Keeping Our Fitters Cool During The Warm Weather

 
Keeping Our Fitters Cool During The Warm Weather

As we now enter the hottest months of the year, we see the demand for conservatory blinds - especially conservatory roof blinds - skyrocket. But it's important to remember that while temperatures in conservatories can be unbearable for most people, it can be even worse for our installation team fitting blinds during this weather.

The hottest part of the conservatory is always the roof, and the closer you get to it the warmer it gets. In some cases the roof of a conservatory can approach 60ºC (140ºF) - making it extremely uncomfortable for anyone trying to work up there either measuring for or instllating conservatory blinds.

In these circumstances there are a few things our fitters do to try and alleviate the conditions and make it easier for them to work:
 

  • Start work early – if we can start early in the morning, we can avoid the worst of the day's sun
     
  • Ventilate the conservatory – creating a through-draft significantly reduces the temperature
     
  • Create our own shade – we fit the largest roof blinds first so that we can work in our own shade
     
  • Drink lots of fluids – it is so unbelievably hot at roof level that we lose a lot of body fluids,
     
  • Take regular breaks – it is quite easy to suffer heat stroke working in conservatories

However, during periods of weather like this we always ask that our customers do as much as possible to help our fitters keep cool. Many of our fitters bring their own fans with them during weather like this, so a spare power socket in the conservatory will help them out considerably, and of course any cold drinks are always appreciated.

Please also be understanding if your fitter needs to take a short break when measuring or installing roof blinds. Due to the extreme temperatures in a conservatory roof, the fitter will always be much more productive if he is allowed to cool himself down.
