Prestigious pools: commercial pool projects

We are over the moon to announce the official launching of our newest e-book: Prestigious Pools. A collection of commercial pool projects around the world.

First of all we want to thank all those facilities, pool builders and installers who have collaborated with this project. Without them it would not have been possible.

Worldwide every year, thousands of swimming pools are being designed for public and communal use. These are both new projects as well as renovations.

Unlike private pools, public pools demand greater reliability of their elements because of their intensive use. It requires the use of resistant and durable materials to give building companies and pool owners peace of mind.

A bad choice of the lining can result in the temporary closure of the swimming pool, resulting in huge economic losses.

Hundreds of hotels, campsites, sports and entertainment facilities, waterparks, wellness centres and neighbour communities, increasingly opt for RENOLIT to line their pools; not only because of its good installation performance and use, but also because of its beauty.

Are you the happy owner of a hotel or a campsite whose crown jewel is a pool lined with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN on-site liner? We would be glad to include your facilities in our e-book!

Or maybe your facility does not have a pool yet? Do not forget that “activity holiday” has become a trendy way of holiday making in the past few years, and a hotel with a wellness area is a must, whether it is an indoor pool or an outdoor pool.

We are slowly leaving behind the Corona pandemic and we are all willing to travel again. According to the most important booking platforms “hotel with pool” is one of the most popular searches on internet. Make sure you don‘t miss that train.

Start planning your hotel pool right away so that your guests will be able to enjoy it next season. We can help you find a commercial pool expert in your area.

Rely on RENOLIT: hundreds of pools back us up. This catalogue is just a sample. Be also a part of our “Prestigious Pools” e-book. We are glad about every single commercial pool project. Contact us.

The same Elegance, a new texture

The same Elegance, a new texture

The same Elegance, a new texture

 

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Elegance has reinvented itself and is now two-in-one. And what’s more, its beauty, colour and grace remain the same. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Elegance is at last slip-resistant.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH, the leading lining system, with 3D texture inspired by nature and 2 mm thickness for greater durability and resistance has bound the circle. RENOLIT wants the whole TOUCH range not only to be beautiful and watertight, but also to be safe for swimmers.

Now all the designs of the TOUCH product range are slip-resistant. This way it will not be necessary to take a supplementary anti-slip reinforced membrane for the access and low-water areas, ramps or steps in order to avoid accidents or slips among bathers.

The required certification in public pools is “C category”. And it is also also recommended in private pools: in transit areas, ramps, zero-entries, low-water areas and steps. Now the whole TOUCH product range is provided with the slip-resistance “C” category certification.

Until now this was possible with all the TOUCH designs except for the Elegance, whose installation required a slip-resistant membrane apart from the main product. Finally this is not required anymore!

This upgrade does not alter either the colour or the tonality of the reinforced membrane. The gorgeous deep blue watercolour still looks the same.  Such a beautiful and characteristic colour that it has turned the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Elegance on-site liner into one of the flagship designs of the product range.

Country estate in Dorset

Blessed with superb beaches as well as gorgeous nature, Dorset is the perfect holiday destination.  

Silverlake is a country estate in Dorset of luxury holiday homes based around a beautiful lake with panoramic views. The ultimate retreat for families who want to take advantage of nature and wildlife within a safe gated community.

Surrounded by great outdoors, the residential community made up of sustainable second homes set among woodland and lakes has to offer plenty of opportunities for boating, fishing, cycling and running on private footpaths.

The crowning jewel of the whole complex is without a doubt the Hurricane Spa: a superbly designed relaxing area with outdoor pool, roof terrace, sauna, gym, library, tennis court and lounge. A residents-only family spa where expert therapists are on hand for beauty treatments. 

The outdoor heated infinity pool overlooking the serene waters of the lake is the icing on the cake for this sanctuary of tranquillity and calmness.

