Composite Armour™

Core of Strength


This is totally new technology in composite swimming pool manufacturing. This patented new technology is designed to significantly reinforce the composite swimming pool with a strategically integrated laminate that consists of a blend of DuPont™ Kevlar®, Carbon Fibre and Basalt Fibre. We call it our Core of Strength.

High performance fibres have been used in many cutting edge applications. DuPont™ Kevlar® is used in bullet proof vests, body armour, military vehicles, wind turbines and aerospace applications. Carbon Fibre and Basalt Fibre are used in aerospace and high performance automotive applications. When combined through Leisure Pools patented new technology, Composite Armour™ brings a new level of performance to the production of composite swimming pools.

By using Composite Armour™ in the pool shell laminate, we have been able to achieve tremendous improvement in flexural and tensile strength compared with normally constructed fibreglass pools.

This new patented technology in swimming pool manufacturing is designed to significantly reinforce the pool with a strategically-integrated laminate consisting of a blend of DuPont Kevlar®, carbon fibre and basalt fibre – a core of strength.

These high-performance fibres have many applications in cutting-edge technology, and when combined through Leisure Pools’ patented new technology, Composite Armour™ brings a new level of performance to the production of composite swimming pools. By using Composite Armour™ in the pool shell laminate, they have been able to achieve tremendous improvement in flexural and tensile strength compared with normally constructed fibreglass pools.

Testing shows that a Leisure Pools Composite Armour™ full vinyl ester resin swimming pool is 111% stronger than a standard fibreglass swimming pool.

Step Technology

Leisure Pools believes that when you step into a swimming pool or sit on a bench in a swimming pool it needs to feel solid. With the Composite Armour™ step technology, deflection of steps and benches has been reduced. This provides a more solid foundation for entry and exit steps, compared with normally-constructed fibreglass pools.
