Care home washrooms made safe with the help of Andrews heater hire

Having worked with care homes for many years – providing short-term heating for bedrooms and communal areas – we have developed long-standing relationships with clients in this field. So when a care home in Scotland contacted us in search of a heater hire solution, we reacted quickly to satisfy their requirements.

Our client required temporary heating to counteract low indoor temperatures, when trying to lay slip resistant vinyl flooring in their wet-rooms.

It was decided that two FH111 indirect oil fired heaters would be stationed outside the building, with hot air ducted in through external doors. The hire package was required to be in constant use, keeping room temperatures at 15°C 24 hours a day, in order to seal the flooring.

Once operational, our indirect fired heaters ensured the temperature of the assisted bathrooms were constantly maintained which ensured all vinyl flooring dried without issue. Our units are expected to be kept on hire for a minimum of 4 weeks – keeping the care home warm throughout the cold spell.
