Bespoke heating hire keeps concert goers warm

With temperatures at record lows this winter, Andrews Heat for Hire have been drafted in to heat various events throughout the Christmas period to ensure guests are kept comfortable. So, when a London-based events company was in the process of organising a high-profile event, they contacted our specialists for some temporary heating equipment.

The company in question planned to host their event in an old, draughty printing factory which had been decommissioned over a decade ago, leaving the application with no heating.

Luxury apartments kept warm by Andrews Heat for Hire

The delicate nature of any floor fitting process means that temperatures must be closely controlled to ensure proper drying of the flooring. So before a housing construction company could begin installing a floor arrangement, Andrews Heat for Hire was approached for a temporary heating package.

A site survey allowed an Andrews technician to recommend a suitable solution to the client, that would prevent newly-laid floor panels from warping under the strain of fluctuating temperatures.

Four DE190 electric heaters were agreed upon and stationed on each floor undergoing work, ensuring a constant supply of heat was being distributed throughout the site. Our heater rental solution was required to operate overnight due to an issue with a lack of power onsite, and this served to guarantee that indoor temperatures never fell below a desirable level.

At Andrews Heat for Hire, we understand the obligation of companies operating in the food industry to keep their guests sufficiently warm throughout the winter season.

So when a famous international restaurant suffered a heating failure at one of their chains in Middlesbrough, our specialists were on hand to provide them with an instant temporary solution.

To ensure the units would be fit for purpose, a member of our contact centre used their sector knowledge to help calculate the volume of the heating duty required. In response, our specialists supplied the client with a number of portable DE25 electric units which they positioned around the dining area as well as the kitchens. This heating rental package remained in place until the fixed system could be repaired.
