L-Shaped Three-Side Support Panel
An L-shaped three-side support acrylic pool wall or window provides 270 degrees of beauty. With a top edge free of constraints and the ability to create complete transparency across three sides of your pool, it’s one of the most stunning designs available.
A range of dimensions are available for your L-shaped acrylic pool wall. Lengths up to 300” can be produced without the use of chemical bonding.
This style offers several angle joining options. Choose from acrylic bonding, thermoforming, mullion, or silicone sealing.
Bonded Junctions in an L-Shaped Acrylic Pool Wall
An L-shaped acrylic pool wall/window typically features a chemically bonded junction. This is by far the most popular choice for the style. Typically, this is a less expensive alternative to the thermoformed transparency. Designers considering bonded junctions of this configuration must be cognizant of the width; transportation regulations will impose limits unless onsite bonding is utilized.
An L-shaped swimming pool window of this style uses thermoformed junctions. Because of the additional processes associated with this style, it is often the most expensive. Designers considering thermoformed junctions of this configuration must be cognizant of the width; again, transportation regulations will impose limits unless onsite bonding is utilized.
A cost-effective way to create an L-shaped pool transparency is to use mullions with independent silicone joints at the junctions. Mullions typically present a cost savings benefit because bonding is not required and the costly logistical issues imposed by transportation are eliminated.
This style utilizes silicone at the junctions; consequently, because of the lack of support, panel thickness must be increased. This has the potential to offset cost savings traditionally offered with the use of silicone.
When designing an L-shaped three-side support pool window, the intended application will impact the top edge style. See available pool window edges here.
