Flow Power Solutions

Setting up for your summer events

Summer is the peak of the event season and hosting a successful event in a temporary venue like a marquee requires careful planning to ensure the comfort of your guests. Flow provide tailored cooling solutions and temperature control systems to meet the unique needs of your event. Whether you need a short-term solution for a marquee or a long-term approach to keeping a military camp cool, we can design a solution to keep everyone comfortable. Here’s how to set up your summer outdoor event to keep your temporary venue cool over the warmer summer months. 

It’s essential to understand the specific requirements of your event. Consider the following factors: 

Event size: The number of guests and the size of the venue. 

Venue type: Marquee, tent, exhibition hall or any other temporary structure. 

Event duration: Single-day events versus multi-day functions or semi-permanent structures 

Weather conditions: Anticipated temperatures and humidity levels. 

Flow are specialists in providing expert cooling hire solutions, ensuring your event or venue remains comfortable regardless of the heat or humidity. With the Flow difference, you won’t risk getting the level or location of your HVAC wrong. Our engineering team will map the air flow around your structure, depending on your layout and footfall, ensuring a temperature that is perfect all day long. Selecting the right cooling equipment is crucial to the success of your event. Here are some of the options Flow can help with: 

  • Chiller Units: Ideal for large temporary structures, providing substantial cooling capacity to maintain a comfortable temperature. 
  • Split air conditioning units: Featuring a small footprint, these units are quiet and make a good choice for medium to large marquees. 
  • Portable Air Conditioners: Suitable for targeted cooling, perfect for smaller areas within your event space. 

To ensure a complete event solution, Flow also provides a range of ancillary equipment to support the main cooling systems, including: 

Flexible Ducting: For directing air to specific areas within the venue. 

Pumps and Hoses: Essential for the proper operation of chiller systems. 

Temperature Control Units: To monitor and adjust the cooling levels as needed. 

Flow use the very latest power generation technologies, to offer a comprehensive package of climate control options. Our objective is to ensure the efficient and comfortable operation of your temporary structure, irrespective of external weather conditions.  What sets Flow apart is our engineering expertise.  This means our dedicated, in-house team will design a bespoke cooling solution for your venue, mapping airflow and optimising performance.  This includes: 

Site inspection and planning:

We will visit the venue to determine the best locations for placing cooling units and ancillary equipment. This will enable us to produce a layout plan that includes power sources and distribution points.  For temporary venues, we will work with your provider, using CAD drawings to map a solution.

Containment and distribution:

We will install flexible ducting to direct cool air to the desired areas within the venue. Where needed, we will also supply safe containment for cabling. 

Testing:

Once the setup is complete, our engineers will test the entire system to ensure it’s working correctly as per models. This enables us fine tune the temperature settings and distribution as needed to achieve optimal cooling. 

Maintaining a cool environment throughout your event requires ongoing attention. Here are some tips to help you manage the temperature effectively: 

Monitor temperature levels: Regularly check the temperature inside the venue using control units and adjust settings as necessary.

Use shade: When installing any temporary event structure, you can use shade from existing buildings or select insulated linings to reduce the heat load on your cooling systems.  These are all considered in our approach to ensure the optimum solution. 

Plan for power backup: Ensure you have backup power solutions in place to keep the cooling systems running in case of a power outage.

Flow provides a wide range of event hire applications to meet the diverse needs of your event: 

Ice Rink Hire: Our chiller rental packages are perfect for creating and maintaining ice rinks even during the summer months.

Marquee Heating: For events that might extend into cooler evenings, our indirect fired heaters ensure a comfortable environment. 

Temporary Structure Cooling: Chillers and air handling units are ideal for maintaining a pleasant temperature in large temporary structures such as exhibition halls or temporary buildings.

Setting up a summer event in a temporary venue like a marquee or event structure requires careful planning and the right cooling solutions to ensure the comfort of your guests. By working with Flow and our engineers, you can ensure your event remains cool and comfortable, no matter how high the temperatures rise.
