Leading UK-based manufacturer, Washroom Washroom has installed Perspex® Frost (LuciteLux® Frost in the USA) from its Luminoso range as part of a stunning refurbishment project for Fitness First health clubs in London.
Overseen by main contractor, Admiral Construction, with Antarchitecture leading the design, Washroom was tasked with refurbishing the shower and changing room facilities at the London club. Its Luminoso cubicle range, made with 12mm Perspex® cast acrylic, was chosen instead of glass as the ideal solution for the project specification. A uniform frost appearance on both sides of the panels ensures the cubicles provide superior comfort and peace of mind for users.
With hundreds of members passing through the doors of Fitness First’s South Kensington branch each month, the installation had to be able to withstand high levels of traffic and remain in pristine condition. The company required a high quality specification yet practical design, which is where Washroom’s expert use of Perspex® came in. The Luminoso range, featuring stainless steel tubular head rail and pedestal legs, can be specified in any Perspex® colour, which allowed the architects to create a wholly unique, on-brand space for Fitness First.
Fitness First is the largest privately owned heath club group in the world. It provides facilities for more than 1 million members at 540 clubs across 21 countries and is passionate about delivering the ultimate workout experience, which means that every detail counts. Following the success of this first installation, around 40 more of the health club’s UK branches are likely to be included in a large-scale refurbishment programme over the next two years.
Trevor Bowers, Managing Director of Washroom Washroom, said: “We source Perspex® for many of our projects from Perspex Distribution Limited and have found it give us a consistently high quality, reliable solution that meets both the creative and performance specifications that we are working to in all of our projects. We are proud to be able to offer a completely bespoke service and are looking forward to working with Fitness First over the coming years on the continuing refurbishment programme across the UK.”
