OASE Below Ground Systems
At the start of the construction of the swimming pool, different types of below ground systems can be chosen to integrate the swimming pool cover.
On this page you will find the different solutions that can be offered by OASE automatic pool covers.
In each system a cover for the cover pit is provided.
Very important: The roll cover and technical parts of the below ground systems are safely separated from the swimmer!
System 1/A: in the cover pit behind the pool
The pool cover is safely stored in a separate pit behind the swimming pool.
With a stainless steel suspension system and a motor in the reel, no structural adaptations need to be undertaken to the construction of the swimming pool. On demand, a transit through the wall of the pool (with external motor) can be provided. In this case, a separate pit for the external motor must be built. The covering above the pool cover is achieved via a timber grid.
System 1/B: inside the pool
The stainless steel suspension provides fixation of the axle. The electronic cable for the motor in the reel is safely protected by a separate plate.
The advantage of this system is that no extra adjustments needs to be made in the wall of the swimming pool. This system is an excellent solution to provide pre-built pools with a roll-down shutter. When installed, the operational length of the pool will be shortened by approximately 80 cm.
System 1/B’: in a pit with a front panel
Subject to choice, this panel can be made of polyester or PVC.
The polyester panel can be delivered in every RAL colour. A panel in PVC can be covered with liner or with mosaic. Depending on the width of the swimming pool, a front panel can be delivered in one or several pieces and together with a roller mechanism in Stainless Steel.
System 1/C: in the bottom
On demand, Oase offer different solutions to install the electronic cable of the motor.
When using an external motor, the wall-shaft separates the axle from the water and makes the transit watertight. With a motor in the reel, the electronic cable is guided to the technical pit. Both systems are guaranteed water proof. On demand the cables from a motor in the reel can be extended.
System 1/D: in cover housing
The cover can be placed on the floor of the pool, halfway or just beneath the water surface. The casing of the pool cover is then to be used as standing, sitting or resting place for the swimmers.
The bench consists of a strong stainless steel suspension system. The upper and front panel can be made in polyester or PVC. A polyester bench can have any RAL colour, a PVC bench can be finished with liner or mosaic.
System 3/E: in the steps with a upper panel
In this way, no operational length of the pool is lost. The roll-down shutter is protected by a panel made of polyester or PVC and is been suspended by a stainless steel beam which guides the shutter from the pit behind the steps.
For better access to the shutter (e.g. maintenance) the panel can be delivered in several parts.
This system is very practical by combining with a bench because you have the possibility to sit in the pool, the possibility to get safely out of the pool and in the meantime, the cover is safely hidden in the cover pit.
System 1/E: in a recess in the wall
The cover is then safely put away and doesn’t take any room away from the swimmers. This system is the optimal solution for swimming pools with a high water level or for swimming pools with an overflow.
In front of the pit a stainless steel suspension system is placed. The suspension is then covered with polyester or PVC panels. Depending on the width of the pool, the front panel is delivered in one or more pieces and can easily be detached. The polyester panels can be delivered in every RAL colour. PVC panels can be finished with liner or with mosaic.
Above the front panel, an opening should be planned. Against the sloping part of the pit, gliders are placed to guide easily the roll-down shutter in and out of the cover pit.
System 1/F: underneath the bottom with a removable lid
The application of this system (like type 1/E) is frequently used for pools with an overflow or for a skimmer pool with a high water level.
All systems, built by OASE, are powered by an electric outside motor or by an in-tube motor. These motors are developed to let the shutter roll in and out the pit with an adjusted speed. This control of speed guarantees a smooth covering of the swimming pool.
Additionally, motors and wall-shaft are equipped with special ‘o’ rings to stand the high pressure of the water.
The pit is covered by a floor panel made from polyester or PVC. Floor panels in polyester can be delivered in every RAL colour, those in PVC can be finished with liner or mosaic. For ease of maintenance, the floor panel is usually delivered in different parts.
The floor panel is supported by a strong stainless steel construction. In the front, this structure is equipped with special gliders to guide the shutter in and out the pit. Thanks to the stainless steel structure, it is possible for people to stand on the floor panel. With this built-in system the operational length of the pool can be utilised.
On demand a spoiler slat can be installed to close the gap between the back wall and the stainless steel structure.
System 1/G: underneath the bottom with an automatic lid
The floor panel automatically opens and closes when the shutter is rolled outside or inside the pit. When using the swimming pool, the floor panel tightly closes the opening of the cover pit.
Like all other built-in systems the floor panel can be delivered in polyester or PVC. There is a choice in a wide range of colours or, depending on the tiling of the swimming pool, the floor panel can be finished with mosaic.
The top-panel functions perfectly as part of the pool floor because underneath the panel a complete Stainless Steel construction is placed.
System 1/H: in the middle with an automatic lid
The cover is installed underneath the bottom of the pool with an automatic lid. Different zones of the swimming pool can be covered by the use of one spindle. Motor and SS spindle are adjusted to the size and the depth of the swimming pool. The stainless steel construction of the below ground system is installed with a stainless steel, polyester or PVC panel.
