Dimplex Delivers Dining Comfort At Oxford University


When an OxfordUniversity college  needed to improve comfort levels in a  hard-to-heat dining hall, Dimplex’s commercial heating experts came up with an efficient solution to keep students warm year-round.

By combining a fast warm-up from powerful fan heaters with an air curtain to minimise heat loss from the doorways, the Dimplex solution quickly raises room temperature to comfortable levels and easily retains the warmth for the duration of the hall’s use.

The dining hall at St Antony’s College was built in the late Sixties with large singleglazed windows, low levels of insulation and a high ceiling. The hall is used daily for lunch and dinner and also frequently in the evening for a variety of other functions. It’s a large facility in the middle of the site and an important focus in the students’ daily life, so it’s vital that it remains in commission..
