Ballarat Aquatic + Lifestyle Centre, VIC

Ceramic Solutions provided a full-line of aquatic solutions to the Ballarat Aquatic & Lifestyle Centre, from pool tiles to anti-slip concourse floors, custom made bulkhead, stainless steel handrails and starting blocks through to FINA approved lane ropes and water polo goals.

German-made, high-quality Secuton tiles from Ströher feature on the concourse surrounding the 50 metre pool. A colour scheme of mint, blue and white was selected to create an attractive floor pattern that compliments the buildings existing colour scheme and also ensures a safe, anti-slip solution (R12V4/B), ideal for high traffic areas.

For the City of Ballarat, the addition of a 50 metre indoor pool means the ability to host big swimming competitions all year round.  Based on this requirement Ceramic Solutions installed FINA approved Malmsten lane ropes and water polo goals complying with the International Olympic Committee and worldwide governing body for aquatic sports. The installation of a Stark Bulkhead (otherwise known as boom) within the 50 metre pool also allows the facility manager to transform the pool into two 25 metre competition pools or a single 33 metre pool to be used for water polo training and games. This not only satisfies user needs, but also increases the facilities bottom line.
