Initially designed to do lengths comfortably, the swim lane is a pool that appeals to many sportsmen and women and swimming enthusiasts. This craze is now even appealing to swimming pool enthusiasts who are only looking for relaxation.
What is a swim lane?
A swim lane is a long swimming pool that is rectangular in shape and at least 10 m long. These dimensions allow enough space to swim comfortably as one would in an Olympic-sized pool. To install a pool that is suitable for the outdoor space of your home, you can also choose a custom-made pool. The length varies between 10 and 15 m and can even be as long as 20 m. As for the width, you have the possibility to create a 3 m wide corridor pool.
The different types of corridor pools
The swim lanes can be designed in different materials:
Concrete: For a masonry pool, professionals offer custom-made models in reinforced, poured or sprayed concrete.
The shell: The polyester shell allows more configurations, in addition to being more affordable.
The kit: Easier to install, the corridor pool kit is a collection of previously manufactured parts.
Then, you can choose your finishing materials according to aesthetic or functional criteria: waxed concrete, wood, marble, etc. Here the professional can guide you towards the choice that best suits your needs and your budget.
