Swimming Pool Considerations

Along with the size, style and design of swimming pools, there are a number of other considerations to take into account at the planning stage. Remember this will be a moist environment which greatly affects the type of products which can be used here. The walls and floor will be subject to constant water pressure. Flooring for instance must be non slip whether it’s ceramic tiles, mosaic tiles, terracotta, stone or vinyl. Walls will need some form of waterproofing, and all decor should be ok to use in frequently wetted areas. A consequence of bad decisions with decor in these surroundings has led in the past to a constant and expensive need for replacement or refurbishment.

The doors in this kind of area could be exposed to a high traffic volume in addition to persistent moisture and corrosive chemicals. In places like leisure centres, public swimming pools and sports facilities, doors need to be tough, waterproof and hygienic. It’s crucial that products used here will not warp, rot or deteriorate even after years of use.

Doors which are made from materials like timber or laminate, may have to be constantly replaced due to moisture damage, which can get pretty costly. They are also vulnerable to bacteria growth and can be heavy making them unsuitable for wet areas. Even steel doors can rust and are pricey to repair so not a good choice.

Doors used around swimming pools have to withstand extreme temperatures, damp conditions and resist corrosion. UPVC or aluminium powder coated doors are ideal for anywhere like this, and are often used for swimming pools. You will find the perfect door for your swimming pool area at specialists like Trade Window Services. They have an excellent range of UPVC or aluminium bi-fold, multi-fold, sliding folding doors. These doors create a stunning visual effect and are used by domestic or commercial customers for a variety of applications.
