One-piecePools APR 2010 SPN

55

The latest models are now available in a light grey and dark grey granite colour as well as the original white, sea blue, sand and papyrus. The Starline Group, the Dutch manufacturer of swimming pool products set up Starline Pools & Equipment UK Ltd last year to distribute the Starline Monoblock range of one-piece pools into the UK.

“Starline have a very successful European distribution model,” said Darren Brown, UK Sales Director, “which we will be following in the UK market and we are looking to work closely with our dealers to grow a strong partnership and leading market position over the coming years.”

On Riviera D line models the infinity edge system allows straight sides to be removed and the overflow effect of an infinity pool to be added

“The UK’s market in one-piece pools has in the past two years moved from being a fledgling side of the business to a more mature sector in its own right”

fibreglass, less pool maintenance chemicals are required. Importantly – the colour will never wear away

– no repainting, re-surfacing or re-tiling, ever! Multiforma has produced more than 30,000 fibreglass pools since 1972. For years now, FRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Polyester) has reigned supreme in the world of ocean- going yachts, pleasure craft, motor cars, aircraft and other modern applications requiring strength and durability. Its qualities of strength, reliability, unblemished finish and sheer good looks set the standard to which all seek to aspire.

The Riviera one-piece pool has always been the crème de la crème of one-piece pools and the addition of two new models this year will only further enhance that status – and Certikin’s strong position in the market. With

their sleek linear lines they are top end and shout luxury. These latest features easily make Riviera the equal of any concrete pool in style and quality and their ease and speed of installation make them technically far superior. With resonances of German architecture, the aptly named Linear features a full width step section allowing entry to the pool from one end whilst the ultra smart Kara features side entry steps.

Optional extras for this year include the addition of source pools and water channels connecting them to the main pool in the form of a waterfall.

To give the pool an upmarket appeal Riviera have introduced the infinity edge system allowing straight sides to be removed and the overflow effect of an infinity pool to be added in, giving the wow factor to any garden.

Starline Group Sales and Marketing Manager Martijn vd Zande commented: “Our strength in marketing our product to the end customer brings a fresh approach to the UK pool industry and we will be working closely with Darren in strengthening our dealer network.” The Starline Monoblock, is based on 35 years of experience and development and comes with a 10 year guarantee. It is made from high-quality Vinylester, reinforced with a fibreglass sandwich construction. This material provides a strong, stable and durable structure. It is available in the sky blue and bright white and is suitable for use as both an indoor and an outdoor pool. Every Monoblock is equipped with

a standing ledge, for swimming and playing, as well as a safety edge which supports the Roldeck pool cover. It also comes with pre-installed options, such as underwater lighting, skimmers, inlets, outlets, a jetstream and a Roldeck. Darren Brown says the one-piece pool market continues to buck the trend. “One-piece pools have the advantage of still being new and there are consumers who want a pool who are very much drawn to the one-piece concept.”

In terms of this market there are consumers who are interested in the high end product who are just tempted by the quality available where we position ourselves – the top end of the market. I think that’s where the market is staying strong. It represents high value and quality and for products which bring with them an outlay of £30,000 plus.” Starline has put together what Darren calls a “nice spread of dealers” to handle sales of the Monoblock.

“We are still very interested in talking to
