The individual elements
Each set comprises mainly of the panel system which makes up the body of the pool, an overflow channel and corner strengtheners.
The panels, the wall of the pool
These panels are comprised of 2 mm thick hot galvanised steel sheets,
doubled-over for extra strength and reinforced with corner and rib strengtheners.
The rigidity of the structure allows it to handle pool pressure of up to 5 m deep.
The overflow channel
This is situated near the top of each panel, and is riveted to the stainless steel structure. The channel is also constructed using 2 mm thick hot galvanised steel
sheets and is totally modular, thanks to the lateral tensors. These tensors also
allow for all the small variations in the level of the pool water, ensuring perfect
overflow around the edge of the pool.
The reinforced strengtheners are also adjustable, allowing perfect pool assembly
down to the last millimetre.
· The lower strengthener allows the length and width of the pool to be
adjusted, whilst the side strengtheners adjust the tilt of the pool walls.
· The adjustment process can also be carried out when the pool is full of water.
· The inbuilt safety system prevents any unwanted adjustment of the pool
tensor system. The strengtheners can only be altered by using a special tool.
Similarly, there are special nuts on each strengthener.
The choice of steel and the high level of protection against rusting are just two examples of the quality inherent in our panels. For this reason, the company
dedicates all the necessary resources in order to always obtain steel of the very
The method used by AstralPool in order to protect the materials used from rust
is hot galvanisation. This is an innovative process which is being applied for
the first time to 2 mm thick steel sheets, and consists of immersing the steel
in molten zinc baths at approximately 450º C. Thanks to the working practices used, the type of steel selected and the professionalism employed in the galvanisation process, the deformation of the material as a result of stress or temperature changes can be completely prevented.
