Temporary store heating solution – needed fast
When a well-known supermarket chain’s heating system went down at one of their local stores, they needed a temporary store heating solution – fast, with minimal disruption to their operation and customers.
Detailed, technical survey – to ensure the right specification
Our local Sales Engineer visited the store and liaised with the Store Manager and a representative from their FM provider to agree the brief and carry out a survey of the store to propose an accurate, safe and efficient solution that would satisfy their requirements.
Equipment delivered within hours
Once the scope of works was agreed, our hire equipment team were fast to react – organising the correctly specified heating equipment – a 300kW diesel boiler, 2 x 150kW air handlers and all the necessary auxiliaries such as hoses to link the two air handler units to the boiler. Within hours of completing the survey, we delivered the equipment to the store.
In the meantime, the store team cleared space in the stock room and the FM company prepared an outlet fascia, ready for the flexible ducting to deliver air into the store via the air handlers. We adjusted the air handler fan speed to get the optimum balance of air flow required to distribute the heat throughout the store comfortably.
Efficient installation & commissioning
Thanks to a detailed brief and survey initially, we were able to execute a successful temporary heating project with our energy efficient, correctly specified, installed and commissioned equipment.
The store had engaged other heating equipment hire companies who could not match their needs. They offered proposals of equipment taking up valuable floorspace and even compromising the safety of customers as well as requirements for a greater power supply than was needed, which would have resulted in a higher energy bill for the store.
