Kennards Hire has boosted stocks of portable air conditioners to cope with what is predicted to be an extremely hot summer. The company has added 80 more 4.9kW units, which are the biggest portable air conditioner that can run off 240V. The ease of set-up and their effectiveness makes them ideal for factories, shops and offices.
One of Australia’s biggest motion picture film laboratories is among hirers who have found the 4.9kW portable air conditioning units excellent for emergency needs. A quick solution was needed when the air conditioning failed in a computer room at the Sydney offices of Deluxe Australia, which distributes Hollywood movies to theatres across the nation and also carries out post-production for locally made movies such as Baz Luhrmann’s Australia.
Group business system manager, Simon Jacobs, said a constant low temperature had to be maintained in the room. “An environmental alert sounded about 7am on a Saturday and our chief engineer Ian Andersen came straight to the office and called Kennards,” he said. “They were fantastic – they not only delivered two portable air conditioning units within an hour, they also set them up and made sure they were working properly.”
Other products available from Kennards Hire include:
- 10kW and 20kW portable air conditioners for larger areas
- Small portable air conditioners for offices and homes
