Mounts Baths

Mounts Baths

Mounts Baths has many of its original features and is a listed designated Grade II building, a principal reason for its listing is that it’s a particularly good example of a Modern Movement swimming pool.


Brief

Northampton Borough Council (NBC) in partnership with Northampton Leisure Trust (NLT) and with the support of Sport England, Swim England and Northamptonshire Sport has made considerable improvements to Mounts Baths swimming changing rooms.

With the changing areas being fully refurbished, the centre required doors that had moisture resistance, clean-ability, humidity resistance, chlorine resistance.


Solution

The age of the building and its 1936 Art Deco style made the project seem complex, however Dortek were able to supply the leisure centre with hinged GRP double and single doors, with GRP frames.

The client and architect thought the doors looked superb and were delighted with the overall outcome.
