Paddock movable bulkheads span the width of the pool and can be easily moved to different positions to create varying courses for competition (50 meter, 25 meter, 25 yards, etc.) or general use. They also divide the pool into sections, so lap swimming can be conducted on one side, and recreation, instruction, or diving on the other. A key benefit to the Paddock bulkhead is its flow-through design. Bulkheads are custom built for each individual pool but are usually 4, 5, or 6 feet wide, 4 feet deep, and 45, 60, or 75 feet in length. Paddock has been manufacturing movable bulkheads since 1971.
The corrosion resistant Type 316L, 316L/304L CLAD or 304L stainless steel frame is engineered for structural stability
Flow-through, slip-resistant PVC targets with 32% open area are installed at each racing lane to (1) facilitate movement, (2) allow circulation of chemically treated water inside the bulkhead to prevent algae growth, and (3) provide a textured surface for flip turns
Built-in variable buoyancy allows bulkhead to be quickly and easily moved to alternate locations
Wheels or skids are used to mount bulkhead to gutter or deck, depending on pool design
Each bulkhead is pre-fitted with accessories for attachment of racing lines, installation of platforms and handrails, and connection to electronic devices.
