GKR Karates' Requirements

Due to heat rising upwards, the mezzanine floor becomes very warm and uncomfortable for the staff working in the open-plan office space in the summer months.

OKEL’s Solution

Considering the working environment and that most of the work taking place on the upper mezzanine floor is office-based tasks; we ruled out the introduction of an evaporative cooling system to cool the area as noise from the coolers and supporting extraction fans would be an unwelcome distraction for the office-based staff.

Instead, we chose to install a high-efficiency Mitsubishi high static ducted system that will provide the layout of the mezzanine floor with a more effective and even spread of cooling (and heating in the winter months) as opposed to a standard split system that is more favourable in office space with standard ceiling heights.

GKR Karate Results

The air conditioning system was fully installed to schedule, and a time to suit the customer so it didn’t interfere with the customer’s stock-taking plans.

The morning following the completed installation, the customer commented to OKEL on how much of a difference the new air conditioning units were making and how impressed the customer was with the installation and tidiness of the team carrying out the installation.

Why Choose OKEL?

With decades of combined experience in the commercial heating industry, we understand that no two premises are alike.

The specific requirements needed by each industrial or commercial building can make a huge difference to the type of heating solution that will be both cost-effective and energy efficient.

Every new installation begins with a detailed site inspection by a member of our team to assess the building and to determine the individual needs of your business.

We carefully consider operational and environmental factors before handing off to our design team to put together a hand-tailored warm air heating solution that meets all your unique requirements.

When you appoint OKEL to deliver your warm air system installation, you are assured a personal approach.

You will be assigned your own project manager who will be your single point of contact throughout the installation process.

This ensures you will be kept informed of all important developments from the initial consultation through to the final handover of the project.

Our installation teams consist of both Gas Safe and NICEIC commercial heating engineers and whether you are wanting a warm air heating system fuelled by natural gas / LPG or perhaps considering a move away from gas and to an electrically powered warm air alternative, we have a warm air heating system to suit you.

We take on all manner of warm air heating system projects, for companies large and small. However extensive the job, you can depend on us to provide the same high standard of service.

We have worked with SMEs operating at a local level, as well as national blue-chip companies. We always deliver quality installations, and your project will be no exception.

One of the most efficient ways to warm up factories or warehouses, as well as large-scale retail premises, is the installation of warm air heating systems. We are committed to providing our clients with solutions that help to minimise both their energy costs and their environmental impact.

Each of our warm air heater models are ERP compliant in accordance with the latest eco design directive and fully modulating which means the heaters will only use the amount of gas necessary to maintain the desired temperature throughout the working day. See how we helped Fortress Technology Europe support its commitment to the environment, with our electrical warm air heaters. 

Every one of our commercial heating engineers has been part of the industry for a minimum of 20 years and are fully trained and qualified to deliver exceptional results.

As well as having relevant, hands-on experience in their field of expertise, they are all registered with the relevant regulatory bodies for the heating industry, including GasSafe, and NICEIC.

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
