About Patented Composite Armour™ Core of Strength
This is heavy-duty strength! It is the fibreglass swimming pool industry’s most advanced technology available. The patented process reinforces each pool shell, layer by layer. The overall composite of the fibreglass swimming pool shell core of strength is reinforced with a blend of DuPont™ Kevlar®, Carbon Fibre, and Basalt Fibre.
DuPont™️ Kevlar® is used in military and law enforcement applications, such as in body armor and bullet-proof vests. It is also used in aerospace applications and on military vehicles and wind turbines.
Carbon Fibre and Basalt Fibre are also used in the aerospace industry and high-performance automotive applications. Pair them with Kevlar®, and you have a genuinely “bullet-proof” surface that will perform beautifully for a lifetime. These three high-performance materials are virtually impenetrable and are part of our patented Leisure Pools Composite Armour.
Durable AND Flexible
These layers of protection aren’t just durable. They’re also flexible.
Flexural and tensile strength are vital in composite fibreglass pool shell construction and Composite Armour has plenty of both. Flexural strength (bend strength) and tensile strength (unbreakable under tension pressure) ensure your fibreglass pool shell is strong enough to withstand stresses with ground shifting, swelling, contraction, and extreme changes in weather conditions. Floods, drought, extreme temperature highs, and lows – even snow, ice, and frost — have failed to penetrate Leisure Pools’ Composite Armour when the pool has been properly maintained.
Leisure Pools continues to invest heavily in Research and Development to improve upon our industry-leading standards. Most recently, it has included adding additional layers of support below splash pads and spas to provide greater strength and support while also providing the added benefit of allowing installers to be more secure with their installations.
