Swimming Pool Construction Specfication
takes pride in its No Compromise approach
to its swimming pool shell construction.
The MOST important factor of any swimming pool is the specification
and the way in which the shell is formed.
An important point to note, is that our typical pool shell is traditional
and accurate in section and dimension with a shallow
end, slope and deep end. The walls are vertical and extend to full
depth of the deep end with a 300mm radius at the wall floor joint.
This configuration gives a greater volume of swimming area, against
the cost-saving hopper or bowl type commonly found in the market
This traditional style of pool allows us to complete a craftsman-like
finish to our mosaic tiling, without the need to make
unsightly cuts and seams in the finished surface.
Our pools shells conform to rigorous BS 8007 standards
and are covered by full
10 year warranty.
Following the accurate excavation, sub floor preparation with
porous 100mm layer of dry-lean concrete and any necessary underpool
drainage works, the shape of the pool is formed with a lightweight
shuttering, to exact dimensions required. At this stage, we
incorporate any features such as level deck overflow, balance
tanks, automatic pool cover housings, integrated Spa units,
steps, seats or any other relevant design feature. There is
no limitation to the shape we can provide.
next stage is to fix the steel reinforcement to the individual
required specification. This singularly is the most IMPORTANT
part of shell construction and is the very backbone of the pool
itself. We can design the pool shell simply to support the walkway
around the pool or even the pool enclosure itself.
the shell is completed by applying a special mix of sprayed
concrete at high velocity to specified minimum structural thickness
and accurately finished by hand. This process can take one or
many days, dependent on the size or complexity of the pool,
curing to an immense compressive strength of 35 Newtons.
entire pool shell construction is carried out by our own in-house
subsidiary company Guntek Ltd, enabling us to guarantee the
highest possible standard of workmanship at this crucial stage.
completion of the pool shell, the shuttering is removed allowing
our engineers to install and test the circulation pipework and
The pool shell is now ready for its final coats of waterproof
render and mosaic tiles.
