As the heat of summer surrounds you, you may find it a good idea to venture out to the community swimming pool. As you arrive, you notice that many of your neighbors had the same thought. There are kids running and doing cannon balls into the swimming pool. As they splash water high into the air, it falls outside of the pool onto the concrete walkway. Beach towel in hand, you place one rubber-sandal clad foot onto the walkway and end up falling hard onto the concrete.
Because there was no type of perforated metal draining vent, water was able to pool up, creating a slippery, dangerous area. Beyond your control, a day of relaxed, summer fun turned into a painful afternoon at the hospital. However, Hendrick Manufacturing, has developed several perforated metal products that can ensure everyone’s safety at the community swimming pool.
Nearly a foot from the edge of the pool, a steel, wedge-tread grate lines the entire rectangular area of the pool. Situated close enough to the pool to catch water from any swimmers, it can also provide traction to those walking near the edge. It will help prevent any type of fall close to the pool.
As swimmers enter and exit the swimming pool, custom designed wedge tread metal steps have been created out of perforated metal products to add traction. The wedge tread allows easy access and adequate, safe tread into the swimming pool. Hendrick can work with their customer to provide exact sizes, allowing their product to fit the customer, rather than the customer to fit the product.
Several feet from the pool at the entrance and exit area, similar perforated steel grates have been designed. As visitors come and go, they may drip water, created a hazard. However, water can quickly drain through the grates, eliminating any type of hazard.
Near the entrance to the changing rooms and restrooms, similar custom profile grate bars have been installed. As visitors enter to change from their wet swimming suits, they can rest assured that the grate bars provide enough traction under their flip flops.
From the steps to the entrance way, Hendrick Architectural Products can work with the customer to custom create quality products that will ensure safety and the needs of swimming pool guests are met. By working closely to fit the customer’s specifications, Hendrick can provide a custom product that will fit the size, shape, and design of the customer’s needs.
