If you ever thought that Dantherm only supply air handling units for swimming pools, then think again as a team behind a new leisure centre in Cambridgeshire are tapping into our range of units for non pool applications.

The Hive in Ely opened its doors to the public in May 2018 with an eight-lane 25-meter swimming pool, a learner pool with moveable floor, a 120-station gym floor, two activity studios and a four-court sports hall.

Dantherm UK will support the new leisure centre with its Dantherm DanX units that provide fresh air dehumidification to its swimming pools but, as well as this, three of Dantherm’s WD units will also be fitted within the centre to cater for many of its ‘non pool’ applications.

Within The Hive, which is a £13.5 million project, areas such as the wet changing rooms and the fitness suites will also benefit from fresh air dehumidification thanks to Dantherm’s WD range, which are specifically designed for applications such as general commercial development.

For Darren Bell, at Design Installation Services who has been overseeing areas of the project in Ely, Dantherm’s extensive range of air handling products that cater for non pool applications, was his first port of call when looking for a solution.

“As soon as the plans were put together for this project we had no hesitation selecting Dantherm’s WD range as well as the DanX units for the swimming pools. We have always had a good relationship with Dantherm and we have used their WD range on several projects previously,” admitted Bell.

“They are extremely well made; are good quality and they are competitively priced against anything else on the market.

“The installation had one or two problems, but we have been fully supported by Dantherm along the way and we would highly recommend their products and services to anybody involved in similar projects to ours.”

The WD range are high quality but affordable air handling units which are available in a variety of specifications and flexible configurations. Units can be horizontal, double stacked, side-by-side or vertically aligned to made use of small spaces.

The machines feature excellent quality door furniture and low leakage door seals, weatherproof options and many optional features.

Speaking about the project, Pool Ventilation Sales Manager Jamie Herdman said: “We have been delighted to have been involved in a really exciting project and we are confident that the WD range will be an important and vital component to this new leisure centre.”
