Reflex Water Slide, New York State 

The Reflex water slide was designed to add hours of pool-side fun for a family in Westchester, NY and to serve as a sculptural highlight in this spectacular setting.  Water is released in a series of outlets that cool the entire sliding surface in the sun. Water flows through the handrails keeping them cool to the touch. Made from marine-grade stainless steel, it will not corrode, and is built to last a lifetime. Safety is engineered into all our luxury slides from the outset. With grip underfoot on the steps and an easy-to-grab handrail that, in this case, is incorporated seamlessly into the sculpture, the slides are designed to British and US safety standards. Splinter Works take commissions for custom pool slides; tailored to suit your project’s climate, budget and setting.
