Frequently Asked Questions

What is Pool Coping?

The words pool coper and pool coping are used to describe a paving product that is specifically designed to go around a swimming pool or spa or to be used as steps or to cap a wall. The exposed edges that extend into the pool are shaped most commonly into either a bullnose or square edge.

What is a Pool Beam?

A swimming pool beam is the width of concrete around the swimming pool onto which the pool paving or coping is laid. Most pool beams are 200mm thick. Our 230mm wide copers are designed for this beam width giving you a 30mm overlap (the amount the coper extends into the pool). Some pools are designed and concrete poured for a larger beam. Our 500mm copers are used in this instance. Fibreglass pools often require a 500mm or 600mm coper If you are yet to have your pool beam poured contact us for advice on the best width for your pool.

Why should I use a specialist pool paving installation team?
There are many considerations when it comes to choosing and laying pool paving. Often we are called on to fix-up problems that have occurred because these fundamental considerations have not been made. For your peace of mind use a specialist in the field.

Can I use coping or the bullnose paving for anything else?

You can use pool coping or bullnose pavers for steps, wall capping or garden bed edging.

Is delivery included in the price of the paving and/or coping?

Delivery is generally not included in the price of the paving or coping.  If you choose to use The Pool Paving Specialists for your installation as well as your supply we may be able to deliver free of charge depending on the quantity of paving required.
