It has a longer

open time to improve productivity and is easier to handle on the job site thanks to its lightweight and smooth, non-sanded, easy-trowel formula.” Enhanced with superior adhesion for all types of glass tile applications indoor and outdoor, including pools, spas, showers and more, Glass Tile Adhesive Lite meets ANSI A118.15 requirements, the highest standard for polymer-modified adhesives.

Jet Swim Athlete is the newest member of Pahlén’s Jet Swim family of counter-current swimming units and is available through Golden Coast. The principle of this stainless steel unit is based on the conventional type of unit where the pump is preferably placed behind the wall unit. Similar to the company’s Jet Swim Motion, the Athlete model houses two oval jets placed above each other with the lower one pointed 5° downward in order to lift the body of the swimmer towards the surface of the pool which results in a much more natural swimming experience. The 4 kW 3-phase bronze pump equipped with an IE3motor has a continuous performance/capacity of 68 m³/h. The wider angle of the two oval jets allows for a wider, and as such, more comfortable swimming area and the fact that air is not injected in the (return) water while in operation keeps the swimming surface more flat than other conventional units. Jet Swim Athlete activates from the water by means of a pneumatic switch, the water return can also be controlled while being in the pool. Where Jet Swim Motion is a guarantee for pure family fun, the Jet Swim Athlete focuses on those who want to improve their swimming technique and those who want to exercise on a regular basis. All components in the unit are designed with focus on durability and sustainability. Jet Swim Athlete is mainly made of acid-proof stainless steel EN 1.4404 and fulfills European Pool standards EN16582 and EN16713. Golden Coast 01271 378100 www.goldenc.com
