Profiles and panels
Profiles and panels
Aluminium profiles specially developed for pool enclosures have a wall thickness from 1 to 3 mm, are anodized or powder coated (RAL scale). The manufacturer (SAPA) is the holder of the ISO 9002 certificate. We use 3 types of profile: 38×50, 60×63, 60×80 mm. The longest aluminium profiles allow for a pool enclosure up to a width of 9 m – the smallest segment. The guide rails used for the largest enclosure structures are the Progres, Grande, 15 – 18 mm in height. Maximum segment width is 2450 mm.

Surface working of aluminium profiles:
The pool enclosure structure is filled with honeycomb polycarbonate: 10 mm, 8 mm, or 4 mm compact polycarbonate. We use two-wall or four-wall honeycomb polycarbonate. The polycarbonate filling causes what is known as the greenhouse effect. Solar rays dispersed in the atmosphere warm the water and air in the enclosure, even on cloudy days. At night or on cool and overcast days the water and air cool more slowly. The outer surface of all polycarbonate panels is covered with a layer of high-quality UV stabilizer, which absorbs the effects of harmful UV radiation and prevents the polycarbonate from damage, racking, or unwanted changes in colour.
Types of polycarbonate panels:
Properties of quad-wall polycarbonate:
Quad-wall polycarbonate increases heat insulation by 13 % (in comparison with two-wall polycarbonate). The NO DROP invisible film applied on the surface of the polycarbonate makes condensed water flow down the walls of the pool enclosure quickly and effectively, so it does not trickle down. Thanks to this surface finish, water flows down the inner side of the swimming pool enclosure. Four-wall polycarbonate is only supplied clear.
Properties of twin-wall polycarbonate:
NO DROP invisible film applied on the surface of the polycarbonate makes condensed water flow down the walls of the swimming pool enclosure quickly and effectively, so it does not trickle down. Thanks to this surface finish, water flows down the inner side of the pool enclosure. We offer twin-wall polycarbonate is four different colour shades: Clear, Green, Light-blue, Brown.
Properties of compact polycarbonate:
Compact 4 mm polycarbonate has much better optical properties than twin-walled polycarbonate. It can be used as the filling for the entire pool enclosure or for some parts only – e.g. front walls, side walls, etc.
