How to Keep Your Poolside Doors, Frames, and Partitions Rust-Free

Suppose you have a pool area in your commercial building. Or you have a large outdoor pool or aquatic facility. In that case, you know how important it is to have doors and frames that can withstand constant exposure to moisture and harsh chemicals that can damage traditional materials (more on that below). Special-Lite Fiberglass Doors and Frames are made with the highest quality materials. They are engineered to handle the harsh and humid conditions found around pools.

We’ve covered ice arenas; let’s look at pools and aquatic facilities!

Pool and Aquatic Facility Challenges

Doors, frames, and partitions in aquatic or pool facilities face a variety of challenges due to this unique environment. Below, we examine five of the biggest challenges.

1. Water resistance: Pools generate a lot of moisture, leading to water damage and mold growth on surfaces not designed for this environment.

2. Corrosion: A wet and often humid environment can lead to the corrosion of doors, frames, and bathroom partitions.

3. Cleaning & maintenance: Your facility requires regular chemical treatment, cleaning, and maintenance to ensure proper function and hygiene. Surfaces need to allow for easy cleaning and sanitizing.

4. Security & access control: Pool facilities require strict access control to prevent unauthorized access and ensure safety. Think about the doors you have in place right now. Do staff-only areas and equipment rooms provide adequate security to prevent unauthorized access?

5. Safety: Damaged or hard-to-operate doors pose a safety risk to patrons and employees, especially in emergencies.
