Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre

UK flume and water slide specialists Country Leisure Fibreglass have recently replaced the family flume ride at Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre in Leamington Spa.

The project involved removing and disposing of the old flume including all existing steel supports and a corroded staircase that no longer conformed to current regulations.

The new flume layout was designed to follow a similar path and include a new modular fibreglass staircase with platform.

All new support steel was manufactured from mild steel, hot dipped galvanised to BS.EN.1461 treated with Mordant T-wash and decorated with a two pack epoxy polyurethane paint system.

Existing floor tiles and screed were removed locally to expose the structural concrete slab and the positions of new support bases were set-out and marked on site using digital survey equipment.

A new flume ride control system was fitted consisting of LED traffic lights triggered by high speed detection sensors to manage flume entry and assist staff supervision. The system also included a ride counter facility to record the number of users.

Country Leisure Fibreglass worked closely with local building contractors to complete the project for Warwick District Council.
