Shopping Centres & Malls

Shopping centres, malls and other major retail premises present particular challenges to their owners, managers and occupiers. Their large scale means that ensuring an even temperature throughout the building can be difficult. Permanently installed, centralised cooling systems are generally the responsibility of the centre manager or owner with supplemental cooling being the responsibility of individual retail tenants. At Andrews, we have a huge range of hire equipment ranging from individual portable air conditioning units to large scale water chillers and air handlers. Our equipment is modular so it can be combined easily to form larger packages for retail malls and major stores, which is ideal for providing additional cooling during periods of exceptional weather or if fixed installations breakdown unexpectedly.

Andrews air conditioners, fluid chillers, air handling units and ventilation fans are available nationwide for immediate delivery at surprisingly affordable prices. So, before your customers vote with their feet and shop elsewhere, make tracks to our door and ask us for a free, no-obligation quotation.
