All of these have proven to be undesirable consequences of a cold indoor setting and can affect both our personal and professional lives.

Extreme electric racing seeks Andrews Heat emergency heating

Every year, London is selected as the ideal location for many exciting and innovative events – and 2019 has so far proven to be no different. One of these well-attended events recently took place near London Bridge, where a historic ship hosted an extreme electric car racing event.

One of the UK’s largest exhibition centres stands alongside the River Thames in East London and is well-known for hosting major trade shows and other high-profile events. Due to our previous involvement with the venue, Andrews Heat for Hire is regularly asked to assist when events are hosted here.

A temporary external structure outwith the main building was being used to host props, robotics and other sensitive equipment portraying the world’s most famous super heroes, which unsurprisingly attracted a great deal of interest from fans across the country. Andrews was therefore tasked with keeping the attraction warm and dry given that the event ran during the winter months.

Hired drying arrangement assists school renovation development

Andrews Heat for Hire was recently approached by a construction company after it took over the renovation of an academy school in West Sussex. With work in the latter stages, a hired drying solution was required.

Cold November temperatures in the region meant that it would take far longer than the time available for plaster and flooring to dry inside the new building. The contractor responsible for the project contacted Andrews Heat for Hire before one of our local experts visited the premises.

After carrying out a free site survey of the building and discussing the best solution with the customer, our engineer proposed the installation of an Aurora FH2000 alongside four ASF50 fans. The heating unit was capable of supplying up to 200kW of warm, dry air with the fans deployed simultaneously to maximise air movement.
