1. Plan Your Acrylic Wall Panel Installation

Begin by obtaining final dimensions for your pool, including the size of surrounding concrete structures. Acrylic panels require 15-18 inch walls, compared to the typical 10-inch pool walls. Create a detailed plan for your concrete U-channel, factoring in any unique design elements, such as radius pools or hot tubs. Our team of engineers is available to assist with accurate measurements for complex projects.

To build a sturdy U-channel, use inserts and rebar to form a concrete structure for the acrylic panel. The U-channel should be 2-4 inches larger than the panel to accommodate proper placement. Reinforce the U-channel as needed for added support. The u-channel should be smooth for easy application of the waterproofing stage. 


3. Install Panel and Grout

Moving the panel is often one of the most challenging parts of this procedure. For a panel under 800lbs often times it can manageable with suction cups and straps. To lift and lower the panel into place. We recommend going with an industrial forklift or a crane for panels above 1000lbs.
