The Benefits to the Retail Sector

Our Knowledge

We have a dedicated Corporate Solutions team who have created a range of documents to keep you informed of any changes in legislation, new product features or simple industry information. We also run advisory seminars and training tailored to suit the requirements of the retail sector.

Our Technology

We have a range of heating, cooling and ventilation equipment that meets the essential requirements of a wide range of retail buildings. These all include reliability and innovation as standard, whilst providing a comfortable environment and helping the building and its operators to reduce running costs and carbon emissions.

Simple & Easy Maintenance

Innovative product developments such as easy lowering grilles help keep your equipment performing to its optimum capability. We have also developed comprehensive service and maintenance programmes to ensure your equipment operates at maximum efficiency throughout its lifecycle.

Dedicated interfaces for efficient control

We have dedicated centralised controllers designed for energy efficient control of our HVAC systems. Our advanced range can also control third-party equipment such as lighting and alarms, allowing for easy, advance saving and energy metering across the whole building. With our Remote Monitoring Interfaces, you can also control and monitor all systems via a PC or smart device.

A Perfect Match

Working with the industry

We understand that retail has two parallel challenges: providing customers with a comfortable shopping experience and, simultaneously, meeting today’s carbon reduction and energy efficiency requirements. We are here to offer you a range of solutions that can support you every step of the way.

We have been working in partnership with the British Retail Consortium (BRC) as a contributor on the Climate Action Roadmap Pathway 2, which aims to help retailers to operate efficient sites powered by renewable energy.

HVAC solutions to ventilate your store

Without effective ventilation, internal spaces can quickly become stale and polluted. Poor air quality can also lead to a build-up of mould and rot harming the fabric of your building. Our range of ventilation products have been designed to deliver fresh air supply to a building whilst simultaneously extracting stale air in the most energy efficient manner possible.

We also offer advanced air curtains which enable shops to adopt and open-door policy whilst retaining indoor temperatures and stopping external pollutants.
