AmbiRad is celebrating the successful installation of its 1,000th Nor-Ray-Vac system, which has been fitted inside Jarrett Indoor Cricket centre at Reed’s School in Surrey.

AmbiRad’s first Nor-Ray-Vac sports hall project was completed in 1993, on behalf of Mountain Ash School in Mid Glamorgan. The project required the installation of a discharge fan and six Nor-Ray-Vac burners. 

Since then, the Nor-Ray-Vac product has been redeveloped and refined several times, according to the company’s continuous development policy. 

The current Nor-Ray-Vac system can be modulated down to 50% of full load, ensuring increased economy, user comfort and overall efficiency. As the product is ETL compliant, it qualifies for the ECA scheme: an upfront tax relief, which enables businesses that actively invest in energy-saving equipment to reclaim all first-year capital allowances against their taxable profits.

1,000 Nor-Ray-Vac installations

For its 1,000th Nor-Ray-Vac installation, AmbiRad has provided a radiant heat sports hall solution for an indoor cricket centre, based in Cobham Surrey. The sports hall comprises five training cricket wickets, with six changing rooms and a spacious reception area. The first floor offers two viewing galleries and an external balcony space, which overlooks the adjoining sports field.

The building enjoys the aesthetic and economic benefits of a timber frame, with large glulam beams   sweeping across the hall’s interior ECB-approved cricket netting and flooring has been installed, in addition to lux lighting and AmbiRad’s Nor-Ray-Vac radiant tube system.

The system consists of three 32kW burners, arranged in one zone feeding into a manifold. Products of combustion are discharged into the atmosphere through a vacuum fan, which is located externally, away from the sports hall and its playing fields.

The radiant branches have been carefully co-ordinated with the lighting design and the arrangement of the cricket netting; the system layout eliminates cold spots, ensuring that the sports facility benefits from blanket heat coverage.

Radiant tube heating

Radiant tube heating boasts a number of advantages for sports environments: as the air remains relatively cool, it is conducive for active sports. 

Whilst air does absorb some of the heat omitted from active bodies and the building fabric at low level, it is not heated directly, so the occupants should be comfortable. However, radiant tube heating offers close control, ensuring that temperatures reduce immediately once the system is turned down or switched off.
