An efficient solution for a refurbishment project to provide safe water temperatures at outlets

Nestled on the outskirts of the charming North Yorkshire market town of Knaresborough, The Knaresborough Inn offers a picturesque setting with 57 bedrooms amidst ancient walkways cobbled alleys. This recently renovated hotel, set on landscaped grounds, provides an array of amenities including a fitness centre, pools, spa facilities, and an award-winning restaurant that overlooks beautiful terrace gardens.

The project

The new coat of arms for The Knaresborough Inn seamlessly blends iconography representing the building's history, the charm of the quaint town, and the spirit of its refurbishment. This remarkable transformation required a plumbing solution that not only delivered effective temperature control but also maintained a discreet profile to uphold the aesthetic allure.

For M & E Contractors Quartz Electrical & Mechanical Services Ltd, prioritising safety and reliability in water temperature outlets was paramount. They sought a solution that not only ensured ease of maintenance for years to come but also boasted effortless installation. They also needed a compact and stylish solution to complement the high-quality finish washrooms and bathrooms.

Our involvement

Reliance Valves Heatguard Style TMV3 Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMV) were selected by Quartz Electrical to prioritize end-user safety. Its compact and sleek design also made it stand out as their preferred choice amidst a sea of alternatives on the market.

TMV-3 approved for public and healthcare sectors, the TMV effectively blends hot and cold water at the point of discharge, ensuring a safer, cooler temperature at the outlet. This technology safeguards end users against scalding at the point of use and also helps to reduce the risk of Legionella.

Additionally, the TMV3 automatically shuts off the hot water in case of a cold water supply failure, preventing unsafe temperatures from reaching the outlet. Trusted by Quartz Electrical, this solution from Reliance Valves mitigates the possibility of accidental injuries.

The Heatguard Style TMV3 stood out for its compact design, facilitating easy installation even in tight spaces. Its user-friendly maintenance ensures convenience for our client's post-project completion. Its cost-effectiveness, coupled with the reliable support from Reliance Valves, makes it a valuable choice.
