STEELGLASS, A CAREFULLY STRUCTURED POOL CONCEPT.
We can divide the creation process of the pool in three parts:
1. THE STRUCTURE
It’s the first part of the process that brings the necessary resistance to withstand the pressure of the large volume of water that the pool holds.
we use a modular structure of steel panels (2 mm thick). An high performance steel, that is galvanized and plastic coated (140 microns on both sides) and also protects from scratches and perforations, all life anticorrosion guaranteed. This freestanding structure offers a resistance of 19.900 kgs/m2, like the resistance of a concrete wall of thickness 45 cm.
This part is the most important to avoid water leaks. Logically is a necessary step and for this reason we have selected a flexible PVC membrane (1.3mm thickness) that should be fully adhered to the structure and to the access chosen with a double thermofusion soldering. This membrane is fully waterproof and its flexibility permits a complete adaptability to the ground movements, avoiding water lacks. Without any doubt is one of the best sealing systems to offer leakthighness to the pool, for this reason is always used by professionals.
There are two main differences between Steelglass and the others:
-the membrane is totally adherent to the pool thanks to a special adhesive (and not to the water pressure)
-the PVC membrane isn’t the final layer so Steelglass removes two possibles inconveniences: discoloration by chemical products and plastic feeling to the touch.
Between the flexible PVC membrane fully adhered to the structure and the final vitreous coating of the pool (stoneware) we are going to applicate another special patented adhesive. For this reason we have chosen the best stoneware, glued togheter with silicon mash. In the areas of access, to avoid slippings and fallings, we install a special stoneware treated not to lose slip resistance.
On the other hand, we’ve chosen a grout with high resin components that gives flexibility and durability to the structure:
You don’t have to substitute your grout every 5 years, but at least every 10 years!
Poolsides are generally made of natural reconstructed stone in different colours, with rounded edges.
