Woking Borough Council, in conjunction with leisure partner Freedom Leisure, was looking to carry out a series of phased upgrades at Pool in the Park in Woking’s town Centre. Pool in the Park is a popular leisure centre offering a range of facilities for the local community including a 25m competition pool, a lagoon wave pool and an extensive Learn to Swim programme.

Early in the design phase Dovetail BC turned to HDI for a state-of-the-art railing and gated system that would complement the building renovations but also handle the high amount of foot traffic from all age groups that use the swimming pool. Due to high humidity and chemicals such as chlorine the system had to withstand these additional elements.

Railing System: CIRCUM Round railing system
Location: Woking, UK
Architect: Dovetail Building Consultants
Contractor:  Mountjoy Ltd.


The Circum railing system was utilized with custom designed gates. All components were manufactured from 316 SS to guard against corrosion from high humidity and chlorine.
Contractor, Mountjoy Ltd, was integral to the whole operation allowing access and support.

A suggestion from the HDI technical team was accepted by the client which removed the existing cover plate from the base of the post to eliminate the chance of tripping and any possible injuries. HDI’s ability to adapt was key for this ever-changing project.

A sauna was also added last minute for which the HDI design team reacted immediately by reformatting the design and submitting new drawings. Intricate design work was carried out by HDI design engineers to allow for gates to be used with sloping floors whilst adhering to code, performance and British standards.

Custom magnetic latches, stoppers and bolt fixings were also fabricated in 316 SS to allow for easy opening and to secure gates open when in use. Woking Council substituted laminated panels for framed perforated panels in busy traffic areas which allowed for more safety without
obscuring the view.
