Kooltron is fully operational during traditional builders’ holidays, but normally closes between Christmas and New Year. We are willing to assist with after hours’ work if arranged in advance.

Our Process

Given Kooltron’s significant experience in the industrial ventilation industry, we are able to anticipate potential challenges before we even commence with a project. This enables us to implement the necessary preventative measures and thereby successfully negate or moderate these problems should they occur. Our experience also frees us to think a little differently and solve challenges in a dynamic and sometimes unexpected way. This hands-on practical understanding translates into improved productivity and minimal downtime for the client.

Past Contracts

While Kooltron typically negotiates contracts directly with clients, we have successfully completed a number of projects, ranging from R10 000 to R4.8 million, for both private clients and consulting engineers.

Our clients include: governmental departments, provincial departments, mines, printers, textile mills, food processors, fishing companies, timber mills, furniture factories, retail outlets, automotive, spray painters, manufacturing industries, foundries and chemical industries. Kooltron is also experienced in exporting to Europe and Africa.

About Us

Kooltron was founded in 1968 and steadily gained a reputation as evaporative cooling specialists. In recent decades, however, we have expanded our services to become a significant player in all aspects of medium to large industrial ventilation systems that range in value from R10 000 to R4.8 million.

While we initially manufactured fans for use in our own projects we are becoming a force in the market place in terms of producing fans for external parties. Given our in-house manufacturing flexibility, we offer quick turnabout on quality products.
