The complexity of designing an indoor pool structure requires the services of a qualified design professional. These unique structures provide many challenges to design professionals because of the environment created by high moisture, elevated temperatures, and chemicals. Special attention must be paid to provide protection to the structural components, which may deteriorate in these conditions.
Trus Joist® engineered lumber products (ELP) have been used successfully in roof and floor systems over pools when proper design considerations have been followed. Technical Bulletin TB-108 provides information to assist the design professional in specifying Trus Joist® products when such products are determined to be suitable for indoor pool environments.
