    Default Too cold to work


    Do you guys stick to the guidelines of no taping below 5 degrees or do you stick it on the walls whatever?

    I usually concede defeat when the buckets are iced up or when the gear makes those pretty icy patterns when you put it on the walls and ceilings. I'm guessing anything under 10 degrees isnt good taping conditions.

    See these comments

    And theres a downloadable spec sheet here

    They usually supply gas blowers for us but since one of there sites burnt down they don't to use them anymore. They just get the red rads, but for the areas I need they're useless.
    Been think about buying a couple of 110v electric fan heaters. As anyone had experience with them and if so which are the best ones to buy.

    on the BG bags it recommends no taping below 2degrees but I notice the Knauf pro mix lite tubs dont recommend using it under 4degrees

    I headed off to work earlier as i've got some boarding to finish. Yesterday it was -1 and I had a job to open the site container with my tools in as the lock was frozen up. Today it is -4 and it's an hours drive to work, so I thought f*ck that, turned around and came home. The building i'm doing is so well insulated, it probably doesn't get below 3 or 4 degrees, so taping isn't a problem at the moment.
