Supplier Directory Profile: Polin Waterparks and Pool Systems and constant innovation
A global leader in waterparks, Polin Waterparks and Pool Systems are constantly innovating.
Founded in Istanbul in 1976, Polin is know for its constant innovations and is currently pushing waterslide technology to new levels with its latest innovation.
Set to be launched at the 2014 International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Annual Convention and Trade Show in Orlando, Florida, its new waterslide components boast the advantage of serving as passive speakers that naturally amplify sound through the entire tube in addition to offering the company's unique, patented Natural Light Effects (NLE) technology.
Due to a special, patented process that Polin employs during the manufacturing of its tunnel-type fibreglass waterslide components, the tubes create beautiful, natural designs inside them as riders pass through. The special lighting effect - which requires no electricity - occurs from the indoor lights or the sun's rays shining through the slide's fibreglass sides and interacting with the flow of water through the tubes. The results are harmonious, colourful designs that continually change and adapt depending on the angle and strength of the sunlight. Both riders inside the slides and viewers on the ground can enjoy the dynamic experience as lighting changes throughout the day. The light effects can be of any theme, stripes, dots, or any design.
Polin was the first - and continues to be the only - waterslide manufacturer that offers slide components created from resin transfer molding (RTM) technology that feature NLE technology. In 2007, Polin took the technology a step further by applying it to its Magic Shine waterslides.
Today, however, Polin has pushed the envelope even further by adding a new sound technology to complement its Natural Light Effects and Magic Shine.
With Polin's new Natural Sound Effects technology, its waterslide modules essentially become giant speakers due to the company's innovative incorporation of the sound effects into the systems. Also known as bass shakers, these devices transmit a low-frequency vibration onto a surface - in this case, Polin's waterslide tubes - so that the vibrations turn into sound and can be heard by riders as they travel through the slide. Polin's waterslide components are the perfect, natural conduit for delivering high-quality surround sound and require only 50 to 70 watts of power to run each transducer. In fact, Polin's waterslide tubes offer almost perfect symmetry for delivering acoustics.
Those waterpark facilities with existing slides can easily take advantage of this new technology because integrating it does not require major changes to their slides. And, of course, the technology is exceptionally easy to incorporate into new slide construction.
Since 2006, Polin has converted all of its annual fibreglass production to light RTM and offers its unique Natural Light Effect (NLE) technology and Special Pattern Effects (SPE) in RTM, as well as translucent slides. Polin holds the patent for NLE application on RTM waterslides.
Polin has numerous global installations and many in Australia.
