There is an inherent need for roofing of one kind or another for private swimming pools. Swimming pool roofing allows the pool itself and the spaces surrounding to be used in all seasons. When the pool area is roofed, it is not affected from extreme weather fluctuations – neither in summer nor in winter.
In the summertime, the roofing can serve as a means of thermal insulation, reducing heat stress, while in winter, the pool roofing protects against rain and wind while also insulating against the cold weather. This makes it possible to offer the pool services year-round, providing the bathers with a space protected against the outside weather, which they can use as much as they want whenever they want. The roofing serves also to provide shade, which is especially important during the summers, when the heat can be exceedingly stressful both inside and outside the pool.
Roofing Pools Using Multilayer Plazit-Polygal Sheets
Plazit-Polygal manufactures multilayer sheets from thermoplastic polycarbonate. This is a lightweight material while at the same time it is extremely strong, breakage-resistant and featuring a degree of transparency that makes it suitable also for pool roofing. Plazit-Polygal’s multilayered sheets feature several main properties: thermal insulation, mechanical strength, flexibility (can be installed on an arched structure subject to the allowable radius for each sheet thickness), full filtering of UV radiation – properties that make them ideal for roofing swimming pools.
Roofing with Plazit-Polygal multilayer sheets is appropriate for all types of swimming pools, therapeutic pools of all sorts – hydrotherapy or pools in which aquatic physiotherapy is practiced. The roofing may be transparent or shading (Polyshade Color) with preplanned division of the pool roof and as needed.
Filtering of dangerous UV radiation is an important factor in roofing swimming pools since pools are, by nature, places where most of the bathers’ body is exposed. Therefore prolonged exposure to solar radiation can endanger them. When, on the other hand, the pool is protected with radiation-filtering roofing, this ensures the bathers’ safety and they can stay in or out of the water safely for long periods of time.
Plazit-Polygal Multilayer Sheets – Advantages
Plazit-Polygal’s plastic sheets are extremely resistant to breakage and strong winds. They are thermally insulating, they also are noise-reducing sheets. The acoustic insulation reduces penetration of outside noise into the enclosed, roofed area, thereby helping improve the quality of the stay in the pool and its surroundings. When it comes to private swimming pools hosting large numbers of bathers, this can be a highly significant advantage, especially during the crowded summer months.
In therapy pools as well, in private home pools or in health centers and spas, noise damping is an important advantage particularly considering that hydrotherapy ought to be done in a peaceful atmosphere, conducive to peace and tranquility.
