Pool Enclosures: Everything You Need to Know

Pool enclosures serve as protective barriers around your swimming pool, ensuring privacy, safety, and all-weather functionality.

As you know, we've passed the summer months and are now heading into the colder weather. However, this is no obstacle with Libart's AquaSun systems. Enjoy your indoor pool even in chilly weather with this system, which can easily close in cold conditions.

What is Pool Enclosures

Pool enclosures are structures that cover the top and sides of a pool area, acting as a shield against intruders, weather, and debris. They are typically constructed with large glass or polycarbonate side panels, supported by sturdy metal or wooden beams, often made from high-grade aluminum alloy for durability.

These enclosures not only provide privacy but also create all-weather pool spaces, making them usable year-round.

Types of Swimming Pool Enclosures

Choosing the right pool enclosure can be challenging due to various designs and options. Let's explore the different types:

  • Full Retractable Pool Enclosures: These versatile enclosures can be fully retracted, providing unobstructed pool access. Libart offers custom-made options tailored to your project's needs.
  • Low-Profile Enclosures: These enclosures enhance your pool's appearance without obstructing the view. They sit next to the pool's edge, acting as stylish covers that can be easily retracted.
  • Medium High Enclosures: Known for their durability and elegant design, these enclosures have a slightly elevated structure. They create a pleasing, rounded top and allow swimming within the enclosure.
  • High Enclosures: These luxurious enclosures transform outdoor pools into indoor spaces, offering versatility but often at a higher cost. They can be made from various materials, including wood, glass, metal, or polycarbonate.

The Advantages of Pool Enclosures

Easier Maintenance: Pool enclosures keep debris out, reducing the need for extensive pool cleaning.

Less Water Evaporation: During hot months, evaporation can lower pool water levels; enclosures help reduce this.

Enhanced Security: They keep out animals, insects, and prevent accidents, ensuring safety.

Extended Living Space: Patio screen pool enclosures extend your home's living area, perfect for outdoor kitchens and lounges.

Extended Pool Season: With the right enclosure, you can swim year-round, enjoying a warmer pool during colder seasons.

  • Traditional Elegance: Pool enclosures with ornate detailing and color-matching options can seamlessly blend with classic and traditional architectural designs. They add a touch of timeless elegance to the pool area.
  • Energy Efficiency: Pool enclosures designed with energy-efficient materials and features can align with sustainable architecture principles. These enclosures can help regulate temperatures, reduce energy consumption, and contribute to eco-friendly designs.
  • Multi-Functional Spaces: Architects can design pool enclosures that transform into multi-functional spaces. These enclosures can serve as extensions of living areas, providing a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • Customization: The versatility of pool enclosures allows for extensive customization. Architects can work closely with clients to design bespoke enclosures that match their architectural preferences, including material choices, colors, and structural elements.
  • Landscape Integration: By carefully considering the surrounding landscape, pool enclosures can become integral parts of the outdoor environment. They can be designed to frame scenic views or create private, tranquil pool areas.
  • Year-Round Use: Architects can emphasize the importance of year-round pool enjoyment. Enclosures that easily retract or open, like Libart's options, can be highlighted for their ability to adapt to changing weather conditions.

Incorporating pool enclosures into architectural designs requires collaboration between architects, pool enclosure specialists, and clients. It's about creating harmonious spaces that not only protect but also enhance the overall architectural appeal.
