GUIDING THE FUTURE OF SWIMMING POOLS

GUIDING THE FUTURE OF SWIMMING POOLS

Troldtekt A/S

 Across Europe there has been a surge in the swimming pool sector. With many more people staying at home and foreign travel restricted both domestic and commercial pool manufacturers have seen a rise in new builds and renovation of existing pools. Trends indicate that 2021 will see a further rise in local markets as more people cocoon and less people travel abroad. Commercial pool operators are also seeing a rise in popularity and are taking the opportunity of enforced closures to update and renew existing infrastructure. In the UK it is expected that now Brexit has been finalised, investors in UK hotels, Spas and High-end residences will drive the wet leisure market further. In a new feature on their website, leading acoustic panel manufacturer Troldtekt summarises the knowledge, trends and examples which will help influence the design of swimming centres today and in the future.  The feature includes 16 trends compiled by the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities. These cover everything from economics and digital features to new uses and products which influence the architecture of pools and their construction. Pools can be used for different purposes and by quite different groups of people. This places demand on designers and developers to provide perfect layout and solutions to create the best atmosphere.  One interesting aspect is how modern swimming centres need to satisfy many expectations from different types of user. For example one pool needs to accommodate the needs of elite swimmers with those people wanting to exercise, young families and wellness enthusiasts. Each group is looking for a different type of experience and unless planned, there is a risk of friction between them. Architects such as GPP Arkitekter and Bay Arch have succeeded in this balancing act as shown in the newly built Frederikssund Swimming Centre.  One of the most important aspects and one universally agreed across all types of user is the control of noise. For example, absorption of the loud sounds from splashing, shouting and playing is essential. This is why Troldtekt’s acoustic wood wool panels are often specified because of their durability, appearance and are natural breathable meaning they will absorb and release moisture making them perfect for wet area installations. Manufactured from certified wood, a 100% natural material, and cement extracted from Danish mineral resources, they achieve high levels of technical and acoustical performance and can be disposed of harmlessly, breaking down in the soil.  Founded on the Cradle-to-Cradle design concept, the natural and inherently sustainable panels are available in a variety of different surfaces and colours and contribute to a building’s BREEAM, DGNB and LEED ratings. In addition to their high sound absorption and tactile surface, they offer high durability and low cost lifecycle performance. Available in various sizes and in four grades from extreme to coarse, the panels can be left untreated or painted in virtually any RAL colour. The theme is available at https://www.troldtekt.com/news/themes/swimming-centres/ or https://bit.ly/2LJJiGU while samples, case studies and technical guidance is available from tel 01978 664255 or Troldtekt.co.uk.

Eccleshill Swimming Pool Roof

Eccleshill Swimming Pool Roof

Eagle Waterproofing Ltd

ObjectivesThe old felt roof on this building was tired, damaged from traffic over the years and failing. It was leaking in places which was causing damage to the building and had been holding water due to the lack of fall on most sections of the roof. The objective was to renew the roof, extend it’s life and create a fall to prevent the standing water.SolutionsThe existing felt roof was cleaned and all stone chippings present on the original roof were removed. Tapered insulation was then laid on the sections of the roof which had problems with standing water to create a fall towards the outlets. All other sections of the roof were insulated with a standard flat roof insulation.Eagle GR100SA Self-adhesive VCL was laid over the insulation as a carrier membrane to ensure the liquid coating had a suitablesurface to bond to and to ensure all joints in the insulation were sealed, ready for liquid coating.Ultraflex was then laid, fully reinforced using a wet on wet system over the VCL at a rate of 1.5Kg/M2. Once cured a further0.5Kg/M2 Ultraflex was laid over the surface before finishing with Ultratop.BenefitsThis building was transformed without the need to completely replace the existing roof structure, preserving and protecting the building whilst saving cost by leaving the original roof in place.The new roof now has a minimum lifespan of 25 years and a 25year guarantee, backed by Eagle waterproofing.Standing water is no longer a problem on this roof and all outlets are now working correctly, reducing maintenance work required.PROJECT INFORMATION ConstructionSwimming PoolProducts UsedUltraflexTrimVCLVCL PrimerConstructorHurricane RoofingSupplierRinus Roofing, Bradford“The transformation of this building speaks for itself.

BASWA acoustic AG

Acoustics are a particular issue in swimming pools due to the large areas of tiling, and because water itself is also highly reflective of sound. Hawkins\Brown architects needed a material that would provide high performance sound absorption whilst being compatible with the specialist environmental conditions of a pool. As this is within a school, speech intelligibility is of particular importance for learning – and the BASWA discretely provides this crucial function. BASWA was chosen for its high acoustic performance and system quality including the marble surface coating, which may be used in high humidity environments as standard.
