The British Ironworks Centre is the leading tourism centre in Shropshire housing a varied collection of large and small metal works for home and garden, as well as a museum. The Centre is also home to a wide range of architectural structures and sculptures in its outdoor area.
A Powrmatic warm air heating system, installed by Smith’s Heating (Wales) Ltd, is helping the British Ironworks Centre to maintain comfortable temperatures for visitors while also protecting exhibits from condensation.
Mark Smith of Smith’s Heating (Wales) added:
“The new Powrmatic CPx floor-standing warm air heater serves the museum and two galleries and is controlled via a timer and central thermostat. We have installed two Powrmatic destratification fans to optimise heat distribution and energy efficiency, as well as a Midea Luna high wall mounted heat pump, also supplied by Powrmatic, in the office.”
Managing Director Clive Knowles explained:
“We are located in an exposed site open to high winds, so good temperature control is critical for the comfort of visitors and the artisans working on site, as well as protecting our priceless exhibits from condensation. We chose a Powrmatic heater as we already have one of their heaters at our Black Country Metalworks site, so we have around 30 years’ experience of the quality, reliability and longevity of the brand,” he continued.
