#UHNW Luxury Properties and the Guncast Moving Floor Swimming Pool

One of the hottest trends that has erupted globally in ultra-high-net-worth luxury properties, is the moving floor swimming pool, and rightly so. Here’s how Guncast transforms ordinary pool areas into extraordinary dual-purpose spaces with these hidden pools.

From luxury London properties to ultra-high-net-worth real estate in California, 5 star hotels to exclusive developments across the world, architects and owners are choosing to incorporate a swimming pool into their floor plan, but often don’t want to lose any rooms or space.

Moving floor swimming pools overcome this problem and can be installed inside a property, in a basement or outside as part of a patio or garden area. At the touch of a button the pool floor can be raised so that it’s level with the surround, transforming an area for entertainment or exercise with no obvious signs of what is below.

However, it is important to fully understand what lies beneath to ensure the long term success of the pool installation.

Mechanics of a Guncast Moving Floor Swimming Pool

Some moving floor pools feature mechanics that rely on buoyancy tanks, cables, scissors, or hydraulics, but they are often associated with performance, maintenance, and pool design limitations.

Guncast moving floors are different. Beneath the pool floor is the powerful mechanical Spiralift® technology, originally designed to lift an entire orchestra. A series of extremely compact lifts perform the transformation silently every time.

This proven technology is highly reliable and used in the aerospace and automotive industries, with more than 45,000 units installed. Guncast moving floor swimming pools adjust to any depth and meet all commercial standards for load requirements. Features such as self-depositing steps are also possible, along with infinity edges, counter-current units and much more.
