MHS Radiators help heat Lytchett Minister School

May 31, 2016

70 New Ionic traditional cast iron column radiators from MHS Radiators have been installed in the Grade II Listed Manor House of Lytchett Minster School in Dorset. The new products were fitted as part of an extensive heating replacement project at the comprehensive school, which currently has over 1,400 students.

The radiators were installed by Watertite Heating Limited of Yeovil on behalf of Dorset County Council, having been specified by Bournemouth-based building services consulting engineers, Mabey Francis. The project was carried out over two years; the boilers and distribution pipework were fitted in 2014, prior to the radiators and second fix pipework being added in 2015.

Commenting on the installation, Andy Cope, Director at Mabey Francis, said: “Generally, the New Ionic radiators replaced existing cast iron column models, although they also replaced modern steel radiators in some areas. The MHS radiators helped restore the original character of these areas to the satisfaction of Dorset County Council’s Historic Environment Manager, ensuring the scheme was granted Listed Buildings Consent.”

He continued: “Having worked with MHS Radiators for many years, we have an excellent relationship and considerable confidence in the company’s products and services. The New Ionic range was chosen due to its traditional cast iron construction and appearance, while it also came out ahead when we cost-tested the products against equivalent, high quality alternatives.”

The versatile New Ionic cast iron column radiator combines modern reliability with time-honoured styling and comfortable heating. Perfect for both domestic and commercial applications, the radiator can either be wall-mounted or floor standing, as well as painted to complement a multitude of colour schemes.
