The Appeal Of Stainless Steel The benefits of a Natare stainless steel pool go way beyond strength and durability. In addition to the options on polished finishes, tiles and colourful linings are also possible

Whilst still a niche sector, the appeal of stainless steel pools goes much further than them being chosen solely for challenging environments. Trendsetters love their polished looks and the same is true for many pool accessories too. Strength and durability combined with timeless aesthetics – it’s no surprise that stainless steel options are always in demand and in this issue, we examine just some of the available options By Jon Wadeson


he unique characteristics of stainless steel that make it so ideal for the use in building swimming pools, spas and their associated accessories include its low weight, strength, flexibility, durability and corrosion resistance. Add to that aesthetics which exude quality and which never go out of fashion, and it’s easy to see why the appeal of stainless steel endures. But the benefits of using stainless steel for swimming pool projects don’t stop there. With the ability to ‘pre-engineer’ pools in a modular process, similar to the ways that have been developed for virtually all aspects of modern building, designers and contractors can now also utilise the efficiency of the construction process and save considerable time and money during the pool build. As with smaller stainless steel accessories, components for a complete pool project 69-72_SPN_Aug_17_Stainless_Pools.indd 69

are produced to proven design templates in manufacturing facilities where quality control is strictly monitored. This process means that construction surprises are virtually eliminated and accurate costs are always known. With many advantages over other materials used for pool builds and in the production of many accessories, it seems the flexible nature of stainless steel will guarantee its use for many years to come and in this issue, we take a closer look at just some of the stainless steel solutions that are on the market in 2017.
