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.

Pool wall construction begins in London basement pool

Pool Hall WallWork begins for the pool wall construction on a twin depth basement swimming pool in London. The walls are being constructed using the Quadlock Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) system and is being built on a reinforced slab installed by the existing site workers from Brookforge drawings.

The shallow water depth is 1.3m going down to a deep end water depth of 2m and the pool will be a skimmer pool with a 150mm freeboard to the surround floor tiles.

New build basement swimming pool

Digging a basement pool hallSite excavation work has started on a new build basement swimming pool in London. The pool will be 20 meters in length and will have 2 depths with sloped riser between them. The shallow water depth is 1.3m going down to a deep end water depth of 2m.

The pool will be a skimmer pool with a 150mm freeboard to the surround floor tiles, it will also benefit from a remotely controlled hidden thermal slatted cover.

The pool hall will be built from scratch and will be located below an existing garden.

Working closely with the architects and mira construction, Brookforge will be designing, building, tanking, tiling and piping up everything pool related.

The plant room and all the associated equipment will be installed and tested by Brookforge as well as the pool hall air handling, dehumidification and ducting systems. Read More…

Slatted thermal pool cover installed and tested in Pershore

A recently completed project in Worcestershire was a new build fully insulated deck level pool. It benefited from the latest energy saving technology in the automated plantroom and a remote controlled slatted thermal pool cover which is hidden away in the floor of the pool.

Working directly with the Architect from first conception meant that everything pool related could be taken into account during the pool hall design.

The final result is a contemporary and stylish pool that blend modernity with functionality.

Slatted thermal pool cover benefits

The benefits of a slatted thermal pool cover should not be underestimated; not only will it keep your pool water warm whilst you are not using it thus saving on the running costs. They also prevent water evaporation, meaning your dehumidification system will have less work to do keeping the pool hall humidity stable and thus protecting the fabric of your pool hall.

Commissioning Outdoor Overflow Pool

Outdoor overflow swimming pool

Testing Hidden Slatted CoverLuxury Slot Overflow PoolAn outdoor overflow pool is in the final stages of commissioning with the testing and calibrating of its thermal slatted cover.

Down on the south coast of England this pool was designed to be built using the Quadlock ICF system. Using an ICF system means the pool is highly insulated and the addition of a thermal slatted cover keeps heat losses to the minimum.

The features of this Outdoor Overflow Pool

This pool benefitted from a hidden slotted overflow system, where an overflow channel is fitted below a 30mm slot between the coping and surround tile. The tiles are supported on a stainless steel mesh preventing larger debris from entering the overflow system. The overflow water is channeled back to a balance tank which is then pumped back to the plantroom via a multicyclone pre-filter to remove any smaller yet visible debris. As the outdoor overflow pool is highly insulated on the floor and walls, a thermal slatted cover was installed within a hidden cave in the pool wall.
