Security Covers for Swimming Pools
The swimming pools are places that provide unique moments of happiness. Unfortunately they are also responsible for tragic moments, such as the death of children and animals. Nowadays, according to APSI (Association for the promotion of child safety), the death by drowning is the second cause of accidental death among children, happening 79% of them in swimming pools.
In the majority of developed countries there is legislation that forces all the swimming pools to be correctly protected, so that these accidents do not occur. The French standard, NF P 90-308, one of the strictest ones, defines as minimum security requirements the following:
- A child should not be able to press over, under or through the cover;
- The covers should resist the crossing of a 100kg adult;
ABER trying to find a solution for this problem and trying to use outer space correctly, created security covers for swimming pools.
ABER security covers for swimming pools are projected not only considering security and cleaning, but also the enjoyment of the swimming pool area 2 when it is not being used, bearing 200kg/m2.
