Heating solution for college destroyed by fire

Costello Technology College, Basingstoke

Following a disastrous fire which destroyed the maths and technology blocks at Costello Technology College in Basingstoke, Vulcana worked through the Christmas period to manufacture enough Kestrel heaters to heat 12 prefabricated buildings erected on the college playing fields in time for the start of the new term.

When educational premises are damaged by fire, flood or harsh winter weather, Vulcana is always quick to respond and deliver a suitable and cost-effective school heating solution.

Vulcana’s Kestrel room-sealed gas-fired fan convector heaters are ideal for schools and colleges as they have an integral thermostat where all the controls are contained inside a lockable compartment and can be supplied with safety guards making them one of the best child-safe heaters available on the market.

Unlike most gas heaters which burn oxygen from the room, Vulcana’s Kestrel heaters do not take air from the interior to support combustion, so they provide long-lasting, efficient and comfortable heating without reducing room air quality.
