July 2018 47 Left: This stainless steel product built by Diamond Spas is 81"x 107"x 30" and has 36 jets. It is made with custom steps and two water features. A rigid foam cover is used for the spa when it is not in use, and a custom floating pool blanket is available for the summertime. PHOTO: MARK WOOLCOTT Below: This custom copper spa is 15'x 8' and is big enough for 12-14 people. It has 36 jets and an internal step, also useful as a cooling off bench. Natural gas is used to heat the spa, and a standard rigid home cover is available when the tub is not in use. PHOTO: MARK WOOLCOTT Left: Sometimes called a Vitality Tub, this smaller spa fits two people. Its form is designed to mimic the body's curves and proportions. The water can be changed out between guest uses. "Button" air fittings at the floor disperse "champagne" bubbles in the water. Hydrotherapy jets are located on the sidewalls to massage the body. Custom lighting and a waterfall complete the spa. PHOTO: BRADFORD PRODUCTS Metals allow the designer to create almost unlimited shapes and dimensions. Curves and hard edges are two exterior features that can be easily added to the metal structure. In addition, with almost every metal spa being a custom spa, all forms of scuppers, waterfalls, jets and seating and entry levels are possible. So the next time a clients asks for a spa and also wants it to blend with the environment or match the existing landscape, and plaster or stock fiberglass won't get it done, take a look at metals. They might just be the answer.
