Building contractor requires heating for bridge repair

When a major bridge in South West England required heating for a maintenance project, the contractor overseeing the scheme approached us in search of an immediate solution. As part of the programme, the underside of the bridge was to be sprayed with concrete to help reinforce it – generally considered the quickest and most cost-effective technique.

A reliable and constant supply of heating was therefore needed to accelerate drying times and ensure the bridge could be re-opened for use as soon as possible. A local Andrews Sykes specialist reviewed the site and subsequently recommended that our client hire two high capacity FH111 heaters, along with fuel tanks and lengths of ducting.

The equipment was installed within a few days of the initial site visit, allowing repair works to commence almost immediately. Our customer was very pleased with the heating system we recommended which guaranteed the punctual completion of a very important restoration assignment.
