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.

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!

Pool lined with ALKORPLAN TOUCH Prestige

Pool lined with ALKORPLAN TOUCH Prestige

Ever heard of the Slovene Riviera? The beautiful coastline of Slovenia is located on the Gulf of Trieste, by the Adriatic Sea. A charming location with charming households like this wonderful one embellished with a pool lined with ALKORPLAN TOUCH Prestige.

A private house located in the seaside resort and spa town of Portorose (Portorož), whose owners were having problems with the previous lining system, which had been installed back in 2005. The old 1.5 mm blue liner had been wrongly installed, what caused water leaks on many spots.

Spambient, a pool building company from Slovenia specialised in swimming pools and whirlpools was in charge of the complete pool repair on this occasion. Refurbishing a pool lined with reinforced membrane is very easy and it will not take more than a few days depending on the pool dimensions. That is exactly one of the many advantages of the on site lining: simple installation without additional building work.

Since the previous lining had also had problems of colour fading, this time the landlords opted for a pool lined with ALKORPLAN TOUCH Prestige: a 2 mm thick pool liner inspired by nature provided with great durability. A 3D relief which reproduces volcanic rock and perfectly matches with the red-coloured façade and the surrounding pool deck.

The 13.5 x 5.8 m overflow pool with a variable depth which ranges from 1.4 to 2.1 m, has four inbuilt underwater windows, an unusual but impressive pool design. It is also equiped with water attractions, a submerged pool roller cover and an inverter driven heat pump.

In a nutshell, a pool that stands out not only because of its wonderful setting with gorgeous seaview, but also because of the pool characteristics, that make it unique.

Pool lining for spas

Pool lining for spas

Pool lining for spas

Only pioneers dare to try new applications for already existing products. We are very thankful for the never-ending thirst for innovation of our customers.

Gleomar Piscinas, a swimming pool builder from Gran Canaria was commissioned to build the spa of the Hotel Bohemia Suites & Spa. In order to do so they tested for the first time RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH pool linings for spas not only on the basin but also on the adjacent walls and showers.

Many pool builders are sceptical about lining spas with on-site liners because of the high water temperatures. The pool builder form the Canary Islands was, in contrast, completeley convinced that RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is a suitable pool lining for spas.

Both pool and whirlpool tub were lined with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Vanity whereas the walls were lined with TOUCH Elegance. The shower walls were also on-site lined. In order to guarantee the watertighness not only was the reinforced pool liner glued with dispersion adhesive  but also welded.

The outcome of this colour combination is impressive. 150 sqm of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Vanity and 24 sqm of ALKORPLAN TOUCH Elegance were needed in order to line the 50 cbm the spa takes up. 

Why should you choose ALKORPLAN TOUCH as your pool lining for spas?

2 mm thickness

Thanks to its 2 mm thickness, it is the most resistant on-site liner in the market and, thus, the perfect pool lining for spas.

10 years guarantee watertightness

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN on-site liners are not only a decorative element but also a long-lasting waterproofing lining system.

3D relief inspired by nature

Its original design makes each pool unique.

As many pool fittings as you want

Powerful massage jets and chairs surely provide relaxation, what in turn displays the versatility of reinforced membranes. You can install as many pool fittings as you want and wherever you want.  

Make yourself comfortable and look for a reliable pool builder who will help you repair your old spa or build a new one. If you are looking for a RENOLIT certified installer in your area, please contact us and we will help you find one.

Panorama swimming pool in the Alps

Panorama swimming pool in the Alps

Panorama swimming pool in the Alps

The „Gruebi-Bad“ was inaugurated back in 1931. The hoteliers of Adelboden joined forces in order to build a 50m panorama swimming pool to seasonally adjust the tourism in this Swiss region. 

 

They commissioned the architect Beda Hefti in order to build this panorama swimming pool. He had already taken part in the construction of Alpine swimming pools in Interlaken and Gstaadt, and designed a functional, high-quality open-air swimming pool following a timeless style and fitting it into the hillside.

Today, almost 90 years later, and after a complete refurbishment, this panorama swimming pool looks like it used to be on its opening day in 1931. Nonetheless, in 2011 it was close to a shutdown because the citizens of Adelboden rejected the refurbishment project, but luckily another refurbishment proposal in 2016 was accepted.

 

 

The last refurbishment of the panorama swimming pool took place in 2004 and limited itself to reducing the size of the pool to 25m because of the landslide. Since then the „Gruebi-Bad” was just the half of what it originally was and both diving platform and band shell had been removed.

