An events production company has purchased a second wood waste heater to reduce its waste disposal costs and keep its workshop warm and functional during the winter months. 

The Borehamwood-based company is a trade supplier to the live event, corporate and film industries, providing scenic carpentry and bespoke set building solutions, as well as a full turnkey audio and technical service. 

Whilst the business tries hard to minimise its wood waste, there is inevitably a large amount created, and the team at Light Fantastic is understandably keen to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. 

After doing some research, the company got in touch with Kurt Cockroft at Wood Waste Technology. The company ordered a WT5 heater a few years ago, and has since purchased an additional WT10 heater, which Wood Waste Technology’s experienced engineers installed earlier this year. 

The investment has made many positive differences to the business. The wood waste heaters keep the workshop warm, even on really cold days, and the business is also saving money on skips as all the wood waste can be burned in the heater. 

General manager, Chris Bertram explains: “We realised that purchasing a wood waste heater could solve our wood waste disposal problem, whilst also helping warm up our workshop, which is a cold place to be in winter.

“The building has no heating installed in the warehouse and workshop spaces, and with a high roof, plus two-sets of roller shutter doors it’s a difficult place to keep warm. The cold also caused issues with production, for example, if the wood got damp or if it was too cold for the paint to dry. We were very impressed with our first heater, so it was an easy decision to purchase the second one.“

“We’re delighted that the wood waste heaters are helping Light Fantastic Production Services reduce its waste disposal bills and get free heating in the warehouse and workshop,” says managing director of Wood Waste Technology, Kurt Cockroft.

“We have many event and exhibition companies interested in wood waste heaters due to the amount of waste wood these industries naturally create.”

Wood Waste Technology’s years of expertise in wood waste solutions have helped many companies reduce their waste disposal and heating costs.  As well as offering site survey, design, manufacture, installation and on-going maintenance for new units, the company also services all types of wood waste heaters and supplies genuine spares up to 60% cheaper than other suppliers.

In addition, Wood Waste Technology is the UK official distributor for Gross Apparatebau GmbH – a German manufacturer of dependable, precision engineered shredders and briquetters, available in various size and specifications to suit all business applications.
