Kafko Panel Liner Pools
Designed to be installed into the ground using 4′ x 4′, 100% Virgin, high impact polymer resin panels that will enable you to create a swimming pool in a matter of days.
Using structural Polymer foam panels you will be able to install a pool confidently knowing that any ground movement and, in the long term, corrosion will not affect your pool structure for a lifetime.
A Kafko panel system is built on simplicity.
A rectangular hole is excavated
Once excavated, Kafko Panels are simply bolted together along with a polymer brace and secured with a small amount of concrete to form a wall structure. 4 or 5t deep to the size of the pool plus an additional 24″ each side of the pool structure to allow for polymer bracing.
The structure is then back filled with 15 parts Ballast – 1 part cement. (A concrete foundation is not required beforehand nor a skilled tradesman to build the pool wall)
A sand and cement floor screed is applied to obtain a smooth floor for the pool liner. A one piece tailor-made liner is then installed into an aluminium coping receptor that is fixed to the top pool panels.
The Kafko Polymer Pool
After years of research and development, Kafko has introduced a new generation of unique polymer in ground pools. Our award winning polymer panels are strong and durable. Made of stable, non-biodegradable polymer greatly increases the longevity of the pool. In addition, the cellular structure acts as a thermal screen holding heat in the pool and blocking the penetrating cold from surrounding soils.
Kafko’s Polymer straight panel is made from high impact, polystyrene resin. The top, bottom and side rails of the panel are 4″ wide, and each panel is rigid with vertical and horizontal ribs. The centre vertical rib in the 6′ panel allows for a wall/deck support every three foot. Kafko Polymer Pools combine the rugged engineering of a moulded box-flange panel with the benefits of completely non-corrosive Structural Polymer, which means you can install a Kafko Pool where soil conditions prevent the use of conventional steel.
Heavy Duty Wall Brace System
The Kafko™ heavy duty wall brace system is designed to hold the pool walls in place, giving maximum support. The convenient ground stakes secure the panels from any movement before the pouring of concrete.
The Kafko™ heavy duty wall brace system allows for the attachment of a sono tube which will help carry the deck load and add strength to the overall pool structure.
48″ Polymer Walls
Available in the industry standard panel height of 42″ which gives you 3′ water depth in the shallow end of the pool. This pool is also available in 48″ high panels allowing for 6″ more water depth in the shallow end of the pool (3’6″ water depth).
The extra water depth is ideal for flat bottom pool designs which have become more popular in recent years, and 6″ of extra water depth in hopper design pools will increase the comfort level for adults using the shallow end of the pool.
