For high-end and luxury hotels to stand out in an increasingly competitive marketplace, a leisure centre, spa or pool can set you aside from your competition.
As the partner of Natare for the UK and Ireland, Wrightfield Pools can call on the expertise reponsible for the design, build and installation of some of the most impressive and awe inspiring resort pools in the world.
Reduced Space, Reduced Waste, Reduced Costs
Natare’s unique pool and filtration designs can elimate the need for a surge (or balance) tank. Combined with the reduced space requirements for the filtration frees up valuable space allowing for more revenue generating guest space such as additional gym equipment.
The Natare vacuum sand filtration system together with the lack of a surge tank, reduces the amount of water needed to backwash the system, reducing your water bill and helping to enhance your environmental credentials.
The Natare Advantage – Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore
When the Marina Bay Sands Hotel wanted the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool spanning all 3 towers and 57 storeys above the city, they turned to Natare Corporation. Whether you want a pool to rival Marina Bay Sands, a restoration of an aging existing pool or something inbetween, its reassuring to know that the expertise and experience that successfully designed, built and installed this world leading installation is available to you through Wrightfield Pools’ partnership with Natare.
Natare engineered this stainless steel swimming pool to allow for the swaying of the three skyscrapers in every direction. There are four movement joints beneath the main pools, designed to help them withstand the natural motion of the towers, and each joint has a unique range of motion. The total range of motion is 500 millimeters (19.68 inches). The SkyPark is designed for wind pressures of up to 2.5 kPa (5,933 lbs./ft² or 250 kg/m²) and wind speeds of up to 105 ft./s (32 m/s).
In addition to wind, the hotel towers are also subject to settlement in the earth over time, so engineers built and installed custom jack legs to allow for future adjustment at more than 500 points beneath the pool system. The pool also adjusts to maintain its level flow along the horizon of the infinity edge, even as the three buildings settle into the ground at different rates over the years. This jacking system is important primarily to ensure the infinity edge of the pool continues to function properly.
