TIMOLEON Underfloor Heating Offers Home Comfort For Adventurers At Morfa Bay

Timoleon underfloor heating is playing a key role in an energy saving solution for a well-known adventure centre in Wales.

At Morfa Bay Adventure in Carmarthenshire a Timoleon system provides full comfort conditions for a new building. Instead of high temperature water from a boiler, however, the system utilises supplies from the domestic hot water services plant - delivered to the Timoleon manifolds via a plate type heat exchanger.

Morfa Bay Adventure started life back in 1985 as a residential outdoor pursuits centre for children. School groups are still very much part of the core business, but the centre has expanded to offer a wide range of activities from half a day's rock climbing to a corporate themed event such as The Dragon's Quest.

On site facilities have also increased to match these developments. Morfa Bay can now offer accommodation for up to 150 guests.

New building
Recently a new 116m2 building was erected on the site to provide additional changing and shower facilities for guests, plus an office and a large multi-purpose area.

Uses will range from conferences to team-building exercises. But whatever the outside weather and however tough the sea kayaking, or assault course, guests will find a warm welcome in the new building.

It is heated throughout by a Timoleon underfloor system.

A solid floor construction was used, with loops of Timoleon pipework (see fixed in position on Metis ClipPlates above a layer of insulation material.

Timoleon’s new Metis ClipPlate solution not only provides a versatile means of retaining the pipe to the required layout, but the 10mm layer of expanded polystyrene integrated beneath each plate also guards against deformation – and provides extra insulation into the bargain!
In addition to providing a firm grip on the pipe the deep castellations on the Metis ClipPlate offer protection from site traffic and the screeding process.

The ingenious interlocking system holds Metis ClipPlates firmly together making them ideal for use with liquid screeds. The system also works well with Timoleon expansion foam and polythene gaiter, which both seals the floor edges and protects walls against screed expansion.
Loop ends are connected via discreetly located manifolds to the flow and return sides of the hot water plant. After pressure testing a screed was poured to integrate the Timoleon system into the floor structure and to provide a smooth, even surface for the final floor finish - tiles in the showers and changing areas and laminate elsewhere. There’s an added boost to safety in the shower area. The Timoleon underfloor heating will ensure the changing room floors dry quicker - further improving safety by reducing the chance of anyone slipping on a wet floor.

Water heaters
Hot water for both the 10 new showers and the Timoleon system is supplied by direct-fired Andrews water heaters. A plate-type heat exchanger is used as an interface to ensure constant supplies of water at around 40oC for the underfloor heating loops.

The low energy requirements of the Timoleon system integrate perfectly with this solution - reducing the carbon footprint of the new building considerably.

For control purposes the system is divided into three zones - conference area, office and showers. Supplies of warm water to the hidden pipework loops are modulated in response to the individual room thermostats.

The Timoleon system at Morfa Bay Adventure was installed by PBK (UK) Ltd for the builders Bassett and McGregor.
