Composite Armour™ Overview
Leisure Pools’ Composite Armour™ is revolutionary new technology in composite swimming pool manufacturing.
This patented technology is designed to significantly reinforce the composite swimming pool with a strategically integrated laminate that consists of a blend of DuPont™ Kevlar®, Carbon Fibre and Basalt Fibre. We call it our Core of Strength.
By using Composite Armour™ in the pool shell laminate, Leisure Pools has been able to achieve tremendous improvement in flexural and tensile strength compared with normally constructed fibreglass pools.
Leisure Pools’ patented Composite Armour™ is available in the entire Leisure Pools range of swimming pools.
Testing shows that a Leisure Pools Composite Armour™ Full Vinyl Ester Resin Swimming Pool is 111% stronger than a standard fibreglass swimming pool.DuPont™ Kevlar® is a registered trademark of DuPont™
Composite Armour™ Benefits
So why is it important to have improved flexural and tensile strengths? Well, with changing weather conditions we are exposed to greater extremes of weather from floods one year to droughts the next. As a result, when we have floods the ground swells and when we have droughts the ground contracts. As a result, anything installed in the ground is exposed to extremes of ground movement.
Leisure Pools have recognised this and with the use of the Composite Armour™ Core of Strength we are providing additional flexural and tensile strength properties through the use of high performance fibres such as DuPont™ Kevlar®, Carbon Fibre and Bassalt Fibre to better withstand these ground movement changes.
Remember, it is all about safeguarding your investment both in terms of the swimming pool shell itself and all of your associated paving, decking, landscaping etc.DuPont™ Kevlar® is a registered trademark of DuPont™
Composite Armour™ Schematics
Leisure Pools has strategically integrated the Composite Armour™ Core of Strength in critical locations on the swimming pool to provide improved flexural and tensile strength to provide a stronger swimming pool.