A modern 25 m swimming pool lined with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Elegance, a sleek reinforced membrane that emulates black slate and that perfectly matches the overall design, which evokes a mixture of Dorset beach house and Mediterranean beach club.

The pool builder from Dorchester, Cresta Leisure, was in charge of the pool project in collaboration with the on-site installer Aquaflex from Salisbury. Cresta Leisure won the bronze SPATA award 2020 in the Commercial Pool of the Year category for Silverlake’s country estate in Dorset.

The British Pool & Hot Tub Awards showcase the best examples of design, construction, installation and innovation in the UK. We congratulate both Cresta Leisure and Aquaflex on this well-deserved recognition. Best wishes for more successes in the future!

New design TOUCH Origin

New design TOUCH Origin

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH, the range of reinforced pool membranes inspired in nature, the most resistant and long-lasting on the market thanks to their 2 mm thickness, officially presents the design that will set trends this summer: Origin.

Origin is the on site pool liner inspired in one of the most elegant and imperishable stones we can find on our beloved Planet Earth, in rivers, mountains, forests … granite.

Granite, a timeless and indestructible rock, which humanity has used on countless occasions to construct its most emblematic buildings and outstanding monuments, for its nobility and elegance.

Like the rest of the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH range, Origin is a totally innovative and original design that has all the characteristics of quality, beauty, watertightness and resistance offered by the rest of the TOUCH range.

TOUCH Origin, with its visual appearance and spectacular touch, has a granitic texture that everyone knows, and thanks to its combination of black and grey spots on a white background it gives the water a brilliant metallic blue colour with sparkling grey highlights.

 

Characteristics and installation

In regard to its installation, we want to point out that Origin is an ideal design for membrane installers who have little or no experience, because thanks to its granite pattern any irregularities in the basin are attenuated and its joints are quite discreet.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Origin has extraordinary flexibility to adapt to any shape of the basin, making installation quick and simple. It has a “C” grade slipperiness certificate, and like all RENOLIT ALKORPLAN pool liners it offers a written 10-year watertightness guarantee.

It is suitable for installing with overlap welds, like the rest of the TOUCH range, although for an impeccable finish, on the floor we recommend the butt welding technique because, in addition, Origin is perfect for concealing joints and dissimulating any imperfection in the pool.

Tile pool repair

Tile pool repair

This cracked and leaking pool located in Marbella needed an urgent repair. Poor construction and ground movement were to blame.

The pool had cracked across the width and from the middle towards one corner, what caused water leaks in the structure.  When the structure is leaking, regrouting or replacing the glass mosaic tiles will not help since they are not waterproof. 

Traditional tile pool repair based on using repair mortar or filling the cracks with silicone does not prove successful in the long term. You have to deal with the underlying problem because if the ground moves slightly again, the crack will reopen.

Once a pool starts cracking, there is no turning back: it needs to be repaired quickly to prevent more damage in the structure itself or even in the surrounding area. Not only will the steel in the structure become exposed and will start to corrode, but also will the water running under the pool structure soften the ground. Thus, the problem will further aggravate.

To sum up, even though mosaic tiled pools are an absolute eye-catcher, this pool lining option implies a series of disadvantages including dirty grout lines, loose or broken tiles, cut feel and difficult maintenance. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS, on the other hand, requires low-maintenance, is easy to clean and provides the beautiful finish of tiled pools.

Piscina Liner are pool specialists in Andalusia and Algarve with many years of experience in repairing cracked and leaking pools. Whenever they deal with a tile pool repair where the customer does not want to give up this aesthetic finish, they recommend RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS.

“No more loose tiles, sharp edges, leaks and difficult maintenance.”

Applying a RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced membrane over the existing pool shell creates a barrier for the water and is guaranteed to be waterproof. In this specific case, the landlords chose the distinguished light grey ALKORPLAN CERAMICS Selene in order to undergo the tile pool repair. Pools do not always have to be blue! All the beauty of a tiled pool with none of the downsides of a tiled pool.
