Movable floors

A versatile solution for your medical or therapy pool

In order to achieve optimal results with hydrotherapy, variation in depth is the key factor for success. That is why a movable pool floor is the perfect addition to any medical or therapy pool.

A movable floor offers a versatile solution to make a swimming pool accessible to every target group. Our mechanism makes it possible to infinitely adjust the pool to any desired water depth. As a result, children can safely learn to swim and users in rehabilitation can perform exercises with varying degrees of muscle strain.

Benefits of our movable floors

All of our products surpass the quality and safety threshold set by the European norm for equipment installed in swimming pools for public and medical use (the EN 13451).

A movable floor enables you to adjust the water depth of your swimming pool according to your personal preferences. This increases safety for users, especially children. In a raised position the swimming pool is inaccessible for incorrect or unsupervised use.

We design custom made movable floors to accommodate and integrate our clients demands. As a result, our clients are not bound to standard dimensions or shapes.

In a raised position, the movable floor ensures lower heating costs through insulation integrated in the floor. Since no dirt can enter the water and no chlorine evaporation takes place, there is a reduced use of chemicals. As a result, the energy requirement of the air treatment, if present, decreases and its lifespan extends.

Our technology enables us to use a minimal amount of moving parts, which reduces the costs and time of maintenance.

By using a floating principle, no technology will be visible either in or surrounding the pool. This is a major advantage from both an aesthetic and safety point of view.

In contrast to others, the technology of a Tieleman movable floor is powered by water, instead of oil. This makes water contamination and damage to the basin impossible.

There are countless ways to enrich and personalize a movable floor. Tailor-made options may vary from swim-out benches to integrated sundeck corners, jacuzzis and staircases. It is also possible to provide the movable floor with a locking system, which provides extra bearing capacity in a raised position.

Various options for your movable floor

Endless customization is a philosophy that is widely represented through the Tieleman movable floor range. Each movable floor will be exclusively engineered to incorporate the ideas and options desired by the client. At Tieleman, for example, you can choose from a variety of integrated pool stairs, integrated standing edges and therapeutic aids.

Movable floor in action

The unique Tieleman movable floor system consists of a floating platform which features a series of cables and a pulley system with a water-based hydraulic cylinder. When the movable floor is moved, the water will gently flow through the small gap (max. 8mm/0,31inch) around the floor. Within about four to five minutes your rehabilitation or therapy room is transformed into a full-size swimming pool.

Pool accessibility

As the swimming depth changes continuously, it is important that the pool is comfortably and safely accessible at any depth. Whether it’s an integrated staircase or a wheelchair ramp, at Tieleman you can choose from a wide range of additions to enhance the accessibility of your pool. 


Tieleman relies on over 50 years of research and development with some of the most renowned rehabilitation centres and hospitals to design and build their hydrotherapy related products. All manufactured products meet and exceed the needs in any medical application.
