commercial grade saunas to hotels and the fledgling leisure club market. As the sector grew so did Dalesauna with additional products such as GRP (fibreglass) steam rooms and spa pools being designed and installed. As new materials have become available sauna, steam room and spa pools have been further developed with Dalesauna remaining at the fore- front for innovation such as infra- red saunas, glass fronts, feature showers, rasuls, loungers, Corion seating, led lighting, essence and salt systems along with more energy efficient equipment. Although still concentrating its


effort on designing, manufacturing, installing and servicing new bespoke Spa areas for hotels, leisure facilities and gyms, some of the refurbishments Dalesauna has recently extended its portfolio to include refurbishing existing Spa/ Wellness areas. Refurbishments completed in the last three years are: Four Seasons Hotel (Park Lane), Lucknam Park (Gloucestershire), Mottram Hall (Cheshire), Ribby Hall Spa Hotel (Lancashire), Rockcliffe Hall Teeside) and Thermae Bath Spa (Bath). On these projects the experience

of the Dalesauna team has proven essential in overcoming the challenges of refurbishing these high quality existing facilities. In recent years Dalesauna has also helped existing clients such as Ribby Hall and Titanic Mills to further develop outdoor Spa areas, beyond the standard outdoor spa pool, to include luxurious saunas and feature showers. Over the last decade Dalesauna

has increasingly worked alongside numerous architects and developers on prestigious installations in exclusive property developments such as One Hyde Park and Embassy Gardens along with a number of celebrity homes also based in London. This trend

has also been spreading across other UK cities with recent projects completed in Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle and several in North Yorkshire. Dalesauna is not limited to

installing spa/wellness equipment but also has a service department dedicated not only to after sales care on its own products but also those installed by competitors. A full range of services is provided on swimming pool and spa equipment using experienced engineers, based across the UK, who are all electrically trained. The combination of well-stocked spares and the engineers’ experience usually ensures they can repair equipment rather than simply replace it. This approach is not only more cost effective for clients in the long term but much more environmentally friendly. To complete the circle of total

care, Dalesauna, through its consumables division, supply specialist water treatment chemicals for pools and spa baths such as liquid Sodium Hypochlorite, Calcium Hypochlorite, Bromine granules, water quality testing equipment and tablets. In addition specialist oil based essences have been developed to enhance the users experience within both sauna and steam rooms. Consumable items and spare parts for all Dalesauna supplied equipment, manufactured by leading brands such as EOS, Nordmann and WDT are held in our central warehouse and can be supplied to be fitted by others.

Dalesauna has not been immune

to the impact of Covid-19 but remains optimistic that the vaccination programme should enable its partners in the leisure sector to re-open to the general public eager to utilise their services. The management team’s plan to purchase Dalesauna Ltd from its founder (Stephen Hipps), having been delayed due to the pandemic, was finally completed on 2 March 2021, ensuring the ongoing stability of the business for employees and customers alike.
