PERIMETER SYSTEM LAYOUT PROVIDES EASE OF MAINTENANCE
GREEN BAY PACKERS
When the Green Bay Packers sought a solution for their practice facility they recognized a few challenges. The expansive volume of the space made them realize that any forced air solution would result in stratification sending warm air to the roof line. Anticipated temperature difference between floor level set point of 65 degrees would exceed 90 degrees at the roof where no occupants reside. Destratification fans posed issues for maintenance as well as additional energy consumption. Obviously an extremely wasteful solution.
The decision was made to utilize gas fired infrared heating as the preferred solution. By heating the objects instead of the air the players and playing surface would be more comfortable with less drafts. A perimeter system layout was designed to create ease of maintenance. Stratification is minimized by not directly heating the air resulting in anticipated gas savings in excess of 50%. A significant savings considering the cold Wisconsin winters.
