UK audiences love a trip to the theatre but it’s not much fun for the audiences or the performers when it’s hot and stuffy – especially in older and heritage buildings where there’s no existing air conditioning or where a permanent system is not an option. But ICS Cool Energy’s quiet and effective portable solutions provide the answer.
With many theatres having restricted access, limited space and often no windows, keeping the auditorium cool and fresh is a challenge at the best of times and especially in the summer.
As a heatwave hit and with sell out performances, one theatre contacted ICS Cool Energy for a speedy solution which was delivered the same day from stock in the form of eight Cool Clima powerful split air conditioners. These are quiet in operation, with a compact footprint and simply plug in and out no heat back into the building.
A celebrated theatre on the south coast also faced a challenge and the only access point was under a bridge – too low for a standard chiller to pass safely. The ICS Cool Energy team worked out that by adapting the chiller frame prior to dispatch, the delivery lorry could pass under the bridge safely – delivering and installing a Chiller 135 and two Air Handler 150 units just 24 hours after the first call.
ICS Cool Energy has the largest fleet of temperature control solutions (heaters and coolers) for hire, available from stock and frequently delivered to all types of buildings within just a few hours where they are installed and commissioned by the teams.
“We work with theatres and events businesses around the country and are set up to provide a fast response which is often what’s needed when the temperatures rise or fall below the norm. In every instance we design and install the best solution to overcome the problems with the minimal disruption to everyday business,” said Russ Baker, Sales Director, Hire.
With special understanding of the leisure and events business, ICS Cool Energy’s solutions are demanded for weddings, marquees, theatres, festivals, pop up events, graduation ceremonies and any environment where groups of people need to be kept comfortable.
We’ve worked with many theatres and events managers over the years and deliver fast, effective solutions that keep the audiences happy and comfortable.
