As mosques around the country prepare for their busiest month of the year All Seasons Hire have provided one with temporary air conditioning.
Ramadan is the month of the greatest religious observance in Islam. It is the period in which Muslims believe the Quran was revealed. In acknowledgement of this Muslims fast during daylight hours for the duration of the month. Considering Ramadan is carried out just after the summer solstice this can mean not eating between 3 am – 10 pm every day.
This time period will also see increased visits to mosques with people praying up to five times a day. This increase in bodies, plus the predicted scorching summer temperatures, and lack of food can create a potentially volatile situation with a real threat to public health.
A mosque in West London, aware of the risks increased temperatures could pose, contacted All Seasons Hire requesting a temporary air conditioning solution. Within hours of receiving the call one of our technical sales team was on site carrying out a free site survey. It was decided that six Coolbreeze 22p split type air conditioners would be sufficient for cooling the area, even with the projected increase in visitors.
To maximise the cooling effect of the units they were placed on mezzanine flooring above the prayer hall. This allows them to take advantage of the natural effect of convection where hot air rises and cold air falls, helping to distribute the cold air more effectively. With Ramadan set to start within the next few days the mosque is ready to provide a comfortable environment for its worshippers.
We are highly experienced in providing temporary air conditioning solutions for all types of applications. Our technical sales team are always on hand to provide free, no obligation site surveys to help you decide exactly what type of solution is best for you. Contact us today for more information.
