DekBoard, the specialist manufacturer of sustainable PVC decking for holiday homes, has now added hot tubs to its already extensive product range.
This new addition enables DekBoard to offer its customers a greater depth of products – everything they need to create a luxurious outside space, from all decking options to hot tubs.
Mark Cartwright, Commercial Director at DekBoard, explains why DekBoard decided to include hot tubs in its offering:
“Here at DekBoard we work hard to support our customers by guaranteeing the highest quality and most up to date product range. One way of successfully achieving this is by monitoring market trends and pre-empting the needs of our customers, to ensure our offering reflects these. The addition of hot tubs to our range is one such example.
“The popularity of hot tubs has risen exponentially over the past few years, with many holiday makers choosing park-based accommodation with this feature. As a result many park owners and their residents are upgrading their holiday homes to take advantage of this increased interest. However, it is important to remember that hot tubs require regular maintenance and must adhere to the correct compliances to keep them safe and enjoyable.”
Correct compliance for peace of mind
In 2017, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) published its HSG282 guidance on the control of legionella and other infectious agents in spa-pool systems. This guidance has since been updated and now contains specific advice on domestic-type hot tubs used as part of a business activity, for example in holiday-park rentals. This helps holiday park owners and their residents meet the necessary requirements when it comes to the installation and maintenance of hot tubs.
“If you are a caravan or holiday home park owner who has rental accommodation with hot tubs, you need to ensure these are HSG282 compliant,” continues Mark. “Our goal is to provide park owners with the ultimate peace of mind. This is why our hot tubs have been carefully designed to not only provide style, comfort and relaxation to users, but also to comply with the Health and Safety Executive’s legislation.”
“It is worth bearing in mind that non-rental accommodation with hot tubs, is not subject to the same compliance rules. However, as a park owner, it is always pertinent to have a conversation with the owner to determine if the hot tub is being correctly maintained to ensure site safety”.
Safety and style – the perfect combination
As part of the HSG282 compliance features, DekBoard hot tubs are self-dosing, removing the reliance on the doser remaining in the tub, have tamper proof controls for peace of mind, and feature a fast water release, reducing the time it takes to change the water. Overall, DekBoard hots tubs provide maximum impact with minimum effort, giving park owners a truly distinctive unique selling point.
PVC perfection – creating the perfect outdoor space
By adding hot tubs to its range, DekBoard can now offer holiday park owners everything they need to create the perfect outdoor space for their residents. Its PVC decking beautifully emulates real wood but requires no treatments to protect it from the elements. It is also extremely durable, very easy to maintain, and is slip resistant, which when installed around a hot tub makes for a safe and comfortable underfoot experience.
Alongside its decking, the DekBoard range also features coordinating balustrades, skirting, privacy panels, steps, ramps, and gates, and practical yet tasteful lighting solutions. Combined, the DekBoard range enables park owners to produce beautifully styled – and safe – holiday homes that will attract holiday makers year after year.
Understanding the industry
“We have supplied the holiday park market for many years and understand the needs and wants of their owners. When it comes to PVC decking, we know price is one of the most important considerations, together with style and quality of product. We believe our decking and accessories range combines all of these essential qualities and we plan to continue this same philosophy and commitment through to our new hot tub range,” concludes Mark.
