You can nowchoose from a variety of baths.Finnish Olympic sports participants first introduced the saunato Germany during the Olympic Games in 1936, when theywere accustomed to taking a sauna throughout the games. Thesauna only began to become widespread in Germany after the2nd World War.At that time, cabins designed according to specified dimensionsand set against room walls were the norm. Only a type ofRögerwood, namely spruce from native forests were used; the wooden door only had a smallwindow and the equipment was incredibly spartan. The electric heating furnaces had a simple design. Othertypes of heating such an oil and gas as well as oven lining were only introduced at a later stage. However, therange of sauna cabins developed at a dramatic pace during the 1980’s. The warm, moist bath with greater cabinhumidity and correspondingly lower temperatures now appeared alongside the traditional, so-called Finnishsauna with high temperatures and lower humidity. Other equipment variants appeared over the years: Lightpatterns, starry sky, an aerator, sounds and smells. Above all, LED technology, which conjures up a fantastic playof colour in the cabin, has found its way into the sauna in recent years. A completely new bathing form alsoentered the market: the infra-red cabin. Although its façade is similar to that of the sauna, it has an infra-redlamp or a heating foil via a completely different heating system. In the meantime, both bathing forms, namelythe sauna and the infra-red version, can be often found in the cabin. Customers can adjust the respective bathingforms using a controller.Continued on page 8The heating pump solutionfor family pools An eternal ray of sunshineWe all know that the family pool represents arecreational area with numerous benefits: an opportunityfor children to have fun in the water,rest and relaxation, well-being for the whole family,stylish design and a great communal area,to name but a few.While water quality is a naturally important prerequisitefor a pool to fulfil all of its promises, poolowners believe heating isthe top priority if it is tobe used comfortably andfor a long period of time.Where are we today withcomfortable heating solutionsfor family pools?Heating a pool firstlymeans trying to avoidheat loss.

The heating pump solution for family poolsAn eternal ray of sunshineContinued from page 1NEWSPolytropicWe all know that the family pool represents arecreational area with numerous benefits: anopportunity for children to have fun in the water,rest and relaxation, well-being for the wholefamily, stylish design and a great communal area,to name but a few.While water quality is a naturally important prerequisitefor a pool to fulfil all of its promises, poolowners believe heating is the top priority if it isto be used comfortably and for a long period oftime.Where are we today with comfortable heating solutionsfor family pools?Heating a pool firstly means trying to avoid heatloss. This depends on the season and on the amount of sunshine present.An unheated open-air pool is only usable from between three to nine weeks of the year.As with heating a house, heating a pool obviously requires energy consumption. The sharp increase inthe costs of fossil fuels and the need for developing new sources of energy that have little or no impacton the environment, has changed the game.The heating pump has therefore become the sensible choice,as proven by its spectacular rise in the domestic heatingmarket (with 53,500 geothermal heating air/water pumpssold in 2006, according to the French Heating Pump Association,AFPAC).The Heating Pump is the most widely used solution in theEuropean family pool market and, with the outcome currentlyexpected for fossil fuels, it is sure to be the technologyof the future.French and European builders have been using this productfor thirty years to make a difference in terms of efficiency,energy savings and performance. The product is the culminationof their significant input into research and developmentClimexel by Procopiof new technologies (cryogenic fluids and efficient air condensers,intelligent machinery and sensitive noise level reduction, etc.)A Heating Pump’s performance is measured by its coefficient of performance or COP, which is the ratiobetween power released and power used. ItThe Heating Pump, with the outcome currentlyexpected for fossil fuels, it is sure to be thetechnology of the future.is fundamentally about the release capacityof the PAC. The higher the COP, the moreefficient the PAC. PLEASE NOTE that the COPvaries according to external conditions (airtemperature, humidity). If you compare twoCOP from two different PAC, be sure to check that the conditions used are identical.Ditto noise levels: the possible noise disturbance of this type of heating system is questionable. It ishard to compete in a world where everyone seems to be offering THE quietest product, but withoutalways being able to prove it, nor from which distance the noise level is measured at.The Heating Pump solution is essentially a technical solution that therefore requires skill, reliabilityand service. It is strongly recommended that installation is carried out and followed up by a professional,using the SAV Network for after-sales service, in order to respond efficiently to the requirementsand expectations of the consumer. These three criteria are vital for ensuring customer satisfaction.The key to future success lies with this striking solution that is the special pool heating pump – aneternal ray of sunshine.Jean-Philippe GUILMEAUPSA Zodiac Key Account ManagerZodiacVésuvio by AqualuxSumHeat byHaywardTout Pour l’Eau PRAT spreads itsbusiness at international levelIn fact, its Manager, PhilippePerrot, has confirmed that nowhe wants to exploit the potentialof swimming pool structures’kit completely.

