Sports Venues

Experience has shown that the conventional air-based heating systems in sports involve a few factors, which do not fulfill the required criteria. They are moving around with a lot of background noise. And in this regard, a hot air cushion is being built under the roof in high-rise buildings. Furthermore, the energy costs for sports and leisure buildings are extremely high, since zone heating is almost impossible. This, in turn, means that although only one part may be used, the entire building needs to be heated.

The solution heats up gas-infrared heat

The effect of infrared heating is similar to that of solar radiation on cold winter days: despite low air temperatures, it is pleasantly warm in the sun. Infrared rays only transform into heat when they hit the skin, clothing and floor, therefore creating a feeling of comfort. This enables operation on, for example, only one tennis court, which saves a lot of energy.

Benefit of the gas-infrared heating system

Quick heating times 
Shortly after switching on the devices, a clear sensation of heat is noticeable. Due to the immediate readiness for operation of the infrared radiation heating, long heat up times are no longer necessary. This minimises the energy requirement for sports and leisure building heating and therefore the energy costs. 

More comfort 
The heat from gas infrared heaters is transferred in the form of electromagnetic waves. They travel through the air without heating it. The heat is therefore provided to players, the audience and the floor. The area beneath the building roof remains cool. This saves energy and enhances comfort. 

Cost benefits

  • Low investment costs for sports and leisure building heating
  • No heat accumulation beneath the roof
  • Lower air temperature with greater comfort
  • Heating of a playing field possible
  • Quick heating
  • Low and predictable servicing costs thanks to the Schwank warranty

Needless to say, useful accessories such as ball protection grilles etc. are obviously available for integrating into a Schwank heating system in sports venues.
