Bringing the seaside to Guisborough swimming pool

Altro Whiterock Digiclad, Altro Whiterock White

Guisborough Swim and Fitness Centre in Cleveland provides the local people with a place to keep active. The leisure centre offers a 25m swimming pool, group exercise classes and, thanks to an investment by Everyone Active, a new gym.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council needed to refurbish the swimming pool area and replace the old wall tiles. An easy to maintain surface was required for the busy centre. Steve Dodds of sjd Architects Ltd recommended Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding for the walls surrounding the pool.

RBA Moody Bros (Contractors) Ltd oversaw the project, with Commercial Coverings, a long standing Altro Whiterock Premier Installer, fitting the Altro Whiterock over the plywood frame. Altro Whiterock White was used for three of the walls.

For added interest, Altro Whiterock Digiclad was used for a feature wall for the installation. Images of beach huts were used with doors leading to the changing rooms and entrances to bring the seaside to the poolside. With six doors of varying sizes on the wall, Commercial Coverings completed a complex installation.

Altro Whiterock White is the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean. Its smooth white surface and classical purity make it a timeless choice for any interior.

Altro Whiterock Digiclad lets you have fun with your walls. From a calming coastal landscape in a hospital ward to a bold company logo in a reception area, the only limit is your imagination. Altro Whiterock Digiclad is created by reproducing a photographic image or vector art onto Altro Whiterock wall cladding, with consistent, photographic quality. Hard-coat technology provides scratch-resistant properties for added surface protection, making Altro Whiterock Digiclad ideal for areas where durability is important.
