Recreation & Leisure – Dehumidification & Moisture Removal

Atmospheres that are generally warmer in temperature, frequently populated and have large surface areas of water or ice are at a greater risk of high humidities being present.

Public swimming pools, ice rinks, leisure centres, and health clubs all fall into this category. At dehum, we have extensive experience dealing with the array of problems that uncontrolled humidity in these types of environments can cause, including:

  • Fog
  • Bad Ice
  • Mould
  • High energy costs
  • Odours
  • Structural degradation

In ice rinks for example, the walls, ceilings and pipe work are all cooled as a result of their proximity to a large ice surface.  In order to prevent condensation forming on these cold surfaces, humidity needs to be controlled and an extremely low dew point of between 4-60C achieved.

The custom-designed specialist equipment that we develop, install and service can reduce all of these problems and create the perfect, comfortable and healthy indoor climate.

     

Creating the right environment can also reduce the energy used on site.  dehum has worked hard to develop its equipment and with the introduction of the new ranges in 2015 and 2016, our equipment is the most energy efficient on the market.

The benefits of the new systems have been seen in swimming pools for example. Up to 80% of the running cost in this type of application is down to the air handling equipment, so improvements here can be very dramatic. Furthermore, the correct application of humidity control and air movement will improve the environment for users as well as reducing evaporation from the pool, again reducing energy on site. Although we specialise in humidity control, understanding drying and air movement ensures a design that maximises the potential of dry air.

The growing demand for health clubs and gymnasia has meant an increase in application in this field as well. With Spin Classes, Zumba, Cross Training and TRX rooms to name a few, the harder the workout the higher the moisture load. With rooms kept cooler to support training, the risk of condensation increases. Smooth surfaces with high activity increases the risk of slips and falls even more. A dehum unit will keep the area condensation free and surfaces safe all year round.
