Abstract

The present invention relates to a fence (1) in particular for a water reserve (10), such as a swimming pool comprising a plurality of tubular elements, and the fenced water reserve obtained.This fence (1) is characterized in that at least a part of said tubular elements has means for connection to a fluid circulation circuit for the circulation of said fluid inside said tubular elements.

Description

The present invention relates to the field of fences for water supply,

  of the type comprising a plurality of tubular elements, as well as fenced water reserves, such as swimming pools, comprising a water supply circuit and a fence.

  Recent French regulations have made it compulsory, for safety reasons, to completely close bathing pools, including for private pools. Whatever their design, for example vertical rows and uprights, or a succession of vertical uprights and panels interposed between said uprights, these fences are cumbersome because they occupy in the immediate vicinity of the basin, an extended space made unusable for recreation by their presence. An object of the present invention is, therefore, to make at least a part of these fences ponds versatile.

  For this purpose, the fence according to the invention, in particular for water supply, comprising a plurality of tubular elements, is characterized in that at least a portion of said tubular elements has means for connection to a fluid circulation circuit. for the circulation of said fluid inside said tubular elements. The fence is thus formed of a supporting frame of a tubular structure itself formed of tubular elements, this tubular structure being attached or made in one piece with said frame. When the framework is formed of uprights and crosspieces, at least a portion of the uprights and / or cross members of the frame organized in a network may constitute the tubular elements of the tubular structure within which the fluid flows. The tubular elements of the tubular structure may equivalently be reported on the uprights and / or sleepers constituting the frame of the fence. These tubular elements may further be integrated with filling elements constituting the frame of the fence when the latter comprises amounts connected to crosspieces and / or to filling elements such as panels. In each case, the tubular structure formed of tubular elements is provided with a fluid inlet and a fluid outlet.

  Preferably, the fluid circulation circuit is a water supply circuit of said water reserve. In the usual way, the water supply system of a swimming pool comprises pipes connected to filtration and water treatment devices (pH, disinfection, etc.).

  Moreover, at present for the heating of water bathing basins, solar collectors are increasingly used connected to the water supply device. However, these solar collectors are in the form of large panels that are unattractive and also occupy a large space near the pool: they are usually arranged in battery, either on neighboring roofs or inclined on the ground, in a sunny area around of the basin. As it is usual to place swimming pools in an environment intended to be largely sunny during the day, said tubular elements of the fence may advantageously have walls made of a heat conductive material, able to be heated under the action solar radiation and to allow the heating of the fluid flowing inside said tubular elements. Thus the tubular elements of said fence can serve as solar collectors. These tubular elements may be finned tubes, so as to increase the heat exchange surface between the wall of the tube and the fluid flowing inside said tube, the tubular elements preferably being covered externally with a translucent material leaving pass the solar radiation. According to a first embodiment of the invention, the fence is made in the form of a railing having crosspieces and uprights constituting said tubular elements. In this case, the frame of the fence and the tubular structure formed of tubular elements are combined and made in one piece. According to a second embodiment of the invention, the fence is made in the form of a guard having a succession of uprights and panels interposed between said amounts, at least a portion of the amount; and / or panels serving as support for the tubular elements. These tubular elements can form the outer cladding of the uprights and / or panels. In this case, the tubular elements advantageously cover the uprights coaxially or spirally. Thus, the present invention relates both fences already installed on which tubular elements are fitted, that fences designed during the installation of the basin, and comprising from the beginning said tubular elements.

  The present invention also relates to any fenced water reserve including a water supply circuit and a fence as described above, the tubular elements being connected to the water supply circuit of said reserve. The water reserve may be, for example, the pool of bathing water such as a swimming pool.

