Leisure centre industry guidelines show that different activity rooms have different climates for ultimate comfort and performance, such as multi-purpose rooms around 12-18°C, fitness facilities between 16-18°C, changing rooms between 20-25°C and childhood play areas around 21°C. Due to these different requirements, a flexible system of various temperature devices connected to a single network streamlines the management of the facilities, allowing for remote management of the devices, automated email notifications of any problems and data accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world.
Due to the high intensity of exercise being done and the equipment being used, keeping a consistent temperature for your clients is essential. Alongside temperature, it can be useful to monitor humidity in gym areas to avoid damp and potential mould in the building, as well as ensuring your ventilation system is operating efficiently. In a gym facility, the IFA recommends the temperature to be around 18-20°C with a relative humidity of between 40-60% for facilities providing aerobics, weight training, cardio and Pilates activities.
According to industry standards, indoor pool air temperature should be around 1°C higher or lower than the water temperature and relative humidity kept between 50-70%. Pool recommendations themselves vary depending on the purpose of the pool, for example competitive swimming pools should be around 28°C, recreational 29°C, children’s teaching pools 31°C and babies/young children’s pools at 31°C. Monitoring pool temperature and air temperature can be done either with constant monitoring or spot checking, see below.
Perfect for remote monitoring in both indoor and outdoor applications, the EL-MOTE range of WiFi-connected data loggers automatically uploads data to the EasyLog Cloud for remote management and viewing of data as well as automated email alert should temperatures be logged out of the pre-set range.
The ideal option for both local and remote management of temperature as the EL-WiFi range both displays live temperature & humidity readings on its LCD screen and uploads data automatically to the Cloud via WiFi connection to be managed and viewed anywhere.
With product options including temperature & humidity monitor, a thermistor probe for specific monitoring and an ambient temperature logger for general room monitoring, there are a wide variety of options perfect for either a single logger or a network of multiple spanning different locations.
The EL-EnviroPad-TC is a robust, easy to use, multi-function handheld thermometer that takes and records temperature readings via the attached thermocouple probe, perfect for peforming and recording spot checks such as pool water temperature.
The EnviroPad has three main functions: Spot Measurement, Data Logging and Checklist, meaning you can manage and store multiple elements of your business in one place.
