The pool enclosure: safety and comfortable swimming

Compliant with the NF P 90-309 standard and correctly closed, the shelter is undoubtedly the most advanced version of pool protection: it allows to enjoy the pool safely while giving the possibility to swim in all weathers, under the shelter (unless it is extra-flat) and this in water that always remains perfectly clean. To choose your pool enclosure correctly, trust the ProAbris label, launched by the Fédération des Professionnels de la Piscine, which guarantees that the enclosure meets precise specifications: "Not all shelters have this label," warns Philippe Jungen, Abridéal technical director, "so it's a guarantee of quality for the consumer. Ours can take advantage of them, moreover, they are tested and proven by independent laboratories and show results much higher than those of the standard in terms of wind resistance (the shelter must resist to 100 kh/h according to the standard) and weight (45 kilos according to the standard)".

Swimming pool: choose your low or mid-high shelter carefully

If you are not comfortable with a shelter too imposing, you will probably prefer the low or mid-high shelter (up to 1.80 meters high) which will not require any administrative formality provided they are installed on an existing pool whose surface area is between 10 and 100 m² (unless the property is in a classified site or in a protected area). The quality of the materials is also a criterion of choice, confirms Philippe Jungen: "The roof of the low shelters is generally made of honeycomb polycarbonate, a material that will increase the temperature by 6 to 8 degrees, but some polycarbonates are guaranteed 10 years and treated anti UV for an excellent longevity in time. For the structure, also make sure that the powder-coated aluminum is certified Qualicoat ® and Qualimarine ® meaning that it is designed to withstand marine environments.
Different types of low or medium height shelters are marketed: removable shelters (they can be raised and even completely removed from the pool to clear the pool) being manual, it is recommended to choose models equipped with radio frequency remote control, simplifying the opening/closing to a single person. Sliding shelters slide open on one or both sides of the pool but require some storage space behind the pool (4 meters). The most popular at the moment are telescopic shelters made up of nested nesting modules that can be stored at the end of the pool. To open, some models have rails on both sides of the pool, others like Abridéal have developed patented systems: called IdéalSlide ®), the Abridéal system consists of an anti-tear guide rail placed on only one side of the pool which allows the shelter to always remain in the axis thus guaranteeing its good positioning.
The removable shelters are the least expensive (approximately 5,960 euros delivered and installed without options for a swimming pool of 8 x 4 m). Count approximately 7,995 euros for a sliding shelter and from 9,995 euros for a telescopic shelter.

The high-end shelter: the high-end protection

The main advantage of this high shelter (more than 1.80 meters high)? You will be able to walk upright inside, creating a comfortable living space around the pool area. Before you start, think of making a preliminary declaration with the town hall, even to ask for a building permit (classified zones...). In the high shelters category, it is up to you to choose between the telescopic shelter (same principle as for the low shelter, it allows the pool to be completely cleared in good weather), the semi-fixed shelter (only part of the pool can be cleared) and finally the fixed shelter (ideal when there is a lack of space). For increased quality, some manufacturers offer high shelters with tempered safety glass sides, such as those offered by Emmanuel Perrot to the Aqua Telescopic brand: "Our shelters are among the only ones in France to be CE certified: their manufacture in tempered safety glass is a real guarantee of longevity. The shelter will be stronger, more resistant to wind and vibrations and will remain very transparent, for a better integration into the landscape". Finally, even more upscale, we also find high shelters whose roof itself is glass: very design and better soundproofed, they are also much more expensive (between 25 and 30, 000 euros the shelter delivered, installed and guaranteed 10 years, against 20,000 euros for a polycarbonate honeycomb roof shelter).
