Making Aquatic Environments Even More Extraordinary
NAPLES, FL—Wednesday, May 5th 2021 — Daldorado, LLC, a leading provider of main drains, sumps and perimeter grating, and Life Floor, the industry leading standard for aquatics safety surfacing today announced the exciting integration between the two companies’ products never before offered.
As families seek unique ‘go to’ and safe venues where parents can watch their children run and play, the new construction and renovation of waterparks continue to experience explosive growth. For aquatic designers and consultants the need to create bright and colorful interactive aquatic environments while also focusing on mitigating the risk of slip-and-fall injuries and tripping hazards can be a challenge. Therefore, it stands to reason decking and drainage systems are main areas of concern.
Life Floor knows this all too well. Life Floor is world-renowned for creating flooring systems that not only look and feel fun, but also feature incredible traction and slip-resistance. Brian Howell, Life Floor Director of Design Partnerships, states, “Life Floor is trusted by aquatics professionals all over the world. The subject of drainage has always been a topic of discussion, more specifically preventing small fingers and toes from getting caught in deck drains, or tripping on main drains. Plus, drains are extremely limited in choice of colors and materials, which means they can be visually distracting to our overall floor designs.”
Enter Daldorado. Daldorado introduced the DalLUX support grate system in the fall of 2020. Originally designed and manufactured for luxury pools, DalLUX support grates allow designers to maintain the aesthetics of a stone or tile deck all the way to the pool edge while also providing efficient and necessary drainage. Rob Lawson, CEO and Founder of Daldorado, met with aquatic designers who expressed their plan to use Life Floor in their projects, but needed a solution to their drainage issues and also to mitigate risk. He saw the opportunity to utilize the DalLUX system with Life Floor and the rest is history. Mr Lawson adds “Safety is paramount at Daldorado. To be able to fulfill the expressed need for a drainage system that meets International Building Code (IBC) standards and is NSF/ANSI/CAN 50 certified is something we are very proud to tout. We knew that our DalLUX support grate system would work in tandem with Life Floor and give designers everything they wanted in an end product, but we did not expect the reaction it would receive, not to mention the ‘Wow!’ factor.”
The integration of Life Floor safety surfacing with the Daldorado drainage system is already creating some chatter among designers, indicating that it will not only take the aquatics industry by storm but possibly vaulting waterparks into something more evolutionary. Add to this that both companies have a reputation for designing and manufacturing the highest quality products and offering unparalleled customer service, it can only be surmised that it will be a win-win for everyone.
Headquartered in Naples, FL, Daldorado is comprised of a team of water flow solutions specialists, leading the commercial aquatics industry by being the only American company to follow the strictest IBC and NSF requirements for main drains and rim flow systems. Daldorado maintains its reputation around the world as 'the Gold Standard' through its commitment to manufacturing the highest quality products with safety being its #1 priority.
