Enhancing the Hotel Guest Experience through Bespoke Heating Solutions

The elegant O’Two Hotel recently commissioned Fourways Cape Town to install a large-scale interior heating solution with equally powerful cooling capabilities throughout its premises.

If there’s one thing that hotel owners know for sure, it’s those guests expect consistent comfort in every part of their stay. More than a mint on a pillow or fluffy towels, comfort is also created by perfect indoor temperatures. The kind that inspires relaxation of mind and body. To achieve this, the O’Two Hotel recently commissioned the installation of a large-scale interior heating solution with equally powerful cooling capabilities throughout its premises; all of which were designed and supplied by Fourways Cape Town.

The O’Two Hotel is a haven of understated elegance and panache, perfectly situated on Mouille Point’s trendy Platinum Mile. It boasts 34 lavishly furnished rooms sleeping up to 78 guests, that are uniquely designed for relaxation in the most indulgent ways possible. Thus, it was only fitting to install air conditioners that would enhance the ambience by improving air quality. Gerd Weideman Architects, consultants for the project sought to integrate a non-intrusive installation with exceptionally low running costs and minimal ongoing maintenance issues.

Fourways Cape Town rose to the occasion by delivering exceptional design and supply of air conditioners, while simultaneously providing fresh air and extraction to each hotel room, the main reception area and office, as well as laundry extraction and stairwell pressurisation. A total of 35 Samsung Medium Static Pressure (MSP) Duct S Inverter split units and 1 Samsung Maldives Inverter midwall unit were installed by industry experts, Air Select Air Conditioning & Ventilation.

Masked behind the ceiling, Samsung’s MSP Duct S Inverter uses advanced technology that provides powerful yet silent operation and outstanding heating and cooling performance which saves energy and money. An indoor airflow rate of up to 49 CMM ensures climate control of the large hotel building. The highly efficient Samsung Maldives is renowned for its Digital Inverter 8-Pole compressor which saves up to 68% of energy, making it the ideal choice for economical, energy-efficient climate control.

Beyond perfect temperatures, one of the first impressions that people get from any hotel is how comfortable they feel walking through the lobby, which because of COVID-19, now includes several safety precautions at the front door. O’Two Hotel guests enjoy added peace of mind that they are breathing purified air on arrival and throughout their hotel stay, thanks to cutting-edge Anti-Bacterial Allergy Control filters fitted inside each of the 36 installed air conditioners. This innovative air purification technology helps to remove airborne dust, allergens, bacteria, and other harmful pathogens for maximum air cleanliness, taking the feeling of being comfortable to new heights and creating a warm welcome for guests from check-in to checkout, all through winter and summer.

Fourways is proud to have provided the resources and expertise that help set the stage for extraordinary guest stays at the O’Two Hotel, where comfort and enjoyment reign supreme.
