Fiberglass pools are nothing new. In fact, these types of pools have been around for almost 50 years. Fiberglass pools are factory-built one-piece shells made from layers of fiberglass, and resin, and coated with a gel coat, with a non-porous surface similar to cars, boats, and pool slides.
The glass steel swimming pool is supported by a new type of composite material glass fiber reinforced plastic. Compared with the conventional cement swimming pool, it has the characteristics of lightweight, easy transportation, and unique shape.
Japan's elementary, junior high, and high schools are said to have one of the highest percentages of swimming pools in the world. About half of them are FRP (fiber-reinforced plastic) pools, and the rest are made of stainless steel or concrete. FRP material has excellent durability, weather resistance, and shock resistance that will make it an excellent material for swimming pools. The first reason for the popularity of these FRP pools is their lightweight. One reason their portability is an advantage is that it can even install pools on school roofs in crowded urban centers, where space is often limited and expensive. Having a swimming pool on the roof also protects the privacy of students swimming, and in some cases the school considers them to be an alternative water source in the event of an emergency or disaster. There are also cases of swimming school facilities, where the ground floor is used as a parking area and the swimming pool is located on the second floor.
The next reason for the popularity of FRP pools is their freedom to shape smooth surfaces and edges. FRP pools are known for being able to meet a variety of necessities for special needs schools and their students. They are also recognized for their good thermal insulation properties when used in warm pools. FRP pools also take less time to install; small, easily transportable pool sections are manufactured and delivered to the delivery site and then assembled on-site, so there is no need to worry about wide enough road access.
