Removable bubble cover for swimming pools

Buitink Technology realized a removable and insulated air cushion roof for the new swimming pool ''De Krommerijn'' in Utrecht (The Netherlands).

The roof consists of 11 air cushions with a total surface of approximately 1.600 sqm. The cushions are composed of two layers of coated fabric. The bottom layer of the air cushions is provided with a layer of vapor proof film, on top of which 10 cm of flexible insulation material is fixed. The air cushions are fixed on 12 beams with a span of 26 m. The beam structure is stabilised by tension rods.

In summer the air cushions are removed, creating an open-air swimming pool in stead. After summer  the cushions are re-installed again and the swimming pool is winter proof!
