In 2021 the Variopool team will start working in the new brand new Stadsbad in Ostend (Belgium) A wonderful project in which we will incorporate our now-known products. The special feature of this pool is that there is a combination of sports, accommodation and living.
Swimming pool complex Stadsbad Ostend
The swimming complex consists of four pools. The 50 x 25 meter long competition pool will be equipped with 10 lanes and a grandstand that can accommodate 300 people. The instructional basin is 4.2 meters deep and measures 25 x 10 meter. The recreation zone consists of two pools: the nursery and toddler pool and the recreation pool for older children. A whirlpool and sauna are provided.
Variopool will provide a complete package there. A movable floor of 25 x 17 meters will be installed in the competition pool, which can go up to a water depth of 2.5 meters. In the instruction pool there is also a movable floor of size 25 x 10, and this goes to a depth of 4.2 meters.
Both pools are equipped with a disabled platform and an integrated staircase. In addition, the competition pool will be provided with a cover for the part where there is no movable floor. A drowning detection system will also be installed in the same pool as an extra set of eyes for the lifeguard. To make the whole complete there will be a timekeeping for competitive swimming and water polo which can be projected on a LED screen of 5 x 3 meters.
The construction of Stadsbad Ostend is progressing steadily and is on schedule. The basins will be tiled in the coming months and then Variopool can start with the assembly. More information via this link.
