Trace Heating at Manchester Town Hall is Going Well

Heat Tracing Installation Continues at Manchester Town Hall

Heat Tracing Project Update

T&D were successfully awarded the contract to install frost protection heat tracing to one of Manchester’s most prestigious and historic buildings. (We are also installing a leak detection system but more on that later.)

NG Bailey were awarded the multimillion pound contract by Laing-O’Rourke to carry out M&E works to the town hall extension and central library refurbishment.

T&D have an excellent track record with NG Baileys and have previously been employed to carry out heat tracing installations to several large scale projects including the Manchester Spinningfields redevelopment. NG Bailey Project Engineer Mark Roddy said "T&D were selected based on the previous work carried out for ourselves and also due to their willingness to work with us at design stage."

Heat Tracing For Frost Protection of Pipework

Self regulating heta tracing cables are being installed to chilled water, heating and domestic water services routed in unheated areas. This includes heat tracing to pipework in the attic spaces and basement areas. T&D provided a complete heat tracing design including heat loss calculations, insulation recommendations and electrical supply requirements.

Why Chose Self Regulating Heat Tracing Cables

  • Energy Efficient - Self-regulating heat tracing cable automatically adjusts its output according to the ambient conditions thus reducing power consumption
  • Safe - Cannot over heat due to self-regulating properties making it easy to apply to valves and pipe furniture
  • Maintenance Free - Automatic controls create a fit and forget heat tracing system
  • Long Lifetimes - Age Tested heat tracing for lifetimes in excess of twenty years
  • Versatile - Heat tracing can be used on both metal and plastic pipes and vessel
