Andrews dry concrete flooring at tarmac company warehouse

Before concrete can be laid during the winter period, a series of precautions must be taken to ensure the composition sets correctly. When outdoor temperatures are low, concrete naturally sets more slowly and can even stop completely if it gets colder than 5°C. In some cases contractors will alter the mixture constituents, but this may not always be feasible if the weather fluctuates too unpredictably.

A large building materials company encountered this precise scenario at one of their sites in Derbyshire, prompting them to source a temporary heater hire package that could assist their drying process. Our client was looking to lay concrete on the second floor of a large equipment store located at a quarry in Buxton, but adverse conditions led to concerns that this would freeze once poured.

Andrews provide heating for London bus garages

The winter months present a number of challenges to businesses during this period, particularly in terms of keeping large open spaces warm. Bus depots regularly contact us seeking temporary heating solutions but because these are generally exposed to the elements, retaining heat inside the premises can prove difficult.

In response to the issue, we provided a large number of direct-fired diesel heaters to be deployed in garages across the capital. These robust yet portable units were specifically selected because of their ability to generate large volumes of warm air – an imperative requirement of projects such as these.
