New Type Of Flexible Poolside Grid For A High-level Look With its flexible 723 Design poolside grid, emco Bau has provided a unique way of covering pool overflow channels. This innovation consists of a rigid PVC cassette serving to hold tiles for moistureexposed barefoot areas with a thickness of at least 7mm. The product, which is suited for straight edged pool configurations, enables the covering of overflow channels with the tile material used on the pool surround, producing a seamless and visually appealing look. The PVC cassette is prefabricated at the factory so that together with the tiles its dimensions are pre-coordinated to suit site-specific frame conditions. At the same time the grid design guarantees water drainage while complying with standard bar spacing. The German manufacturer supplies the PVC cassette plus spare accessories and detailed plans together with laying and bonding instructions. With the new tile grid, the manufacturer is responding to the rising demand for aesthetically appealing high-level solutions, particularly within the domestic pool sector. The visible deck-level arrangement is formed by three rows of tiles running along the pool edge and mostly covering the PVC cassette under it and the overflow channel. With a current preference for tiles in dark or muted colours, the PVC cassette is available in deep black as standard but a white option is also available. The PVC cassette consists of grid bars to of high-grade PVC set at right angles tile the pool edge to guarantee optimum the bonding on site. The spacing between both individual profiles was selected to ensure water drainage and high load-bearing capacity. Individual adaptation of the tile grid to site-specific frame conditions is also possible. The PVC cassette is suitable for overflow channels with a width of between 150 and 300mm. The overall height, including tiles, may be between about 22 and 42mm, a while the individual elements achieve maximum length of 500mm.
