Crittall Pool House

Having recently purchased a set of replacement Crittall French doors from us, our client knew that he wanted to use Crittall steel screens in the development of his new pool house.

With a passion for swimming the homeowner had seen a current pool in action whilst on an overnight stay at a hotel and decided he wanted to install one at home.

Looking to design a building that was complimentary to the original home and look as though it was built within the same period, the pool house was designed using traditional materials and methods such as the brick walls, timber and slate roof and oak framed steel doors all of which where common building materials when the original house was built.

Due to the location of the building there where many issues running water when the excavations where dug which led to a very technical foundation and drainage system which are all hidden underground.

Due to the building being used as a pool house one of the major considerations throughout the build was to ensure the building materials used would stand up to the moisture associated with a heated pool. The Crittall steel screens are both hot-dip galvanized to BS EN 1461 to ensure that the finished products are completely protected against corrosion and polyester powder coating in strict accordance with BS EN 13438 to a thickness of at least 60 microns giving a finish that will last a lifetime and stand up to the harshest of conditions.

To complete the build, we supplied and installed a matching pair of Crittall steel French doors and a large apex steel screen with central doors. Aged brass handles really adds to the aged look of this building and compliment the metal fixtures used throughout the building.

The finished building is absolutely stunning and sits perfectly within the grounds of this home, the careful selected materials balance perfectly with the original estate. The end result is a timeless design that will stand the test of time and create endless exercise opportunities for the family to enjoy.
