Composite Armour™ Step Technology Overview

Leisure Pools believes that when you step into a swimming pool or sit on a bench in a swimming pool it needs to feel solid.

 Print
Although traditional fiberglass pools provide the feature of flexibility they also have the weakness of not feeling solid under foot as the pool shell is designed to flex.

Leisure Pools through its Composite Armour™ Step Technology™ has been able to reduce step and bench deflection providing a “solid” foundation for entry and exit steps and benches compared with normally constructed fiberglass pools.

The Composite Armour™ Step Technology™ provides the customer with a feeling of a solid foundation while still maintaining the many benefits of structural flexibility in the design of the swimming pool shell.

Composite Armour™ Step Technology Benefits

Leisure Pools has developed the Composite Armour™ Step Technology in order to offer the following amazing benefits:

  • When you step in and out of a Leisure Pools swimming pool you will have that solid feeling under foot. Unlike standard fiberglass swimming pools where the steps will flex under your weight.
  • When you sit on a bench in a Leisure Pools swimming pool you will have a solid and supporting feeling. Unlike standard fiberglass swimming pools where the benches will flex under your weight.

Testing shows that a Leisure Pools Composite Armour™ Full Vinyl Ester Resin Swimming Pool is 111% stronger than a standard fiberglass swimming pool. In addition to the inherent strength in a Leisure Pools swimming pool, through the use of Composite Armour™ Step Technology™ on all steps and benches, Leisure Pools has been able to reduce deflection on the steps and benches in comparison to a standard fiberglass swimming pool.
