STAINLESS STEEL SOLUTIONS exposure to sunlight, it is easy to clean and its metallic tone provides more beautiful and top-quality finishes to a home’s pool area. Anyone sensitive to the environmental impact of the products they purchase can rest assured: stainless steel is environmentally friendly and totally recyclable. AstralPool has therefore added to its range with the launch of three solutions for enhancing a pool’s finish with stainless steel. LumiPlus FlexiNiche is AstralPool’s new LED projector solution that adapts to any type of new-build or existing pool, as it can be fitted in niches of 180 to 230mm in diameter by just adjusting the screws. Ideal for public, hotel and residential pools, and now available in a stainless steel version (all in stainless steel or with an ABS body and stainless steel embellisher). The High-Water Level Skimmer is another of the solutions available in stainless steel and its main feature is that it gives the visual effect of an overflow pool, as it enables the water line to be placed just below the coping stone (approximately +/-4 cm). The stainless steel embellishers round off this range of ABS pool accessories and enable existing pools originally built with ABS materials to be upgraded.
ASTRALPOOL OFFER ONE-PIECE OPTIONS In addition to offering smaller stainless steel components, AstralPool UK Ltd have supplied a number of complete stainless steel pools ranging from commercial applications to high-end developments. Due to their intrinsic link with the manufacturers through its parent company Fluidra, AstralPool are well placed to build on the existing technical expertise by introducing further R&D of the pools, an example being where different flooring finish options are being developed to provide customers with a variety of styles to choose from.

SCANDANAVIAN STYLE WITH GOLDEN COAST When it comes to pool fittings that are well built but also look great, stainless steel never goes out of style. It complements other materials effortlessly, whether it’s used alongside wood, tiles, concrete and more. Achieving a deluxe finish is easy, as leading wet leisure distributor Golden Coast offers a comprehensive range of stainless steel fixtures from the industry’s bestloved brands, such as renowned Swedish manufacturer Pahlén.

nozzles and skimmers. “The Pahlén wide-mouth skimmer has been designed with the look of the pool surround in mind,” said Adam Clark, Sales Director at Golden Coast. “In place of an unsightly skimmer lid, the basket can be accessed from the skimmer’s mouth, and it’s this kind of smart thinking that can help set a pool build apart.” Golden Coast also provides a range of Pahlén stainless-steel counter-current units, allowing owners to get the most out of their pool without compromising on aesthetic and performance. The Pahlén Jet Swim Motion unit is designed around a pair of oval nozzles, with the lower nozzle directed downwards for a more even distribution of streams within the water – helping users focus on strength and conditioning.
