Flooded Gym in Downtown Calgary
This downtown Calgary gym saw a little more perspiration than expected one evening. A radiant heat line burst resulting in water pouring out of a 5th floor ceiling and flooding out a downtown office workout space. Radiant heat has many advantages, it is more efficient than forced air as it reduces the losses due to ventilation and radiant heat actually heats up the objects within a space as opposed the air surrounding the objects, resulting in longer lasting results. Water can not only be harmful to the physical property but it also has the potential to damage the electrical inside the workout equipment.
