Swim wall

We have installed a swim wall in our 50m pool.

What is a swim wall?

A swim wall is an inflatable structure that is permanently fixed to the bottom of the 50m pool. By filling the wall with air, it moves into a vertical position forming a wall that is designed to fit around lane ropes, and splits the pool in half.  It only takes a couple of minutes to change the configuration.

This means that we will have the ability to configure the 50m pool in a number of ways:
  • The whole pool can be split in half, providing the equivalent of two 25 metre pools
  • The swim wall can be inflated to just half of the pool so that four lanes can remain as 50 metres, and four can be set as 25m lanes
  • At many times, the pool wall will be deflated and the pool will remain with all lanes as 50 metres.
 

Benefits

The benefits will be most felt during the summer months, when the swim wall can allow us to accommodate recreation swimmers, inflatables and lap lane swimmers. It will also allow us to have the indoor 25 metre set up more often in the more desirable eight lane configuration which means lane ropes align with the pool markings.

Timetable

When the swim wall is operating in our outdoor pool there may not be any 50 metre lanes available for lap swimming. There will be a minimum of 4 x 25m lanes still available for lap swimming.
