Over and out…

Pentair Thermal Management has recently been specified to provide its Raychem Winterguard

frost protection and HWAT water temperature maintenance system to 20 Fenchurch Street (The Walkie Talkie).

The building’s hot water services are based in a hybrid system with recirculated pipework in the risers with a single pipe on each floor to the outlets. 2500m Raychem’s HWAT-R has been used to maintain the water at a temperature of 55° degrees and 30 HWAT-ECO controllers were employed to ensure accurate temperature control, economy setback features as well as the option of a periodic legionella prevention cycle. Frost protection on the exposed pipework on the rooftop is provided by Raychem Winterguard with Eco 10 controllers.

Designed by world-renowned architect Rafael Viñoly, 20 Fenchurch Street is a visually distinctive new addition to the London skyline. The building has been constructed with maximum efficiency in mind and developed by a joint venture partnership between two of the UK’s leading property companies; Canary Wharf Group and Land Securities. 20 Fenchurch Street provides 675,000 sq ft of top quality offices with unrivalled panoramic views of London.

Jon Jones commented;

“Pentair’s HWAT products were deemed to be the best systems for the job; they provided a flexible and economical solution saved services space and ensured the efficient provision of instant hot water to all outlets.”

The HWAT system was delivered and installed by Jointing Technologies and Western Thermal installed the Winterguard products.
