Maple have installed advanced roller blinds at a Bolton leisure centre that could quite literally be the difference between life and death.

The sun’s glare is a major problem in swimming pools as it prevents people (including lifeguards) seeing to the bottom, where swimmers could be in difficulty.

Blinds were incorporated between the panes of the double-glazed façade when the centre was first built. However, these failed and Maple were asked to recommend a solution.

We installed roller blinds with a ‘zip’ system that retains the blackout blinds within vertical channels to keep them flush with the windows. The system stops the blinds from moving in airflow or being lifted by hand, and prevents shafts of dazzling sunlight from entering the pool area.

The blinds can still be opened at certain times of the day, or closed when privacy is required. But all controls are kept out of reach ― staff can only raise and lower the 23 blinds with a long, detachable crank. 

Bolton One Health, Leisure and Research Centre was built in partnership with Bolton Council, NHS Bolton and the University of Bolton to promote the health and wellbeing of Bolton people.
