Italy’s iconic Fashion Week: Four shows, various locations, dozens of units and one big triumph!

Last week, the curtain came down on another successful and highly publicised Milan Fashion Week! Attended by revered designers, industry insiders, and others fortunate enough to receive an invitation, the shows are among the world’s most exclusive events – although our colleagues in Italy were permitted more than a sneak preview!

With climate control solutions required for a total of four shows at three different locations, it would not be an exaggeration to say it’s been a very busy week for all at Nolo Climat!

Telecoms client comes back for more after positive first impression!

Like all businesses, we take repeat custom as a good sign – and we’re always delighted when a satisfied client chooses to return to us again when the need dictates.

Back in 2015, we were contacted by a cloud technology service provider after their data centre’s cooling equipment went down unexpectedly. On that occasion, they were looking for some temporary ventilation to operate alongside some of our portable air conditioning units.

With the requirement urgent and the majority of our FV fans on hire at the time, we were able to improvise almost effortlessly to supply four PAC 22 units and an FH185 heater, which was utilised to great effect on the fan-only mode.

Last-ditch air conditioning hire keeps luminarium exhibition open

We recently provided temporary cooling to the Light Sensory Exhibition at the Lakeside Arts Centre on campus at the University of Nottingham.

The inflatable interconnecting structures you see pictured are under continual positive pressure delivered by five specialist fans.

If internal temperatures exceed 30C, the whole exhibition is put in jeopardy – and that’s where we came in. We received the enquiry on the eve of the hottest day of the year, so there was very little room for error and lots at stake!

Offshore technology leaders turn to UK’s climate control leaders!

Having installed countless high capacity cooling solutions in petrochemical plants across the country, we are rightly considered industry leaders when it comes to the climate control requirements of these specialist applications.

Our expertise is so widely recognised that we regularly undertake projects in conjunction with the sector’s biggest players, including a recent air conditioning hire involving an internationally revered oil and marine hose manufacturer.

The client had previously hired an HPAC unit for use in their Yorkshire production facility, and they were looking for similar this time around. Their main focus was ensuring that machinery was kept cool during the highly publicised heatwave, with an HPAC 45 model selected due to its suitability to areas of up to 1,000m³ in size.

Another major sporting event, another successful outcome!

With almost 30 million people tuning into the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham earlier this month, it’s fair to say there would have been plenty of witnesses had something drastic gone wrong.

While sporting outcomes were evidently out of our hands, one thing we could help control was the temperature of the central video podium inside the Alexandra Stadium.

A mass of electronic equipment was housed in the bowels of this somewhat unique application, with the event’s organisers slightly concerned about the possibility of a hardware failure unless something was done. Excessive heat was being given off, and with ventilation limited to air movers inside, a heavier duty solution was required.

Practical cooling, economical functionality and zero emissions: meet the Arena 15!

In many industries, evaporative cooling technology is now preferred to traditional air conditioning systems because of the benefits offered. An evaporative cooler is economical, delivers excellent air quality, produces no carbon emissions, and is incredibly easy to use and maintain.

These factors form the basis of our decision to expand our range, and we are delighted to announce the recent addition of our new Arena 15 unit.

As with all evaporative coolers offered by Andrews Sykes, this latest product is perfect for use in applications where there are a lack of available openings to permit the use of extraction ducting.

Tailored air conditioning solution during the peak of summer? No problem!

The healthcare industry has always been a key market sector for us, due in no small part to the fact that our excellent service lends itself to the needs of critical applications that demand swift action. That’s something we can and do provide regularly, which is why we have established a reputation for speed and reliability.

Not every project we work on involves dozens of units and multiple delivery drivers, however, naturally, we take every requirement seriously.

In the aftermath of the recent record-breaking spell, we received a cooling enquiry from a suburban health centre. Our client was conscious that although temperatures were not as high as they previously had been, the potential for another heatwave meant that pre-emptive action should be taken.Following a discussion with the site’s facilities manager, it was decided that a combination of Polar Wind, Polar Breeze and Double Cool units would be necessary to cool all parts of the building. The Double Cools were deployed in a clinical room which had no windows or openings, while the two air conditioning models were stationed inside the waiting area and reception.

Air conditioning trinity cools uni building during student clearing process

You might expect the summer to be a quieter period for universities up and down the country, but that’s not entirely true. In fact, one of our major account customers – a facilities management service provider – has just placed a significant air conditioning order with us to ensure a campus building stays cool during the student Clearing season.

The building in question comprises a large registration room, a separate breakout area, and four classrooms. Each application presented its own challenges in terms of ascertaining the best solution, which is why we sent one of our experts to conduct an assessment on site.

Animal welfare centre seeks cooling on behalf of their four-legged tennants!

As a nation of animal lovers, Brits are well-known for treating their pets the same as any other member of the family – and there’s nothing wrong with that! When you break it down, it’s probably fair to say that humans and our furry companions aren’t too dissimilar. We both tend to enjoy meal times, we both generally enjoy sleeping, and we both like staying cool when it’s hot!

Most breeds of dog and cat, for instance, are averse to excessive warmth, which is the very reason we were recently contacted by a London-based animal shelter after temperatures skyrocketed in June.

Andrews delivers eye-catching performance at this year’s Glastonbury!

The summer and events season typically go hand in hand as far as we’re concerned, hence our close involvement with a number of recent high-profile sporting affairs, music festivals and commemorative celebrations.

Those of you with a keen interest in music will be well aware that Glastonbury 2022 got underway yesterday, and we’ve been working hard to ensure the artists and crew stay cool between performances.

Our input specifically related to the iconic Pyramid Stage, which is widely seen as the most instantly recognisable festival stage in the world.
