SWIMMING POOL STEPS, NOSINGS, GRILLS AND FEATURES

The full range of services Aquacut offers the building industry makes the company unique in the UK. 

Aquacut has many swimming pool installation clients, some specialise in domestic pools, while others specialise in commercial pools.  As a result we have a lot of experience creating features for pools large and small, such as;

  • Pool nosings – see our bullnosing page
  • Finger grip grooves
  • Step cladding – see our step cladding page
  • Drainage grills of all shapes and sizes
  • Features and designs can add individuality, interest and a bit of fun to the pool and surroundings
  • Note:  we also supply pool gratings manufactured by EMCO, a leading German manufacturer – see details in our website

Swimming pool features usually combines a number of our services such as templating, waterjet cutting, anti-slip features, mitring, bullnosing and epoxy bonding.

POOL NOSINGS

We offer a selection of ways to create a suitable pool edge, from a simple bullnose to a bonded downstand and return, the choice is yours

FINGER GRIP GROOVES

We are sometimes asked to cut shallow finger grip grooves into tiles runing parallel with the pool edge.  These grooves, usually two or three, serve two purposes; they give swimmers a better grip on the side and they give a little more traction

STEP CLADDING

See our step cladding page for full details.  We can produce a variety of step shapes for our clients using their material.

DRAINAGE GRILLS OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES

Aquacut can template and manufacture swimming pool grills to our clients’ designs.  When the pool hall has been tiled with tiles less than 20mm thick, we can strengthen the grill tiles by either bonding another tile to the back, making a double thickness, or bonding grade 316 (marine quality) stainless steel onto the back of the tile before then cutting the drainage channels.  We can also fabricate less obvious drainage channels depending on clients’ tastes.

What we can do is truly limited by your imagination.
