Another record hot day

Today is predicted to be the hottest September day in the UK for more than 50 years, link to article here. NHS England has declared a level two heat alert with temperatures that can have a significant effect on a person’s health. Dr Thomas Waite, from the extreme events team at PHE, said: “Think today about what you can do, and for those around you, to stay cool during the daytime and particularly at night. For some people, such as older people, those with underlying health conditions and those with young children, summer heat can bring real health risks.” Protect your building and its occupants from excessive overheating by reducing unwanted solar gain with the use of external shading.
