SETAUKET EAST, NY, September 28, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Seeking to maximize the sustainability of the new Beagle Middle School swimming pool which opened in time for the 2021-2022 school year, the Large cornice The Department of Public Schools has ordered the construction of cold and hot water swimming pools treated with PENETRON ADMIX SB, a waterproofing admixture for crystalline concrete.
Located along that of Michigan the longest river, Large cornice is a picturesque town of about 8,000 inhabitants. Named after the Grand River and the 500-million-year-old sandstone ledges that rise to 40 feet (12 meters) above the river, the town is a popular destination for recreational climbers and tourists.
Previously a primary school in Large cornice, Beagle School has been redesigned and modernized as a new college for grades 6-8, with over 480 additions to the new school. These additions included a two-story, 14-classroom wing that was added alongside existing classrooms, and two specialized music classrooms for the orchestra and choir as a small wing. A new administrative office has also been added near the new secure main entrance. The kitchen, service area and cafeteria were redesigned and the gymnasium was expanded to accommodate a larger physical program and community recreational activities.
“The Grand Ledge public school system is known for the quality of its sports and academic facilities,” says Christophe Chen, director of the Penetron group. “The highlight of the new Beagle Middle School is the pool – for school competitions and access to the community.”
Serving school teams and public swimmers
The new pool includes both a cold water competition pool and a hot water community pool. The eight-lane competition pool will host swimming competitions and state tournaments.
Penetron worked with High Grade Materials, the supplier of ready-to-use products, on an optimal concrete waterproofing solution that would meet specified compressive strengths. Although a competitive concrete waterproofing additive was specified, PENETRON ADMIX SB, an integral crystalline waterproofing admixture for concrete in soluble bags, was chosen as the waterproofing solution for the concrete pool structures of the Beagle Middle. School including all concrete pool walls and floor tiles. tanks, the swimming pool buffer tank and the air distribution tunnels under the swimming pools of the new school swimming pool.
Moisture generates insoluble crystalline formation
Added to concrete during dosing, PENETRON ADMIX SB simplifies the dosing and dosing process. The crystalline waterproofing admixture initiates a moisture activated catalytic reaction to generate insoluble crystalline formation through pores and capillary pathways normally present in concrete. This formation permanently seals microcracks, pores and capillaries against the penetration of water or liquids from any direction, greatly reducing the permeability of generally porous concrete.
“As an integral waterproofing solution, PENETRON ADMIX offers low permeability, low shrinkage and self-healing properties, a very effective combination for exposed concrete structures at Beagle Middle School,” concludes Christophe Chen.