  Thus the fence according to the invention is versatile and multifunctional serving both as a closing chamber of the water reserve and "solar collector" for heating the water of this water supply. This results in significant space savings. Other features and advantages will emerge from the following description of the nonlimiting examples of embodiment of the invention, with reference to the appended figures in which: FIG. 1 is a diagram illustrating a fence portion according to the first embodiment FIG. 2 shows a detail of a tubular element variant according to the first embodiment of the invention, FIG. 3 shows a tubular element detail according to the second embodiment of the invention. FIG. 4 is a block diagram of a water supply circuit of a pre-existing water reserve including a fence according to the invention, FIG. 5 shows a detail of the water supply circuit of the Figure 4, Figure 6 is a block diagram of a water supply circuit of a water reserve to build including a fence according to the invention. Referring to FIG. 1, the closing portion 1 according to a first embodiment of the invention is made in the form of a railing comprising a succession of vertical uprights 2 spaced apart from one another and held in position. placed by the lices or horizontal crosspieces 3 high and low, the assembly being supported by vertical reinforcements 4 whose feet 5 are sealed or bolted to the ground 6. In the example shown in Figure 1, the amounts 2 and the sleepers 3 consist of tubular elements connected to each other whose hollow interior portion allows a passage of a liquid, said liquid flowing inside the uprights 2 being collected at the crosspieces 3 serving as a high and low collector. These tubular elements are made of a thermally conductive material, preferably of dark color, to capture the maximum amount of solar radiation and to communicate the calories thus produced to the liquid circulating inside them. According to a variant of the first embodiment of the invention, represented in FIG. 2, the tubular elements, in particular the vertical tubular elements, are cylindrical finned tubes 7 having a corrugated inner and outer surface, so as to increase, for a same height, on the one hand the outer surface of exposure to solar radiation and on the other hand the internal exchange surface with the fluid. The connection on the horizontal collectors, here the crosspieces 3, can be performed by welding or by means of tight sliding sliders (not shown).

  The solar collectors thus produced can be covered externally with a cylindrical tube 8 in translucent material, transparent to solar radiation, to optimize the solar yield by greenhouse effect.

  According to the second embodiment of the invention, shown in Figure 3, the uprights 2 and sleepers 3 serve as a support for a spiral flexible or semi-rigid tubular element 9 wound around them. The liquid circulates here in the spiral tubular element whose amount 2 constitutes the rigid fixed axis. In this case, the tubular elements are attached to the frame of the fence.

  Figure 4 shows a block diagram of a water supply circuit of a water reserve 10 with pre-existing fence 1. The tubular element covers the fence 1 according to three possibilities shown diagrammatically in FIG. 4: the first possibility presented in a first zone referenced 11 comprises a tubular element disposed coaxially on the uprights and snaking from one end of the fence located near the fence. a pumping device 12 towards the other end of the fence 1; the second, shown schematically in the second zone 13, comprises a tubular element dressing (in the form of a single tube or a bundle of tubes) a vertical panel 14 disposed between cross members 3 and uprights 2 or reinforcements 4; the third, shown schematically in the third zone 15, comprises a tubular element covering a solid vertical panel 16 occupying the entire height of the fence 1 and disposed between uprights 2 or reinforcements 3. The water of the reserve 10 is sucked by via a strainer 17 immersed in the basin and conveyed to the pumping device 12 via a flexible suction tube 18, preferably flat for a lesser inconvenience of the users on the beach 20. The pumping device 12 can be, for example, a self-priming pump.

  The water is thus drawn into the reserve 10, injected through the previously described tubular elements in which it heats up and heated back to the other end of the fence 1 via the discharge tube 19. According to Figure 6 showing a diagram principle of a water supply circuit of a water reserve 10 to build, the fence 1 may comprise tubular elements of the type of those shown with reference to Figure 4 or comprise tubular elements of the type of those presented in FIGS. 1 and 2: they are merely partially schematized here in the form of a coil 21.

  The water of the reserve 10 is sucked by means of the pump P through the suction port 22, led to a filter F and then to one end of the fence 1 via the valve A, through the tubular element exposed to solar radiation to be heated and is redirected through the valve C in said reserve 10 at the inlet mouth 23. In operation, one can have a functioning without heating water: in this case the valves A and C are closed and the valve B is open; or with water heating, in this case valves A and C are open and valve B is closed.

  The three valves A, B and C can be replaced, for example by a three-way electric valve controlled by temperature probes (not shown), arranged for example on the fence 1 at the inlet and outlet of the pumping system presented on this figure 6.
