Hidden slatted cover on bespoke spa

Hidden Slatted Cover On Round Spa ClosingThis large, bespoke, outdoor spa required a cover to keep in heat and keep out the debris. Due to the spa size and onsite storage problems a standard lift on cover was out of the question.

Brookforge pool builders where contacted to find a solution to this unique problem. Collaborating with a highly experienced spa cover manufacturer, the solution was to hide a fully automated hidden slatted cover in the base of the spa below a twin hatch door. The submersible in-roller motor was activated via a pool side remote control keeping it’s operation as simple as is possible

The thermal slatted cover was custom made to ensure it fitted tightly to the unique shape and top steps in the spa.

Hydrotherapy Spa Completed

Hydrotherapy Spa Completion

A New Hydrotherapy Spa has been completed a school for children with disabilities and is now fully up and running.

Sensory hydrotherapy spa massage pool

This hydrotherapy spa was constructed using the Quadlock ICF system so the shell was highly insulated and kept heat losses are kept to a minimum.

As the Spa had a beach area with grill covered overflow, it required a balance tank which was an integral part of the shell construction.

The spas features include:

  • Fully insulated spa structure.
  • Four seats (for spa users and assistants when massage bed is in operation).
  • A twin strip hydrotherapy air massage bed.
  • Fully customisable underwater colour changing LED lights which will add to the sensory element.
  • Overflow edge with associated with balance tank.
  • Environmental control system with dehumidification, heat recovery, heating of both air and water.

The Hydrotherapy pool will be both stimulating and relaxing for all its users.

Concrete Poured, Moreton in Marsh

The swimming pool, balance tanks, spa and steps have been poured

Concrete Poured Successfully

This project comprises of a large spa bath, uniquely shaped deck level pool and balance tanks for each. The pool will have an insulated slatted cover which will be hidden when closed. Colour changing LED lights will be used to light up the water. These are controllable and compatible with automation systems.

Insulation

Insulation has been a priority throughout this project. The project location is fairly exposed and is predominantly in the shade. Insulation panels have been installed externally and Quad-lock panels forming the pool’s internal structure. The slab will also be insulated, as will the base in the spa. The purpose of this insulation is minimise heat loss through the structure, thus saving potentially thousands compared to an uninsulated pool. The insulated slatted cover will help to counteract heat loss through evaporation.
