The Panels

At the heart of our panel design, the basic pool shell is made up of our modular panels – made to measure in our specialist fabrication unit in South Devon.

Manufactured in fibreglass, the smooth clean-faced panels are easy to handle and connect together, allowing them to be fixed, aligned and secured quickly.

A typical 10m x 5m pool wall system can be connected together in one day, in any weather. Heatform’s clever inverta-panel design ensures you always have a pool fitting where you need it.

The 1m and 1.5m panels have skimmer and inlet indents, whilst the 0.5m and 2.5m panels have filtration flow and return indents. All panels have an indent for an LED light. These are filled with simple foam knockouts allowing easy positioning of fittings where you require them in the pool.

Encapsulated patented insulation helps U-values to be met in accordance with Part-L building regulations.

The pool walls are supported by easily adjustable bracing bars ensuring the panels remain vertical during the construction phase.

Ten easy installation steps

1. The panels are connected together and fixed to a concrete base or ring beam
2. The filtration holes are cut and pool fittings connected
3. The vertical braces are fixed into place
4. The low level concrete ring beam is poured to set the base of the panels into position
5. The walls are supported and the free draining back fill is positioned behind the wall
6. The surround ring beam is poured, fixing the top of the pool panels into position
7. The floor is screeded and smoothed to shape
8. The liner is installed and water added
9. The coping and surround or cladding are completed
10. Sit back and enjoy your new pool!
