The Tilestone Pool is Paramount Pools’ latest offering, giving you the luxury of a tiled pool in a fraction of the time.
Made from reinforced GRP, with a 50mm high-density PU foam and steel carbon framework, the Tilestone comes ready made to fit directly into your previously excavated and prepared hole – a 100mm concrete sub-base with drained is required. We then lower the pool in by crane, level and back-fill it so it is ready for tiling with a specialist epoxy adhesive – either standard 25mm mosaic, or large format 600 x 300 tiles can be applied.
The delivered Tilestone shell is preformed with all necessary shell fittings such as lights and inlets, and depending on your location will come in one or two pieces, which when put assembled will be comparable to the strength of a gunite concrete structure. A wide range of standard sizes is available to choose from, although a custom build surface is offered for more particular requirements.
The construction of Tilestone pools is 100% waterproof, with no structural leaks, and will not corrode over time like steel or RC. The flexibility of the pool – compared to concrete – allows for greater resistance against thermal or physical stresses, and structural failure is virtually unheard of. Each pool is perfectly constructed in factory controlled conditions to create a higher level of quality and consistency than found in gunite on-site construction.
A standard Tilestone pool is rectangular in design with a pool depth of 1.5m, although this can be adjusted. The maximum length available in one piece is 11.5m x 3.70m. The rectangular shape allows you to use the best fitting varieties of slatted or fabric safety covers, and the fully-insulated wall and sides will considerably reduce energy running costs, which are already assisted by a U-value of 0.25W/m²K (calculated in accordance with BS EN ISO 13370:2007). Luxe can even manufacture your ‘pit housings’ to contain the cover system.
Minimum overdig required is 300mm for the pool structure – this allows the possibility of installing a Tilestone pool inside. For this purpose – and also for properties with restricted access – the Tilestone can be delivered in two pieces instead of one.
Luxe Tilestone pools allow you to design your own ideal pool system. Working with your drawings and plans, we can create the pool of your dreams, showing you CAD drawings with dimensions at every step of the way. All CAD diagrams are specific to your project, and alterations are easily handled.
As an alternative to the full size Tilestone, a Luxe ‘trainer pool’ offers the perfect solution when space is at a premium. The trainer pool measures 5 x 2m, comes complete with an Aquamatic Safety Cover, and can be fitted with a variety of swim jet fittings to help accelerate your training.
