Situated in a converted 3,250m2 engineering facility, Base Jump is the largest trampoline park in the South East of England, with 175 person capacity and the first in the UK to have trampoline ‘half pipe’.
Base Jump’s Jason Hall recalled: “The metal construction of the facility means that heat losses are quite high so we need heating in the winter, but when we moved in the existing heaters were not working. We therefore contacted Heventech to propose a solution.”
Powrmatic NVx warm air heaters are helping to ensure comfortable conditions for trampolinists and spectators at the Base Jump trampoline park in Rayleigh Essex. The units were specified and installed by Heventech Mechanical Services Ltd.
The NVx warm air heaters at Base Jump are controlled by a Powrmatic MC200 on each unit to maintain a minimum temperature of 15°C, which is supplemented by body heat from the activities in the space – capable of raising the temperature by another 4-5°C. The controller also provides the option of free cooling in the summer using outside air.
Heventech’s Lee Wilkinson added: “We identified that four Powrmatic NVx warm air heaters would provide sufficient capacity to replace the previous six heaters in the building. These have been mounted along one wall and, combined with the existing destratification fans, provide even temperature distribution throughout the space.
“It was also important that we could provide a solution very quickly to ensure the facilities were up and running on schedule, so Powrmatic’s ability to deliver quickly from its factory in Somerset was also a key factor,” he added.
“Since the new system was installed we have enjoyed a very pleasant environment and the controls are very easy to use, so we are very happy with the service provided by both Heventech and Powrmatic,” Jason Hall concluded.
