Decathlon, Braehead Warehouse – Temperature Control Case Study


Sintra Pulsion delivers homogenous temperature throughout the retail warehouse, with reduced lifecycle costs —providing a comfortable environment, responsibly and sustainably . 

Cross Group provided the Sintra Pulsion temperature control HVAC system design, and carried out the onsite installation. 

Cross Group have over 80 years experience in refrigeration and air conditioning, and are sole Sintra Pulsion® distributors for UK and Ireland 


With 11m ceiling height, accurate temperature control and comfort throughout the retail warehouse is a key focus. The roof skylights create excess solar gain in summer months, and stratification issues in winter lead to extreme and uncomfortable internal temperatures.

The Sintra design consists of a Pulsion Beam arrangement, which incorporates two Primary ①, and one Secondary ② Pulsers
These are connected to an external Lennox AHU, treating the retail warehouse to maintain temperature at +/- 1 deg C of set point at all times.
