The mixture of fine 1mm pebbles and acrylic glass beads ensures an easy fuss-free, durable interior with a depth of colour that only glass can give. We can also do a full glass interior
Available in a beautiful array of colours, Silkstone will turn any ordinary swimming pool into a feature.
The most common colours used today are variations of blues, greens, gold or white or fully tiled. We have colour and texture samples from a very wide range of interior options for you to choose from.
FULLY TILED POOL If it’s the luxury of a fully tiled pool you’re looking for, Alpine specialise and pride themselves in fully tiled pools.
Alpine P.S. have chosen to only build concrete pools. Why?
One of the best things about choosing to build a concrete pool is that concrete is structurally sound and built to engineers specifications. Concrete pools allow you to build to any shape and size that will suit your environment and the most difficult situations. Steel reinforced concrete is the basis of your new pool, compliant with engineers drawings. They can even be constructed out of the ground if necessary. With concrete, you are able to add other features, including split levels, swim outs or walk-in entries, islands, rock pockets, cantilevered walkways, water features, waterfalls and your choice of interior finishes and colours. Some of the world’s oldest surviving swimming pools and existing structures are made from concrete – THINK ROME!
Shapes and sizes
One of the best advantages about a concrete pools is that it can be any shape or size you want – only dependent on your imagination and the size of your yard! We encourage you to think about not just the immediate future of your pool but its on-going life-span. Maybe there will be more kids using it down the track or maybe you will want it more for exercise in the future. Thinking about these things now will help you on your way to the perfect pool to fit your lifestyle now and in the future.
A big part of your perfect pool is its surroundings. Alpine helps you in every part of the planning, including paving, plants, pool fencing, water features, lighting and can arrange these to suit the look of your new pool.
To comply with Australian Standards, there are obligations for pool owners regarding restricting access to your pooled area. There are many designs and colours available.
Solar can significantly extend your swimming season using free energy from the sun, allowing your pool to stay at a usable temperature for longer.
Water storage tanks
Alpine can supply water storage tanks and can even construct under-ground water tanks as part of your pool construction.
Alpine can assist in the regular maintenance of your pool by providing a fully trained professional to regularly service and maintain it. Regular services can be fortnightly, monthly, bi-monthly or at request.
