The top-of-the-line starting block is the Omega OSB11. Omega timing products are manufactured by Swiss Timing and are the 'gold standard' in competitive swimming equipment. For example, the OSB11 is the starting block used in FINA meets such as the Olympics and USA Swimming meets such as National Championships and the U.S. Open. It comes in a simple version and also a more complex version that includes "relay break detection" which can detect false starts in both the beginning of a race and also at the point of exchange between relay swimmers. To find out where to purchase Omega swimming equipment, including blocks, touch pads, starting systems, high speed cameras, scoreboard displays, and much more, go to the Swiss Timing website's products page.

However, there are many types of starting blocks. Some of them have the ability to incorporate starting/timing systems into the blocks themselves (such as horns and flash bulbs in the individual blocks to allow synchronized starts from all lane positions). There are also differences in terms of the placement of steps and handles and the surface and construction materials. Some blocks accomodate rear foot anchors for swimmers using track starts. Some have side handles for swimmers using handle starts. Some are just basic blocks with a platform and backstroke starting bar. Obviously, the more bells and whistles you desire, the more expensive the blocks will be. They can run from hundreds of dollars per block to thousands per block.

Besides Omega, there are very good starting blocks from the following sample of companies:

-Spectrum Aquatics

-Paragon Aquatics

-Kiefer

To find the exact height requirements for starting blocks contact state swimming officials they have set standards for pools of different depths. If the pool is not deep enough you are not allowed to conduct starts off blocks. Hope this helps.

Dubai's hospitality sector has seen steady growth in the last two decades. Many hotel chains have seen a substantial increase in tourist influx. To improve their services, hotels now have additional amenities like spa, sauna, community swimming pools, and indoor pools as well. Many luxury villas also have heated pools built within their premise. With unprecedented growth in the swimming pool market, the allied industries like swimming pool equipment and maintenance systems have also seen many changes.Many swimming pool construction companies are securing dealerships of the equipment and maintenance contracts to provide a package deal to their clients. Premium swimming pool vendors like Makpools, Pearl Pool trading, Penguin Emirates, and Aquatech are some of the authorized Certikin dealers in Dubai. They are now supplying high-quality equipment such as underwater lighting, screeners, and filtration systems as part of the swimming pool project.Swimming pool maintenance is a very important process. Whether it is a private pool or a commercial pool, it needs periodic maintenance. Filtration systems, chemical treatments, and cleaning tools play a crucial role in keeping the pool clean and maintaining hygiene. Certikin vendors are equipped and trained in these services, making it another reason to deal with them.Regardspenguin-emirates

The newer the pool, the higher the chance that it's measured in meters. Proffesional or school swimming pools are measured in yards or meters. The newer the pool, the higher the chance that it's measured in meters. Proffesional or school swimming pools are measured in yards or meters.
