Refrigeration Rental for Outdoor Shows

As we bid farewell to winter hibernation it’s a welcome treat to visit outdoor shows. If you’re hosting one over the next few months, best of luck.

A key consideration for organisers of outdoor events is visitor safety and the Health and Safety Executive has a set of directives to ensure that venues are presented as risk free as they can be.

This is often an employment of common sense; pegs set in to the ground correctly, blocks under wheels to guarantee that vehicles or exhibits don’t roll, first aid stands and only leading professional acts in the showring.

There is another vital factor that event planners mustn’t overlook: Food safety and refrigeration rental.

It may not spring to mind as a primary concern as you book the attractions, get a committee assembled and decisions made, but outdoor fridge hire is as necessary for an event as the visitors.

Any food being produced for public consumption is governed by the following important pieces of legislation:

  • The Food Safety Act 1990 – The framework for food legislation in the UK.
  • The Food Standards Agency Food Law Code of Practice. Current version published April 2015.
  • The Food Hygiene Regulations 2006. Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 and Food Safety Act 1990 enforcement and penalties.
  • The Food Law Regulations (EC) No 178/2002 and (EC) No 852/2004. EU member country food laws and requirements.

All due care must be taken

Failure to ensure the safety of consumers can lead to food poisoning, penalties, legal action and a severe loss of reputation. If you are catering the event using willing volunteers please do your homework to maximise food hygiene, correct cooking and storage. If you’re hiring a professional caterer, they should know and adhere to the rules.

If your event needs additional refrigeration space to hold food and drink stock then this can be arranged through a professional, legislation abiding and cost effective firm like Icecool Trailers in Newbury. They serve the Thames Valley, the Home Counties, London, Berkshire, the Midlands and South Wales.

Please don’t opt for a cheap and cheerful risky solution like storing stock against a shady wall or under a tree. This may be less expensive but it contravenes regulations.

Top rated outdoor fridge hire units

Fridge trailers on wheels or rooms which don’t have wheels, are highly maintained, hygienic, meet all legal requirements and are available in a range of sizes for any duration.

All refrigeration rental facilities are large enough to be worked in. This helps to keep food and drink out of the sunlight so it won’t spoil and pose a health risk.

Leading firms deliver lockable and insured refrigeration rental facilities to site and set them up. They can be mains or generator powered. The stock you place in the units isn’t insured so you’ll require a separate policy.

Fridge trailers build client confidence in event and refreshment management.

Whatever the event you are hosting this year, take advantage of the peace of mind and safety levels that refrigeration rental offers.
