How do you make a swimming pool more versatile? By installing a moving pool floor.
With the ability to be retro-fitted to an existing pool a moving pool floor from Wrightfield will increase the versalility of your pool, enabling the depth to be varied, or the floor to be fully raised allowing the space to be used for something else entirely, all at the push of a button.
A moving pool floor can allow for a variety of movement – permitting the user to set the deep and shallow end depths separately and tilt the floor. Management of the pool depth is controlled by a touch screen control panel at poolside, making any adjustments simple.
The Technology Behind Moving Pool Floors
Varying The Pool Floor Depth
The floor depth is varied by a selection of cables and pulleys under the floor and powered by hydraulic rams located in a nearby plant room. The advantage to having the rams outside of the water is that in the unlikely event that there is a problem with one of the rams, it is easily accessible and will not leak oil or grease into the pool environment – an expensive and inconvenient problem.
The frame of the pool is made from stainless steel beams to provide the high strength and durability against the water and pool chemicals. This frame is then surrounded by foam filled buoyancy packs to cause the floor to be naturally buoyant.
The floor movement is controlled by cables attached to the underside of the floor, working against the floor’s natural buoyancy. These cables are diverted back to the plant room, where they are driven by hydraulic rams. The frame is finished with Polypropylene copolymer (PPC) panels, embossed to provide a low-slip surface. These panels have excellent resistance to corrosion and chemicals, with high tensile strength making them ideal for a pool floor. The floor panels are then recessed and lane lines are factory fitted to ensure a high quality, long lasting pool floor for your facility
