Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (EPP) is developing and manufacturing the pool deck grating for the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh, which will host the diving events for the Glasgow 2014 Royal Commonwealth Games.

The company also designed, manufactured and supplied the grating and channel rail system for the three major pools and circular plunge pool at the London 2012 Olympic Park Aquatics Centre.

Quadrant EPP’s grating provides the cover for the front end of the filtration system and is designed to substantially increase the return rate of water in all three major competition swimming pools.

Unlike the new build completed for the 2012 Summer Olympics, the Royal Commonwealth Pool facilities have been refurbished, presenting a different set of challenges for the Quadrant UK team to overcome. The team developed a custom multi-flow channel and rail grating to maximise each pool’s return rate of water.

Key benefits of product application

  • The parts of are made from polyethylene (PE), which provides strength, offers good chemical and corrosion resistance and is hygienic and easy to clean.
  • Quadrant customised the parts according to the customer’s requirements and ensured installation and removal were straightforward.
  • According to Stefan Willing, commercial director of Quadrant EPP Europe, the multi-flow grating has an extremely low moisture absorption rate and as a result will not swell or delaminate.
