Heating and Ventilation

Fews film marquees are designed to reduce the impact of outside temperatures on the internal conditions. Operating under a thermostat system which can be controlled from inside the marquee to create an ambient temperature, whatever the weather conditions outside, we’ll make sure your marquee is heated or cooled discreetly and to just the right temperature.

Using a variety of units, our marquee heaters sit outside the marquee and blow warm air into the marquee through free standing diffuser units located around the marquee walls and disguised to match the interior linings.

Depending on the use and size of the structure, the time of year (the winter months requiring more units and larger versions), three different diffuser unit sizes are available to choose from. Alternatively, specialist overhead ducts can be installed to distribute heat or cool air, depending on the system required.

Our heaters and chillers are able to operate using HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil), which is a paraffinic diesel fuel that can be used as a direct replacement for both red and white diesel.

HVO is synthesised from 100% renewable raw materials such as vegetable oils, animal oils and fats, which reduces net CO2 greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 90%. All raw materials are checked and verified and the fuel’s credentials audited by the Department for Transport (DFT) to ensure both sustainability and product integrity are certified.

Long-life fuel tanks and drip trays can also be fitted should heaters or coolers be installed for significant periods of time.
