Air Conditioning Hire

Gyms and leisure centres

Deploying a temporary air conditioning system within a gym will make your environment safer and more comfortable for people wishing to exercise. Lower temperatures can allow athletes to train without suffering the fatigue and headaches associated with overexertion inside a warm indoor facility. As the UK’s largest supplier of air conditioning hire services, we stock a wide range of equipment that is designed for use inside gyms, leisure centres and sporting facilities.

Having air conditioning in gyms should be a primary consideration for a number of reasons, with several benefits for people exercising inside. A source of cooling will stop athletes getting too hot and enduring unnecessary discomfort caused by dehydration or heat exhaustion. It is however important to ensure that your gym isn’t excessively cool, as this will increase the risk of visitors suffering injuries if they have not warmed up properly.

Even for those undertaking recreational exercise, a stable temperature is a critical factor in achieving consistency and measuring any performance improvements over a period of time. Ultimately, though, you want your members to enjoy spending time inside your facilities which means regulating the temperature is a must. Air conditioning plays a fundamental role in instilling the optimum indoor conditions which also includes helping to remove any excess moisture in the air.

During the summer months in particular, large or highly populated gyms can be badly affected by high levels of humidity. This can be both uncomfortable and unproductive for people looking to exercise and should be addressed immediately. In these situations, evaporative cooler units are ideal for overcoming such issues as they provide instant, efficient temperature relief once installed and filled with water.

Sports Facilities

When seasonal temperatures are high, it is essential that you ensure your sports facility or leisure centre remains an appealing place in which to train or exercise. This may require you to commit to an air conditioning hire arrangement in order to maintain a safe and desirable ambient temperature.

It goes without saying that a cooler environment can make a great deal of difference to carrying out a fitness plan or participating in a competitive sport. Even minimal changes can have a significant impact and draw your members’ focus away from the very reason they visited your premises. Enabling people to commit to their planned activities is a basic necessity but forms an integral part of your company’s reputation.

Although evaporative coolers are a popular and common solution for such facilities, there are other occasions where a different type of air conditioning unit could be preferred. If you are unsure about which equipment is most suitable for your application, call us today on 0800 211 611. We will arrange for one of our local experts to visit site and propose a solution based solely on your needs and handle all aspects of any hire including delivery, installation and collection.
