Swimming pool surround with bullnosed edges and stainless steel backing

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Aquacut were asked to fabricate swimming pool surround tiles with a single slot from porcelain tile.  As the tiles are not strong enough in themselves (nor thick enough) Aquacut fabricated a small edge return and bonded two tiles together Рthe top edge was mini bullnosed and then each pair of bonded pieces was epoxied onto a stainless steel backing into which three slots had been cut to allow the free passage of water.  Curved corner pieces are still being fabricated and Aquacut are looking forward to seeing the finished tiles in situ (they will be bringing their swimming trunks!) Рthe photo shows the edge detail Рmore pics to follow.
