Can your business benefit from a cyclist drying room?
On the 13 September, thousands of people across the UK will be leaving their car keys behind in favour of taking to two wheels as their mode of transport to work.
Cycle to Work Day, which celebrates its fifth birthday this year, is a nationwide scheme to encourage adults across the UK to get on their bike and give cycle commuting a go for one day.
The success of the scheme has seen the growth of adults cycling to work and with more and more people continuing to ditch their cars in favour of taking their bikes, so the pressure for businesses to provide suitable drying facilities for wet clothing is on the increase.
Having a drying room in the building creates a dedicated space for this purpose and are an essential part of corporate social responsibility.
Calorex dehumidifiers provide the most efficient and cost effective method of drying. Compared to using heat alone, the potential energy savings are huge. Every unit of energy that a Calorex dehumidifier consumes, it will convert 2.5 times this amount to usable heat. In fact, compared to traditional heat and ventilation energy, cost savings of 75% are not unusual.
High-performance dehumidifiers recirculate the air and physically remove moisture from it. This alleviates the need to continuously reheat incoming air. Not only that, the units convert energy taken out of the room as moisture to provide useful heat to warm the room, accelerating the drying process.
You can turn any room into a drying room just by using a Calorex dehumidifier from outdoor pursuit centres to fire stations and modular buildings. Installation is straightforward, and the units have combined heating and drying so there is no need for separate heaters, thermostats, fans and extraction systems.
Calorex manufactures dehumidifiers in a range of sizes from the smaller wall mounted units to the large floor standing industrial sized systems.
All products are supported by an in-house applications department and nationwide service network.
