Modular pools in EPS: Innovation reaches the world of the pool
Until a few years ago, the construction of pool or spa elements was limited to traditional methods, such as concrete basins and internal elements (platforms, stairs, seats, etc.) in brick. However, the arrival and evolution of high-density expanded polystyrene (EPS) as a construction element has transformed the panorama in the Water Architecture sector.
In fact, this innovative material allows the creation of luxury pool and wellness area projects with reduced construction effort, adapting to the requested measurements and being delivered with a complete and 100% personalized assembly.
But what exactly is EPS? What is it made of? We tell you!
What is EPS for swimming pools?
The name EPS comes from the English acronym “Expanded Polystyrene”. This structured composite material is obtained through a manufacturing process in which polystyrene expands through the application of heat and steam, resulting in a light, rigid, high-density material (HSP core) and with a closed cellular structure of great lightness.
How is EPS made for pools and spas?
Before the manufacturing process, the different parts of the project are designed using 3D design tools. During manufacturing, using CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) tools and robotic arms, the pieces are cut from large blocks of expanded polystyrene, achieving absolute customization to the project requirements.
This opens up an infinite range of options, allowing you to obtain any desired pool shape or integrate elements such as hydromassage jets or underwater windows.
Features and advantages of the Modular System with EPS for swimming pools and spas
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) has a series of characteristics that make it unique and ideal as a solution for creating modular pools and wellness areas.
The main characteristics of EPS are:
– 100% customizable material: From extravagant shapes to minimalist designs, every detail adapts to your dreams. The versatility of EPS has the advantage of being able to adapt to any design and with a perfect finish.
–Acoustic damping: The integration of EPS in projects such as swimming pools located on roofs or terraces allows structural noise to be reduced almost entirely, by cushioning impacts. Thus preventing residents from hearing noises and vibrations through the building structures coming from bathers located in the pool or spa area.
– Cost reduction: We don’t just build pools, we create efficiency. We greatly reduce air conditioning and maintenance expenses, giving you a sustainable return on investment.
– Hygienic Character: Beyond beauty, we prioritize hygiene and safety.
– Sustainability of Expanded Polystyrene: Also known as “white cork“, this material is not only innovative but also 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly, reducing the use of cementitious material. At GodoPools we build not only for today, but also for a sustainable tomorrow.
– Quick assembly: Your personal oasis is built in record time, without sacrificing quality.
– Perfect operation of the hydromassage system: The harmony between innovation and functionality. Building a pool or spa with high-density expanded polystyrene is perfectly compatible with the installation of hydromassage jets.
– Easy installation: No hassle, no stress. We take care of shaping every detail so that its design is ergonomic and you only worry about enjoying yourself.
– Structural Weight Reduction: We break traditional barriers. Our modular EPS pool reduces structural weight by 95% and its lightness will allow you to explore unimaginable locations, such as attics, rooftops or balconies, all without compromising strength or durability. Featherlight EPS redefines construction, making it easy to create extraordinary designs.
– Thermal Insulation: The key to significant energy savings in heated pools. It achieves an 86% reduction in energy consumption, compared to traditional concrete constructions.
Fields of application of EPS in Water Architecture
EPS goes beyond swimming pools, embracing a wide field of applications thanks to its exceptional qualities and manufacturing possibilities.
Thanks to its great resistance, lightness and easily moldable character, the fields of application of our modular system include both structural swimming pool pools and elements for wellness areas, among other options.
Structural pool and spa vessels in EPS
Its lightness compared to structural materials such as concrete means that the EPS modular system reduces the total weight of the pool by up to 95%. This being an essential point for pools located in attics and terraces.
Another advantage is the installation possibilities, since it can be installed by crane once the house is completely finished and delivered, as well as the possibility of assembly by modules as if it were a 3D puzzle. In this way, we can use the existing access sizes in the home, if we do not have direct access by crane. Its design is fully customizable and configurable.
Architectural elements of the pool in EPS
For projects where we want to simplify the manufacturing processes, simultaneously reducing the weight of the internal elements, this system makes it essential thanks to its modular system for quick installation and its lightness compared to materials such as brick and concrete.
An example of this would be the installation of construction stairs or underwater recreation platforms for the installation of sun loungers.
Modular spa in EPS
Expanded polystyrene or EPS can be easily sculpted to create architectural forms and wellness elements such as air beds, seats with hydrojets, access stairs…
Carrying out a previous design in 3D allows the client to preview the design of the project. After confirmation of the design, in the manufacturing process using a numerically controlled mechanized process, each element is sculpted and shaped exactly to the design, with no margin for error or interpretation of the design.
Thus locating both the exact position of each hydrojet and shaping each curve and achieving a perfect ergonomic shape.
Conclusion: When to apply the modular system with EPS for swimming pools?
In conclusion, the GodoPools EPS Modular System redefines the standards of luxury pool and spa construction, offering a unique combination of innovation and performance. Whether you are designing a Water Architecture project in an attic, planning cutting-edge architectural elements or creating a dream modular wellness area, the EPS adapts to your needs with versatility and efficiency.
If you are an architect and would like to integrate the infinite possibilities of our modular system with EPS into any of your pool or spa projects, we invite you to contact the GodoPools team. We can shape your design so that it is aesthetic, functional and innovative.