In 2018 the panorama swimming pool was closed in order to start the refurbishing. Taking into account that the whole facility is under a preservation order, the following refurbishment works took place:

  • Renovation of the sanitary facilities.
  • Adjustment of the swimming-pool technology.
  • Rebuilding the children’s pool to its original round form.
  • Pool basin extension to its original 50 m and repairing the wall cracks.
  • Pool relining with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME Silver by the Swiss on-site liner installer Kiwi GmbH.
  • Rebuilding of both diving platform and band shell.
  • Mounting a one-of-a-kind overflow gutter.

Taking into account that this panorama swimming pool is located on a landslide where there is danger of slipping and it moves every year downhill, the architects of Architekturbüro Akkurat Bauatelier had to come up with an ingenious idea to solve this construction challenge. The gutter watergate had to be adjustable, so that the water would uniformly drain in spite of the inclined location of the pool. 

The alignment with the original design from Beda Hefti has given back its genuine splendour to the Gruebi-Bad since it now corresponds to the original state from 1931 except for some small details. We wish lots of fun to all the citizens of Adelboden and visitors in this reopened swimming pool, which is by the way one of the few 50 m open-air swimming pools in the Swiss Alps.

Does your pool need a refurbishment? Would you like to build a pool in your holiday home in the south of Spain? Piscina Liner is exactly what you are looking for!

 

Piscina Liner are pool specialists in Andalusia and Algarve, although they carry out works throughout Spain and Portugal. They define themselves as Spain and Portugal’s premier swimming pool liner installation specialist. And indeed they are! We are so convinced of their RENOLIT ALKORPLAN pool liner installations that you’ll find several of their pools in our catalogues and websites.

They offer new builds and commercial applications, but have specialised in refurbishing leaking pools whether it be cracked pools or leaking prefabricated pools. A leaking pool structure not only costs thousands in water but also can do unknown damage to the pool structure or even buildings in the surrounding area.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN on-site lining is the most highly cost effective and long lasting solution for leaking pools. Not only does it ensure a leak free pool, but also will your pool look gorgeous.

 

 

Among all the amazing projects Piscina Liner has carried out, that’s probably one of our favourite ones: the infinity pool refurbishment in Malaga with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS Selene and RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Vanity for the steps. An amazing colour combination for your pool!

The 9x4x1.5 m swimming pool in Andalusia displayed the usual problems of tiled pools: the glass mosaic tiles were falling off and the pool structure was leaking. Apart from this, the overflow channel was too high, what hindered the sea views. An absolute no go! The pool reform involved rectifying the infinity pool overflow channel, changing the jets, drain and other fittings, smoothing the walls down and repairing the damaged area in order to install the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS Selene pool liner.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS is the best solution for those who do not want to give up having a tiled pool in their garden without the high maintenance requirements it implies. It looks like ceramic tiles but with all the advantages that a reinforced pool liner offers.

Piscina Liner recommended installing RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS in the pool shell, whose blue waters contrast well with both sky and ocean and RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Vanity on the steps for a white marble finishing. A perfect solution in both technical and aesthetical terms.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME Blue Fresh

Nothing is more resistant!

 

Our partner CLEVER PISCINE from Guanzate in the province of Como in Lombardy presents us this beautiful pool. A pool renovation in the sports centre Bluetime Nuoto; a pool of 20m x 8m x 1,35m where RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME Blue Fresh has been installed.

In the middle of the green park of La Lura this public swimming pool hosts all sorts of courses: aqua gag (soft gymnastic exercises), aqua gym and aqua cycling, among others. That is why the reinforced liner XTREME Blue Fresh was suggested and chosen for this specific renovation project.  RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME was the first chlorine-resistant reinforced membrane launched on the market, resistant even under extreme conditions. 

The colour of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME Blue Fresh makes the surrounding area of the pool and the other structural elements stand up. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME is suitable for indoor pools with high temperatures and a high number of bathers, for public swimming pools, for pools where aggressive chemical products are being used and also for pool renovations because of stains or discoloration. Nothing is more resistant than RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME; available in 7 different colours.

What’s more, don’t think of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME as a reinforced pool liner only for public swimming pools. It’s also foreseen to be used in private pools since it’s ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy their pool rather than worry about its maintenance.

Are you proud of your swimming pool and you would like to show it to the rest of the world? Are you a pool builder with amazing projects made with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced pool liner? Then please contact us. We look forward to receiving your pictures!

