Previewing the spa offering at SPATEX 2020…
Big brands like the Aqua Warehouse Group, Sunbeach, Superior Spas and Wellis lead the charge of the hot tub and swim spa brigade at this year’s SPATEX exhibition. The event returns to Coventry’s Ricoh exhibition venue with more than 20 exhibitors having a toe dipped in the hot tub and swim spa sector. The event delivers on unmissable appeal with a unique shop window for specialist retailers searching for standout products that warrants premium showroom floor space.
With heightened interest in climate control and energy efficient initiatives, the UK Pool & Spa Awards Energy Efficiency Spa Product Of The Year from Sunbeach Spas on stand B32 is one not to be overlooked. “One of the most significant ongoing costs of any hot tub is keeping it heated with customers wanting to know how much it will take to run,” comments the appropriately named Wayne Green. “Unlike standard cabinet insulation which relies on foam blocks and reflective foil, R10 insulation is a spray on, high-density closed cell foam which is thickly applied to not only the shell but all interior surfaces of the hot tub,” he adds. Another UK Pool & Spa Awards winner, the UK Spa Product Of The Year will be on display on stand F50 under the care of the Spa Solutions team.
The futuristic IKON by Vortex Spas design is set to seriously challenge the preconceptions of the spa pool as a naff plastic square box. Aside from the obvious sculptural and architectural differences, the materials used in the construction are from the marine and architectural industries and, subsequently designed to withstand the elements a lot longer than more traditional materials.
