Sheffield-based underfloor heating specialists UK Underfloor Heating announce that they have helped to provide a new heating system for tigers housed at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park, as part of their recent new enclosure installation.
The new underfloor heating system is a bespoke design installed and overseen by engineers with the firm that will allow for the Park’s tigers to benefit from radiant heating technology during colder months, in the hope that it will prove to offer them much comfort to the animals during the approaching winter months. The system was installed and tiger-proofed over a series of days in close conjunction with the Park’s representatives, with UK Underfloor Heating’s James Priestley acting on behalf of the firm to survey what the installation would require.
The installation required unique pipework and the efforts of several team members, overseen by expert installer Daniel Knight from UK Underfloor Heating who was happy to work with Lincolnshire Wildlife Park for such a unique cause. “We jumped at the opportunity to design and install our system into these enclosures,” advises James and Daniel, “And as it was for a very good cause, we decided to design, supply and install this free of charge.”
Engineers fitted and tested the system for potential pressure flaws and water flow, and as a result a fully-functional underfloor heating system is now in place for tigers at the Park – one which can be operated and overridden manually by Park staff and will also activate based upon a remote floor sensor and thermostat which turns the underfloor heating loops on and brings on the brand new boiler system. Lincolnshire Wildlife Park are pleased with the results of the consultation and hope that the system will provide their tigers with much-needed warmth during the colder months ahead.
UK Underfloor Heating were extremely grateful for the hospitality shown by the Park for their work, and were treated to free refreshments during their consultation. The Park showed the team immense positive hospitality during their visit, helping the engineers to feel at home while setting up the new system.
Lincolnshire Wildlife Park are pleased with the results of the consultation and hope that the system will provide their tigers with much-needed warmth during the colder months ahead. UK Underfloor Heating were delighted to have been able to meet the tigers that were to be moving into the enclosures – and they even had the chance to feed the animals ahead of enjoying their new, bespoke heating system.
Sheffield Born CEO Mr. Steve Nichols said: “After contacting UK Underfloor Heating for advice on getting new underfloor heating systems, we are delighted with the free consultation and installation services they provided for our ‘state of the art’ world of tiger houses. I do have to say a massive Thank You to all the guys who worked relentlessly.”
