Below is a custom pool enclosure located in upstate NY. The 30' wide x 51' long x 10' high structure is engineered for local 50 psf ground snow loads and 90 mph wind loads. Some features include fixed 1" high performance low-e tempered insulated glass and aluminum faced foam-core panels, 25mm multi-wall polycarbonate roof glazing, 7'-3" x 12' wide folding glass walls, glass transom (located above the doors all around) with internal grids and an attached vestibule-equipment room to enter from the house.
The images below show before, during and after photos of a commercial pool enclosure roof placement for a Best Western hotel. The 25 year old enclosure manufactured by Atria (not PEI) shows 16mm bronze triplewall polycarbonate that had hail damage with mold and dirt between the layers of the panels. PEI removed the manual rope operated retracting roof panels that were no longer working and the fixed panels and installed "Next Generation" 16mm 5-wall opal polycarbonate with an X-pattern
Below are some attached walkways that will allow entrance into a freestanding (stand alone) swimming pool enclosure without going outside. A vestibule (entryway) creates an airlock chamber that will minimize heat loss and also eliminate excess moisture entering the attached structure.
PEI manufactures and installs custom glass conservatory style swimming pool enclosures as shown below. The enclosure features an extra tall 9' eave height allowing a glass transom above the 7' x 18' stackable sliding glass door. Other options include sliding windows, ceiling fans, internal window grids between the glass to simulate a divided lite look, self-cleaning glass,
Below are various shapes of swimming pool enclosures, such as: Gabled, Lean-to, and Conservatory style. Options include: 1" tempered insulated low-e (high performance) glass, sliding glass doors and windows, motorized retracting roof panels, fans, dehumidification, hanging stainless steel gas heaters and more.
Ceiling fans circulate stratified air ( hot air that is trapped near the ridge) of the pool enclosure or sunroom. Heaters will need to work harder to even the temperature resulting in extra fuel cost. These fans push air down without crating a draft (when ran in forward not reverse). Our fans are corrosion resistant - water rated.
Fans will also keep the air quality and humidity in check by moving the air around the swimming pool and reducing condensation, mold, mildew and disperse chloramines.
Below are some interior photos showing a conservatory (faceted roof) style pool enclosure with tile floor and attached walkway. More photos coming soon will show a separate swim spa, hot tub, and exercise equipment.
