Interesting application examples for swimming pool builders

Swimming pool cover

Despite high installation costs, the solution with ball bearings and shrink tubing never achieved a proper sealing. The problem could be solved thanks to igubal® flange bearings.

Flexible roofing

With this system, for example, terraces can be roofed flexibly. The roof is even waterproof in the closed state.


No matter how much the sun shines: these sunshades ensure pleasant light conditions within the building.
