Styropool provides a long-term solution for insulating swimming pools, helping to create energy efficient pools with low running costs whilst also meeting current Building Regulations. Styropool is made from Styrofoam (extruded polystyrene) and is available in three different grades to meet the needs of a wide range of swimming pool types and depths.

Styropool meets the latest Building Regulations Part L, which requires domestic swimming pools to achieve a minimum thermal performance, with a U value of 0.25W/m2K. 100 % recycled Manufactured from extruded polystyrene, Styropool has a high compressive strength, making it ideal for insulating the base and retaining walls of a swimming pool.

The exceptionally low water absorption of Styropool means that it can be installed directly below concrete slabs whilst its unique grooves improve the key of cement and/or render in the pool installation.

Technical

Our experienced technical team will work with you to determine the best Styropool solution to ensure that your swimming pool meets Building Regulations.

Styropool is available in three different grades to meet the needs of a wide range of swimming pool types and sizes:

GradeCompressive Strength Design Load
Styropool 300300 kN/m2130 kN/m2.
Styropool 500500 kN/m2180 kN/m2.
Styropool 700700 kN/m2250 kN/m2.

Typical Example

Rectangular Pool:  10m x 5m
Area:  50m2
Perimeter:  30LM
P/A = 0.6
Pool Depth:  1.5m
Construction:  200mm concrete on to Styropool insulation with 100mm Styropool 300 in the walls and 100mm Styropool 300 in the floor.
U value:  0.24 w/m24K

The design load is that load on the insulation which will give a maximum compression of 2% after 50 years.

Styropool is manufactured from extruded polystyrene and is blown using recycled CO2.  Styropool has Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of zero and Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than five.  It is 100% recyclable.

Styropool offers exceptionally low water absorption with less than 0.5% after 28 days immersion.

Styropool and Building Regulations

Building Regulations Part L1A 2010 requires a swimming pool that is part of a dwelling to achieve a minimum thermal performance, equivalent to a U value of 0.25 W/m2K.  The U Value is derived from a combination of variables including:

Ground Type
Differences between soil type may impact on the calculation.

Pool Construction Method
Every material component contributes to the overall U value and this will vary from project to project.

Structural Demands
This will determine the grade of Styropool and its associated thermal performance.

P/A Ratio
Where P is the perimeter and A is the pool area. The higher the P/A ratio the more insulation required.

Pool Shape
The shape of the pool will impact the P/A ratio where the pool area is constant.

Depth of Pool
The greater the depth the better the U value.

Insulation location
Styropool can be installed above or below the structural element of the swimming pool.  The closer the insulation is to the heating source the faster the insulation will respond and the pool temperature will rise faster but decline faster when the heat source is switched off.  If located below the structural element, it will create a heat sink and therefore once at temperature the pool will have a much slower heat loss if the source is switched off.
