Gas engineers’ training school selects DRU Kamara heater to keep students warm

RF TrainingRF Training owns and operates its own City and Guilds accredited training centres in Birmingham and Manchester. The company delivers plumbing courses, electrician training, and gas courses, specialising in foundation courses for new entrants to the trades and those upgrading their skills, such as Gas Safe accreditation.

Its reputation means that it attracts trainees not just from across the UK, but from every corner of the globe. Its courses have included students from as far afield as Spain, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. Both RF centres are fully equipped and fitted out to the highest of standards. They benefit from large open plan workshops for practical training, dedicated classrooms for theory training and IT suites.

Having moved to the Jubilee Centre in Birmingham in 2011, RF Training had to find a heating system for its main classroom. There was no central heating, so the challenge was to find an efficient stand-alone solution that was capable of heating a spacious room with high ceilings.

Gas training manager Trevor Daniels drew upon his experience in the heating trade and selected a DRU Kamara 16 powered flue gas wall heater. This kind of heater is popular in churches, schools and other public buildings for high capacity space heating. It has a 100 mm diameter concentric flue, which is inserted through the outside wall, drawing air from outside for combustion. The heating has forced air convection for rapid warm up time and is thermostatically controlled. It can run on natural gas or LPG.

Furthermore, DRU Kamara heaters are 93% efficient, a major factor to consider for RF Training when the heater is being used every day throughout the winter and frequently at other times of the year.

The heater was installed by Martyn Bentley Heating of Burntwood, Staffs, and Trevor Daniels has expressed his delight in its performance and the high level of comfort that it provides for the students.
