51.25m x 20m pool with movable floor and traversable boom.
Water treatment, moveable floor and traversable boom.
Prior to the design of the traversable boom at Loughborough, booms had been installed in the UK that had taken up to 30 minutes to move 25m. A brief for the traversable boom was agreed that the movement time should be a maximum time of 15 minutes. In order to achieve this a number of specific design criteria were incorporated into the system, including:
The commissioning of the boom demonstrated that the traversable boom could be moved a distance of 25m in a time as short as 8 minutes.
The water treatment system is specifically designed to cater for the bather loads planned for this centre of excellence – this has resulted in lower capital and lower operating costs.
