Based in Warrington, Cheshire, RAMP 1 is one of Europe’s largest indoor skateboard, BMX, scooter and inline sports facilities.

Spanning 50,000 square feet, RAMP 1 hosts nine different areas for beginners, under 10s, BMX riders and features a huge 112ft long bowl, a 40ft skateable tunnel and a 165ft Las Vegas themed street plaza.

Its premises have been carefully designed to incorporate a range of specialist equipment for all abilities to enjoy, and have been fitted with Tansun infrared heaters to keep its many visitors warm throughout the year.

Following discussions and a site survey, Tansun’s Apollo infrared heaters were chosen as the most suitable solution for the skate park. Eight Apollo A1K infrared heaters were installed and are controlled via localised switches for individual zones allowing visitors to control the heating in areas only when and where required, reducing unnecessary energy consumption.

Neisha Smith, Manager at Ramp1 commented, “The heaters are cost-friendly and easy to use and we simply switch them on when we need them. They benefit us as the café area can be very cold, so having the heaters there make customers feel warm and welcome. The skate park is a very large open space so we are finding the heaters work well, and we are very happy with the results. We would recommend Tansun heaters to others looking to achieve a more direct acting and efficient heating solution.”

The Apollo range was designed to solve heating issues in large and problem areas such as gymnasiums, warehouses, aircraft hangars and places of worship, and with more than 30 models to choose from, this established product has been proven by Tansun for 30 years or more. The heaters come with high power options, special long-lasting aluminium reflectors, a focused energy beam and a high intensity heat, which due to the highly engineered construction and design can’t be rivalled by other forms of heating for large open spaces.

Apollo heaters are available in 1kW to 18kW versions to heat areas up to 79sq.m, and they can be wall mounted or hung from the ceiling. Tansun infrared heaters also benefit from a two-year warranty.

Tansun infrared heaters offer maximum performance and very low running costs. They are designed with a ‘fit and forget’ reputation, are reliable, durable and virtually maintenance-free. Features include extruded aluminium heat sinks to keep heaters cool for better reliability. The shortwave technology is also noiseless, doesn’t contribute to air pollution and is compatible with energy saving controllers.

All of Tansun’s products are made in the UK and are designed using premium components. The company has been established for 35 years and pioneered the concept of infrared electric heaters alongside Philips technology. Tansun has the largest range of commercial, industrial and domestic infrared heaters in the world, providing maintenance-free, safe and healthy shortwave heaters for many different types of heating applications.
