Raychem Offers A Life of Luxury

Scampston Park LodgesA luxury holiday lodge park described as the destination of choice for the discerning holiday home owner has installed Raychem FrostGuard to ensure its guests continue to enjoy the luxury they deserve.

Located in grounds adjacent to Scampston Park, one of the finest regency country house stately homes in North Yorkshire, the Scampston Park Lodges development is destined to be the North of England's finest holiday lodge park. It has seven lakes giving almost every lodge a water view. From its original conception and throughout the design process, every detail has been considered, right down to ensuring that the winter weather does not cause problems for the holiday home owners.

Jonathan Jones of Tyco Thermal Controls says: "To protect against potential problems with freezing and burst pipes at Scampston Park, the estate manager was keen to find an energy efficient solution that was easy to install and would not require continuous maintenance and repairs. FrostGuard product fitted the bill perfectly."

Raychem FrostGuard is a pre-terminated, self-regulating, frost protection cable which was installed on the raising water supply and heating pipes of the holiday lodges. Simple to install, the product comes in ten sizes to suit most application requirements and is pre-installed with an electrical cable and plug for quick and easy connection to the power supply.

At the heart of the system is the self regulating cable which can adjust its output dependant on the ambient temperature. Therefore more heat is generated automatically when it is needed to protect the pipes from freezing and less heat is generated in warmer ambient conditions. As a result the lodges will benefit from substantial energy savings when compared to conventional cables which have a constant heat output and energy consumption.

Jonathan continues: "In a luxury development of this type it is important to ensure that the home owners benefit from the high levels of comfort which they will undoubtedly expect. The installation of Raychem FrostGuard means that burst pipes will no longer be a problem and the guests can enjoy the peace and tranquillity which is offered by the park."
