Plastica manufacture a range of heat retention covers specifically designed to minimise this loss. The need to reduce carbon emissions has become greater than ever. Most establishments are looking for new ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Installing a heat retention cover is the single, most effective means of reducing swimming pool energy consumption. Fit the right cover on your pool and you will see a reduction in energy bills of up to £18,000 per annum (figures based on a 25m x 12m pool at 2011 prices). Typical payback on our customers’ systems is just 12 months. Once your pool cover is in place you will virtually eliminate evaporation and benefit from reduced humidity and condensation.

Barnards Farm Gardens are 22 hectares of landscaped gardens open to the public as part of the National Gardens Scheme. One way to see the vast expanse is to travel on the miniature railway. To enhance the visitor experience and to make it weather proof, Barnards Farm Gardens commissioned Fordingbridge to design and build the two canopies which form a station and ‘waiting room’. The first canopy was designed and installed by Fordingbridge a few years ago. The client came back to Fordingbridge with the brief of a light and airy weather protected space to be used as a waiting / café area.
