Customer Brief: To install low cost, effective heating, incorporating specific safeguarding and safety requirements of vulnerable ressidents
Heating for Care homes
The Priory has a requirement for providing comfort for its residents, whilst having an eye on installation, running costs and maintenance. However, vulnerable residents must also be safe from being able to harm themselves or be harmed by any furnishings in their accommodation and care homes in general also require heaters to meet certain additional safety standards.
Herschel Select XL panels were chosen because they could be fitted with specially-made surrounds to prevent any access to the sides, rear or internal elements of the panels – something almost impossible with other more traditional forms of heating. They could also be installed out of reach whilst being 100% controllable and also comfortably warmed residents: enabling Select XL to match the brief.
