Golden Wave 2017: Award in the Swimming Pool category goes to STEULER-KCH


On the 30th of March 2017, Germany's leading pool and wellness magazine, SCHWIMMBAD + SAUNA (Fachschriften-Verlag, Fellbach) presented its "Golden Wave" Innovation Award for the seventh time.

The magazine awards the "Golden Wave" every two years to recognise outstanding products, technologies and processes and their manufacturers in a total of eight categories. The award ceremony was held this year in the historic music hall in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart.

The Golden Wave in the "Swimming Pools" category went to Meyer Coatings. Steuler KCH and Riviera Pool received commendations.

STEULER-KCH was represented in a highly competitive field by its innovative lining system, BEKAPOOL.

The prefabricated concrete elements make it possible to construct pools in a cost-effective manner thanks to their integrated thermoplastic liner. A highly durable and waterproof plastic lining material is permanently mechanically attached directly to the tried-and-tested structural building material, concrete. The use of materials that have proven themselves in the acid-resistance engineering industry, the high degree of prefabrication of the system elements and predictable on-site installation result in savings of up to 25% compared to conventional construction techniques. But that's not all: ongoing maintenance costs are significantly lower too, especially in the case of open-air swimming pools.

The commendation at the Golden Wave 2017 is the second award that BEKAPOOL has received within just a few months of its launch. It was only in September 2016 that the system was distinguished with the Innovation Award at the Interbad trade show.
