Electric-powered misting fans hired from Kennards Hire created a cool mist to provide comfort in very hot weather for patrons at a riverside restaurant and function centre.  

The misting fans were hired from Kennards Rydalmere for the Port Bar in Parramatta, adjoining the River Cat wharf.  

Misting fans are designed to convert water from an in-built, 36-litre tank into mist with a throw of about three metres; the cool air is projected even farther to reduce the overall temperature in the area.    

Anna Panton, the Port Bar manager says that the misting fans are ideal for open plan, covered function areas.     

In addition to being a novelty, the misting fans also help to cool down the guests, she added.   

Key features of misting fans from Kennards Hire:  

  • Suitable for outdoor or semi-enclosed entertainment and sports venues
  • Also ideal for enclosed indoor areas such as factories, warehouses and gymnasiums
  • Mist amount, oscillation and fan speed can be adjusted
  • Can also be used as normal fans with the misting function turned off

Kennards operates over 100 equipment hire outlets across Australia offering products such as pedestal fans, portable air conditioners and evaporative air coolers.
