WHAT麓S THE NEW TREND "INFINITY POOLS" IN OVERFLOWING POOLS?

Infinity Pools, endless horizon or lost horizon pools are a type of overflowing pool. This type of edging system requires to have open clear views to the horizon, otherwise it will be not possible to get the infinite effect. This effect happens when the water overflows over the pool wall without any surface after it, and by having the collection of water in a channel at a lower level than that of the edge.

In this way, an optical illusion is created making it look as if the pool has no physical limits, hence the water edge is aligned with the horizon. This effect can be made within one, two, three, or even four sides of pool, however, making it in one or two sides is the most common choice. The higher the pool above the horizon views the better effect. We can get amazing results in outdoor places facing cliffs, valleys, rooftops, terraces or cantilever pools.

Advantages of the infinity pool

It is a highly appreciated pool by those interested in aquatic environments as it combines the enjoyment of water, together with chilling moments in a beautiful landscape. That is why many hotels, campsites and holiday resorts choose this type of pool.

But this is not something exclusive for big buildings, as many private owners bet also on this trend. The unique effect provides differentiation and increases the value of the property.

Finishing pieces of ACEPOOL庐 by Gres Aragon, are produced by extrusion technology, with porcelain material offering a water absorption less than 0,5%, and high mechanical strength. All this features result in high standards for pools, making them resistant to all kind of efforts taking place in a pool and to chemicals products used in cleaning treatments, becoming so easy to clean and maintain. Moreover they are compatible for marine water, high salt content water or new salt treatment methods.

Safety against fallings is guaranteed (as long as the installation has been properly made) due to its non-slip feature B or C, tested according DIN 51097.

Regarding health safety, the rounded shapes used in intersections allow an easy cleaning and avoid pathogen proliferation. If a higher protection is required, BIOKLINKER庐 technology is the best choice, as it adds anti pathogen properties by using an additive before the firing of ceramic pieces. These anti pathogen properties are tested according the standard JIS Z-2801:2010 (ISO 22196), certifying a decrease of 99% of deposited pathogens in 24 hours.

Rounded shapes are also an enhanced safety guarantee during use, because they are designed to avoid injuries, taking special care in junctions, by the existing specific range of pieces, to solve it in a safe way.

Thanks to Klinkjet庐 technology, it is possible to join technical features mentioned above with the best and trendy design. It also enables high resolution reproducing materials, however they are not recommended to use in aquatic facilities because of a low resistance (wood, marbel, stone鈥).

By using Klinkjet庐 technology it is also possible to decorate all functional parts of the piece, with a high quality finishing pieces. There are even rigid and flexible grids for curves in ceramic with the same design as the rest of the pieces, in order to increase the quality of the pool finish by eliminating the typical strips in other materials that clash with the whole.
