Here’s an overview of the painstaking process we use to manufacture our fiberglass pools:
Workers clean and prepare a mold to ensure it’s in perfect condition before it’s used to create a pool. The creation of every new pool is carefully logged and documented.
Three layers of gelcoat are sprayed onto the mold. The mold is left for a short time between each spray. Each stage of gelcoat application must pass stringent quality control tests before proceeding to the next stage.
Epoxy Vinyl Ester Application
This durable material is sprayed onto the coated mold to give the pool its waterproof quality. It is measured and carefully applied so that it matches the surface area of each individual pool, whatever size. The product is then left to cure before being checked once more by quality control. If it passes inspection, it’s ready to move to the final phase of the manufacturing process.
The first layer of fiberglass is applied as a “skin.” Once the skin layer has been completed, the pool undergoes a reinforcing stage with the application of Klegcell PVC close-cell foam. Workers fit the pool with lifting lugs, which allow it to be moved by crane for easier transportation. At this stage another layer is applied to cover all work and provide one last layer of reinforcement. The process is now complete.
We’re committed to maintaining a very high standard with our fiberglass swimming pools. Each pool has a corresponding manufacturer sheet to ensure that the correct quantity and quality of materials have been used. Research and development in conjunction with our suppliers is a very high priority for us. It helps to ensure that our products are always modern and unique.
