The First Step To Swimming Success

Transforming A Pool At The Push Of A Button Lift’O’s movable floor technology is new, innovative and is now available in the UK. The clever system works by inflating and deflating balls fixed under the structure to ensure the ascent and descent of the adjustable floor. When pressurised air is injected into the balloons located under the floor, they inflate and raise the floor. Composite feet are then automatically deployed to reinforce and sustain the structure. When the air is expelled from the balloons, the floor lowers. The choice of a composite material for the frame helps prevent corrosion and ensures durability. Given there are no hydraulic cylinders, cables or steel in the system, the costs linked to components and their maintenance are considerably reduced, and the risk of electrolysis and fluid leak in the water are prevented. Laying at the bottom of the pool, the movable floor allows owners to transform the pool into a patio by

simply pressing a button. Pool depth reduction is minimal as the thickness of Lift’O floor is only 15cm compared to 30 to 50cm for traditional floors and can be finished with a material that matches with the pool surround. The Lift’O floor technology meets the AFNOR NF P90-308 standard regarding safety covers and their fastening systems. Once the movable floor is in its raised position, access to the pool is impossible and the switch box is attached to a wall, well out of the reach of children. To help owners fully enjoy their new living area, the floor was designed to withstand a load of 50kg per m2. For example, 16 people on a 8mx4m pool. Lift’O’s movable floor technology is suitable for all types of pools providing there are two right angles and a straight base. Arch Enclosures 01444 411411

Stage Systems have launched Swim-dek – a new product which has been designed with swimming teachers in mind. The patent pending Swim-dek allows teachers to utilise the pool space more effectively meaning a potential increase in class sizes and reduced waiting lists, therefore maximising revenue and return on investment. The product is a strong, safe and linkable platform used in the swimming pool to provide a shallow zone in deeper water or to create a safe platform for children waiting at the side of the pool. By using Swim-dek, teachers can feel confident in the knowledge that both children and adults will feel secure in lessons. Swim-dek requires no tools to install and includes legs (at varied heights), a deck and a safety handrail. As a portable system, it will travel easily in the boot of a car between locations and when not in use, it can be safely stacked and stored until needed. All parts are manufactured in the UK, and it features a long ten year guarantee due to the durable materials used. Swim-dek is available in a wide range of colour finishes and bespoke branding is also a possibility. Stage Systems 01509 611021

Peace Of Mind With A Free Heatstar Commissioning Visit For those in the trade who are installing a new Heatstar Climate Control System, complete peace of mind is on offer directly from the company. Unlike some manufacturers, the Heatstar provides system commissioning visits completely free of charge – free labour, free parts and free consumables. And it’s easy to organise too. When the installation is nearing completion, simply contact Heatstar, confirm the product details and book your visit. This should take place when the installation is complete and at the point of ‘switch-on’. The visit usually takes between one and two hours and covers a checklist of over 120 different items covering all parts of the Heatstar system.

The staff who carry out these commissioning visits are fully trained and experienced Heatstar in-house service engineers. They will provide a full inspection and verify that the system has been installed correctly and is running efficiently. In order to achieve maximum operating

and energy saving efficiency from day one it is, of course, vital that Heatstar systems are installed correctly. If the installation of the equipment, ductworks, wiring and pipe work has been carried out according to the Heatstar design documents, the system should perform as intended. However, to have the whole system checked and commissioned by Heatstar gives both contractor and client added reassurance and peace of mind. On completion Heatstar also provide a Commissioning Certificate to show a ‘true’ diagnostic operating record of the new system. Heatstar 01983 521465 26/03/2018 16:28
