Customers at a Toyota dealership in Scotland can now browse for their latest vehicle purchase in comfort following the installation of new fans specifically designed to optimise temperatures while reducing energy consumption.

The Linwood Toyota dealership, located on the Phoenix Retail Park in Linwood, is part of the Arnold Clark Group, Europe’s largest independently-owned, family-run car company. The Sales Manager at the branch is Jim McGregor who recognised that the heating within the showroom was resulting in hot and cold spots, a not uncommon occurrence, particularly in buildings characterised by large open spaces. He approached Kevan McKenna at Keets, based in a Glasgow, who recommended the new ZOO range recently launched by manufacturer Elta Fans.

The ZOO or ‘Zone of Occupancy‘ destratification fans have been developed to address the problem of heat rising which can result in the upper area of a given space being warmer than the lower area where it is actually needed. With the ever increasing focus on energy costs, the wasted energy from overheating a space to achieve the desired temperature in the occupied area is becoming more of an issue. By installing two fans in the roof space of the Toyota showroom, columns of air gently force the warmer air down to floor level, ensuring a much more even distribution of the heat and therefore significantly improving the environment for the Arnold Clark customers.

The investment will also bring benefits in the summer months. The ZOO fans will distribute air cooled by the air conditioning system much more evenly, again ensuring a more regular temperature and reducing energy consumption and therefore costs by improving efficiency.

Another feature of the ZOO range is the use of the FE2owlet impeller, a bladed aerofoil which features serrations on the trailing edge to reduce noise. This is further aided by the use of winglets located on each blade, ensuring that there is no intrusive noise, an important feature in a sales environment.

The fans are part of an ongoing development programme by Elta Fans to meet the requirements of new European legislation on energy efficiency – the Energy related Products (ErP) Directive – which will be implemented from 1st January 2013. For more information on the ErP directive visit Elta Fans dedicated site www.erpfans.co.uk

Further details on the ZOO Fan can be found at www.eltaselect.com or contact the sales team on 01384 275800, bs@eltafans.co.uk

Elta Fans is part of the £85 million Elta Group, a family of businesses with operations in six countries on four continents which, together with a network of international distributors, provides quality fans and related air movement equipment to customers worldwide.