The green lagoon of Portomaso residential complex

The green lagoon of Portomaso residential complex

The green lagoon of Portomaso residential complex

 

Portomaso is an exclusive beachfront residential area which covers 128,000 sqm, surrounded by a marina for yachts with 110 berths. A magnificent 1.6 km stretch of sea face.

Located in St. Julians on Malta, the project owners expected it to be one of the most renowned residencies in the Mediterranean… and indeed they made it! They have turned it into a first class project with high quality standards regarding real state in Malta. The green lagoon located in the middle of the complex is the perfect eye-catcher.  

The project includes the 5 star hotel Hilton Malta, a beach club, a health and leisure centre, an office building, a conference centre and several shops and restaurants. The star of the group of buildings is the central green lagoon, where ground floor residents have direct access to. This huge 6,000 m2 swimming pool has been lined with our reinforced membrane RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH RELAX green.

This reinforced pool liner was exclusively designed for this specific project. The owner of the building was looking for a green version of ALKORPLAN TOUCH. He didn’t want to give up the characteristics of a 3D print inspired by nature, but in a green version.

Both construction and installation were carried out by DOLPHIN POOLS, our distributor in Malta. It took almost two years from the start of the negotiations until the final definition of the project, including how our special TOUCH RELAX should look like for this luxury residential project. 

Likewise, a specific liquid PVC had to be developed in order to seal the seams in the same color of the reinforced membrane. The ALKORPLAN TOUCH pool liner was installed in stages and took approximately one month.

Are you working on a big pool project and you would like to give it a personal touch? First of all, please check out our product range. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, let’s talk it over!  

The view from an infinity pool

The view from an infinity pool

The view from an infinity pool

The possibilities are endless when we think about building a pool: the shape, the stairs, the colour of the pool liner, the pool deck material, the decoration in the surrounding area, the pool lighting…

 

In the case of this infinity pool everything was perfectly adjusted. Apart from enjoying a breathtaking view thanks to its excellent location, the pool owner has made the right choice and the result is gorgeous.

  • Rustic natural stone was chosen for the pool deck. Stone has several advantages. First of all, it does not become slippery when wet. Safety is one of the main elements to take into consideration when planning a swimming pool. Secondly, stone is easy to clean and maintain.
  • Concerning the pool lining, the choice was naturally RENOLIT ALKORPLAN: TOUCH Elegance in this specific case. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is a 2 mm thick reinforced pool lining, which remains flexible during its installation. Thus, it can adapt to any shape and to any pool basin surface. TOUCH Elegance looks like slate and gives water a deep blue tone.
  • The access to the pool is unique: the stairs are a combination of wavy and straight lines, what confers a dynamic and aesthetic effect. This staircase is the good adaptability of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN to irregular shapes. It can be installed on any shape.
  • The edge of this swimming pool is elevated, so that you can have a sit without getting out of the water.
  • Last but not least, let’s say a few words about the shape of this infinity pool. When you submerge into its water, you get an endless view of the beautiful landscape around it. Even if the basin has a standard rectangular shape, the front edge aligns the valley, where gaze, nature and blue skies fuse together.

Infinity pool, infinity edge pool or vanishing edge pool: call it whatever you like. This kind of swimming pool looks fabulous. How would an infinity pool look like in your garden? 🙂

New Beetle transformed into a hot tub

New Beetle transformed into a hot tub

Once again, RENOLIT ALKORPLAN was present at the Piscine Global Europe, the leading swimming pool and wellnes event, were we could witness the mots innovating tech related to pool lifestyle. At every swimming pool event, you can stumble upon the most curious things.
One of the things that caught our eye this year, was a project cretated by Plastica Pools. They successfully redesigned a Volks Wagen New Beetle into a Hot Tub, using our reinforced membrane: RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Vanity to coat the interior and Elegance to cover the headrest.

The New Beetle drew in the crowds who were amazed to witness a fully functioning hot tub inside of the car! Plastica Pools made sure it wasn’t just for show as they even managed to replace the car engine with a pool filter to maintain the water in pristine condition. When the hot tub is functioning, our reinforced membranes assure complete watertightness and not one tiny drop of water is spilled.

To add a couple of stylish details to the design, Plastica Pools added various LED lightning to create an impressive ambiance on both the interior and the exterior of the car. In summary, It simply has all the elements of a luxury hot tub to fully relax in! We are grateful and proud that they chose to use our liners for this original and authentic project and we are amazed by the stunning end result.
