It's not enough to be confident that your plant or factory is able to function smoothly in optimum conditions, you also have to ensure that you'll be able to continue to function to a high capacity when things are not at their best. For example, environmental changes impact your business in a variety of ways and if you don't have plans in place to deal with extreme changes in the weather you could end up losing a lot of money as your plant struggles to perform. Make sure that you are ready to deal with adverse conditions, no matter what the weather throws at you.

If you own a factory or plant, the chances are that you've devoted some time and energy into looking at ways to cut your consumption and lower the number of adverse effects you could be having on the environment. However, that doesn't mean you don't also have to make provisions for unexpected adverse weather conditions such as extreme coldness, flooding or overheating.

During long, hard winters, you may think that you've got everything working the way you need it to in your factory or plant. However, even if you seem to have the heating right, you could actually be suffering from humidity problems, make sure your equipment isn't at risk of corrosion by installing or making plans to rent moisture control solution that will help you keep your machines in good condition during long winter months.

If your business premises are in a location that could be at risk of flooding, it's crucial to ensure you have protection such as flood barriers - either permanent or temporary - as well as things such as air brick covers and non-return valves on drains and pipes in place. If flood water does enter your plant or factory, you'll be in a much better position if you've already taken precautions such as raising electrical sockets, electrical wiring and controls for ventilation systems.

Your business isn't only at risk during the cold and wet months however, the summer months can bring potential problems too. During periods of sustained heat, your plant or factory could find itself at risk of slowing down or burning out. The best way to minimise the chances of your productivity suffering in steamy weather when your plant just doesn't have the resources to cope is to supplant the capacity of your cooling towers.

There are more ways than one to boost the cooling capabilities of your premises, one is to augment existing cooling towers by diverting a portion of hot water from your cooling towers and passing it onto a rental tower. The other is by isolating a particular exchanger or group of exchangers from your cooling tower and placing it or them on a rental tower. These solutions can help you stay on track no matter how hot it gets outside.

Even if the skies ahead look clear, it's a very good idea to make back up plans for all manner of environmental threats - you never know when you may need to factor the weather into your working week.
