Jaga launches eGuide portfolio with “A Guide to Façade Heating”


Jaga Heating Products UK has released its first ever Electronic Guide which is available as a free download, intended to help architects and engineers make informed decisions when identifying solutions for façade heating applications.

Glazed facades are an extremely popular design choice, especially in high rise and prestige buildings where it is important to consider heating and cooling requirements as part of the design.

In response, Jaga wanted to provide architects, engineers and contractors with a comprehensive overview of façade heating, the options available and the considerations necessary to ensure the right product is chosen for the right application.  RIBA and CIBSE approved CPDs are already available and this latest resource will provide a useful reference guide for the designer.

Titled “A Guide to Façade Heating,” the free and informative download is the first in a series of Jaga eGuides, which will cover important heating and ventilation design problems.

Phil Marris, Managing Director of Jaga Heating Products (UK) commented: “Our new eGuide further cements Jaga’s role in the building service sector as a complete solutions provider. This is the first in growing series of free eGuides which we believe will prove informative and useful for all involved in the specification of heating and ventilating systems across all applications.”

While the guide discusses different approaches to façade heating, it focuses on trench heating technology as the ideal solution for mitigating heat loss through facades and preventing condensation  as well as effective space heating with cooling and ventilation when required.  Trench heating provides a discreet and effective solution without taking up valuable floor space or obstructing facades.