Combined cabinsare very much in vogueContinued from page 1The sauna cabin has changed dramatically over past decades, both in terms of cabin designand capabilities. You can now choose from a variety of baths.Finnish Olympic sports participants first introducedthe sauna to Germany during the Olympic Games in1936, when they were accustomed to taking a saunathroughout the games. The sauna only began to becomewidespread in Germany after the 2nd WorldWar.At that time, cabins designed according to specifieddimensions and set against room walls were thenorm. Only a type of wood, namely spruce from nativeforests were used; the wooden door only hada small window and the equipment was incrediblyspartan. The electric heating furnaces had a simpledesign. Other types of heating such an oil and gas aswell as oven lining were only introduced at a laterstage. However, the range of sauna cabins developedat a dramatic pace during the 1980’s. The warm,moist bath with greater cabin humidity and correspondinglylower temperatures now appeared alongsidethe traditional, so-called Finnish sauna with hightemperatures and lower humidity. Other equipmentvariants appeared over the years: Light patterns,starry sky, an aerator, sounds and smells. Above all,LED technology, which conjures up a fantastic play ofcolour in the cabin, has found its way into the saunain recent years. A completely new bathing form alsoentered the market: the infra-red cabin. Although itsfaçade is similar to that ofthe sauna, it has an infraredlamp or a heating foilvia a completely differentheating system. In themeantime, both bathingforms, namely the saunaand the infra-red version, can be often found in thecabin. Customers can adjust the respective bathingforms using a controller.However, customers are also spoilt for choicewhen it comes to choosing a type of wood. Scandinavianspruce, hemlock, Douglas fir, poplar, redcedar, Kelo, alder and beech are the types of woodon offer. Furthermore, socalledthermo wood, i.e.heat-processed wood, isbecoming increasinglyfashionable. The cabinhas a primarily frameworkdesign with prefabricatedinsulated elements. Wallsand cover can also becreated using solid woodblocks. The doors havechanged as well: Today,transparent glass doorshave replaced the smallwindow.In line with contemporarytrends, the modern saunacabin adapts to the designof the room. Wood isn’tthe only element used:KlafsIn line with contemporary trends,the modern sauna cabin adaptsto the design of the room.RögerDifferent materials such as stainless steel, naturalstone and glass are combined with each other justlike different colours, though dark, noble coloursseem to be the current fashion.Heaters are also undergoing a change. Apartfrom the traditional electric sauna ovens made ofstainless steel and cast stainless steel, heating systembelow seats and behind walls are becomingincreasingly popular.Other variants includesheating systems drivenby gas and oil. On theother hand, the woodensauna ovens found inFinland have not taken afoothold in Germany.Sauna control units are becoming increasingly relevant,given the greater range of bathing formsand equipment. Apart from the traditional controlunit which only accesses the oven and the light,digital multi-functional control units which allowdifferent bathing forms such as Finnish sauna, softsteam bath, herbal bath or infra-red (if it exists)to be easily accessed, are being offered on an increasingbasis. In addition, other features such asautomatic infusion can be found in industrial settings.Today, the modern multi-functional saunacabin offers a variety of bathing forms and opportunitiesfor relaxation. The steam bath also reflectsthe same trend. The cabins which are lined withtiles or natural stone still offer a series of othersteam bath varieties: e.g. the brine bath and thehamam. Another variant is the thermal radiationbath based on the Roman Baths which emits a dryheat into the cabin just like a tiled stove.Herbert NonnenmacherHerbert Nonnenmacher is the CEO of RögerGmbH, Schwäbisch-Hall, www.roeger-sauna.deTylöDiaryHere is Eurospapoolnews’ list of all the key pool and spa events you should have in your diaries for 2010ATLANTIC CITY POOL & SPASHOW – USAFrom 26/01/2010 to 28/01/2010ATLANTIC CITY (New Jersey)email@example.comAQUA-THERM MOSCOW 2010RussiaFrom 02/02/2010 to 05/02/2010Moscowwww.aquatherm-moscow.ruMADE EXPO - ItalyFrom 03/02/2010 to 06/02/2010MILAN RHOinfo@madeexpo.itwww.madeexpo.itSPATEX - United KingdomFrom 06/02/2010 to 08/02/2010BRIGHTONinfo@spatex.co.ukwww.spatex.co.ukINTERNATIONAL POOL SALONRussiaFrom 09/02/2010 to 11/02/2010MOSCOWprmos@msi-fairs.ruwww.msi-fairs.ruEGYPT POOL - AQUATHERM 2010From 13/02/2010 to 15/02/2010CAIROinfo@aquathermeg.comwww.aquathermeg.com / www.egyptpool.comFORUMPISCINE - ItalyFrom 25/02/2010 to 27/02/2010BOLOGNAinfo@ilcampo.itwww.ilcampo.it / www.forumpiscine.itCLIMATHERM 2010 - GreeceFrom 03/03/2010 to 07/03/2010East Airport Hellinkoninfo@climatherm.grPOOL 2010 - TurkeyFrom 04/03/2010 to 07/03/2010Istanbulinterteks@interteks.comwww.interteks.comCONSTRUMA 2010 - HungaryFrom 14/04/2010 to 18/04/2010BUDAPESTconstruma@hungexpo.huwww.construma.huAQUA-THERM KIEV 2010 - UkrainFrom 12/05/2010 to 15/05/2010KIEVwww.aquatherm-kiev.comSPLASH!
