TV production allowed to continue thanks to ventilation hire

With more and more industries returning to a form of normality under new guidelines, we are seeing businesses make necessary adaptions to the way they operate in order to thrive in the current climate. The TV and film sector, for example, has been in constant communication with the Government and other prominent authorities to ensure all parties remain complicit with the latest regulations.

As a result, a new Code of Practice has been drawn up which outlines essential measures that networks and broadcasters must take going forward. Scientific research has demonstrated the importance of filming environments benefitting from multiple air changes per hour, reducing the likelihood of airborne viruses transmitting between people working at close quarters.

Andrews Air Conditioning Hire assists Charlton Athletic with pre-season preparations

With overwhelmingly hot conditions making Charlton’s gymnasium and indoor training facilities uncomfortably hot for players during their pre-season workouts, an air conditioning solution was required to help restore temperatures to a more comfortable level.

The players were undergoing various fitness tests at their Eltham training ground, with a cooler environment required to ensure their schedules were not impacted in any way.

A club representative contacted us to explain the problem before an expert from our local depot visited the training ground to assess which equipment would be most suitable. After assessing the size of the areas in which cooling was required, it was decided that three PAC 22 split type air conditioning units would be ideal for the application and quickly address the stuffy environment.
