Geeste/Germany, October 2016 – RivieraPool, last year completely overhauled its whirlpool range so as to address the current trend of outdoor living. The new Strato models are available in two sizes, as built-in or as portable spas, for indoor and for outdoor use. New features such as the Lounge2Cover and weatherproof Resysta materials set new standards with respect to looks and functionality.
One of the whirlpool’s new features is a hard-top that becomes a daybed. The weather and winterproof whirlpool cover made of vinyl fabric insulates and protects the pool. It can be opened and closed effortlessly thanks to its lightweight construction. Yet, it is robust enough to carry two people and turns into a daybed for chilling out after a whirlpool treatment.
Weatherproof Resysta materials
RivieraPool also uses new materials for its spa cabinets: in particular for portable spas that are used outdoors, the manufacturer offers cabinets made from weatherproof Resysta panels. The material, which has long been used in architecture, shipbuilding, and furniture design, consists of special polymeric composites with rice husks. As the material is water resistant, it is predestined for use outdoors or in wet areas. Resysta panels are available in a wide range of colours with a stylish wooden look. This development is part of an integral design concept: "As Resysta is also frequently used in facade engineering as well as for pool or terrace decking, it is possible to harmonise the look of the whirlpool with the overall design," explains Marketing Manager Uwe Rengers. The technical spa equipment is hidden behind the removable panels and is easily accessible at all times. Optimal insulation of the equipment compartment is provided by high-tech polyurethane insulating boards. The waste heat of the pumps is recovered to help heat the bath water.
The new Strato spas are available in two sizes:
- "Strato 2.0" a compact variant, as a stationary model in 194 x 194 cm (76.4 x 76.4 in.) and as a portable spa in 211 x 211 cm (83.1 x 83.1 in.)
- "Strato 2.3" a more spacious variant, as a stationary model in 230 x 230 cm (90.6 x 90.6 in.) and as a portable spa in 250 x 250 cm (98.4 x 98.4 in.)
All whirlpools have four hydromassage seats. The jets are arranged according to an 8-step programme and are geared towards a 20 minute hydrotherapeutic whirl massage. The large Strato offers an additional massage spot with voluminous back massage. Soft generous neck pillows hold the head and keep it warm.
In addition to the Strato whirlpool range, RivieraPool offers the Wave line as skimmer pool for stationary installation or as a portable spa with an overflow channel. This makes Wave equally suitable for the requirements in private spa areas and for public use in hotels and fitness centres.
