Specifying doors in a leisure centre can be a daunting process particularly around the swimming pool area. The growing demands of hygiene legislation and increasing pressure on leisure facilities to ensure performance match the demands of the environment, mean that there are now more elements to consider than ever before.
Waterproof doors need to be impervious to moisture, lightweight, strong and durable to withstand heavy usage. They also need to be hygienic and aesthetically pleasing.
Our waterproof doors are a timber free, one-piece moulded construction which prevents internal decay to door structures or chemical and biological attacks. Simply put, this means the door will not rust, rot, or warp. They are easy to clean and require minimal maintenance and are also more hygienic than timber or laminate doors. Elements such as steam, chlorine and other chemicals/cleaning agents will not affect the composure of these doors.
Timber and laminate doors are not only potentially weaker than GRP doors, and thus more easily damaged, but can also pose a higher risk, as a knock or chip may invite organic materials (dirt) to enter and fester, inevitably bacteria will reproduce and thrive. These types of door are virtually impossible to keep clean effectively. Timber or laminate doors may be adequate for general office settings but not for areas where cleanliness is of utmost importance. These reasons are why GRP is the material of choice for the modern architects of leisure construction.
We manufacturer an extensive range of waterproof doors for specific areas where moisture levels are high. These include:
- Swimming pools
- Changing areas
