New steps improve access to Cockburn ARC pool

November 13, 2017

The award winning Cockburn ARC aquatic facility in southern metropolitan Perth has introduced new pool steps to allow anyone of any ability - elderly, arthritic, expectant mothers, young learners or anyone who is uncomfortable with or has difficulty using traditional vertical swimming pool ladders - to enter its 25 metre pool.

The Platypus Pool Steps were introduced following customer feedback and allow participants to enter and exit the pool more easily during the aqua classes held in the mornings.

Since 2015, when it ended importing the Easy Ladder from the USA, NSW-based Para Mobility have been manufacturing Platypus Pool Steps in Australia.

On their website, Para Mobility advise “the Steps are 100% Australian made and owned (which) gives us greater quality control, a localised product and keeps our pricing highly competitive without worrying about the variable strength of the Aussie Dollar.”

Cockburn ARC has also introduced an outdoor inflatable in its 50 metre outdoor pool which will operate on Saturday and Sunday afternoons up to Christmas. The inflatable was supplied by Aflex.
