COMMERCIAL COVER SYSTEMS

As the name suggests, Glatz Pioneer’s Budget Range is aimed at clients with a smaller budget but who still want a quality product

• Commercial / Public Pool Covers ‘Hands Free’ (Glatz’s own unique design) • Floor Mounted Systems for Commercial / Public Pools • Wall Mounted Covers (limited by pool width). A best seller in the range is the Thermo-Roll. An exclusive to Galtz, this foam cover has a lay flat quality that allows the cover to be welded extremely smoothly to give a very strong and attractive finish. It complements any pool hall without any nasty creases or calcium deposits. Its wipe clean surface is easy to maintain and very weldable should any on site repairs become necessary. It comes with a five year warranty and is available in light blue, light grey and white to blend with any internal decor. One of the more recent additions to the company’s line up is their Budget Range and as the name suggests, it’s aimed at clients with a smaller budget but who still want a quality product. These systems are available with all of the refinements of the Glatz motorised unit but with a budget cover.

SOME REEL-Y GOOD SYSTEMS FROM CERTIKIN AND SCP! Looking for a premium style roller but without the cost? Look no further than Certikin’s Eco-Reel Roller, which combines high quality stainless steel with a robust telescopic aluminium tube system and all for incredible value for money. Commercial units are now available for bubble covers 6-8m wide, with the maximum cover size being 130m2 and length 16m.

Suitable for domestic use as well, the roller is available in three styles – mobile, fixedfloor and fixed-wall – each offering three size ranges from 2.6m to 5.7m wide and is suitable for bubble covers up to 12m in length. The Eco-Reel’s features include easy turn crank handle and adjustable cover to roller kit for all models. SCP UK also have some great reel systems for commercial pools with their Monaco range. Produced by Intopool and available in four styles – mobile, fixed, piggy back and bench – each features a 6” diameter aluminium tube and 316 grade stainless steel stands. All are offered with Manual Commercial SmartGear (3 to 1 reduction gearbox) – meaning the crank handle can be disengaged so when pulling the cover onto the pool, for safety reasons, it won’t rotate. The popular bench system is also available with a 24 volt motor with comprehensive control panel. Operated by key, this makes using the reel system an even easier task.

WORKING 24 HOURS A DAY – HEATSAVR ADJUSTS TO POOL ACTIVITY LEVELS For over 50 years, scientists have known that a monolayer (one molecule thick) spread across the surface of a liquid can dramatically reduce evaporation and energy loss. Many companies attempted to develop a technology, but

CASE STUDY HEATSAVR IS INVISIBLE FRIEND AT NOTTINGHAMSHIRE SPA Eden Hall is a luxury day spa in Nottinghamshire, providing pampering treatments and aquatic facilities within a beautiful grade II listed building. Visitors can enjoy soaking in one of the two, tenperson outdoor hot tubs or in the indoor salt water vitality pool. The Spa was facing the challenge of controlling energy costs and reducing maintenance issues within the facility and attracted by the energy saving potential of Heatsavr and before installing the system, purchased two electrical meters so that before and after energy readings could be made on the hot tubs. The site’s technical manager confirmed a reduction of 35% on electricity costs to power the

hot tubs by installing Heatsavr, particularly as the hot tubs maintain a large amount of heat during the night when not in use. An attempt to install traditional covers in the past had unfortunately been unsuccessful.

In addition to the energy savings, there was also no need to replace the hot tub heaters on an annual basis. The temperature in the tubs is maintained at 38°C but by using Heatsavr, the strain they used to be under has been reduced. Within the pool hall, where the steel ceiling beams above the salt water pool used to require refurbishment every three months, the reduction in humidity has meant that annual treatment is sufficient. The windows within the spa are now free of moisture too and the environment is much more comfortable for users and staff.
