Swimming-pool refurbishment gives year-round use

Swimming pool
A new enclosure and heating system from Nordair/Niche enables this swimming pool in Maidenhead to be used all year round.
A new heating system from Nordair/Niche now enables Claire’s Court School in Maidenhead to use its swimming pool all year round, maintaining its competitive edge against local rivals. The 18x7 m pool was enclosed by a Perspex structure but could not be used in the winter because of condensation building up in the roof and uncomfortably low temperatures. Refurbishment work involved replacing the 40-year-old dome cover with an aluminium-framed polycarbonate pool enclosure from Arqualand and installing heating. A Niche gas-fired LSD350 unit heater with an output of 103 kW was mounted externally. It delivers warm air via a louvred grille at a velocity to ensure even heat distribution.
