In 2019, the FNB Wines2Whales rider dining marquee will be more comfortable than ever, thanks to Fourways Airconditioning. While every rider is hoping for warm temperatures and clear skies throughout their three-day celebration of #SeriousGEES, nobody wants to sweat over dinner. Fortunately, with the help of Fourways Airconditioning, the dining marquee will feature a cooler atmosphere this year.

Not only will Fourways Airconditioning be providing cooling units for the dining marquee but they will also be proving mobile air conditioners for the medical tent. Thus, ensuring that any rider who is taken in for treatment will be in a pleasantly cool environment, out of the baking heat of the Western Cape summer sun.

“We are excited to be partnering with FNB Wines2Whales and look forward to being able to provide much-needed comfort to the riders” Richard Perry, CEO of Fourways Airconditioning, said. “With so many riders in the dining marquee we know how hot and stuffy it can get in there. Our air conditioners will hopefully alleviate that and ensure a cooler dining experience.”

“It is great to have Fourways Airconditioning on-board as a sponsor of the 2019 FNB Wines2Whales events” Hendrico Burger, Race Director of the FNB Wines2Whales, stated. “The dining marquee is one of the best places in the race village to relax but when the evenings are hot, the riders prefer to eat a quick dinner and move down to the FNB Rider Lounge or the CBC Chill Zone. Having the Fourways Airconditioning units in the dining marquee will ensure riders can take their time over dinner, enjoy the evening presentations and spend more time socialising over a post-dinner beer or glass of wine.”

Fourways Airconditioning was founded in 1999 and has over the last twenty years grown into one of the South African industry leaders. With outlets in all major metropolitan areas they provide complete after-sales support. While they also boast certified installation technicians across the country, as well as in both Mauritius and Perth, Australia.
