Jaga has provided its Strada DBE radiators for The Brindley Lodge retirement development. Located five miles south-west of Manchester, Brindley Lodge is a retirement development
comprising of one and two bedroom apartments.
For Brindley Lodge, heat pumps were used to provide ample warmth whilst using minimal energy. In Jaga, Churchill found the most compatible partner for its needs. Jaga’s wide range of Dynamic Boost Effect (DBE) radiators perform at their best with low flow temperature systems, and Jaga’s vast experience and knowledge gained from implementing systems in similar scenarios made them the obvious choice.
After careful consideration, Tony Johnson, Jaga’s designated representative on the project, recommended the Strada DBE as the ideal solution. Its high output and responsiveness, safe to touch panelling and low carbon footprint makes it the perfect radiator for utilising the benefits of heat pump technology at residential developments. The Strada DBE incorporates Jaga’s Low-H₂O technology, with a super conductive and ultra-fast heat exchanger, for low energy consumption and maximum heat emission. The unusually high output that the Strada is able to provide from discretely sized units is vital as elderly people tend to need higher room temperatures to feel comfortable, yet don’t want to be burdened with an oversized unit to reach that output requirement.
In addition to their support in product specification, installation and commissioning, Jaga sought to ensure that the system could be put to best-effect by its end-users, as well as those tasked with the dayto-day operation of the building. This was achieved by providing product inductions for Lodge Managers, and thorough Homeowner Operating Instructions for the residents themselves.
