"Our NOVA® product family provided the optimum specification for this project, at over 25m high the mast supported double 350mm and 500mm diameter chimney is yet another successful SFL NOVA® custom system. Manufactured by SFL in the UK, the system was designed and installed by our partners JRF Chimney Specialists of Glenrothes, Fife. "

Paul Fox, SFL

Background

The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow provides Scotland with the best possible opportunities to enjoy cycling in a world-leading facility with an optimal indoor climate. Providing a chimney system designed to suit the overall look and architecturally significant design was a primary focus when specifying the system requirement of the HVAC flues. The high efficiency condensing boilers required two separate chimneys to maintain optimal performance, the 25m minimum discharge height required a support mast design whilst the exterior colour was specified RAL 9006 White Aluminium. 

Solution

JRF Chimney Specialists were approached and asked to formulate an elegant, efficient, and cost-effective proposal. Working in conjunction with SFL a NOVA® twin wall flue system was specified, full technical details were calculated and confirmed enabling the supporting mast structure and associated civil groundworks to be incorporated into the overall design. Serving these high-efficiency boilers a double stack and mast supported SFL Nova® Twin Wall chimney system has been designed and installed by JRF Chimney Specialist to fully meet the project consultant specifications and calculations.  

Result

The twin Nova® chimney systems and custom parts were manufactured and powder coated White Aluminium, overall, the height of the system being 25.5m comprising of 350mm and 500mm diameter chimneys. Once the installation and system commissioning was successfully completed the Velodrome HVAC systems operate effectively and efficiently throughout all the Scottish seasons.
