
Due to their vast open spaces, large facilities such as industrial halls and sports halls are often associated with being uncomfortably cold in winter, or stifling hot in summer, while being difficult and expensive to heat or cool.
In a lot of cases, these associations are correct, especially when using convection heating and cooling systems. However, there are more efficient and economical solutions available to you. By having a hydronic radiant heating and cooling system in place, you benefit from a clean and comfortable set-up, that is also extremely energy efficient and flexible in design.
High ceilings, poor air circulation and forced-air heating systems all contribute to enhanced stratification and wasted energy. Regardless of the size or height of your industrial space you can evenly and efficiently heat or cool your whole area, using relatively lower operating temperatures. Resulting in reduced operating costs, and preserved energy and heat.
With heating and cooling pipes directly installed in the floor, wall or ceiling structure, there is no need for external heaters, radiators or air conditioning units, enabling you to use the entire industrial space as needed. This is especially advantageous when outfitting sports halls, so sports equipment can be placed as required, without having to consider where to put heating and cooling units.
As hydronic heating pipes are directly installed in the floor slabs below the working surface, it is possible to heat industrial floors where heavy vehicles and machinery are operated.
All Pipelife hydronic heating and cooling pipes are made from certified and reinforced thermoplastic for reliability and durability. Once installed, they need very little to no maintenance. You also have added protection with an EVOH oxygen diffusion barrier layer within the pipe wall, making them virtually impervious to gases, while safeguarding the whole system from potential corrosion.
Forced-air systems use convection to spread around heat, which requires a lot of energy to evenly heat up large facilities. This can result in cold spots and an unevenly heated environment. In contrast, underfloor hydronic heat gradually and evenly warms the ground surface, virtually eliminating cold spots and temperature fluctuations. This results in less dust and drafts, while keeping floors warm and dry at all times.
With its low temperature operating system, hydronic underfloor heating is an ideal choice if you are looking for a more efficient and ecological way to heat and cool your industrial workspace or sports hall. The system is also a perfect match for sustainable energy sources such as solar collection systems and geothermal heat pumps.
Plastic has a bad reputation these days. However, the use of plastic in and around buildings can be very beneficial not just for the user, but also for the environment, especially when compared to other materials.
