The utilisation of a Stark Bulkhead makes for a truly versatile facility for indoor and outdoor swimming pools.  Whether it’s recreational, instructional or competitive events, these activities can be run simultaneously within separate areas of the same swimming pool; thereby offering aquatic centres increased utilisation and improved financial performance.  Stark Bulkheads (otherwise known as Booms) are designed and manufactured for strength, endurance, beauty and ease-of-use. The patented floatation (pool boom) system allows for easy repositioning without the need for rollers or pallet trucks, which can cause damage to wet-decks and pool edges.  Ceramic Solutions are exclusive Australian distributors of Stark Bulkheads and specialise in the installation process.

  • Allows simultaneous activites to take place in one pool increasing pool usage and bottom line.

No Wetdeck Obstructions

Stark Bulkheads (pool booms) can accommodate any gutteror pool perimeter configuration. Unlike other movable systems, Stark Bulkheads are designed so the bulkhead structure doesn’t impede upon the concourse. This allows for greater useable concourse areas and prevents tripping hazards. It also ensures no impact damage occurs to the wetdeck and surrounds when moving, and allows for easy access to the pool
gutter system for cleaning and maintenance.
