Andrews Heat for Hire assist in heat load test

An internationally recognised self-storage company had plans of moving into their newly built four-storey office block and warehouse in South London, but before this could happen they were required to complete a thermographic inspection.

By using this strategy the client has the opportunity to identify any defective thermal insulation or heat links in advance. Once the issues have been highlighted they can then be used to improve the efficiency of the building’s heating and air conditioning.

Our team of specialists were called in to provide the buildings with some temporary hired heating that had sufficient capacity to raise the temperature of the entire space. Having assessed the particular area and needs of our client, we recommended the deployment of a high capacity FH4000 indirect oil-fired rental heater, which was positioned directly outside of the warehouse.

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.

Northumberland production set seeks emergency heating

Before a UK-based commercial television network could begin filming a brand new drama series in the North East, a temporary heating system was required on set to keep actors and camera crew warm.

All scenes were shot within a modified warehouse, so high capacity units were required to adequately warm the entire area. The customer had actually hired equipment from us on a previous occasion and was looking to get hold of the same heaters they had used before.

Within hours of contact, two IDRG30 radiant indirect fired gas models had been installed on the premises. This product is frequently deployed in a warehouse environment because of its aptness for spaces with limited ventilation. The IDRG30 is capable of warming areas up to 628m³ in size and delivers large volumes of safe, fume-free heat.

Andrews Heat for Hire help store prepare for Christmas!

During the 7 weeks running up to Christmas a renowned supermarket has converted their chilled grocery distribution centre in Birmingham into a storage area for Poinsettia’s.

The heat was ducted into the centre via six lengths of heavy duty ducting, each of 600mm in diameter and 8 metres long.
