School Heating from DRU - the educated choice

DRU Kamara heaters in the new classrooms at Langdale School
DRU worked in partnership with MPH Building Systems

The education sector is entering an era of austerity. There will no longer be as much money for school building and refurbishment programmes as there has been in the past. At the same time, an increase in the school population means that there is increased pressure to accommodate even greater numbers of pupils.

Schools have historically dealt with this problem by erecting temporary classrooms. These are usually located on land adjacent to the school, such as playing fields. Today’s modular classrooms are of a much higher quality than in the past. They are well-insulated and conform to all building regulations, resulting in a safe environment for pupils.

It is rarely possible to connect these buildings to the central heating system, due to the difficulties in extending pipework and the capacities of existing boilers. Electric heating is also an expensive option, so the preference is for stand-alone, gas wall heaters.

A typical example is Langdale School in Staffordshire. This was recently extended with the addition of two classrooms, supplied by MPH Building Systems.

MPH selected DRU Kamara heaters. They offer high efficiency, rapid warm-up times and cool touch casings. For Langdale School, they are connected to the mains gas supply. However, they can also be run on LPG.

The heaters were installed by approved DRU contractors LGL Heating of Leyland, Lancs.
