Bespoke Builds

Bespoke fountains and water feature builds from Heathland Fountains and Aerators, Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, UK

We supply and install an extensive range of what you might describe as off-the-shelf fountains and aerators, but from time to time, one of our customers has a special requirement that pushes the boundaries on water display and aeration needs.  This is where our bespoke fountain and aeration service can be used to design a system that achieves our client's  dreams and aspirations for their water feature.

Bespoke Fountains

Our current fountain and aeraion range is huge and varied and covers most requirements, but from time to time we need to push the limit, literally new heights, with water fountains that are able to achieve heights of 30 metres and total display widths and diameters of 60 metres. All of our bespoke systems follow the development processes outlined below;

  • Investigations into the requirement.
  • Design of the bespoke fountain system.
  • Design of the control aspect of the system.
  • Lighting design where required.
  • Approval from the customer.
  • Build process.
  • PDI.
  • Installation of all equipment (customer to supply the power to the controller)
  • Site tests and inspections.
  • Sign-off.

All of our fountain designs are available in a floating or stationary arrangemen,t but generally in deeper lakes, the fountain will need to be a floating system, unless we have a platform to work from. As with any of the fountain units supplied within the UK or Europe, any fountain over 2 horse power will require a three phase supply. Power requirements will be assessed early on as the customers supply may be limited and restrict the bespoke foutain build.

In this category we also take in to consideration the display type, static or dynamic? The dynamic fountain display option brings together both movement of water, light and in some cases music. We have the programming ability in-house to create some outstanding water displays, which dance to sounds, again these are available in a static and floating arrangement.

Bespoke Aeration Systems 

As with our fountains range the aerators are available in many sizes and variations but from time to time we may need to work within a sensitive environment or on a project with a high profile customer with specific needs. It may be that disturbance to wildlife or disruption to sediments must be taken in to account? We may need to look at certain elements of the aeration system to cater for these requirements, so that all the goals can be achieved.

An example of our special aeration systems would be the weed and debris curtains, these allow boats to freely pass over but cause a surface disturbance capable of holding back miles of Duckweed. These are a big benefit to Marinas and Canal systems where specific weeds can choke an area during the warmer months of the year.

Again as with the fountain systems we follow a similar procedure to the design of  bespoke aeration systems;

  • Investigations into the requirement.
  • Design of the bespoke aeration system.
  • Design of the control aspect of the system.
  • Approval from the customer.
  • Build process.
  • PDI.
  • Installation of all equipment (customer to supply the power to the controller)
  • Site tests and inspections.
  • Sign-off.
