UK: Air-conditioning distributor Cool Designs Ltd (CDL) has doubled the size of its operation in Warrington by acquiring premises next to its existing site at Cranford Court.

These new premises add about 3,500ft² of space and have been completely fitted out as additional warehousing facilities and incorporate a specially designed workshop area.

 
“This workshop is an important innovation for CDL as it gives us the opportunity to customise products and provide bespoke solutions for heating and cooling projects,” said Darrel Birkett, managing director of the Toshiba air conditioning distributor.
A good example of this, says the company, is the Toshiba floor standing MMF-AP***1H units, which are normally associated as being part of a VRF system. They can however be customised and used in split systems, where their small footprint makes them ideal in many situations. 

 
 At the other end of the scale CDL can offer a VRF condensing unit flat pack service for sites where it is not possible to use a crane to lift the product so the outdoor units can be broken down by CDL to three or more manoeuvrable pallets.
