“Environmental control including hypoxic (altitude) environments has become a fundamental element for training, preparation, acclimatization and rehabilitation. The precise control of these environments is a complex, but crucial task particularly when combining environments (i.e. cold and altitude, heat and humidity) and multiple exercising individuals. Having commissioned Sporting Edge to build a chamber at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre whilst I was Director of Science and Research for the EIS, I know that Sporting Edge provide the ultimate in environmental control facilities with the highest quality after sales care. If I were to build another environmental facility it would be the specialists at Sporting Edge that I turn to.”

“We’ve enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Sporting Edge over a long period of time, enabling us to build, maintain and regularly upgrade a bespoke, state of the art, hypoxic training facility. This is used week-in, week-out for our athletes preparing for the Olympics, as well as for research purposes at The Centre for Health, Applied Sport and Exercise Science (CHASES). I would not hesitate in recommending Sporting Edge to athletes or sports science and medicine practitioners.”

“Having used other UK based altitude companies, I found Sporting Edge to be the best by far! Their professionalism and conduct are spot on and have allowed a smooth installation, especially given we had so many stakeholders involved. Sporting Edge considers every aspect of the install and ensure anyone with any concerns have their concerns answered or provided an alternative. The products are fantastic and easy to operate, I would 100% recommend!”

“One of the unique features of The Third Space is our hypoxic chamber, and Sporting Edge have provided the equipment and service right from the start.Considering the constant use our chamber gets, the equipment has proven to be remarkably resilient, and the back-up and service we get from Sporting Edge is always first class. I only have great things to say about the fantastic service we continue to receive from Dave and his team!”

“The English Institute of Sport acquired a large, extreme environmental chamber from Sporting Edge/TISS in 2006 and since then, this chamber has been in use on a weekly and often daily-basis. The chamber has consistently met the wide and varying range of demands placed upon it, producing many different combinations of temperature, humidity and simulated altitude, some of which have been quite extreme. The chamber continues to meet all of our requirements for performance improvement, rehabilitation and pre-acclimatization and the support, service and advice we get from Sporting Edge is superb. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of Sporting Edge to any user requiring a similar high performance facility.”

“Sporting Edge has given us a professional, friendly and bespoke service. They have provided us with a system that functions well and if things go wrong they are very responsive and deal with any issues promptly. In my opinion they provide a good quality service at a competitive price that is coupled by good after-sales care that is second to no-one in the UK market.“

“At Liverpool John Moores University we commissioned two environmental chambers from a UK based company to provide high specification dual altitude and high temperature chambers of large size. We were dismayed to find that after many problems running these chambers in the first year they were not fit for purpose. The significant challenge of providing simultaneous altitude and high environmental temperature proved way beyond the capacity and expertise of this company to deliver.

However, Dave and his team at Sporting Edge were able to provide a solution to the multiple problems left behind by their competitors and have very successfully re-engineered these facilities. I can now say with complete confidence that after significant testing (both by Sporting Edge and ourselves), these chambers are now functioning at designated capacity and we are very pleased with them.

Therefore I can thoroughly recommend Dave and his company as having the requisite engineering knowledge and skill to deliver these custom and important laboratories. My best recommendation would be that they are highly professional and leave no stone unturned to satisfy the customer.“
