Altitude accessible rooms
Using our altitude rooms
Sleeping at altitude should form part of a coordinated training plan and not be used for recreational purposes. For safety reasons, you would be required to slowly acclimatise to your required altitude level.
Four Altitude bedrooms are fully DDA compliant, allowing disabled athletes to benefit from hypoxic conditions. Our simulated altitude system goes from sea level to 5000m (Everest base camp) allowing you to sleep high and train low.
Athletes have long been aware of the benefits of sleeping at altitude which, when incorporated in to your training routine, can have significant performance gains.
Our altitude bedrooms are fed with a constant flow of air, either hypoxic or normoxic, to prevent an increase in respired carbon dioxide, and also bacteria and odours. The bathroom and lobby areas are separate from the altitude chamber and act as a buffer to best serve the hypoxic air supply to the bedroom.
Once the room is at the desired altitude, the oxygen percentage will remain within +/-0.1%. Each room has 2 oxygen sensors which regulate the oxygen concentration in the air flow at either 10%, 7% or regular 20.9% oxygen content.
It takes approximately 70 minutes for the room to come up to 2000m atitude and 240 minutes to come up to 5000m. This can be pre-programmed on a timer so that your room is at the desired altitude for your arrival.
