What does the Barrier Reef Standards 5 Tick Certified Product mean to you, the customer?
There are clear and standardized procedures to each manufacturing stage of our pool shells. All materials supplied are rigidly controlled to meet performance specifications. There are no exceptions. This applies to gel coat, resins, glass reinforcing materials, additional fixtures and fittings. All these materials are Lloyds of London/ DNV approved products for the manufacture of fiberglass swimming pools.
The Manufacturing process is monitored, documented, and recorded at every step, from the beginning process to preparing the mold, through the full production, final detailing, inspection, storage, and transporting to the site. The operating conditions of the manufacturing facilities, such as temperature and humidity, are closely monitored and adjusted accordingly.
Once the pool is released from the mold, stringent and comprehensive testing is performed.The gel coat finish and color is visually inspected. The hardness of the surface is measured, as well as the wall thickness being checked more than 25 positions around the pool. This is done by ultrasonic mechanic testing and recording, Every pool is weighed using an electronic digital scale to ensure the specified amount of material has been used during production stages to meet standards.
It's a simple decision... when you want the best buy the best.
Every Pool is embossed with our name as well as a unique serial number which enables tracking and tracing of that pool easy for everyone to identify. Our master files record and document quality tests and results. We also keep and store a cut out of every pool shell manufactured in our Barrier Reef Pools library making it easy for future reference.
