Viessmann's role in a winter's tale warmly received

Actors chattering backstage at the Royal Shakespeare Company's Courtyard Theatre were not reciting lines but had lost control of their teeth due to the cold, until Viessmann warmed things up.
Andy Buckley, of local installer Hinton Buckley, was tasked with siting a boiler to heat the backstage areas, including props and changing rooms, which formed part of the RSC's complex in Stratford upon Avon.

The changing area was just behind the stage so you near silence was required in the area during performances.
Due to the lack of available floor space or low level space the boiler had to be mounted on the wall 15ft off the ground.

Once the theatre's heating issues were addressed, its audience were able to witness a love scene played out on stage unhindered by unrelated noise thanks to the selection of the Viessmann Vitodens 300 at 66kW output.

One of the reasons the boiler was chosen was because the MatriX burner of the Vitodens has very low noise levels at all its four modulating settings and does not give a ' whoof' on ignition, so preserving the magic of the quietest scene.

While the backstage can stay a quiet area during performances, the stainless steel heat exchanger of the condensing boiler delivers a 98% energy efficiency to allow the RSC to reduce its bills and CO2 emissions.

A family-owned firm since 1917, Viessmann offers commercial, domestic and renewable heating technology and has a turnover of 1.3 billion Euros. Viessmann operates in 34 countries and has almost 7,000 employees.
