Heat Stroke: Six Ways to Avoid it

In the past few weeks, we’ve talked a little bit about heat illness: the unpleasant and potentially deadly consequence of physical overheating. From what it is to the levels of severity, we’ve laid out how to identify heat related illness, how it affects the body and how it can progress. From rashes and nausea to confusion and lightheadedness, heat illness is a real danger to people who work in unconditioned or semi-conditioned environments and on the road here in Western Australia. Here are some things you can do to minimise your risks.


Lower Your Risks With Regular Maintenance

Lyons Air Conditioning is a full service company specialising in mobile air conditioning, including auto air conditioning, truck air conditioning, mining air conditioning and more. We offer airconditioning and refrigeration equipment for sale direct to our clients—equipment like battery-powered portable fridges and compact rooftop air conditioning units. We can install integrated air conditioning systems into cars, trucks, equipment cabs and small buildings like office trailers and onsite cool-rooms. We can repair existing air conditioning systems, too. There’s another air conditioning service we provide, as well: air conditioning maintenance.


Heat Stroke: What it is

We are experts in installing, repairing and maintaining mobile and temporary air conditioning systems, including truck air conditioning, auto air conditioning and mining air conditioning. We can even design air conditioning for unusual, compact and remote spaces. We’re experts with both mechanical and electrical work, and we work with batteries, generators and even solar panels. We’re conscious that what we do is important for the health and wellbeing of workers in mining, transport, energy, construction and other important industries. We help to protect workers on site and on the road from heat stroke, and we’re proud of that.

In the past, we’ve talked a little about some of the stages and levels of severity of heat-related illness. Looking up that information made us wonder: what, exactly, is going on in the body when it overheats? What is heat stroke?


Brand Profile: Red Dot

Every so often, we’ve been featuring posts about companies in our supply chain, respected partners whose products we install or offer directly to our customers in Western Australian transport, construction and mining. Last year, we told you a little about Waeco, the classic German/American brand that sets the standard for mobile, battery-powered refridgerators. We’re a Waeco fridge retailer, and their products are favourites with our customers in transport and every other industry where work is often done on site, in remote locations and off the grid. Today, we’re going to take a look at Red Dot. Red Dot supplies many of the parts and systems we use in our truck and mining air conditioning installations, and we have many of their air conditioning parts online, too.
