Suction niches


Safe bathing fun

Suction points in swimming pools are always a potential and much underestimated source of risk. Suction forces generated by recirculation and swimming pool attraction pumps can, depending on the layout and interconnection, produce an extremely powerful suction effect that can draw in hair and articles of clothing. As the market leader for the production of attractions for public swimming pools, Schmalenberger has addressed this problem intensively and developed a patented suction niche - called secur - with a grid that embodies four decisive advantages:

  1. A new grid structure prevents suctioning of hair or pieces of clothing
  2. Suction volume is up to 3 times higher than conventional perforated plate structures
  3. Cost savings of up to 70% thanks to reduction of suction point size
  4. Safety feautures are inspected and certified by LGA
  5. Stainless steel execution
  6. Available in following sizes:
    310 x 310 mm; 400 x 400 mm; 490 x 490 mm
  7. Different suction point sizes for every type of installation
    e.g. installation depth, wall or floor installation
The new suction niche design is a resolute concept complying in every respect with DIN EN 13451. Secur gives you peace of mind when it comes to safe operation of your swimming pool.
