With a movable floor, on-deck swimming pools can accommodate different requirements. In a moving floor pool, the floor can be adjusted to any depth thus setting a particular depth for swimming or other activities. Depending on the pre-set water depth, a movable floor may function as (1) a swimming pool floor, (2) a Jacuzzi seat or (3) a dance floor integrated within the teak deck. Within the yacht building industry, Hellebrekers is valued for our outstanding skills in moving-floor technology. Even in swimming pools with glass floors or glass walls, we are able to subtly implement movable floors.
Plug & Play swimming pool
Normally, yacht pools are equipped with space-consuming support systems installed in the hold. This means these pools – some of which have complex shapes – need to be incorporated in the yacht’s hull. In order to make the pool installation process run more efficiently, Hellebrekers created the revolutionary Plug & Play swimming pool.
The Plug & Play pool consists of composite materials and is prefabricated in a form that includes all swimming pool features. Even the movable floor is pre-assembled. Based on 3D models of the yacht hull and technological ingenuity, the pool and all its features fit perfectly within a designated aperture in the hull. Subsequently, the Plug & Play pool can be easily connected to the yacht’s general control system. The aperture available for the pool remains open, as the pool will be installed in the deck last. The below deck area remains accessible during the yacht building process, for instance for the installation of large components such as climate control units, engines or drive systems. Thus, the work of other construction partners at the shipyard becomes less complicated.
