Changing areas for swimming pools have special requirements to the material and equipment for the changing rooms, toilet partitions, furniture and wall coverings. High humidity combined with relatively high temperatures; the action of disinfectants and high mechanical loads strain the constructions. Of course, the swimming pool facilities must also be easy to clean and long lasting as well as inexpensive - to complete a wish list of the client.
No coincidence that Schäfer Trennwandsystem was awarded the contract for the complete equipment of the changing area to the swimming pool in Kassel. In the cataloge of the Horhausener specialist for toilet partitions and locker rooms are all high quality items that are needed for the construction of a swimming pool-partition system. Experience with such projects and its requirements is of course also available: The Kassel Auebad is not the first pool, which was constructed by the Schäfer team.
The facilities of the swimming pool was - mainly kept in a bright green - to fit the construction in the "green lung" of Kassel. We installed changing cubicles of type EF-3 with a central foot under the seat to facilitate the cleaners to clean the floor. Of course not only functionality is the only attribute of a changing room for swimming pools. It is also the optics to get a "feel-good" atmosphere in the locker area. Here the change cubicle system scores with an attractive, pale green shiny design.
Correspondingly, the lockers GVKF13 on the opposite side in the locker area are decorated in different shades of colour. Lockers and compartments are made of the type GVKF. For the wall panels and around the automatic pay individual solutions were required; even more in the construction of the benches with cushions made of high quality wood.
For the series of hair drying places of the swimming pool, the designers found a very special solution: Nearly floating, built only on a few steel feet. This pool facility is not only elegant but also efficient. For cleaning no unsightly and hygienic problem like"sleazy corners" are remaining - and the design also looks very elegant. For this special development, a prototype was built and tested at the factory first before the solution was used in Kassel .
The Auebad in Kassel is an ideal reference project for Schäfer Trennwandsysteme: Designing the changing area at the swimming pool, the team was able to show that they not only do work "off the shelf". Schäfer was the ideal partner because of the intelligent customized solutions and in-house developments.
