For the past two summers, Aircon Rentals have assisted a local Melbourne high school cope with the extreme heat over the summer months. The air-conditioning installed to their drama room wasn’t built to cope with the rise in temperatures and faced with restricted access to the problem area, it was a challenge Aircon Rentals couldn’t resist. Our skilled engineers inspected the site and came up with a solution for the school aircon hire.
By using a franna, Aircon Rentals were able to install one of our 72kw package air conditioning units on top of a shipping container, enabling the supply and return air to reach into the ceiling of the drama room. The school also requested the “socks” of fabric ducting that would be used to cool the room be black rather than the usual white in order to seamlessly blend in with the black paint of the room. After all, a white stripe across the ceiling would light up quite well when the stage lights were on. So with the black fabric ductwork running through the centre of the room, cool air is evenly distributed throughout.
Of course, the rental package unit was firmly secured down and the unit was positioned at the back, in an out of bounds area. Whilst it was a tight squeeze to get the machine into place, our team are extremely experienced and it posed no difficulty.
The unit was also fitted with remote monitoring equipment, allowing us to set the temperature remotely and ensure the unit was always in good working order.
Once the summer was over, the equipment was removed during the school holidays, ensuring as few people as possible would be on site in order to ensure the safety for everyone involved. All Aircon Rentals staff have Working with Children checks / Blue cards.
The client was very happy with how well the 72kw package unit cooled down the drama room (as were the students who had to perform in it!)
