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.

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.

Beach entry pools

Beach entry pools

Beach entry pools

Discover a new concept for your swimming experience: recreate the beach in your pool.

 

The world of swimming pools is changing and leading us to new pool concepts such as beach entry pools. Also known as zero entry pools, instead of having steps there’s a slope that gradually enters into the water.

The main purpose is that the swimming pool looks like a natural beach. Some even add other elements like pebbles or real sand around the pool in order to increase this beach feeling. Decorating the garden with stones and leafy plants will make the whole landscape look like a real paradise. The idea is to recreate a natural space in a garden generating a great visual impact.

If you’re considering this kind of pool, please take into account that you’ll need a large area to build it on. Beach entry pools require much more space than a traditional pool because of the gradual slope. So, size matters in this case.

What are the advantages of a beach entry pool?

The main advantage of a beach entry pool is the accessibility. Children, elderly and people with disabilities find it easier to enter this kind of swimming pools. No more ladder or stairs!

Apart from this, the slope itself is a perfect spot to lay down and sunbathe. Shallower water gets warm faster.  

Which pool liner most closely resembles sand?

The ideal choice for a zero entry pool is RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH, specifically two designs:

 

  • Relax: its similarity to fine, beach sand makes it ideal for exotic atmospheres that will take you faraway. Dive into Caribbean-like crystal-clear waters with turquoise hues thanks to its soft, pleasant feel on your skin.
  • Sublime: with its rough, rocky surface it emulates fine travertine marble, its light tones also give the impression of a beach atmosphere. The perfect lining for trendy, modern pools.   

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is the first 3D reinforced liner with a 2 mm thickness, which makes it the most resistant liner in the market. The TOUCH range is available in 6 different colours that simulate natural elements in both colour and texture.

Both ALKORPLAN TOUCH Relax and Sublime are perfect to line a zero entry pool because of the color they confer to water, making it look like a seaside landscape. Apart from this, they have a non-slip finish, which is particularly appropriate for this kind of pool access. Any other pool liner wouldn’t guarantee the slip resistance. On the contrary, RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH are non-slip pool liners. This way you don’t have to worry about the safety at your pool.

Have you ever thought about building a beach entry pool in your backyard? The ideal solution fort he whole family which is both functional and ornamental all year long! So, what do you prefer: pool or beach? Or both?

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH, inspired by nature

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH, inspired by nature

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH, 3D pool liners inspired by nature

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is the new 2mm reinforced membrane by ALKORPLAN. Thanks to its technical qualities and attractive designs, it has become the strongest, most durable and resistant lining on the market.

TOUCH complements the range of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN liners, which have become the most widely used lining for pools in the world.

The big difference between the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH reinforced liner and the other reinforced liners on the market is its thickness. The normal thickness of reinforced lining is 1.5 mm whereas RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is the first 2mm reinforced liner, which gives it greater resistance and durability.

The RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH liner revolutionises the market for pool lining, made up of two flexible sheets of PVC fused and totally waterproof, it doubly guarantees no water loss. But, in addition, these two sheets are reinforced on the inside with a mesh of highly resistant polyester, which acts like a spine and makes the reinforced liner a robust product with great mechanical resistance.

The special thickness of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH allows its designs to have relief and provides an exceptional and pleasant touch. The six models add personality to any pool and allow you to create unique, personal spaces in your garden.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH designs are inspired by nature and each of them is designed to line pools forming part of different atmospheres:

Authentic
ideal for lining pools in natural, rustic surroundings with pebbles or lots of greenery. Country pools with the texture of clay or sandstone.

Vanity 
for spectacular, ostentatious pools whose uniqueness stimulates the vanity of their owners in the face of their neighbours.

Relax
with a colour similar to fine, beach sand, it is ideal for exotic atmospheres that transport you to faraway, Caribbean beaches with crystal-clear, turquoise hues.

Sublime
emulates fine travertine marble and is the perfect lining for trendy, modern pools.

Elegance
with elegant, dark veins like those in slate, it is the lining for cosmopolitan pools, turning the water a deep blue colour that is captivating from the very start

Prestige
pools that evoke a paradise of volcanic rock, especially designed for minimalist, designer environments.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH installation

To install RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH reinforced membrane, you must first condition the pool following these steps:

  • Adapt the basin to check the condition of the pool equipment, repair cracks and clean impurities from the walls and bottom.
  • Disinfect the basin to make sure there are no remains of organic matter.
  • Attach the fixtures to the basin.
  • Place the geotextile on the wall and floor. Thanks to its fungicide treatment, it prevents the proliferation of fungi between the reinforced lining and the basin, in addition to helping conceal any possible irregularities in the basin.
  • Place and weld the reinforced liner using heat sealing, which must always be done by a professional authorised by RENOLIT ALKORPLAN.

As RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is a 2mm liner, we recommend edge-to-edge welding to avoid the bump that would be caused by traditional overlapping, as the thickness is much more evident than with normal lining.

The aim of edge-to-edge welding is to achieve a better aesthetic finish as, if it is done correctly, the welding will be invisible and you may not even always need to use liquid PVC to seal it. That is why it is recommendable —although not compulsory— especially on the bottom as that is where welding is more visible.

To make the bottom completely flat when welding edge to edge, you should use the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN fungicide geotextile and the edge-to-edge welding strip.

–          RENOLIT ALKORPLAN fungicide geotextile

It is used as protective layer between the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN lining and the pool surface to prevent the proliferation of bacteria, fungus and microorganisms and conceal any irregular surfaces that the pool may have before the lining is applied. It also provides a much more pleasant sensation for the bather when walking over the lining. We recommend applying it under all types of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced lining.

–          Edge-to-edge welding strip

A base strip that is used under edge-to-edge welding. It should be used with geotextile on pool bottoms to compensate for the bump from the strip next to joints and to provide the bather with a more pleasant sensation when stepping on the bottom.

Once you have welded all of the pool liners, we recommend using RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH joint sealer – a specific liquid PVC for finishing welding, whether overlapping or edge-to-edge. Its colour, texture and composition mean it combines perfectly with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH liners and its improved formula makes it very resistant to the passage of time and decoration.

See how pools lined with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH reinforced liners look and line your pool with the best lining on the market.
