Polygon heater

Polygon has added direct-fired heaters to its construction drying services, to help general contractors and construction personnel maintain proper temperatures on job sites during the winter.

The new heaters are energy efficient and economical to operate, “because rental costs are lower and fuel costs reduced with unique controls that allow burner turndown,” says David Simkins, director of industrial services for Polygon.

“Winter construction projects present their own special challenges, and heat is often needed to ensure that the project remains on schedule,” said Simkins. “These direct-fired heaters are built rugged and durable, specifically for the construction industry’s harshest winter conditions.”

Controlling Humidity

Simkins recommends supplementing direct-fired heaters with temporary humidity control. “Introducing heat into a cold environment can cause humidity and condensation—conditions that can potentially cause damage, disruption, schedule delays and occupant discomfort,” he says.

“A combination of direct-fired heat and desiccant dehumidification technology will help contractors maintain proper temperature, relative humidity and ventilation on construction job sites, and keep schedules on track during the winter months.”

Polygon, with North American headquarters in Amesbury, MA, provides services and products for the prevention and mitigation of the effects of fire, water and humidity. The company provides 24-hour coverage by an international network of more than 2,000 employees in 15 countries.
