By Royal Appointment - The Blakeney British Legion call on Purmo

PURMO has played its own part in WWI history with an installation at the Blakeney Royal British Legion. 

Purmo has provided nine Safety Radiators for the Royal Legion’s brand new function room which, thanks to local fundraising, has been refurbished from a dilapidated World War One army mess hall.

Blakeney, on the North Norfolk Coast, is an area of outstanding natural beauty, known for its wildlife sanctuary and its harbour.  Local plumbing and heating engineers, M H Scargill & Son, carried out the installation in Blakeney High Street free of all labour charges as a gesture of goodwill to the community. Mick Scargill commented,

“Being a public building, we had strict local bylaws to conform to, and the Purmo Safety Radiator fitted the bill completely. Futhermore, the Royal Legion had a tight budget, but the Safety Radiator suited our price perfectly. It was also very unobtrusive and blended into the environment.”

The Purmo Safety Radiator is a popular choice amongst installers because, unlike conventional radiators which generate high surface temperatures and can easily burn arms and legs, the Safety Radiator never runs above a maximum of 43 degrees centigrade.

Gary Mears, PR Manager for the Legion, commented, “The Royal Legion had fundraised for nearly three years to finance this new addition to their premises, and it serves as much more than a village hall, providing facilities for weddings and seminars, as well as boasting a high profile video system. Purmo has played its part in enhancing the new building dramatically.”

The Purmo Safety Radiator meets with NHS guidelines, and is available in single and double configuration to suit all design and output needs.
