Today, panel pools lined with reinforced sheets are becoming increasingly popular. This is due, in part, to the advantages over other forms of construction, since this is a much faster and simpler way to build a pool.
The use of fully prefabricated components, together with an easy assembly system, considerably cuts down assembly time. This makes it possible to build a pool of any size in almost record time.
New design and manufacturing systems are used to obtain premium quality, functionality and durability of all pool components. This makes it a completely safe construction system that delivers the reliability required for this type of installation.
The Skypool system is Astralpool’s range of panel pools, which adapt to both permanent and temporary infrastructures. Hot-dip galvanizing in a zinc bath ensures that the galvanized steel panels have excellent anti-rust protection, guaranteeing safety and durability.
Skypool Renovation Panel
Renovation panels are the ideal solution for any old pools that have to be renovated to adapt to current standards and to give them a new lease on life.
Quick and easy to install with no need to tear down the entire pool, all you have to do with these galvanized steel renovation panels is remove the edge of the pool and install a new overflow channel. They are available in ceramic and non-ceramic finishes, with built-in drainage outlets. The most inexpensive solution to give your pool a new lease on life.
The Laghetto Bluespring modular structure makes it possible to build elegant pools with geometric or customized shapes paired with exceptional quality and durability. This self-supporting double-walled perimeter structure, with overflow channel and built-in compensation tank, does not require a retaining wall or earth filling with materials like sand or gravel. This keeps masonry work to a minimum.
The first step is to fabricate the panels, which is done during the design phase of the pool and is customized and individualized for each project.
The panels, once fabricated, are transported to the location where the pool will be installed. After unloading the panels and materials onto the previously prepared concrete slab, the corners of the pool are marked and the chemical anchors are attached. The panels are then assembled with the leveling rods and screwed into place by attaching them to the chemical anchors. The filtration ducts are then installed.
The pool is waterproofed with a reinforced PVC liner. The finishes are then installed on the top of the porcelain material and the pool is filled to check for leaks and subsequently leveled.

Temporary competition pools
Thanks to Skypool’s lightweight, quick installation and easy disassembly features, this system is a perfect choice for new sports uses and the subsequent official FINA certification to host official events.
Permanent competition pools
The versatility, reliability and impermeability of Skypool panels make these pools an ideal choice for official competitions. To host these competitions, however, pools must comply with the national and international federation regulations, like FINA.
Combining Skypool panels and concrete walls makes it possible to create the great heights required for diving pools. This saves on construction costs and ensures the athlete’s safety.
Rooftop pools tend to provide a very distinctive visual appeal for hotels, sports clubs and wellness centers. Rooftop installation, however, adds a level of technical complexity to the project. The Skypool system’s lightness, versatility and easy installation makes it possible to create rooftop pools with amazing precision, speed and safety.
Indoor pools in existing buildings
Skypool’s modular panel system allows pools to be built quickly and easily inside existing buildings. Installing a classic concrete pool would be too heavy and difficult. However, the lightness and versatility of Skypool makes this task easier and provides excellent results.
