In order to ensure maximum compliance with the measures provided for by the regulations is used Steela technology that ensures maximum precision in the installation.

Our technology also allows us to realize temporary system that can be assembled and disassembled with extreme rapidity while guaranteeing the aforementioned precision and construction characteristics.

Some customizations are exclusive to our systems:

  • Movable walls that can divide the pool (transforming the 50 mt pool into two 25 mt ones).
  • Mobile bottom that allows the use in competitive conditions with a depth of three meters but also in the presence of children with depth adjusted to 50 cm.
  • Safety cushion through the use of air bubbles that cushions the dives not properly executed to prevent accidents in training.
  • Removable heads that serve as a base for the starting blocks
  • Starting blocks
  • Underwater Var systems for water polo
  • Sub- aquatic vision portholes
  • Immersed audio systems for synchronized swimming

Agonistic Pools measurements

One of the most complete sports is swimming, which provides an even workout for all the muscles of the body. This is why it is among the sports most recommended by doctors to keep fit, control weight and get a toned body shape. In the Olympic pool is practiced swimming for the Olympic Games but also numerous sporting events dedicated to swimming, of international importance. The measurements of this pool are:

  • Length – 50 meters
  • Width – 25 meters
  • Number of lanes – 10
  • Lane width – 2,5 meters

In addition, 5 meters before the end of the pool are placed flags that are a visual reference point for athletes. This is a device that allows swimmers to identify how many meters are left to the end of the pool. Finally, the Olympic pool must be designed according to the facility characteristics, plumbing, maintenance and water treatment required by FINA regulations.
