the Specification, and under the direction of the Corporation Electricity
The electrical work in this particular type of building, which is subject to
the destructive influence of salt water and moisture, had to be designed and
carried out with the greatest of care, and the
artistic appearance of the building had also to be very carefully kept in mind.
A special feature of the fittings in the Plunge Bath Hall is that they are
wholly of " Vita " glass, with " Lamplough " lamps inside, allowing the maximum
number of ultra-violet rays to pass through to the bathers when in use.
The installation also includes a complete system of Power and Heating

Radiant Heat Lamps, Heating, Cooking, etc.
The whole installation has been carried out in accordance with the
latest approved practice, and from the point of view of public safety, leaves
nothing to be desired.
