Outdoor cooling is considered a luxury to some. In hot environments, keeping workers exposed to the heat safe is paramount. It also reduces liabilities on the job.  As workers endure warm working conditions, the failure to hydrate can quickly lead to dehydration. Aside from the health risks this poses for workers, dehydrated workers are also at greater risk on the job due to delayed reaction time.  Evaporative cooling from Portacool, as well as responsible hydration practices, can help reduce liabilities in warm working conditions by keeping the shop cool and comfortable to ensure productivity stays on track. 


Portacool has been providing cooling comfort from the company's manufacturing facility in Center, Texas, for more than 25 years. The company was looking for ways to improve and update its offerings, so it developed a line of varying sizes and capacities in portable evaporative coolers to meet a variety of shop needs with the Jetstream series. The Jetstream 270 is the largest in the line-up of four.
